Backyard Deck Design Ideas

Adding a deck to your home is the easiest, most affordable way to increase your living space. And when it comes to deck design, the sky is the limit. You can use online sites to create virtual decks and you can get design ideas from work that others have already done. Get inspired by these 9 smart deck ideas for a well-designed space built just for you.

Design and nature work together to counteract the heat. A pergola with a pull-down screen stands guard against the sun. The redwood pavement undulates around a cool pool and is cut to include tree shade. Although local regulations rarely regulate deck lighting, it is a good idea to put sconces around doors. And small recessed lights on stair climbers to avoid late-night accidents. Other ambient light options include lanterns. Spotlights mounted in nearby trees or on a pergola, and solar-powered deck lights that are easy to install as they don’t require wiring.

Deck Railing

For safety reasons, most building codes require that the railings for decks built more than 30 inches. Above the ground be at least 36 inches high with no gaps for a 4-inch ball to pass between balusters or under the handrail. Some local regulations also include railings with horizontal elements that children can climb like a ladder. Railings can be made from a variety of materials to suit any style or circumstance. Popular options other than wood include taut horizontal or vertical steel cables, metal sheets or grids, piping, resin posts and balusters, and evenly tempered sheets of glass.

Overhead structures can provide shade from the baking sun, and airy walls provide privacy from neighbors that are too close. Open mesh fences help create private space while allowing light and breeze through. If at some point the homeowner wants something less transparent, climbing plants can be added. If you encourage vines to grow on top of the pergola, the structure could transform from a structure that not only creates an intimate sense of containment. But also provides protection from light summer showers.
