Now that weather is starting to get nice, you’ll likely be spending a lot of time on your deck. It is the ideal spot to relax outside with your family and friends. However, if your deck is looking a little less than wonderful, you may be searching for some ways to spice up your outdoor décor. Thankfully, it does not take a lot to transform your deck into a spot where you will want to spend a good chunk of your time this summer—finding the perfect outdoor area to set smaller details that pop. Read on for a few ideas for decorating a deck this spring.
Restore and Repair Your Decking
One of the primary reasons some might shy away from spending more time on their deck is because it is damaged or weathered. Before you consider going out of your way to add newer outdoor décor items, you have to fix up your deck first. Repair and replace broken boards that might need it. If you need assistance with this, give the decking contractors from Eastern Shore Porch and Patio a call today!
Pick the Right Furniture
Deck furniture can not only change the overall look of your deck, but it can ensure you are able to relax comfortably. Consider what you’ll be using the space for. Entertainment? A larger outdoor table with chairs will work. A space to sit and read outside? Consider investing in an outside couch and comfortable chairs for the furniture. For warmer days in the spring and summer, you will want to lounge around in something airy and light. Deck hammocks and chaise lounges are much more popular with homeowners today. There is nothing quite like spending a day with your feet up relaxing on your home’s deck.
Add Lighting Outdoors
Outdoor lighting is vital if you are using your deck during the night time, especially for those summertime gatherings. Not only will it add a lot of style to your deck, but it is excellent as a safety feature to have so you can enjoy your outdoor retreat into the evenings. Some good lighting ideas are:
- String lights
- Deck track lighting
- Deck post lighting
- Recessed deck lighting
- Globe lighting
Screen in Your Deck
It is hard to really enjoy your deck when bugs and other distractions make their way inside. Adding a nice screen to your deck can add to the overall enjoyment of your space as well as helping it look great. Consider adding a roof over your deck too, which will turn your deck into a sunroom along with the screen.
