How to Boost Your Composite Deck’s Functionality and Visual Appeal

How to Boost Your Composite Deck’s Functionality and Visual Appeal

To make the very most of your composite deck, it is important to consider both function and form when designing the area.

Outdoor living spaces are some of the best investments you could ever make as a homeowner. They add to your property’s overall value, boost curb appeal, and provide you with the ideal space for entertainment. To make the very most of this investment, it is important to consider both function and form when designing the area. Read on for a few landscaping and design tips to help improve your composite deck set up for the future!

Decorate the Deck Edges

A composite deck looks much larger when the space is strategically decorated and set up with plants and furniture. Create a floor plan that will allow you to maximize all of the space, making sure to decorate the deck edges as well. You could add railing planters, furniture, and free-standing containers around the perimeter that will help draw the eye to your deck. If you have a particularly big area to work with, consider creating seating areas with many different vantage points. This will help make your deck feel and look bigger and provide many more places for you and your guests to kick back and enjoy the view.

Use Color for Real Impact

Just like the interior, your composite deck will benefit from the wise use of color. Colorful plants, accessories, and some outdoor cushions can help put your very own personal touch to space without sacrificing comfort or beauty. When picking colors for your deck, you could draw inspiration from your house’s other exterior elements or from nature itself. Contrasting shades can help boost visual impact, all while complementing palettes to create a calming and pleasing atmosphere. As an experienced deck building company, we can help you pick colors that highlight your deck’s best features.

Create Zones

Defining zones on your deck ensures that your entire area is being used. Make sure that you’ve got enough space to eat, cook, and relax, all without being crowded. One way to do this is by picking a specific set of furniture for each area. You could also use planters and other outside décor to divide space into different areas while also boosting your aesthetic appeal.
