Popular Deck Designs
When it comes to designing a contemporary deck, less is always more. At Excel Fencing and Decking, we can use low maintenance decking materials like PVC for a more modern, contemporary look and feel. When incorporated into a thoughtful contemporary deck design, composite decking and PVC are create sleek clean lines that give contemporary decks their distinct look. Glass rails or cable-lined walls are a nice complement for contemporary styles of decks.
A traditional style deck is most commonly built with wood decking material, such as cedar or redwood, and exudes a timeless charm. They can be designed in various shapes, but usually follow a traditional, cottage style of design.
Classical architecture is the inspiration behind a colonial style deck. These are usually platform decks, with little change in elevation that follows a symmetrical design. White railings are used as accents and planter boxes and benches bring in natural comfort to this design. To accentuate a colonial deck, pergolas with white pillars are also incorporated into the design and add dimension.
Sometimes when designing a deck, there is a landscape that is only visible from above ground level. That is when we would suggest building a multi-level deck. Multi-level decks are connected by a stairwell a walkway, which keeps most structures below eye-level with your view off the deck always in mind. These decks are also a good choice when your yard is a sloped terrain because the stairwells mask the uneven land.
