Deck, Anyone?

You can transform your outdoor space and add to the value and visual appeal of your entire home with the right backyard deck. The options for design, style and scope for your deck project are near limitless, so it can help to get some inspiration and ideas right from the start.

Composite or wood construction?  Large and complex or small and simple?  Regardless what you ultimately decide, an important point to keep in mind for your backyard deck is that it’s a connective space as it bridges the gap between indoor and outdoor. For this reason, you may want to actually cover a portion of your deck—the portion adjacent to the house. Additionally, you may want to consider including landscaping around the perimeter of the deck. These two touches can subtly remind guests of the connection between the home and the backyard as well as position the deck as a relaxed and welcoming space between them. circular-deck-resized-600

Also, consider the contours of your backyard and work with them. If your backyard slopes down, a two or multi-tiered deck may be a tremendous and effective way to work with the landscape. Try to go with the flow of the yard.

For smaller spaces, contemplate a lower profile, one-tier deck, or one with just a few steps leading to the top platform. This will help take advantage of the limited amount of space, but still make for an beautiful, inviting and relaxed transition from indoors to outdoors.

So, whether you are building a complex multi-tiered deck or a humble yet beautiful single step gathering place, you may want to consider adding a focal point for your backyard deck such as a fireplace, fire pit, dining or seating area. After all, it’s going to be a gathering place for friends and family.

Inspiration can come from anywhere. Below are some of my very favorite deck ideas. Some are rather complex show stoppers. Others are just beautiful in their simplicity.  How can you not be inspired by some of these amazing creations?
