Top Trends This Year For Custom Decks That Create Inviting Outdoor Living Spaces

Custom Deck

Ask any reputable remodeling contractor who works with outdoor living spaces, and they'll tell you that decks are still one of the best ways to improve your home. In recent years, as more families have spent more quality time at home, outdoor living areas have become increasingly popular. With this surge in demand has come an expansion in the ways in which homeowners add custom details to make their deck feel like an extension of their home. Gone are the days of basic decks; we're in the era of going from ordinary to extraordinary.

How To Customize Your Deck For Maximum Enjoyment

If you're moving towards adding a deck to your home, think about some ways you can really make yours work for your personal needs. Custom decks are an ideal way to improve your home, add value, and create a place that works well for you, your family, and your guests. Consider some of these current trends for custom outdoor living areas:

LED Lighting - It's a good rule of thumb for any area of your home - you can't go wrong with more lighting. You never have to use all the lights if you don't want to, but it's better to have too much than not enough. Lighting helps illuminate walkways to prevent accidents and help create the right mood, and LED is green and cost-effective, making it the ideal solution.

Low Maintenance Materials - Wood decks were great when there weren't other options. Unfortunately, even with regular care (and there was the need for a lot of it), wood decks would succumb to the elements and render decks practically useless. Modern materials are long-lasting, easy to clean, and require little maintenance throughout the years.

Add More Railings - Railings help keep conditions safe and make your deck more user-friendly. However, current trends see more creative looks and designs, including options for details like built-in cup holders.
