Long gone are the days where an outdoor deck is simply a standard wooden rectangular structure off the side of your house.
Now, you can choose from unique and custom materials, designs, décor and more to make your deck one of the most unique features of your home!
If you’re building a deck from scratch, it’s possible to create any outdoor space you can dream of. Instead of wooden planks, homeowners should consider building their deck with maintenance free decking. Composite decking drastically cuts down on yearly maintenance and comes in a variety of colors and stains to match your vision for your new outdoor space.
Deck railings are a place where your design can really make a bold statement. Instead of standard materials, consider using metal or decorative spindles. Even a deck’s stairs can make a huge statement; a deck with a spiral staircase is a unique feature that everyone is sure to love!
If you already have a deck, there are plenty of ways to bring it from basic to bold. Some of these new outdoor decking ideas are sure to inspire some cool ways to update your own home. For instance, adding a pergola to your deck gives you a place to hang lights or plants (or even outdoor curtains!), and gives your deck more shade and more of a roomlike feeling.
Adding an outdoor fireplace, beverage station, or even unique and bold patio furniture are all ways to make your existing deck stand out and transform it into one of the best places in your home.
