Many people contact us saying how desperately they need a new deck. Often their small, old, wooden decks are more of a splinter-filled eyesore than an extension of their homes allowing for enjoyable outdoor living.  If this describes you, you’ll want to read this.

1. Make it Custom

With such amazing developments in design and production options, your deck can and should be an expression of your personality and lifestyle. Ask yourself these questions and imagine how you could fully enjoy your new outdoor living space:

  • How many people will use it regularly?
  • How often will you entertain?
  • What elements are important to you to include?

    For example: seating, table, fire features, hot tub, bar, shade, grilling/cooking area? 
    We’ve created some inspiration boards on our Pinterest page to help you continue to imagine what your dream deck looks like. You can also check out this Trex decking product page.

2. Make it Cozy

Another popular trend this year is outdoor furniture that looks and feels like indoor furniture. These pieces feature soft and cozy cushions but are manufactured for outdoor use. This trend for creating an enjoyable and comfortable outdoor space is beautifully represented through the Danish word: Hygge. (pronounced Hue-guh) Hygge refers to a feeling or moment that is cozy, charming, or special.

It’s more of a conscious appreciation and a slowing down to enjoy the people and things around you. In our fast paced world, there is something very attractive and even necessary about this pursuit. A space to rest, connected to your home, yet outside.

Picture yourself breathing the fresh air and enjoying the sunshine, yet with the comfort and ease of a living room atmosphere. We love the outdoor furniture options our friends at Heat n’ Sweep offer. Stop by and check out their beautiful showroom!

3. Make it Cool

What will make you love spending time on your deck with family and friends? What are some cool elements that will make you never want to leave? We’ve highlighted a few of our favorites. Which elements are must haves for you?

One of the coolest trends we’re seeing this year is borrowed from commercial architecture such as horizontal steel cables instead of vertical deck railing.

A few other cool trends include built in bars, fire features, and brick ovens. To guide your imagination, we’ve gathered some images for inspiration on our Pinterest page. You can also check out some beautiful examples HERE.
