Decks can seamlessly bridge your indoor and outdoor spaces and provide an appealing and comfortable place where you can enjoy the scenery. A deck can be designed to fit your home’s style and your lifestyle, so you can maximize your investment. If you are unsure of where to start when it comes to deck designs, here are some suggestions from Handyman Connection of Lincoln:
Modern homes will benefit from the eye-catching appeal of a mixed-material deck. Try combining wood decking with several concrete elements in the form of a low wall or stairs. Wood adds warmth and a rustic appeal while the concrete lends a chic industrial look. You can also mix and match materials when it comes to furniture.
This deck design is perfect if you have a narrow lot. Multi-leveled decks allow you to make the most of the space, as you can turn each level into a different section. For instance, you can transform the level nearest to your house into an outdoor kitchen for easy access to your indoor kitchen. The next level could house a fire pit followed by a cozy seating area for a private hangout space.
These are similar to a multi-leveled deck in the sense that they have varying heights. The similarities stop there, however, as the layers on this deck style are there for aesthetic purposes. It creates a minimalistic look that pairs well with a contemporary home. If your home is slightly elevated, the layers could be used as steps leading to the deck.
If your home features a lush landscape with abundant trees and greenery, why not integrate your deck into nature? Consider installing a freestanding deck platform in a secluded area to create a romantic space. Nestle it among tall trees to help it blend into the surroundings.
