So you’ve made the decision to finally build the deck of your dreams. Now what? Starting out can be a little overwhelming, but our experts can help you every step of the way. Before you can do anything, you need to find your perfect deck design. Start off by looking at other decks, taking notes on what you like and what you don’t like. What’s your style? What is the style of your home and existing backyard structures? Take inspiration from what others have done, whether it’s decks you’ve seen in real life or pictures you come across online. Take pictures, print off images, or cut out clippings from magazines to create a vision board. Think of the mood you want to create and the function your deck will serve. Do you have a pool the deck will encircle? Or will you spend a lot of time out sunbathing on it? What purposes do you want your deck to serve? Keep these things in mind when coming up with your deck design.
What You’re Working With
Then, start figuring out the logistics of it. What are you working with? What is your budget? How big is your yard, and how much space do you want your deck to fill? Is your yard fairly level or does it slope? We can help design a deck that will work for any yard! If you want to start by sketching something out yourself, take a picture of the back of your house, print it out, put some tracing paper over it, and start sketching out what you’d like your deck to look like. Try a few different designs, and don’t forget railings, stairs, or a gazebo if that’s something you might want! Don’t worry if you’re not an artist; it’s just to help you visualize what you might want. But if that’s still too overwhelming, don’t worry! Our experts at Deome2 Builders will be happy to create a polished, customized design for you and your yard. We’re the professionals and we’re happy to help!
