Your deck is the best place you can be to bask in the sun, relax reading your latest magazine, while taking your cold drink, or doing your morning barbeque breakfast.
A deck is your home’s extension to improve your outdoor area for your pleasure each time the weather is favorable to sit outside. Be it lounging, hanging out, playing with kids or entertaining, a beautifully designed deck can be your favorite place in your home. To ensure that you have good deck design there are some considerations that need to be understood for proper planning and deck design.
The main thing is knowing where you want to place your deck. A deck can be said to be properly placed if it is not obstructing, is not too visible on the backyard, blends with the environment of your back house. In case your view is good you can enjoy the view and place the deck where you will even more clear view. In case you don’t have the proper view, you could locate your deck near the garden tree. Getting some sun is important so someone can choose to have their deck where they will enjoy the sun. Are you bothered by the privacy of your neighbors? If don’t have much space you can use shrubbery, fences or walls to sort your deck project.
Do you want your deck connected to your home or you to want it near your living room which may be a problem as your family members are watching TV or talking, further your carpets would be damaged with the movement. You will easily move food and dishes from the deck if your position your deck next to the kitchen. People will be enticed to the kitchen by the sliding doors. Would you consider the possibility of linking two doors of two rooms to the deck? This will see to it that from the two doors there is less movement from the house to the deck and hence the carpets will not be damaged easily.
In case you want a deck’s destination it does not have to connect to the house, rather it can be all on its own. If your backyard goes to the woods, placing your deck nears some trees would be sensible. You can link your deck with the waters if your property extends near a lake or pond. A roof deck is one where you can have it over the garage or flat roof.
A large deck would host many guests, but for a small property this is not the case. The deck size should dictate the family members, so does a property size and the size of the home.
