The Functional Side of your Deck
November 28, 2017
Do you want to host summer barbecues? Are you tired of just sitting inside all summer? It’s time to upgrade your deck to become more functional and here is how to do it!
Featuring a grilling station or dining area on your deck helps your outdoor space to be more inviting and purposeful. Host dinner parties or simply grill hamburgers and hot dogs for your summer guests. Add cabinets or counter-tops so you can prep for meals outside as well.
There are plenty of deck additions that can make your space perfect for the kids. Buy or build a playhouse on the deck’s surface or set up an art station with easels so the little ones can show their creative side outdoors.
You can never have enough space to relax and get comfortable. Install a hammock or set up a cozy couch to curl up on with a good book, or consider a fire-pit or hot tub for year-round relaxation. Screen-in an area of your deck for a more private place to relax with your loved ones.
Plants don’t have to be confined to the garden. Flowers are pretty, but what about plants that serve a greater purpose? Your deck is the perfect place to grow small vegetables and herbs that you can later add to meals for a fresher taste.
Save on space and promote an open and inviting layout by installing built-in seating into your deck. Save on cooling costs during the summer by doing the things you normally do inside, outside. Save your healthy grass by building a sandbox or toy box for the kids into your deck.
