Renovating your home can be a rejuvenating and healthy task for most people; it involves planning and recreating a space into something new, inviting a new kind of energy and aura into the home, and gives your home a breath of fresh air. Renovating the space outside your home changes the way your home looks, and provides your home with a new feel – to you and to those who visit your house.
Choosing to transform the outer space of your home is a good idea because it increases the resale value of your home, should you ever consider putting your home on the market in the future. One way in which you can change your outdoor space is by building a deck. A deck can help transform your backyard, giving you a place to relax and enjoy the sun; a new space to entertain guests, and can help add to your vision of outdoor living.
Platform decks are the simplest kinds of decks – they are one level built low to the ground. Platform decks are the classic decks you tend to see at most homes, and can form a stage for various activities during the summer. Platform decks will allow you to add other accessories onto the deck – like seating arrangements, plants, and even a gazebo.
Multilevel decks tend to have two to three and sometimes even four, main platforms that are joined by stairs or walkways. If you choose to connect each platform with a staircase, you will be able to enjoy different views from each part of the structure. This kind of deck works if your backyard is sloped, because it adds to your backyard. If you have an in-ground pool, multilevel decks can help add to the poolside experience.
Freestanding decks are not attached to your house, and tend to stand apart from your home. This is a useful option if there is no space near your house for a deck. Freestanding decks are built with strong foundations, with footings, posts, and beams. These decks can be placed almost anywhere in your yard, which gives you the freedom of designing your backyard, using your deck as a useful and unique accessory. Therefore, you can use the deck to open your backyard and add more space – and you’ll be able to use the deck for multiple purposes, like having a barbecue, or even installing a bar.
Raised decks are installed if a part of your home is raised off the land because of the terrain. This kind of deck can be used to add a new style to your home, and will provide fabulous views of your property. However, make sure that safety precautions are strictly followed when constructing this deck.
