3 Tips to Help You Create the Perfect Deck

It’s that time of year again. More and more people are spending time outdoors. Some would say it’s the perfect weather for sitting out on the deck and enjoying the fresh air. We agree!

If you don’t already have a deck, now’s the time to get one. If you already have one, why not spruce it up? It will be a getaway in your own backyard!

Here are three tips that we’ve found to help you create the perfect deck.

1. Pick a deck, any deck. There are many different types of decks that will work with the space you have. Panoramic decks are perfect for homes with spectacular views. Tiered decks add a unique layout to your backyard, giving you the option to section off areas for different activities. Additionally, safety is an important part of any deck, but sometimes railings block the beautiful view. Try glass panels instead! They’re available in a variety of styles.

2. “Deck it out” with style! (Get it? See what we did there?) Bring the comforts of the indoors outside. You can make your deck just like your living room. Add matching furniture, a rug, comfy cushions, and you’ll never want to leave. There are also many great outdoor fabrics you can use to add color to your seating arrangement. Add some stylish storage to your deck to keep everything neat.

3. Pick plants that pop. Possibly Petunias? Plants can help beautify your deck. Vertical hanging baskets add height to your deck, and can block out the harsh lines of the decking structure. You can also use large containers. Brightly colored plants are another welcome splash of color. If you love gardening, plant some of your fruits or veggies in planters on your deck.
