Home is where you unwind. Whether it’s the bedroom or the living room, homeowners these days are increasingly conscious about building that calming, comfy and beautiful sanctuary. But beyond these indoor spaces, the outdoor patio or balcony deck is also a great place to relax after work while rewarding your lungs with fresh air.
An outdoor space that is well-furnished not only acts as a natural extension of one’s home, but it also adds character to the entire abode. And what better way to further add character to your home than with a wooden decking for your balcony that radiates endearing charm? It is no wonder The Floor Gallery is seeing a growing number of homeowners looking to build that outdoor haven with wood decking.
However, as solid wood decking is an option that requires closer maintenance and care, composite wood decking has become an increasingly popular and stylish alternative. We’ve gathered a few of our composite balcony decking projects, which we hope will inspire. Have a look:
Given the location, this balcony would bear the brunt of Singapore’s tropical weather – especially the heat! To avoid “hot dancing” on the deck, the unit’s owners chose Eco Wood Composite Decking.
This wood plastic composite decking choice uses, as its name suggests, eco-friendly wood and has a unique and patented composition of 2/3 wood flour and 1/3 polyethylene. What this means is that it has less plastic than conventional composite boards, making the heat under bare feet equivalent to that of solid wood and more comfortable to walk on. This WPC decking is indeed one “cool” deck. And the lovely wood texture adds an oasis feel to the balcony too, especially with the breath-taking view!

Where there is water on floor surfaces, slipperiness and safety is often an issue. However, with the use of The Floor Gallery’s Eco Fusion Wood Decking at a condominium at Gerald Drive, residents can feel safe playing around the pool deck.
This outdoor composite decking material has slip-resistant properties and, unlike regular solid wood decking, it is also splinter-free! Its durable qualities also make it great for long-term use, especially when the pool deck expects many visitors daily to test its strength. It is perfect for active children who love playing with water outdoors. To top it off, this outdoor decking also uses eco-friendly wood.
If you do not fancy wood grain patterns because it clashes with your home design (but still want to enjoy the feel of wood under your feet), the grooved composite wood might just be the right fit. Just look at that beautiful balcony flooring! With subtle gaps between the boards of only 5mm, this groove-design deck from a condominium unit at the Waterfront Isle looks smooth and seamless. The homeowners of this unit now have a balcony exuding an earthy, cosy and homely feel, but with a contemporary touch.
As one of the options available under TFG’s Eco Wood Composite Decking range, this composite balcony decking has all the wonderful properties mentioned in The Azure project above, and more! An additional feature of this special deck is that you can sand it down in future without affecting the groove design! Along with all the other benefits of Eco Wood Composite Decking, you may have just found the most innovative decking for your balcony.
The Floor Gallery offers two types of eco-friendly wood decking for balconies or outdoor decks: Eco Wood Composite Decking (as seen in Project #1 and #3), and Eco Fusion Deck (as illustrated in Project#2).
With more than 10 designs and colours to choose from both composite decking varieties, homeowners will be spoilt for choice. For that classic brown wood, the Auburn Brown Embossed design will do the trick. But, if you’re looking for lighter colours to brighten up the space, you might like the Gentle Grey Eco Fusion Deck. On the other hand, darker options to consider are Coffee Brown and Robust Grey.
Aesthetics aside, our WPC decking choices are accredited with Green Label Singapore, amongst many other quality certification labels. With great confidence, we also provide warranties for insect and fungus infestations, so that you can enjoy your balcony or outdoor deck with a peace of mind.
