Get Creative with Your Deck
Add a sofa
Design your deck to be comfortable and stylish by adding sofas in the color of your choice. Use covers to protect them from the sun and rain.
Design a rounded deck
Choose something different by going with a round or oval deck design. It may take longer to build, but the results will be worth the wait.
Use transparent roofing
Protect yourself from the elements by adding transparent roofing. This is a great way to add cover while still allowing the light in.
Go for deck dining
Make use of your deck space by adding a dining table and chairs. Use your deck to entertain friends or enjoy family meals.
Add stairs
Get dimension and depth on your deck with stairs. Stairs also double up as extra seating for guests. Even three stairs can make an impact.
