Deck Design Ideas

After determining the style, size, purpose, and material type for your deck, there are still several key design features that can be added to truly create a unique outdoor living space for your home.

The Importance of Detail

At EXOVATIONS®, we believe that it is the details that make a living space unique. With that in mind, there are several facets of deck design that really lend themselves to unique features and accents. Based on our experience, here are the three main areas in which an outdoor living area can be truly made your own:

Deck Railing

While often overlooked, deck railing is a great design element that can add a great deal of personal flair and visual interest to a deck. From wood to glass, the material choice can completely change the look of a deck from traditional to contemporary. Wooden railing lends itself to intricate design work and can be stained a variety of colors depending on personal taste. More contemporary railing materials such as glass and acrylic do wonders for opening up the view and provide a very modern and stylish atmosphere.

Deck Stairs

Perhaps even more overlooked than deck railing, the design options for stairs are nearly as vast. From a design standpoint, both the dimensions and building materials are the two most important elements in creating a unique style for your project. Wide stairs can create an impressive focal point for your deck and provide a point of interest. Materials such as wood and stain create a solid, traditional feeling design while glass and metal work to create a modern, clean feel.
