A new outdoor deck or patio adds an entirely new dimension to your home that will be admired by many. However, homeowners need to make sure that their new outdoor living area has everything needed to be as functional as possible, which puts a major emphasis on comfort.

To enhance the level of comfort for your deck or patio, installing a built-in seating area will keep you and your guests as cozy as possible.

Paul Construction specializes in the construction of built-in seating areas, and we’re here to help spark some inspiration for your outdoor deck or patio. Read on for some built-in seating ideas.

Curved Railing/Bench

Not only does building in a bench with your railing help save space, it also looks great. A curved wood railing with a matching bench built into the bottom goes well on an outdoor deck and creates an abundance of seating space and a clean, cohesive space. It’s a perfect area for relaxing or eating outside.

Corner Cushioned Bench

Building an L-shaped bench in a corner of your outdoor patio or deck utilizes space and creates a cozy nook that you can enjoy. With this design, you can have your back supported by a wall but still enjoy the open air environment of your outdoor living space.

Adding cushions and pillows to this L-shaped bench makes for a particularly good reading, napping, and relaxing space. You can even get creative and add a storage space underneath your cushions.

Fire Pit Wall Seatingtrex vs. fiberon materials

A fire pit enhances any outdoor patio and deck, but you need to build it with the proper seating arrangement. Your fire pit needs to be engaging and have the ability to support multiple guests, day or night.

Building a small wall around your fire pit encloses the area for more comfort, and building seating into the wall creates an incredibly relaxing spot. Instead of pulling up chairs to sit around your fire pit, you’re seating is already there, which benefits your guests and the environment you’re trying to create.

Garden Love Seats

If you’re a homeowner who’s proud of the garden you’ve grown around your patio or deck, you should thoroughly embrace it. With love seats built into your garden area, you can create a popular and enjoyable outdoor gathering spot that’s supported by your lovely garden. By building love seat containers with the same material as your deck or patio, you can create a smooth transition between spaces.

To get the most space, comfort, and innovative design out of your outdoor deck or patio, incorporate built-in seating for even more functionality. You’ll add new dimensions to your outdoor space and establish a pleasing seating environment that you, your family, and your guests will thoroughly enjoy.
