7 Ways to Revamp Your Deck

by Bob Ryan on Jul 18, 2018

A deck plays an important role in a home’s versatility. But, sometimes a deck can seem bland in comparison to the rest of a home. Luckily, there are a variety of things you can do to revitalize your deck. So, here are seven of the best ways you can revamp your deck!

1. Utilize Furniture & Decorations

Sometimes you don’t need a deck builder to revamp your deck. If you’re already in love with the structure of your deck, but want to give the design a facelift, simply use furniture and decorations to do it. 

Feel free to add anything you feel like your deck needs, such as a table, chairs, pillows, and blankets. Browsing websites like Pinterest and HGTV can also give you great design inspiration. 

2. Extend It

If you have a large backyard and a small to medium sized deck, you might want to consider extending your deck. After all, a larger deck allows you to really enjoy your deck. You can add a variety of customizations and decorations to your deck. With a large deck, you could even host a large get-together.

3. Add an Extra Level or Two 

Adding an extra level or two is also a great option for people who have a large backyard. Having a multilevel deck adds an elegant appeal to your backyard. But, it should be noted that building another level or two shouldn’t be a DIY project. So, contact your local deck builder if you’re interested in turning your standard deck into a multilevel deck.

4. Add Some Shade

If you have a decent sized deck completely exposed in the sun. Then, you should consider adding some shade. You could do this by simply adding umbrellas to your deck, or even hire a contractor to build a pergola on your deck.

5. Utilize Greenery

Custom outdoor living isn’t only about building extravagant decks, patios, and other structures. Sometimes, adding a touch of greenery can turn a simply outdoor living space into a safe haven. If your deck is looking a little bit bland, consider planting a variety of plants, flowers, and possibly fruit and vegetables on or around your deck.

6. Bring Your Kitchen Outside

Let’s face it: there’s no better place to host a barbecue than outside. But, having to run back and forth from your deck to the kitchen to cook and grab food can put a dampen on your party. That’s why you should consider building an outdoor kitchen on your deck. Your outdoor kitchen can include everything from a standard grill, to countertops, and even cabinets.

7. Install a Firepit 

If you really want to enjoy nighttime outside with friends and family, consider installing a firepit on your deck. With a firepit you can do everything from hosting a bonfire to roasting marshmallows or even simply seeking warmth next to the fire on a chilly night.
