Each spring, the Minnesota deck builders at UglyDeck.com put together a list of the top deck design trends for the coming summer. We keep our fingers on the pulse of all things related to deck design and decking materials and love keeping our customers updated on what’s in vogue. Whether you’re looking to build a deck this summer or need some inspiration to freshen up your deck design, these decking trends are sure to help.
Composite Decking Material: Over the last few years, composite decking and maintenance free decking materials have exploded in popularity. These decking materials don’t require staining and their maintenance costs are much lower than a standard wooden deck.
Multi-Level Decks: Different than multi-story decks, multi-level decks feature a contemporary design that creates a natural separation of entertaining spaces. A raised dining space or sunken hot tub area are great ways to incorporate multiple levels in your deck design.
Two-Toned Designs: Gone are the days when decks were only stained a single color. Incorporate complimentary colors in decking material or decking accessories. Matching lighter-colored deck railings with darker decking boards is an easy way to create a unique deck design with color.
Accent Lighting: Accent lighting is an affordable and efficient way to add an elegant touch to your deck. Solar powered options have become increasingly popular and are able to offer as much versatility as electrically powered lights.
