Choosing The Right Deck Design

Choosing The Right Deck Design

When it comes to designing your deck, how you plan to use your deck is the primary factor in determining the right deck design for your project. Do you entertain often, what is the size of your back yard, what are you planning on using the space for? A deck should not only be big enough to accommodate guests but should also incorporate all the accessories you intend to have for outdoor entertainment. 

The average size of a deck ranges between 300 and 400 square feet depending on the yard. Although some have the space available for a wrap around deck or multi-level decks closer to 1200-1600 square feet. Different people have different styles and preferences when choosing the shape of their deck. It requires a lot of skill and creativity when designing the shape of your deck to fit into the available space. Plenty of space gives you more abilities to design how you want your deck to look like. When you partner with Decked Out Builders, we will work closely with you to make sure you get everything you want out of your new deck. We can build simple decks, multi-level decks, pool decks and more.

Multi-Tier Decks

A multi-level deck is an excellent choice for larger properties or properties that the elevation changes. If your property happens to have a tricky terrains like hills, slopes and/or rocky landscaping, a multi-level deck might be the best design choice for adequate space. A multi level deck is also great for if you plan to have a kitchen area, hot tub or overlooking a pool. Each level provides space used for different purpose. Levels need only be separated by one or two steps to give your design greater depth and dimensionality.

Wraparound Decks

A wraparound deck is like an old-fashioned wraparound porch. Unlike a porch, parts of it can be larger, more uneven, and look more like a room. Wraparound decks also usually tend to be slightly elevated.

2nd Story Decks

A 2nd story deck will maximize your outdoor space or make your backyard more accessible to more areas of your house. When building a 2nd story deck there are additional ways you can utilize the deck like screening in a patio below or using as storage space.

Floating  Decks

A floating deck also known as free standing is a deck that rests on the ground and is not attached to your house. A floating deck is a great idea for a relaxing area in the middle of a garden or somewhere scenic in your yard. Floating decks generally do not require a building permit since they are not structural or attached to any structure.

Pool Decks

An above ground pool with a deck is more appealing than an in-ground pool with out the hassle. When designing your pool deck we want to know what you plan to use with the space, will you have large gatherings frequently, are you looking for just a platform or maybe something simple in size just big enough for 2 lounging chairs. There are a lot of variables between oval and round pool decks and with the space you have. When designing your pool deck due to the building CODES a latched gate is required if there Is no privacy fence so that limits some designs.
