Deck Designs For a Comfortable Outdoor Space

Extending your living space outdoors doesn’t just give you extra floor space; it also adds value to your home. Your deck is essentially the bridge between your indoors and outdoors, and it’s a versatile space that has many designs to choose from. Read on as Handyman Connection of Eden Prairie discusses deck designs that will create a comfortable outdoor space.

Corner Deck

This is a popular design for homeowners with contemporary homes since most of the time, there’s a “missing” corner on the layout of the home. It also boasts simple design since all you really need to do is cover the missing corner area with the deck. The result is a versatile space that you can use for almost anything, be it an extension of your dining space or a place to relax on the outdoors.

Layered Decks

Layered decks are popular for contemporary homes with smaller lot areas. Traditional homes that have a slight elevation from the outdoor area will also benefit from this deck design and will really increase the home’s value. Like the corner deck, it’s versatile design means you can use it for almost anything.

Destination Decks

This is a fairly new design that’s becoming very popular these days. It’s essentially a deck that’s detached from the house and located somewhere in the backyard. This is great for homes with a very restrictive architectural design that you really can’t work around. We recommend installing these deep in your garden area or surrounded by trees.

Party Deck

Love hosting parties in your home? Then consider installing a party deck. This is arguably the most “advanced” kind of deck design since it occupies a larger space and often includes a separate dining deck. The actual design is still versatile though and can fit both contemporary and traditional homes.
