This past year showed us that spending time at home isn’t actually all that bad if you make your home into an oasis. This is especially true of your backyard, and if you have a deck, you already have the perfect place for some quality outdoor living. Check out these great design ideas to spruce up that space in preparation for a spring and summer of relaxation.
Shade And Cover
Adding a cover of some sort to your open deck is a great way to add ambiance and make it more useful. A beautiful pergola is an aesthetically pleasing addition. An awning, on the other hand, is a great way to improve the comfort of the space on super hot summer days. Even something as simple as an umbrella over the table can improve the space.
Even the most beautiful designed decks won’t get used if they’re not comfortable. Make sure that you’re choosing furniture you’d like to spend time sitting on, including pillows, cushions, and throw blankets for chilly evenings. Don’t forget the lights, too, since having light will make it both easier and safer to use your deck at night. Strings of lights are a beautiful and festive way to decorate, regardless of the season.
Do you want to pretend your home deck is a posh outdoor seating area at a trendy restaurant when you have friends over? You can! Add a built-in bar to your outdoor kitchen so that you can mix up libations for your guests in style. Alternatively, if your entertaining leans more towards watching sports, you could include a sheltered area for a large TV that is visible from the deck. If it’s visible from comfortable seating around a fire pit, you won’t want to be anywhere else come football season in the fall.
Adding color to your deck is a great way to liven it up, and there are countless ways you can do it. Adding green with living ornamentation – plants in pots or planters – is a great choice. Alternatively, go bright with super colorful throw pillows and seat cushions.
Screening For Privacy
Adding screening to your outdoor living space is one of the best ways to improve the privacy of the space. It can also help decrease distractions, such as noise. Lattice, with or without climbing plants, and wood slat are both very popular options.
