For the majority of the year, our backyards become our very own retreat, right in the comfort of our own homes. Outdoor living is more than just desirable, it has become a lifestyle. If your backyard space is a blank slate, consider either expanding or adding on a deck and making it your own. There are a variety of different deck design options to choose from that will satisfy both style and function needs.
Design your outdoor deck space to create an inviting atmosphere everyone in your life will want to enjoy. Below are unique deck designs to transform your backyard oasis.
To protect from the sun, or other weather elements like rain, consider a shaded architectural structure on a portion of the deck. There are a variety of ways to lay out this structure; perhaps adjacent to the pool for a reprieve from the sun or covering an outdoor dining table to ensure comfortable dining.
Sunken seating within your outdoor deck can act as a design focal point in your outdoor space and create nice visual appeal for your backyard oasis. Sunken seating with a fire pit and built in seating around the perimeter can become a relaxing hangout area for the whole family.
Bi-level decking can help outline different functions for the deck space. For example, the top deck can be a seating area with a firepit or water feature, while the bottom level can be used for the dining area. If your outdoor deck space is limited, having different levels can make it feel more spacious because there are defined spaces for different uses.
Built in Tiki Bar
Take your outdoor oasis to the next level with a built-in tiki bar to make your outdoor space feel like a vacation all year-round! Use your tiki bar to entertain while the weather is nice and install a fire feature or heating to enjoy during those chillier nights.
Extend the back of your seating to a create a fence structure to give your outdoor seating space some privacy. An enclosed fence also makes the seating space cozier. Using wood panels with reclaimed wood can give it a farmhouse feel that’s on trend right now.
Especially if your backyard is positioned with a view, curved seating can maximize that spectacular view and create more seating nooks for entertaining. A round table can complement a curved deck even further.
