Decks can extend living areas and provide more space for entertaining guests or spending some quiet time alone. They’re a nice and practical addition to houses, and their functionality and aesthetic value have continued to attract many homeowners in recent years.
Custom decks are an excellent project to work on during the renovation season, and experts have a few top choices when it comes to deck trends. Home remodeling contractor Timberland Exteriors shares three of the biggest deck trends this year. Whether it’s for homeowners who wish to update an existing deck or build a new one, these trends are guaranteed to give your home a fresh look.
Inspired by the exterior design choices of restaurants and urban markets, many homeowners are now also starting to look into decks made of composite materials. Experts usually suggest this type of material as well as aluminum railings to give decks an urban appeal and sophisticated finish. Others, however, use and mix up various materials like stone, glassand traditional wood to create textures. When done right, the combination of these materials can result in a stunning design.
Distressed hardwood flooring has been a favorite in the past few years and now it’s making its way into exterior design. Companies offering exterior home remodeling services usually recommend composite deck boards that feature a weathered appearance to get the rustic look and feel of real aged wood without worrying about maintenance.
Although “picture framing” is no longer a new trend, it still continues to enjoy a good amount of popularity among homeowners. This type of design involves adding a border to conceal the ends of deck boards and create a polished look. Some opt to use dark contrasting colors for the borders to create more impact.
