You can have your deck built to be so much more than just a basic rectangle outside of your home. A deck can, and should, provide you and your family with a comfortable, peaceful, and inviting space to relax and entertain. You should absolutely customize it to fit your needs, wants, and your lifestyle. Check out some of these clever deck construction ideas.
There are no set rules on where you have to put a deck. In most cases, people put their decks right behind their homes, but not all houses will allow for that, or even look good with that. Adding a corner deck can sometimes really complement the architecture of your home, especially if you’re able to put it near an entryway.
And to expand on the idea of putting your deck somewhere other than right behind your home, you can even consider putting a freestanding deck somewhere in your yard. People sometimes refer to this as a destination deck. Add it to your favorite spot in your yard, or even in the middle of your garden.
If your main purpose of having a deck is to entertain guests, then you should consider building a party deck. This basically means that you can work all of your favorite party ideas and plans into the design of your deck, including things like adequate seating, an outdoor kitchen, a fire pit, hammocks, and so much more.
If you have a small yard, don’t worry because there are many petite deck designs that will work perfectly for your space, even making your yard appear larger than it really is. Think of it as an extension of your yard.
