Are You Building an Outdoor Deck?
July 23, 2014
There’s no time like the present to beautify your yard. This doesn’t mean you only have to work on manicuring your lawn, planting flowers, and trimming your bushes — you could also significantly up the aesthetics of your home by looking into home fences, outdoor decks and patios, and wooden gazebos.
Out of these three options, outdoor wood decks are probably your best bet. Not only do they raise the resale value of your home, but you will be giving your home a more elegant appearance.
Here are some outdoor decks designs that you may want to consider.
- Rounded. Why not stray a bit from the norm and shop around for a rounded deck that fits onto the back of your house? Instead of conforming to the typical boxy-type wooden enclosure, if you go with a circular deck, your home could become a reflection of classic, olden times, when multiple decks were build in a half circle outside of several windows.
- Enclosed. The whole idea of having a deck is to breathe in the open air, and enjoy the breeze, but you could also do yourself a favor by fitting the open sides with mesh, and placing a type of roofing overhead. This will allow you to enjoy the weather without being drenched by the rain, and also keep the cold air out if you want to sit on the deck during the winter.
- Wrap-Around. This is not one of the most popular outdoor decks designs you will come across, but it may be more unique. The idea of wrapping a deck around your entire house may sound odd to you, but to be able to step out onto the deck from any room on your main floor would be convenient, and classy. It would be no surprise if your property value skyrocketed as a result, either.
So, turn your house into something for people to gawk at. An outdoor deck could be just the thing to place your home among the best in the neighborhood. See this link for more references.
