It’s not too late in the season to make the most of your backyard this summer with a custom deck from JM Construction / JM Kitchen and Bath, home remodeling contractors in St. Louis, MO. Not only is a deck the perfect way to extend your living space, creating the perfect outdoor oasis, but it’s also a good investment for your home.
Heading outside is good for your mental and physical well-being and will be your favorite place to enjoy your morning coffee, relax with a drink after a long day, curl up and read a good book, enjoy dinner al fresco, or soak in the sunshine on a beautiful day. Incorporate some of these design ideas to personalize your new deck, making it comfy, cozy, and inviting.
Make It Comfy: Outdoor furniture should look and feel comfortable! Get some cushy cushions, throw pillows, and an outdoor rug.
Outdoor Dining: Be sure to have a table and enough seats to accommodate your family and friends for backyard barbeques.
Keep It Shady: Be sure to have umbrellas available for a cool, shady spot. You might also want to consider adding a pergola to your deck for an interesting feature piece that also offers shade.
Add Lighting: Decks aren’t just for daytime usage. Be sure to add strategically placed lighting around your deck for evening usage.
Make It Homey: String lights, illuminated lanterns, beautiful potted plants, a comfy rug, and festive decor to make your deck feel as cozy as your indoor space.
There’s a whole lot you can do with a new deck to make it a beautiful and functional extension of your indoor space. Have plenty of seating options, lounge chairs, umbrellas for shade, and incorporate your personal touches to create the ultimate outdoor living space.
