A deck can create more living space and can easily add value to your home, so it's just as important to get the styling right out there as it is inside.
While there are no hard and fast rules, there are some guidelines which can help you make the most of what you have.
The colour of your deck is dictated by the materials used to build it, or the finish that was originally used.
Re-paint decks that have already been painted and re-oil those that were originally oiled.
No outdoor setting is complete without a beautiful sitting area. When choosing outdoor furniture, consider the size.
Avoid placing a full sized table in a narrow space, it will feel too cramped. Try to select furniture that suits the space you have so that you can move around freely.
With a little thought and planning your deck can be more thank a place to put your BBQ, it can be an extra outdoor room for your house.
