A good deck isn’t just a place to put your grill or lounge chair; it can literally expand your living space, providing you with a new outdoor room for relaxing, dining, entertaining, and appreciating nature. However, if you’re considering adding or replacing a deck, the possibilities can be overwhelming. There are so many options these days with longer-lasting materials, innovative railing styles, and other elements to personalize your deck.
Different Types of Decks:
- Attached deck– Similar to a porch, this type of deck is anchored to the structure of the home, with access from a doorway. Often the deck will be used to create a walkway from one door to another, filling the negative space of an L or U shaped home.
- Detached deck – Located away from the structure of your home to create a new “room” within your yard or garden, this style of deck could host a seating area with a fire pit, a pair of Adirondack chairs, or even a yoga space. This style can also be connected to your home via a walkway.
- Pool deck – As its name implies, this deck surrounds a pool and needs to be made from a material that won’t get too hot, is easy on bare feet, and won’t get slippery when wet.
