6 Deck Styles
There are many reasons to build a deck in your yard. Besides the added value to your home, a deck gives you plenty of extra living space. Nothing is better than stepping outside onto a beautiful deck to enjoy a good meal, relax or entertain friends and family.
When choosing the appropriate deck style for your home, assess your living and entertaining needs. Do you enjoy eating outdoors? Do you throw parties often? Do you prefer to relax in the sun or under the shade? How many people live in your home? Will you have a grill or hot tub on the deck? Along with your personal needs, the size of your home and lot may also dictate the kind of deck you can install. A yard with an unusual shape or slope may call for a different style deck than a yard with a flat terrain. Start with these six options to find the deck that works best for your home.
