Outdoor living is one of the most popular trends in the home development industry. Custom decks provide homeowners with an ideal space for entertaining and can also boost property value. This versatile addition can be transformed into anything from a fully equipped outdoor kitchen to a fun party area.
Make the most of this investment by ensuring easy access from different areas, like your house and the backyard. The Deck Store shares ways to help make your deck more accessible.
From the Backyard
Decks are usually elevated, so if you’re coming from the backyard you’ll need stairs to access the deck. The steps can be of any width and height as long as they adhere to local building codes. For a seamless transition from your landscape, we recommend installing a landing pad and a walkway to act as a path to your deck. They should be made of a tough material, like brick or concrete, that complements your deck and your home’s exterior. Turn to an expert remodeler like The Deck Store for creative ways to incorporate a deck into your home’s design.
From the House
A back door is an easy access option for your deck, but you also have to determine where the door leads indoors. If it leads to the kitchen, entertaining is easier. If you plan on installing a hot tub on your deck, however, it may be best to have access to it from the master bedroom. You can also create a comfortable outdoor living extension of your home, by making your deck lead to the living room.
Choose a large sliding glass door that offers a view of the outdoors even when closed. This floods the room with light, helping you save on lighting expenses and creating the illusion of a larger, more open space.
