I prefer traditional.
While both have their appeal, I'd have to go with traditional. Its more like a home in my opinion.
Most definitely the traditional!
I lean towards the modern, sleek lines.

I think it depends more on the house than personal taste, and I prefer traditional
I agree with Dee. The decking should be appropriate to the house. (Although i would posit that there is a better chance of modern decking looking good on a traditional house than traditional decking looking good on a modern house.)
Wood...with a view
traditional one and @KMS Woodworks view wood with a view
I prefer the modern one in this example but I am not against traditional style.
Great feedback! Both are beautiful, it is hard to pick!
It is not fair to have to compare such different style houses. One is a show case while the other is a home. Neither deck would look great if they were switched around. I prefer a home.
I, myself, am more of a traditional homeowner with modern convenience such as artificial turf. It really depends on the style of the homeowner and also the home's architecture which deck and porch is going to be most beneficial for the structure. For example, the colonial wooden fence will not work with a modern home, but using ornamental iron could!
Traditional for me! Difficult to compare these totally different styles of home though.
It depends on the house getting "decked," but my first choice is traditional if it works with the style of the home.
