Outdoor decks can elevate your home by adding a unique aesthetic piece that can be used for lounging, entertainment, or simply enjoying fresh air. The question from here becomes what type of deck design is the right one for your home. Here are the pros and cons of 3 popular outdoor deck designs.
- Attached Deck: Attached decks are a standard type of deck. They allow for extra outdoor space and can be a great conduit for furniture, cooking equipment, and anything else you may desire. One drawback may be that they are simple and do not add as much style or flair as a more complex deck. However, with this lack of complexity comes a lower price-point.
- Pool Deck: Concrete or similar materials can get very hot during the summer, whether on the bare feet of swimmers or reflecting heat off the ground. A pool deck remedies this by creating a naturally cooler space that can accommodate those who want to lounge by the pool. Pool decks can add a lot of visual interest to your pool, as well as create a natural place to spend time. The cons of pool decks include that they can get expensive as they get more complex or more visually stunning.
- Multi-Tier Deck: If the goal is to create a gorgeous area to wander around to show off your property, then a multi-tier deck is the one for you. Multi-tier decks are decks that extend and stretch to accommodate multiple decks at various elevations. They create a lot of walkable, sittable, and aesthetic space on your property, but they do come at a cost. The complexity will drive up the price-point, especially as the deck grows and becomes more customized.
