The summer months are the perfect time to enjoy the sunlight and create a customized deck for your home. You can make your backyard your personal sanctuary, a place where you can get away from the world.
This can be accomplished with a customized deck that fits your lifestyle and provides many amenities. Here are five ways to get this done.
- Determine the style of deck that best fits your home. You may prefer a wraparound deck or a simple hardwood porch, but it should mesh well with your home’s style. Don’t go lavish for a simple country home, for instance. This can take away from the look of your home rather than enhance it.
- Analyze your backyard. If there’s a nice view of mountains and trees, then consider a wooden deck that sits high enough to view the beautiful scenery. If you have a nice view of a lake or ocean, you may want a customized deck that gives you the perfect view of the waterfront.
- Choose a platform for your deck. Wood is an excellent material and the one commonly used to construct a deck. However, other materials can be used, such as concrete or slab. These are sturdy and look just as good as wood.
- Put a cover on your deck. This will allow you to be outdoors throughout the year. You can choose a retractable awning or permanent roof. With a permanent roof for your deck, you can include several amenities, such as a large flat-screen television for a home theater feel along with speakers, fancy patio décor, and a fireplace without the concern of weather damage. If you choose an awning, you’ll have the option to leave it up or retract it to fully enjoy the weather.
- Include a kitchen with your custom deck. This latest trend is an excellent choice for a large deck, allowing you to entertain guests while cooking and having everything you need at hand. This prevents you from having to walk back and forth inside your home, wasting energy and increasing your electric bill.
All of these tips will help enhance the look of your home as you choose the ideal customized deck. With the right deck, you can increase your home’s value and earn up to 75% of the cost for the deck if you choose to sell your home.
