Decked Out: 7 Great Deck Ideas For Your Home
We’re blessed with mostly great outdoor weather all year round and it’s time to relax and enjoy the benefits. One of the best ways to do that is by getting a deck for your home that can meet all of your personal needs. This post is going to give you 7 great deck ideas so that you can start designing yours today.
Outdoor Bar: A deck is the perfect place to build an outdoor bar because it brings the fun to your deck area. If you like to entertain, or want to enjoy a cool refreshing drink outdoors, you can go straight to your backyard and do just that.
Seating: A deck is meant to be enjoyed. Why not add various seating throughout your deck? There are all types of seating that you can add to meet your needs. You can even build your deck with seating running along the sides so that no matter where you go on the deck, there is available seating. This is especially beneficial if you do a lot of entertaining. In addition, you can incorporate couches, lounging chairs, and even a hammock to ensure you have a very comfortable and relaxing experience. Having available and comfortable seating will really allow your guests to relax while they enjoy your deck.
Complement Your Pool: Take it up a notch and build a deck surrounding your pool. Lift the lid on the barbecue and add an eatery and you’re ready for lunch after a great swim. Depending on the type of deck, you can even incorporate a towel rack so that you have a designated space for your swimming towels. Another great idea to consider if you plan on implementing a deck around your pool is to build a wall with a door that separates the pool from other guests in case of splashing.
Fire pit: Bonfires are perfect for outdoors, especially when it starts to cool down a bit. Add a fire pit in the middle of your deck to stay toasty on a cooler night or when you have the urge for a glass of red wine by an open fire.
Beautify: One of the cool things about building a deck is that it’s very flexible in its design. If you wish to add some beauty to your deck, you can incorporate a spot for a garden that can run along your deck, in the middle, or wherever you see fit. Similarly, if you enjoy water, you can incorporate space for a beautiful water feature.
Multi –Level Deck: Do you have a lot of things you want to incorporate on your deck, but don’t feel you have the space to do so? One way to solve this problem is by having a multi-level deck. This way, everything doesn’t have to be on one level, making your deck appear cluttered. For instance, if you want to differentiate where you eat and where you relax on your deck, your eatery can be on the 1st level of your deck, while your patio furniture can be on the 2nd level.
Storage Space: Sometimes you don’t want to pile everything in your house or garage. A deck with built-in storage is the perfect place to store outdoor items or items that are too large to fit anywhere else. The best thing is that no one would even know you were storing items under there.
