Whether your existing deck needs replaced or you’re considering having a new deck built on your home, you have plenty of design options to consider. A few deck design trends are growing in popularity that you may want to consider incorporating into your new deck this year.
Design Trend: Ambient Light
Adding ambient lighting to a deck design is another trend heading into 2020. Rather than stark lighting, homeowners are opting for subtle ambient light to line their deck. Lighting that outlines the edges of the deck is a great option because it provides enough light but not too much that it overwhelms you and your guests. In addition to light surrounding the deck, adding light to any stairs or built-in seating is a great way to improve your deck.
Design Trend: Industrial
Industrial design is popular, and you can find it in homes, restaurants, stores, offices, and other commercial spaces. The mixing of rustic wood and metal is both timeless and trendy. This design style has also made its mark on the decking industry, becoming one of the most popular decking trends as we head into 2020. Industrial touches can be added to your deck by incorporating rustic colored wood (or composite) with iron railings and trim. The industrial metal paired with natural wood is one trend we love and can get behind.
Design Trend: Craftsman Style
Unique craftsman touches are increasing in popularity. Instead of a basic deck, consider adding some unique touches to your design. If your deck has multiple sections, consider framing in each area with unique framing boards such as thinner or thicker boards. Framing adds a level of style and design to your deck while also making it more functional. You can also fit this trend by upgrading your railings to give them a craftsman-style look or adding unique and vibrant fixtures.
