Planning Your Deck

Spring is right around the corner, which makes it the perfect time to create your outdoor living space. Decks are great spaces for outdoor entertainment or for simply relaxing. Thinking through some of the ways you will use your deck the most can help you a lot in the design process. Think about how many tables, chairs, grills, etc. you will want on the deck. Then plan a layout based off of that. This will ensure that your deck is the proper size that will fit your needs. Location is also key, make sure to consider angles of the sun and weather patterns when you're mapping it out. Which side of your house gets the most sun? Which is better protected from rain and snow? If you're using a deck primarily for cooking or eating, make sure it easily connects to your kitchen or dining room. The materials you choose is also important to think about. Warranties, long term maintenance and care, as well as price, color selection, and durability are all important aspects.
