While it’s no surprise that people like spending time out on their deck, they often forget to utilize that space underneath their deck. Why not create two great, functional outdoor spaces out of your one deck? If you’re looking for deck restoration or a fresh idea for that outdoor space, below are a few ideas to get you started:
With a few creative touches, you can give that under-the-deck space a cozy bistro feel. String decorative cafe lights along the underdecking, add a small shelf to hold mugs and glasses, and spray paint some metal chairs and a small cafe table for a unique, sophisticated space for guests.
If you have a large amount of space underneath your deck, it may be the perfect place for your hot tub. Add pegs on the wall to hang towels, as well as a storage unit for extra towels.
For a more utilitarian space, turn the space underneath your deck into a workspace. A large picnic table can double as a place to eat and a workspace for potting plants or other outdoor projects. A storage unit can hold tools, supplies, and seasonal items. Placing your hanging plants or potted plants around this area not only brightens up the space, but they’re easy to tend to with all your tools close at hand.
Whatever you dream up for the space under your deck, UglyDeck.com has the deck solutions that are right for you! Before revamping that space, talk to the deck builders at UglyDeck.com about installing underdecking, a deck material that protects the area below your deck from the elements. Like their maintenance free decks, UglyDeck.com’s underdecking products are durable, easy to install, and resistant to freezing weather, rust, fading, and mold. And, since underdecking uses your existing outdoor deck, it’s a very cost-effective way to gain some extra outdoor space.
