“Listen, we have three kids, two dogs, and a business,” Meredith said. “As nice as the idea of a romantic getaway sounds, in real life, that’s not in the cards for us. So that means you have to do what you can at home.”
“And she’s already remodeled the bedroom twice,” her husband Don laughed. “So when she asked if we could have a second-story deck built off of our bedroom, I kind of knew where she was heading with the whole thing.”
“Is there anything more romantic than watching the stars together?” Meredith said. “With a glass of wine?”
Creating the Romantic Deck
As deck builders in Milford, we know that designing the romantic deck is all about ambiance, privacy, and romantic amenities. Second story decks are a nice way to add a balcony to the master bedroom. These decks are often smaller than a first story deck – although we’ve built some second story decks that are large enough to accommodate hot tubs and other luxury amenities.
Everyone has their own vision of romance and how that’s best expressed in home design. Our deck design philosophy combines the classic elements of style presented in a way that captures the homeowner’s personality. For example, privacy elements can be created in countless ways, including country-casual latticework, the organic elegance of sculpted greenery, or with modern flair metal screening.
About those romantic amenities. Again, everyone has their own tastes, but it’s hard to go wrong with a fire feature. Whether you enjoy toasting marshmallows with your sweetheart or just want to relax by the flickering flames, a great fire feature is essential. Other popular options – waterfall fountains have their fans, and don’t overlook the potential of custom built seating that’s large enough for snuggling.
“Our bedroom deck was an anniversary present to ourselves,” Meredith said. “And it’s been worth every penny.”
