Having a new deck built for your home is exciting. It offers a lot of possibility. Think about how often you’ll use the space and what types of parties, events, and get-togethers you’ll have there. Knowing that you have a dedicated space outdoors to do just that is a wonderful feeling.
Be Clear About What You Want So You Can Tell the Builders
Now that you know who you’ll have building your deck, it’s time to consider the range of options made available to you as a homeowner. What style of deck do you prefer? Are you hoping for something low maintenance?
Is a Composite Deck Right for You?
Composite decks offer the look of real wood with less upkeep. You won’t spend a lot of time caring for the deck and it still looks great despite it. It doesn’t require painting or varnishing, either, which saves time and money.
Traditional Wood Decks Can Be Stained or Painted
If you prefer something stained or painted, you’ll want to go with traditional wood decks. You’re then able to decide how you want it to look. If you want the railing to be a different color than the flooring, it’s an option.
The wide array of paint colors, stains, and finishes on the market make it so you can match your deck to your home seamlessly. When choosing one to use, apply it to a small area of your deck to make sure that you like how it looks. This prevents you from making a mistake that costs you time and money.
Think About Your Home’s Interior Colors
Some other things to consider is your home’s interior colors. Consider your deck an extension of your house. How can you carry out the color scheme indoors outside?
What materials were used to build your deck? How can you alter their appearance for the long-term? What types of materials are weather-proof?
Also, take into consideration that some colors don’t wear as well as others. If you don’t want to get stuck staining, finishing or painting the deck again in a year or two, steer clear of the lightest options and go for something darker and more forgiving.
Although it may seem like a lot to consider, decisions like this make a world of difference in how your deck looks and feels. Asking yourself the right questions makes it easier to choose the right options that you’re happier with long-term. You won’t need to make any changes in the near future because you took time to think things out thoroughly.
