We’re living in unique times right now. Everyone’s concerned about the COVID-19 virus. Events, festivals, concerts and vacation plans are being cancelled all over the place. Many children’s schools are closed for the moment, and it’s not clear what’s going to happen when summer vacation season arrives.
If you’re thinking that you’ll be staying close to home, you’re going to need a strategy to keep the kids entertained. Easier said than done – especially if you don’t want the little ones glued to their phones or tablets all day long. Luckily, having your Franklin deck company hook you up with a family friendly deck will make keeping the kids entertained easier than you ever imagined.
Here are the essential features of a family-friendly deck:
The Screen Room
Screen rooms can be built on your deck, or you can have the area underneath a second story deck converted into a three-season room or screen porch. There are several reasons screen rooms are great for families with kids: they make keeping the kids contained super simple, the screen prevents bites from ticks and mosquitoes, and the screen room can provide much needed shade on a sunny day.
The Kid’s Zone
The advantage of working with a Franklin deck contractor is you can have a fully customized deck. If you’ve got small kids and want to have a covered sand box built into your deck, that can absolutely happen. Need a platform to set up the trampoline or other outdoor toys? Floating decks are a great solution. Want climbing features, built in storage for the kids’ toys, or a slide that takes kids from the deck into the back yard? Everything is possible!
Investing in Your Deck Boosts The Value of Your Home
In addition to making your home more fun for the kids, a great deck boosts your home’s curb appeal. And as we all know, good looking homes command higher market prices. It’s a smart investment!
