Which Type of Deck Should you Choose?

Memorial Day Weekend has come and gone and the season for entertaining outside is officially upon us! Are you someone who likes to host a big party? Do you envision BBQs and lawn games or quiet, candlelit outdoor dinners? No matter your style, there’s a deck for you, and as the official deck experts in Montgomery County, PA, we’ll help you find it!

Here are our favorite styles of decks to lounge, play and entertain:

Classic Deck.

A traditional or classic deck is perfect for relaxing with the family, chatting with friends in the summer or lounging with a good book. This style is hallmarked by wicker or teak wood and warm, comfortable cushions—usually striped, floral or traditional colors. There’s something nostalgic about this style; choose this classic look for ultimate comfort.

Contemporary Deck.

Feel like your backyard should make a statement? You’ll want this contemporary deck with all of its modern furniture, bright color combinations and interesting, geometric shapes. We love all of the options out there for materials and decor: plastic, aluminum, low-luster metals, etc. We also love to see how our clients combine them! Don’t forget that lighting can play a big part in giving your deck a contemporary feel, and so can adding trendy succulents or greenery!

Rustic Chic Deck.

A deck with a vintage country vibe is the perfect place to gather with friends for a 5-star home-cooked meal. Repurpose containers for potted plants and grab an eclectic mix of seating and you’re halfway to a beautifully rustic-looking deck. For the furniture, we recommend aged or refurbished woods or metals mixed with soft vintage colors and the occasional bright bold ones. Add whimsy wherever possible!

Nautical Deck.

This one is a no-brainer if you’re decorating a deck for your beach, lake or pool house! It’s also one of the easiest styles to pull off. Pale blues and yellows mixed with off-white will go swimmingly with beach-themed decor like rope, shells, driftwood, and corals. In fact, there’s so much possibility with this look, your biggest challenge will be not to overdo it!
