deck design ideas

Are you planning to add a deck in 2016? Congratulations on finally pulling the trigger! A deck is a great investment that both you and potential home buyers will enjoy. If you are like most Maryland homeowners, you are probably planning to start construction early next spring to have the deck ready for the cookout season. It’s convenient, because now you have the whole winter to plan every detail of it. And to help you get started, our Maryland deck contractors have put together this list of resource to help you come up with an incredible design for your new deck.

Deck Ideas on

In case you haven’t heard about Houzz, it’s an online community of homeowners, contractors, designers and other remodeling industry professionals and enthusiasts. They share home improvement projects they have completed, including decks. Each project has pictures and you can even sort by how big the deck is, where it’s located in relation to the house, how much it costs and which special feature it has. You can do all of this without even being a member.

If you create your own account, which by the way is free, you can even save your favorite projects to look at them later. You can also ask the project creator specific questions, such as which materials were used or how certain features were built.

Deck Ideas on Pinterest

If you are planning any sort of remodeling project, Pinterest is your friend. Not only is it a great resource for finding interesting deck ideas, but it’s also a great tool for keeping your research organized. Pinterest allows you to create virtual boards where you can “pin” anything that interests you. For example, for your new deck project, you could create a board for “deck design ideas” and then a separate board for “deck landscaping” or “decking materials.” You can then share your idea board with your significant other or the rest of the family, so that they could also contribute.

Deck Ideas from BHG

Better Homes and Gardens is a magazine, but their website is also full of many useful articles on home improvement. Unlike the other two websites, is based almost entirely on slideshows. This can be either a good or a bad thing, depending on how you prefer to view information. The handy thing about Better Homes and Gardens is that they organize their slideshows/articles by themes, such as decks with curves, privacy solutions for your deck or small deck design ideas. So if you have a specific challenge you are trying to overcome, this site can serve as a great resource.

These three websites should give you plenty of inspiration for the design of your new deck. In fact, Pinterest may be the only site you need, as it contains deck photos from all over the web in a format that is easy to search and save. And if you prefer old-school ways, such as clipping magazine pages into a binder, be our guest! At North American Deck and Patio, we enjoy working with clients who have a clear vision of what they want in a deck, no matter which means (digital or paper) you use to communicate your vision.

At this point, you may not be ready to hire a contractor just yet, but when you get your ideas together, feel free to browse through our portfolio and give us a call with any questions!
