Decks are great additions to any home, as they provide more usable space and enhance the property’s appearance. However, we find that while many people have no trouble dreaming about having a beautiful deck, they sometimes struggle to take what they envision and make it a reality once their new deck is built. Today, we’ll go over a few basic ideas to help with decorating new decks.
- Add Visual Interest with Texture and Color- Just as you would when designing an indoor space, you can make your deck look more dynamic and beautiful by simply using color and textures. Choose whatever reflects your personal style most, whether that’s white, black, and neutral décor or something brighter, like red cushions for your outdoor seating. In addition, integrating different textures with blankets and furniture can make decks look layered rather flat and boring.
- Use Plants to Liven Up the Space- You might as well lean into the natural, outdoor feel when decorating your deck, and using plants is one of the best ways to do that. Real plants and flowers will breathe life into your space, but if you don’t trust yourself to keep them alive, there are plenty of realistic-looking faux plants you can find around town or online.
- Incorporate Unique Lighting- String lights, lanterns, or other outdoor lighting options will not only bring ambience to new decks at nighttime, but they will also provide any deck with more character during the day.
