There are a lot of really nice homes in the Metrowest area – and a lot of them are pretty close together. If you’re trying to capture some of the comfortable aspects of country living – relaxing with the family, having fun with friends, enjoying the outdoors – you need space to make it happen and a reasonable amount of privacy.
That’s where the value of working with a deck designer becomes clear. Don’t limit yourself to the possibilities you can envision building – there’s so many design options, deck features, and customization elements to discover that can help you achieve the deck of your dreams.
Space saving deck design means making the most of the area you’ve got available. On some homes, this means building a second-story deck, or converting the area beneath the deck into a screen porch or sunroom.
Adding Privacy to Your Deck
Many homeowners like their neighbors and neighborhood, but would still prefer a certain degree of privacy when they’re enjoying their deck. There are several ways to approach this. Built in planters with shrubbery and trellised climbing plants is one easy, elegant way to obscure the view; of course, there are multiple fencing and screen options to choose from as well.
One very popular way to add privacy to your deck that also delivers the benefits of shade and protection from biting insects is having a screen porch built on your deck. You can have the screen porch built on top of an existing deck that’s in good condition, or if that’s not an option, a screen porch can be custom built to suit your family’s needs and your home’s style.
Enjoy Fall with a New Deck!
