With summer on almost here, it’s time to start planning for how you’ll enjoy the warm weather. And there’s no better way to greet the summer than with a new deck. Decks are the most popular demand for homeowners in the last two years and are only going to become more prevalent. Not only are these a great way to prepare your homes for relaxing afternoons and cookouts, but a top of the line deck will immediately increase the resale value of your house. Here are some of the hottest designs to revitalize your home’s exterior.
The overarching trends that we’re seeing the most of are modern and industrial style decks. Modern decks emphasize clean lines, basic shapes, and contemporary features for an exterior that feels sleek and stylish. This style also provides a great deal of flexibility, allowing for a wide range of configurations and layouts for any homeowner’s requirements.
An industrial deck is a great way to mix the traditional with the contemporary. Wooden materials, grid patterns, lean railings, and clean lines combine to create a design that feels fresh and classic.
Mixed materials are one of the hottest trends in design, and that extends to the outdoors. Blending composite decking, wood, and even metal fixtures creates a distinct, dynamic, and modern feeling for your deck.
Distressed hardwood isn’t just for interior design now – homeowners are increasingly using composite materials to mimic the look of a hardwood floor, turning your deck into an extension of the indoors and creating a cozy, rustic feeling for even the most modern deck.
Stone is also seeing a resurgence as homeowners are increasingly drawn to its sense of permanence and natural beauty. You can either use actual stone or imitate the appearance with a composite material to transform your exterior into a classic, natural experience.
Deck Color Options
Bold colors were the hottest trend for 2019, and that looks to continue into the 2020s. Homeowners are moving away from monochromatic browns and greys and spicing up their outdoor spaces with colors like reddish hues, earthy clay, and deep black. Mixing and matching earthy, natural colors is a great way to make your deck pop.
Distinct lighting fixtures is a great way to express yourself and build your home’s distinct style. Low voltage lighting can be used to complement modern angles for a calm, tranquil atmosphere. You can also selectively employ post caps, step lights, and sconce lighting to quickly and easily transform your outdoor space. Embedded lights are also increasingly used as a way to illuminate your deck while still feeling cohesive and sleek.
