3 POPULAR IDEAS WHEN BUILDING A NEW DECK

Relax And Enjoy

A new deck gives you the opportunity to create a special outdoor space that no one will want to leave. How many times have you been on a deck, looking at a picture perfect view with a coffee or glass of wine in your hand? Don’t you feel you just want to stay there forever? Work with a Pasadena decking expert to decide not only on the look you want to achieve, but how you will use your new deck.

BUILD IN FURNITURE

Building in furniture will maximize seating, keep your deck uncluttered and can double as storage space. Benches around the edge of your deck add lots of extra seating for when you are entertaining and don’t have to be stored anywhere once the guests have left. Built in storage underneath will provide a place to keep cushions clean and dry.

BUILD IN SHADE

Providing shade over your deck will create a comfortable outdoor room where you are protected from the elements. Children’s sensitive skin will be more protected from the hot Pasadena sun and meals can be enjoyed outside on a regular basis. You can choose a retractable awning, sail shades or a pergola style. Your decking will thank you as will your outdoor furniture, which will last longer and resist fading.

BUILD IN HEATING

If you decide on a more solid roofing option, consider building in heating. Pasadena enjoys such a blissful climate that your deck can be used year round, but the evenings can be chilly. Think how much more often you would sit outside if heaters could be turned on at the flick of a switch? Heaters can be set into the roof of your deck so everyone feels the warmth underneath. Your deck remain uncluttered by stand alone gas heaters. Discuss this possibility with your Pasadena decking contractor when you are planning your deck design.
