It doesn’t matter whether you’re renovating a current deck, or looking for a deck builder to add one to your home, there are a few features you should consider. Incorporating certain deck details can help transform an average patio deck into a fully functioning entertainment space.
Ask your deck builder about the following deck details:
A Fire pit
Adding a fire pit to any deck adds a relaxing ambiance to any patio deck. It doesn’t matter where you live, or the weather you’re used to, fire pits are great for all seasons. Pick out a fire pit design for your deck that will have all your family and friends gathering around the fire for a nighttime marshmallow roast. Ask your Illinois deck builder which design is most functional and aesthetically pleasing for your deck’s design.
Not only can built-in benches act as a deck railing, they also help increase the seating capacity for guests and family and friends. There are a number of different bench styles to begin with. You can also try different style by purchasing colorful outdoor cushions.
Perhaps you want these at the corners of your deck or maybe your prefer them running along the edges. Discuss the size and shape of the boxes. Will they hold flowers, or would you like to incorporate a mini-vegetable garden area to your deck? You can purchase seeds for container-appropriate vegetables, such as tomatoes, carrots, lettuce and herbs, just to name a few things. Be sure you purchase soil that is designed especially for container plants so that the soil has the nutrients your plants will need to thrive in the containers.
If you love entertaining and you have the room, why not add a small addition to your deck? Deck building doesn’t have to be complicated and stressful. Choose a simple design and have a qualified deck builder add a small deck a step up from your current deck to function as the outdoor dining space. Now you can move your table and chairs there, freeing up the space on the lower deck for dancing or maybe adding a hot tub.
