Bring the Indoors Outside with a Fabulous Deck


Fresh air, fragrant flowers, chirping birds, these are all things that draw you to the outdoors. If you have not built a fabulous deck yet, then this is the year that you should get this project completed. You will find that you will spend more time outside if you have a beautiful place to sit and enjoy everything that the outdoors has to offer.

Your new deck can be any size and the only limitation that you will have is the space in your yard. You can choose a small deck that can be expanded over time if necessary or you can start off by building the largest deck that you can fit in your yard.

Your local contractor can help you with the design of your deck and can offer you ideas as to what materials you should use and what you should include.

Here are 5 things that we recommend that you add when you build your fabulous deck:

  1. Add Lighting: Your deck is going to get a lot of use and while you may not think about it at first, you will be out there at night. Hanging lanterns, string lights, or lamps can add ambiance lighting at any time.
  2. Add Music: Listening to the birds chirping is wonderful, but you will also hear your neighbors talking and someone down the street mowing their lawn or cutting down a tree. To block out some of these more unpleasant sounds, we recommend that you install a surround sound system. You will be able to connect your iPod to the system and drown out the rest of the noise. This feature will also work well when you are entertaining.
  3. Add a Kitchen: No one ever wants to go inside to prepare a meal and you will never need to if you install a kitchen on your deck. It can be as simple as a grill where you can cook some burgers, hot dogs, and chicken, or you can get more elaborate. Some outdoor kitchens include an oven, refrigerator, dishwasher, sink, and multiple cabinets for storage.
  4. Add Color: Color brightens up any space and you can place fragrant flowers around your new deck in pots. You can also use hanging baskets or build a pergola and add climbing vines and flowers to it.
  5. Add a Focal Point: A focal point is just as necessary on a deck as it is inside a home. You can choose from a fireplace, fountain, pergola, fire pit, and more. Your goal is to choose something that you love and will want to sit near and look at for years in the future.

These are just a few ideas for your fabulous deck. There are many more options available and you can use your imagination as you are designing your dream space. We recommend that you take your time as you are designing your deck. This will be a space that you will be using as much as you use the interior of your home and you don’t want to design a space that you don’t enjoy.
