7 Deck Design Ideas to Make Your Outside Space Stand Out [Part 2]
4) A Reading Nook
What’s the best way to get your bookworm family member to enjoy the outside? Build them the perfect reading nook. Arrange a quiet corner on your deck that is sheltered from the hustle and bustle of your backyard, adding a comfortable chair and end table. Small design elements, like a well-placed lamp, allow anyone to enjoy the reading nook even past sunset.
5) A Workout Area
You may not have considered it, but especially if you don’t have kids, your deck can actually turn into the perfect workout area. Nobody wants to lift weights or do yoga in the garage, but that’s often the only place where you have enough space in your home. A deck allows you both space and the fresh air needed to make your workouts fun when the weather plays along.
6) An Outside Kitchen
Nothing is better for entertaining on your back deck than a full (or partial) kitchen on your back deck. No more having to trek into the house to get the necessary food and utilities. Instead, you can keep everything you need right where your guests are enjoying the warm weather. An outdoor kitchen requires a custom-built deck with the necessary access, but it will be well worth your efforts.
7) The Starting Area For Your Playground
Especially for parents of young children, a deck can be both a blessing and a curse. It gives you a larger area to play, but at the same time gives you constant worries about children falling off its side. But if you build it secure, you can actually allow it to blend into your backyard play area seamlessly. For example, a slide down the side of your deck allows your children to exit your deck and get into your backyard in a way that’s both fun and safe.
Of course, these are just some of the countless deck design ideas that you can plan for you your backyard deck to both increase its functionality and allow it to spend out. A well-designed deck is the perfect feature in your backyard, expanding your living space and helping you enjoy the outside. With the right deck design, your outdoor space will become that much more fun. Contact us to start designing!
