Wooden Deck Designs

Wooden decks add appeal to any home. More so if you happen to have a facade that is plain, constructing a deck can give your home an up-to-date look. Besides adding extra valuable outdoor living space, a deck completely transforms the way you enjoy your home. The architecture of your home should be taken into account to decide the design of the deck. Actually the deck should look a part of the overall structure and compliment your home. There are some typical designs for wooden decks based on the space dimensions and landscaping around your house. It is this that allows for ground level decks, elevated decks and even multilevel decks.

A ground floor deck does not require railings. But you could go in for awnings or a porch to create shaded places. You may include a ramp for wheelchair access. An elevated deck will require railings and there are many designs to choose from, both elaborate and simple. This kind of deck could also have stairs leading down. The multilevel deck is a series of decks leading down to open space from the main, larger, elevated deck. This is an expensive set up and is visually quite stunning. It usually requires some expertise and is best handled by professionals.

A simple "stand alone" deck is quite good for sunbathing. Deck designs can incorporate gazebos or pergolas but such decisions have to be taken when planning the foundation of concrete since these would require supports or posts for the added weight. Deck designs include ideas on everything from privacy to outdoors-dining-on- decks to hot tubs and pool decks. A quality deck design book should l give you the knowledge and confidence to choose a distinctive deck design. The internet is perhaps the best resource for all kinds of information on decking designs.
