Having fun with personalizing your deck will not only make for a pleasant experience with various aesthetical advantages, but it will also add value to your home. The flair of a deck used in a particular, charming way will raise the market price of your house and turn your decking installation into a lucrative investment.
Though researching on what you seek to do with the extended living space is advisable, it is imperative to allow spontaneity in your customizations as uniqueness is the best alternative to costly decorations. To fully take pleasure in spending time on your deck, do not shy away from slight eccentricities that may set the area apart from the rest of the house or in discoveries of new ways to use materials and make sitting spaces!
Make a luxurious lounge area with one statement item
By putting a daybed onto your deck, you ensure it becomes a pleasant area to lounge across and enjoy the fresh air. Daybeds have the advantage of, through their novelty, giving an exotic appeal to the area they are placed on. Furthermore, they are highly versatile and adaptable. They may be used for an afternoon siesta during the warmer season or as a seat for many should you have company you wish to take outside. You can change the complete look of your daybed simply by switching cushions or going for unique patterns on their coverings. The simplicity of daybeds makes them some of the most affordable furniture on the market yet their modern appeal gives them an air of luxury that will give your deck a lush flair.
Make it Moroccan
This customization option is both very singular and a convenient way to hide your deck’s weathering. By installing a rug or carpet and a few pillows on your chosen deck area, you make it a quaint space to spend time. Choosing a rug or carpet with unusual patterns will heighten the particularity of the design, whilst the pillows and cushions will suggest comfort and invite lounging. This style is particularly popular in Morocco, where lounging areas have low furniture, which is deemed to both make the space appear larger and increase comfort. This living space does not require tables or chairs and makes switching from sitting up to having an afternoon nap almost effortless. Most going with this option seek to use their decking to provide their home some charm fragrant with foreign charm and uniqueness.
Install special lighting
This may be the option that appears the most conservative, but that provides the most striking results. Lighting can change the whole atmosphere of a place. Depending on what you seek to do on your deck (find refuge for an afternoon read/nap or make it a reception space), you will find lighting that caters to your most glamorous fantasies. A wide range of colors, tints and intensities of lighting are available. The lighting will, against the garden, cast a picturesque appearance to the house and be both easy to install and to maintain. To achieve the most character, it is advised to place the lights in the boarding of the deck. You could for instance, go for different colors or tones evolving in a sequence. This is a sure way to liven up an area with a small, simple investment!
Make it your second garden
Greenery is one of the most popular and least expensive ways of personalizing your decking. Plants are said to have therapeutic mental benefits such as lowering stress and inviting serenity. You may, like many, find pleasure in the maintenance of your plants and in sitting among them. This can also enable you to have plants you may find hard to keep in a garden, such as Yuccas, Bergenias, ‘Green Mountain’ Buxus etc. This would require very little investment other than the seeds and the pots, which you may also use as statement pieces for your decking.
Use it as your new dining area during summer
During seasons in which you enjoy being outside, buying a retractable table for your decking is a way to ensure pleasant meals amidst greenery with a relatively small investment. You may choose not to buy any more chairs and instead use the ones you already have. All you would need so a beautiful tablecloth or even a personalized sheet to give this charm without expense. Having a dining table outside will allow you to make the best out of the sunlight during meals and offer a refreshing alternative to hosting indoor lunches for possible guests.
