Adding a deck to your home can increase its value and provide you and your family with a place to gather and entertain. There are many different types of deck styles, and asking a desk installation professional for advice about which factors to consider can help you feel more confident about the choice you make. 

1. Deck Design 

Choosing the proper deck design for your home can prevent aesthetic errors that make your home appear disproportionate when compared to the deck. There are several different types you can choose from, including: 

  • Wraparound 
  • Multi-level 
  • Detached 

Your installation professional can provide you with the benefits of each of these choices; for example, if you have a large family, a wraparound deck can accommodate each member during a backyard party or cookout, while a detached deck can help you build an oasis with plants and improve an area of your yard that might otherwise go unused. 

2. Visual Style 

Your deck’s visual style can impact its usage and affect your home’s resale value. Before you choose a deck style, ask your deck installation professional about which colors and styles best suit the rest of your home. Making the proper architectural choices can improve the overall enjoyment you might get out of your deck. 

3. Usage 

Whether you plan to add your deck to a pool or use it to entertain, the way you plan to use it can have an effect on the choices you make. Discuss your plans with the installer and ask which features can enhance your deck experience, such as the addition of natural foliage, water features and furniture. 

Working with a professional deck installer can help you make decisions about this addition to your home with greater confidence. From choosing the right style for your home to adding eye-catching features, making informed decisions can result in a home deck you can always be proud of.
