Introducing NeoTimber’s definitive guide on how to incorporate composite decking steps into your outdoor garden space.
Something we are constantly asked about is how best to integrate composite decking steps into a design. Steps are often a necessity with many decks due to the fact that their designs are often raised off ground level. So if you are still in the design phases of your project and eager to get a grasp on how you can incorporate decking steps into your design, then look no further…

Our Top Composite Decking Step Designs
Composite decking steps can come in all shapes and sizes. Below, we offer a guide on some of the types of decking step designs you can incorporate into your project to create not only a functional space but a distinct looking one too!
#1 – Make Your Decking Steps A Showpiece With A Cascading Step Design
A popular feature within deck builds, cascading decking steps wrap around the deck or the edges of a deck.
#2 – Add Flair And Create A Curved Decking Step
An attractive and functional approach to your decking step design. A curved deck can be a real showstopper.
#3 – Keep It Contemporary With Wrap Around Steps
A modern looking design indeed. Consider whether you are to mitre your edges or leave them non-mitred when designing your project.
#4 – Opt For A Good Old Fashioned Classic Freestanding Step
Traditional and conventional, usually paired with a balustrade for additional support and safety.
#5 – Keep Things Neat With An Integrated Decking Step
The neat design of integrating a step into the design of the project keeps everything tidy.

#4 – Use Composite Decking Boards For The Rise Of Your Steps
Keep things looking consistent and opt for using a composite deck board on the rise of your decking step area.
#5 – Use Skirting Trims For Low Steps Or Curved Step Areas
Use our NeoTimber® skirting trims along the step framework to form the fascia for the rise of the step. This method just neatly finishes the front of your steps complementing the rest of your deck nicely.
