deck materialsAccording to the 2017 Residential Landscape Architecture Trends Survey, the top three most popular outdoor structures this year are expected to be: pergolas, decks, and fencing. In the last post, we discussed some popular new deck design ideas. However, it’s important to have a good understanding of the multitude of design and personalization options you truly have when it comes to rebuilding or remodeling your deck. Here’s part two of our homeowner’s guide to provide you with some more popular new deck designs to consider.

Glass Railing
If your deck is at a higher altitude, or you’re just going for a high end look, consider foregoing the traditional wooden railings for glass. There’s simply no need to sacrifice style for efficiency, and if you’re hesitating to put a solid railing or wall around your deck because you don’t want to block the gorgeous view, this could very well be the solution for you. When deciding on a material for your see-through deck railing, make sure to consider both durability and ease of maintenance. A professional outdoor home improvement company can help you determine the best types of deck materials based on what’s logical and desired.

Wrap-Around Deck
Finally, this deck design serves as a multifunctional space that can provide infinite entertainment and aesthetic appeal. However, they unfortunately aren’t suitable for all homes and come with a number of considerations and challenges.

“With wraparound decks come special challenges. One of the first things you’ll need to do before you begin framing is to determine the decking pattern. Consider the most unifying patterns and the patterns that work best with the existing lines of the house. A well-designed wraparound could offer one spot for barbecuing, another for sunning and yet another for privacy — all with the turn of a corner,” says HGTV.

Ultimately, being aware of these new deck design ideas can help give you clarity regarding the visions and goals you have in mind for your deck, as well as how to make them come to life before your eyes. Of course, it’s always best to consult a home improvement company that specializes in outdoor elements to assist you with the design, planning, collection of deck materials, and full construction of your new deck.
