Deck Designs That Create a Comfortable Outdoor Living Space

Your home’s deck area is an extension of your living space, so it’s appearance should reflect that. It’s far from just a rectangular space, too, as it can add a significant amount of value to your home. Handyman Connection of San Mateo discusses deck designs that create a comfortable outdoor living space.

Outdoor Living Space

The Party Deck

Arguably the most popular deck design, the party deck is what you should go for if entertaining your guests in your backyard is your goal. This deck design is usually single or double-tiered, and is often as long as the house. Space is the key here, and it should be large enough to fit a barbecue and seating area for your guests.

Wood-Concrete Deck

The mixed-material deck is a whimsical take on the classic deck design, and as the name suggests, combines two or more deck materials – the most popular being wood and concrete. You can either go with a wooden deck board with concrete stairs, borders, or even a built-in bench seat. This design is ideal for contemporary and ultra-modern homes.

Petite Deck Space

Petite decks are ideal for homes with smaller backyards, and they can actually make your landscape look larger than usual. This deck is usually built separate from the home and acts much like a patio or porch than a deck.

Corner Deck

The dining deck is a classic deck design that’s engineered for comfort and relaxation. This design is ideal for oddly-shaped traditional and contemporary homes that have a “missing” floor space; the corner deck itself fills out this space and effectively completes it.
