Decks. Sometimes they’re purely functional, and not very exciting to look at. But, that doesn’t have to be the case. You can take the most basic deck and elevate it into a conversation piece. Learn how to take your deck from drab to fab with features you can add yourself or through a deck builder like Michigan-based Titan Decks.
Plan Out The Spaces
Your deck can be set up similarly to how your house is. By space planning, you can create designated areas for dining and relaxing. Add an outdoor rug to the sitting area to add more depth and visual appeal. Place an outdoor dining set close to the grill and you have a functional outdoor dining room.
If your deck has space underneath, perhaps it’s above your walkout lower level, consider adding a concrete slab for more seating and storage.
Add Some Shade
It can get hot out there on your deck. Think about adding a shade structure such as an arbor, awning, or pergola. Not only will it create a cozy, shaded spot to protect you from those beating rays, it will also add visual interest to the area.
A screened porch also allows you to enjoy the outdoors, with protection from the elements.
Throw in a hot tub, and no one will ever want to leave.
Light It Up
Add some ambiance with lighting. Lead guests up the deck stairs with a lit path. Hang string lights around your shade structure. There are so many different lighting options to give oomph to your outdoor space.
Just Add Green
Potted flowers and vines can add that bold splash of color. Big, leafy plants can give your deck a tropical feel. Just by adding plants and flowers, you can create a deck oasis rivaling a tropical rainforest. Just add forest animals for the perfect effect.
