Fall is the best part of the year in the Metrowest area – the colors are beautiful, all of the mosquitoes have given up bugging everyone, and the cold winter winds have yet to arrive. Are you enjoying this glorious season on your deck? Keep reading to discover the 3 creative deck design features that make outdoor living fun for Metrowest families:
The Fire Feature: Let’s be real – there’s nothing more romantic than sitting next to your special someone, watching the flames crackling together. And the kids have to go to bed sometime, right?
Fire features can range from super-simple – fire pits that sit on your deck – to built-in sunken fire pits or outdoor fireplaces. When you’re working with your Metrowest outdoor deck contractor, talk to them about fire features you’ve seen and admired. It’s important to talk about how easy you’d like using your fire feature to be. If you like using wood the old fashioned way, you’ve got one range of options. If you prefer the push-button ease of gas, there’s another range. You’re going to have a great time picking the one that’s right for your family and your style.
Built In Storage: We know – it’s not as sexy as the fire feature. But having your outdoor deck contractor hook you up with built in storage for things like outdoor furniture cushions and the kids’ toys makes it super simple to keep your deck looking picked up and tidy.
Composite Decking: The ultimate family friendly feature is a low maintenance deck that frees up valuable time for fun together. Choosing composite decking means you never have to spend time stripping, staining, or sealing your deck ever again! An added bonus – composite decking comes in a variety of colors, from the classic and conservative to the bright and bold – choose the look that best matches your family’s personality!
