How to Prepare Your Deck for Outdoor Activities

Decks are outdoor living spaces that are designed and built for a wide variety of activities. But before you invite your friends and neighbors for a weekend barbecue, is your deck prepared for the occasion? If you want to use your deck for outdoor entertainment this spring, Handyman Connection of Orange County shares some ideas to help you prepare.

Invest in Attractive Furniture

Decks and patios won’t be complete without proper outdoor furniture. This can range from textured throw pillows to matching sofas and lounge chairs. They don’t have to stand out in the space but they can still complement the more colorful side of your home’s exterior design.

Create a Simple Leisure Space

A well-prepared deck will do more than just provide space for your guests to socialize. It must also have a leisure space that can accommodate a few laidback guests who want to relax and have extended conversations. This will typically consist of some chairs, stools, and a couch arranged around a coffee table.

Consider Covering Your Deck

Providing shade for your deck is a must, especially during the upcoming summer months. After all, you don’t want your guests to feel uncomfortable while they hang out during daytime. Awnings, pergolas, attached overhead coverings, roof extensions and arbors are some of the most popular types of deck coverings. Whatever type of covering you choose, it should fit with the overall aesthetics of your deck while adding practical utility to the outdoor space.

Get Some Extra Stools and Stackable Chairs

Stools are great around your patio and deck as they can be used as either extra seating space or table space depending on the occasion. If you’re short on space, consider stackable chairs that can be stored easily when you don’t have any guests around. They’re available in different styles and you can even add cushions, pillows and other accessories!
