A deck is a functional addition to any home. Whether you want to remodel the deck or you are building a brand new one, it is important that you get it right. There are many deck designs to choose from and it is up to you to choose one that fits your home. Let’s check out some of the most unique deck ideas to upgrade your home’s exterior.
Dreaming of a grand vacation but don’t have the time to go? Why pick a deck design that is inspired by the great outdoors? A neutral deck can be built using sustainable wood materials. Liven it up with the colors of summer using colorful umbrellas, chair cushions, and some plants. The family will have a great time basking in the sun right outside in your deck.
Having an outdoor area intended for entertaining works best for families who love to party. The deck plan can be designed to hold a few party features such as a fire pit, a hammock, an outdoor kitchen, plenty of seats and possible some room for dancing.
To fully utilize the backyard, you may optimize it to have plenty of relaxation amenities. A raised deck can be installed with a lower paved patio. A hot tub may also be added and some mood lights. This type of design will also give the illusion of having a larger backyard.
Having a huge tree right outside your home should not be regarded as a nuisance. You can incorporate it along with the deck’s design. Aside from extending the space, a tree-hugging deck is a nice and unique way to help with environmental-conservation efforts.
Most modern homes are designed with sharp angles. Balance the defined edges with a curved deck. Play with different materials such as concrete and wood to achieve a complementary design.
Outdoor Living Space
A deck is where you can enjoy most of the numbered days of summer. Extending the living space out in the open will guarantee plenty of fun time either during the day or until the wee hours of the night. Get a deck that can accommodate al fresco dining, barbeques, or as the kids’ play area.
Tiny Space? No Problem
Modern cabin-type homes are popular these days. A tiny deck off one side will make a huge statement. All that you need is a space that will hold some chairs and a small table. It can be the perfect place to relax, have some coffee, or serve as a reading nook. This is especially great for a cabin house that has wooded surroundings.
The deck can serve as an outdoor bar. A concrete side table can function both as a bar counter or as a buffet table. Underneath it can also be installed with built-in storage units, additional seating, and serving tables.
There are many ways to turn the deck into your most favorite “room” of the house. All you need to do is to clearly visualize how the deck will function. This will help you decide which design path to take for your deck.
