Today we will go over five things that you should keep in mind regarding custom decks. Any home improvement project that you invest in should be customized and personalized. Homeowners can travel all around the world, but there shouldn’t be any place like home. Your home should serve as a haven where you can unwind and seek solace. If this isn’t the case, it’s time to invest in your home to be a place of ultimate peace and entertainment if you like being a host or hostess. If the idea of custom decks intrigues you, here are five rules of thumb.
Custom Decks, Like Any in Life, Needs a Purpose
If you want us to install a custom deck, the first thing that you should figure out is the deck’s purpose. Are you going to use your deck to host BBQ parties? If so, you’ll need tons of space. Will you use your deck for tanning? If so, you’ll need furniture that decks up less space so that you’ll have more open space. Figure out how you’d like your deck to function before finalizing the design to fulfill your requirements.
Figure Out the Ideal Deck Size
As you can see, your deck’s purpose and its size go hand in hand. You will have to tell one of our contractors if you’d like a small or large deck or a size in between. Your contractor can help assess if whatever you envisioned is realistic.
Custom Decks Should Complement Your Home
You want your deck to complement and blend in with your home versus appearing extraneous. Before finalizing materials and sizes, ask yourself if the overall outlook makes sense. In the case of deck restoration, you’ll want to pick complementary paint. It doesn’t have to be a precise match, but you don’t want it to look odd.
If you live in a townhome community, you’ll most likely want privacy. A lot of people think about privacy regarding fences, but barely when it comes to decks. A roof on your deck can add some privacy. A deck coupled with a fence can also add extra privacy.
Deck Lighting Can Light Up Your Life
When you enhance your deck with lighting, you make your home a safer place. Plus, you can look forward to spring and summer gatherings during the night. With it heating up in Maryland, you may opt for an after-hours hangout versus hosting a BBQ when the sun is at its peak. On top of all of this, deck lighting shows off the fantastic features of custom decks.
