If you’ve decided you’re ready to design and build your own Bucks County backyard living space, you may be overwhelmed by all of the options available. With so many choices, it can be difficult to decide on the right combination of backyard features for your family and the space you have to work with.
Any Bucks County outdoor living space needs a centerpiece, which will likely be used more often than any other aspect of the space. If you’re looking to work with wood, there are two solid options – decks and gazebos. These are a few factors you should consider when making this choice:
- Shade or sun – Gazebos provide you with an escape from the summer heat into a relaxing, shaded outdoor space. If you’d like to enjoy the views of your backyard while feeling the cool breeze, but without sweating through your shirt, a gazebo makes an excellent choice. If you don’t mind the heat and would rather bask in the summer sun, a deck may be the better choice for you.
- Solitude or socializing – A gazebo offers an escape not just from the heat, but also from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Gazebos are incredibly relaxing, quiet spaces that offer peaceful seclusion. However, they can also be used to entertain small groups of friends or relatives. If you’d prefer to host big summer barbeques and backyard parties with many friends, neighbors, and relatives, then a deck will provide you with that versatility.
- Combine the two – If you’d like to always have the choice between shade and sun, or solitude or socializing, consider a combination of both features. These can be separate, with a deck connected to your house and a secluded gazebo out in the backyard. Or you can combine the two with a gazebo connected to your deck. The combination of these two will offer you the most versatility for your Bucks County outdoor living space.
If you’re stuck between a deck or gazebo, consider what you and your family members would like to get out of your outdoor space to arrive at the right choice.
