Whether your backyard is large or small, adding a deck to it can jazz up the exterior of your home and increase your home’s value. You can add a deck almost anywhere outdoors. There are a variety of decking designs that will allow you to enjoy more time with friends and family. Choose decking designs according your needs and your space. For instance, build an outdoor kitchen and dining space on your deck with a built-in grill adjacent to a work space with a sink and countertop covering a built-in fridge. You can raise and extend the back of the countertop to create a bar that’s deep enough for bar stools. Consider one large dining table with seating for six to eight, or two smaller tables to create more intimate seating and separate work spaces. Outdoor tables provide an opportunity to enjoy more time outside while you’re working on a laptop or a craft project. Sprinkle containers with dwarf fruit trees and colorful annuals to complete the design.
