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.
A Look at Different Deck Design Types:
Getting The Most Out Of Your Deck Design
Whether you have a multi-level deck, a 2nd story deck, or a ground-level deck, we can help you choose the right deck design to enhance your home’s curb appeal and showcase your natural surroundings. We can make any feature of your deck shine, whether it is an integral functional component, or a showstopping fireplace, pool, or outdoor kitchen. The right deck design will elevate these features and turn them into the visual centerpiece of your outdoor living space.
You May Not Know Exactly What You Want – And That’s OK!
We can recommend the best layout concept based on your living needs, entertaining style, and family needs to guide you in the right direction as we collaborate on your deck design. There may be things we recommend that you’ve never considered, and once you see them on paper, you may fall in love with the concept. So, it’s always a great idea to keep an open mind as your dream deck creation comes to life.
We encourage open communication throughout the entire design process, and we’ll share our design plans with you until every last detail makes you smile!
Make The Needs Of Your Family Top Priority
Do you have small children, or perhaps elderly parents that live with you? When you’re designing your deck, you may need to take additional safety precautions or ensure the use of non-slip, low-maintenance composite materials on surfaces and stairs.
In addition, a sturdy deck railing can enhance your design while making safety a top priority, without taking away from the expansive feeling of your deck. We can make your railing into a beautiful statement piece – rather than just an afterthought that needs to be there. There are many deck designs to choose from, although the ultimate decision will likely be based on the structure of your outdoor space and the unique needs of your family.
Add Standout Features To Your Deck Design
Your deck design should complement your home’s interior, while also matching the overall tone and aesthetic of your home’s exterior. If you live on a lake with an amazing view, you will probably want a deck that flows seamlessly with an open concept for indoor/outdoor living, with an airy and bright feeling. If your home is nestled among a natural or garden-style setting, a wood deck with a matching wood railing will fit in perfectly. However, if your home has more of a modern or industrial style tone, you may want to choose a deck design enhanced by non-traditional elements, such as a stainless steel cable railing.
The sky is truly the limit when creating the deck of your dreams. You may want to incorporate an area for a garden or potted plants, a large seating area with a sunken fire pit, or enjoy extra shade from a pergola. At the end of the day, your custom deck design should make YOU happy.
