Deck Curves

While curves are a little harder to plan and require a very specific landscape, they are more aesthetically pleasing than straight lines. They can also work with the layout of your house to create something truly interesting. It’s not often that you see curved deck designs, so this immediately makes your deck stand out. Furniture can also be arranged to work with the curve, adding to the already decadent feel of the design.


This simple aspect can add so much to your deck. A pergola can make a plain deck transform into something truly amazing, and it’s all thanks to its sleek, elegant design. You can experiment with plant growth along the rafters, or leave them as-is. Either way, pergolas are the perfect way to combine deck design with outdoor landscaping. Use pergolas to continue to diversify your deck!

Build Around Trees

Are you afraid to tear down a favorite tree to make way for your custom deck? Consider asking your deck builders if it’s possible to work around the tree. In some cases, this can add a fantastic and unique centerpiece to your deck. When the landscape allows for such an incredible aspect, you should absolutely take advantage of it! As your custom deck builder whether or not this is a viable option for you.


Staircases can be used to diversify the silhouette of your deck design. When utilized correctly, they can create winding, intricate pathways that really ramp up the interesting factor of your deck. Yet, they don’t have to be too complicated in order to be interesting. A simple staircase design will suffice, and working with your custom deck builder can help you to arrive upon the perfect design.
