5 Deck Upgrades for Your Home eastern shore porch and patio

Here are some deck upgrades to transform it from basic to extravagant.

Aside from your yard, decks are another extension of your home’s exterior. Decks are an essential part of your outdoor living space, serving many different functions, including lounging, cooking, and hosting events. As an essential part of your outdoor living space, it is ideal for keeping your deck looking its best and upgrading it when the opportunity arises. Upgrading your deck can go a long way in enhancing its appeal, space, comfort, and functions. Here are some tips for upgrading your deck, transforming it from basic to extravagant.

Add Screening to Your Deck

Adding screens to your deck enhances its appeal. Screens add a border around your deck, creating a sense of privacy and protection. Screens can block your view from the neighbors and protect you from dirt, bugs, and other elements while maintaining an open and airy outdoor feel.

Incorporate Outdoor Lighting

Installing lighting on your deck is ideal for navigating and using your deck at night. Lighting options can range from lanterns, railing lights, spotlights, in-floor lights, solar lights, and hanging lights, to name a few. Outdoor lighting can transform the look and space of your deck entirely, enhancing its appeal and creating a relaxing atmosphere, especially at night. The glow illuminating from your deck at night is ideal for enjoying activities in the evening, including dinner, lounging, and spending time with your loved ones.

Add Shade for Comfort

Adding shading to your deck is great for enhancing the comfort of your outdoor living space. By adding umbrellas, pergolas, canopies, and awnings to your deck, you can protect it from the sun or rain, keeping you and your guests comfortable in any weather.

Upgrade Your Railings

Upgrading your railing enhances your deck’s safety while increasing its appeal. Railing options come in a variety of materials and styles. You can integrate styles matching your home’s exterior or go for a new look.

Refinish the Deck

Refinishing your deck is an easy upgrade to do. It provides your deck with a newer and cleaner look while also adding a layer of protection to it. Refinishing protects your deck from mold, rotting, cracking, and water damage that can accrue over time.
