the point of having a deck if it’s just an empty space? To enjoy
your deck to the fullest you'll want to decorate it with various items
from things that are simply for looks to practical items. That's where
deck decor comes in.
Sure you could just put a few lawn chairs and a table on your deck,
but that’s boring. Have fun and jazz up your deck with deck
decor. The selection of items to choose from is enormous. Here are
a few ideas: fountains, wind chimes, planter boxes, storage units,
umbrellas for shade, screening to keep the bugs out, lighting, birdfeeders,
awnings, sculptures, hammocks, hooks for hanging plants, and that’s
just the beginning. Take it up a notch with grander elements like
a grill, hot tub, or television.
Think of your deck as an extension of your home. The big difference
however in decorating your deck versus decorating a room in your home
is that the items on the deck may get rained or snowed on so keep
that in mind when decorating. Don't put anything out there that can't
withstand wind, rain, snow and other elements. And if you do, make
sure that it is protected or that is easy to store if you see a storm
rolling in. One of the easiest ways to deal with these storage issues
is with a storage container. Storage containers come in various color
styles and shapes. Choose from vinyl, Rubbermaid, or wood. Storage
containers are made to look discreet and blend in with their surroundings.
It helps you keep your items organized and keeps your deck spotless.
Another fun idea: mount a television and enjoy the best thing about
the indoors, outdoors. Invite the fellas over and kick back with some
beers while watching a baseball game. Just remember to have your TV
protected which means it should be under some sort of covering.
Add a splash of color to your deck by adding cushions to deck furniture.
Use colors and patterns that compliment the style of your home. If
you live in a modern home try bold colors. For a country home floral
patterns are beautiful. A traditional brick house will look lovely
with classic colors like white, black and beige. Make it a place that
you want to spend time in. Think of it in the same way as you do about
decorating the inside of your house. In some ways it's even more important
since not everyone will come inside your house but neighbors and other
passersby will see the outside of your house. Make a good impression
and make your house stand out on the block.
Don't let a good deck go to waste by leaving it bare. Upgrade your
home and transform your deck with deck décor.
