A deck will contribute to the appeal of your home and its overall value. The great thing about this outdoor living space is that you can use it for multiple functions. It is an ideal place for dining with the family, summer barbeques and even hosting gatherings with friends. However, make sure that the style of your deck is suitable for your home.
Get tips on how to choose the best deck style for your home from a trusted outdoor living and siding contractor.
Select Quality Materials
When choosing a deck material, consider how about maintenance your options will require, its durability, and lifespan. Going for a deck material that is easy to maintain will save you more money, time, and energy in the long run.
Consider How You Will Use Your Deck
Are you planning to use your deck for entertaining? If so, know that you will need enough space for your guests, a table, and seats. Consider a spacious, ground-level platform deck if you will use your deck for gatherings with family and friends.

Is Privacy an Issue?
You may want to add a hedge, barrier, or fence to your deck design if you want to increase the privacy of your outdoor space. Another option is to go for a raised deck, built on the second story. This design will offer you both privacy and an improved view.
Take Note of How Much Sun Your Deck Receives
If it tends to get sunny in your deck during the day, consider adding a shade. You may also want to think about moving the location of your deck to a place where there is not as much sun exposure. Moreover, an awning over your deck is one of the most cost-effective ways to block sunlight in your deck.
