3 Deck Plans for a Unique Outdoor Living Space


Your custom deck can transform your outdoor living space, with these ideas.

Does your outdoor space feel uninspired? You might need a deck to liven things up. At MBC Remodeling, we’ll customize your deck or screened porch plans to suit your style, whether it be classic or modern or somewhere in between. Of course, that means it’s up to you to decide what you want to do with your custom deck, what will make your outdoor space really stand out as something unique. But we’re here to help with a few ideas to jog some inspiration.


Get Away, Without Leaving Home

Sometimes you need a vacation, even if the funds for travel aren’t there. When that happens, it can be nice to step onto your backyard deck and feel as though you’ve been transported somewhere else. You can do this with comfortable deck furniture, atmospheric lighting, and plants or flower beds nearby that help the deck to feel more natural. You can also install a pool or hot tub in your deck as a place to relax after a long day. You might not be able to take off for the beach, but spending a few hours on your deck at night will help you decompress from the stress of the day to day. Looking for something a little more natural? Take your favorite tree near your house and design your deck around that so that it seems to spring from the surface of the deck.

Expand Your Entertainment

Do you love to entertain? With your deck, you can expand your entertainment space and add a natural ambiance to the day. Here again, comfortable deck furniture is important, as well as durable decking material. You can also consider add-ons like a grill or an outdoor kitchen, so you can continue to be part of the party, even while you get dinner ready. Another option is to bring a long dining table onto the deck, so you and your friends and family can dine under the stars.

Small But Meaningful

Bigger isn’t always better when it comes to decks. Sometimes a small deck in your backyard can help it seem more spacious. A corner deck can fill out parts of your home’s design that feel a little bland or empty. The key here is placement. By extending a small deck into the yard, along a patch of garden or trees, it feels like a pathway into the natural outdoor space — classy but understated. You can also install a gazebo or pergola over your small deck for a bit of shade. Want to discuss more deck ideas? Contact MBC Remodeling today for more information or a free consultation.
