Enjoying the Outdoors at Home with These Deck Ideas

Last updated 5 years ago

Your home’s patio can be considered another “room” that allows you to enjoy the beautiful San Luis Obispo weather from the comfort of your own yard. Everyone’s home is different, but there are several ways to make the most of your living space with a custom touch and polish, or even a professional deck refinish if your existing one is looking faded or damaged. Check out these ideas for inspiration:

Building a Budget Deck
Cost-conscious homeowners can maintain a simple deck without much cost or maintenance expenses. A standard deck on a flat surface can last for years under normal foot traffic and inclement weather, and they can be instantly brought back to life with a deep refinish. Either a short fence or some shrubbery can bring the yard together and create a more private space without major expense.

Utilizing a Fixed Focal Point
You can also build the deck around a fixed feature or focal point such as a hot tub, fire pit, barbeque station, or even an outdoor bar. The possibilities are endless, and with proper maintenance you’ll have a perfect center stage for any holidays or impromptu get-togethers.

Special Considerations
If you have a relatively small yard or live on an incline, there are still several ways to maximize your living space in a chic and elegant way. You can build out your deck into the slope and create a private area with a low retaining wall. For smaller areas, you can consider more unique design options such as a two-step deck or a floating island the make the most out of limited space.
