Turning Your Deck into an Outdoor Oasis
So you have a deck, but what have you done with it? Maybe it’s time for a deck restoration.
After all, your deck is a blank canvas with the potential to be the entertaining space you have always wanted. Practical. Affordable. Beautiful. If you’re looking to turn your deck into an outdoor oasis, the contractors at HousePro are here to help you realize your vision. Here are some ideas to get you thinking.
Start with seating. Built-in seating is both aesthetically pleasing and very practical. Built-in benches can serve as tables, platforms and dividers, turning simple layouts into multi-use entertainment spaces.
Define space with an overhead structure. A pergola, or open roof, can create visual interest and add shade for those hot summer days. A pergola can also define eating or sitting areas, visually add height to your deck and add a finished quality than feels more like a “room.”
Plan for plants. Built-in planters are a way to incorporate vegetation seamlessly into the environment.
Think about necessities and amenities. As you create plans with your deck builder, think practically. Where is the best place for your grill? Where do you want your outdoor table? Consider what you and your family like to do and build accordingly.
Details make a difference. Handrails. Decorative post caps. Lighting. All the little things make a huge difference on a deck. The more comfortable a space it is for you and your friends, the more time you will spend.
