Under deck dry inexpensive way so I can use space walkout basement
Debbie Harris on Jun 22, 2014We put an awning over our deck so beneath it stays dry. Or you could put up canopy under the deck.Helpful Reply
Darla on Jun 24, 2014You want the rain to drain off the deck - you could use plastic Rubbermaid-style bins underneath, or deck boxes if there's room. If your deck is on the second story, maybe you could put a patio umbrella under it.Helpful Reply

Rae on Jun 05, 2017Darla I too have a walk out basement with an area under our deck above. I have wood furniture there with a throw rug under the grouping of furniture I put down there every summer. It is not a high dollar rug and the furniture has been painted with a high gloss outdoor enamel in white. My cushions are floral in bright colors to give the white a bit of a pop of color. I take this furniture in every fall and store it away from our harsh winters. I would love to have a throw on my swing but don't want to mess with a soggy piece. Yes during a good storm you cannot sit there but it is a pleasant place out of the sun on other days and my furniture has held up quite well. Oh yes lots of shade loving posies also.Helpful Reply
