Summer is officially here, which means most of us will be spending an abundance of time outdoors. This is exceptionally true for those that own an outdoor deck. The deck is essential to many due to needing an intimate area that is personal and calming yet stylish and fun. To bring the best out of a room, consider having a contemporary deck. Having a contemporary style will bring the most out of your square footage without taking away from it. Here is our take on contemporary deck ideas that are perfect for entertaining guests at any time for the day.
A Play on Hardwood
The type of hardwood you use on your deck is important, particularly if you want to bring a cozy touch to your outdoor space. When it comes to wood you want to play with multiple different kinds. Doing so will allow the space to feel different and fun while still bringing strength and durability to the forefront of your décor. The darker your wood the warmer your deck area will area, meanwhile, the lighter your wood the more subtle the unique feature will be.
Bring on the Greenery
While the deck is notorious for being a part away from most greenery items in your outdoor décor, it can work exceptionally well. In order to bring more greenery to your decor, you want to go for a visual wonderland. This is ideal for those that want to have a garden appeal even as part of their deck. Furthermore, bring on a new type of design by blending both worlds together.
Fire pits Anyone?
Keep your surrounding on your deck as simple yet authentic to the space as possible. What this means is you want to keep the area neutral with little to no additives, yet with just the right amount of décor. Additionally, consider getting the most out of your décor by adding a fire pit. Fire pits are great because they bring a cozy touch right when and where you need it.
Spotlight Your Pool
One way to make your pool the spotlight of your backyard is to bring stark focus to it. The key is decluttering your décor and bringing classic focus to your room. This can be done by naturally bringing a focus point to your pool. Furthermore, consider having a fun pool design.
