Making Your Outdoor Space Liveable
Many people love decks. They are beautiful, can be customized, and add much needed functional space to your backyard. Decks improve your outdoor living space by adding a place to comfortably sit while entertaining guests outdoors. They are great for sitting, entertaining, and listening to the birds chirp and the bees buzz. Soothing and relaxing, decks and patios are some of homeowners favorite additions to their outdoor living space.

We can design your deck around existing features, such as landscaping, ponds, and pools, or use your deck to add in a spa.

Decks and patios have long been a staple of American homes. However, they have truly only come into their own in the last decade or so. When they were first beginning to be built in the 1970s on homes, they were small, rectangular shapes that measured only about 8 by 10 feet. That's tiny compared to the massive decks that are quite common today. This small space only allowed for limited extra functionality, such as for a grill to have a place to sit. Decks were almost always built out of hardwood, which varied depending on the part of the country you lived in.

Many homeowners love the idea of having usable outdoor living space, and having a space for your grill to sit is important indeed. One of the best features of adding a deck to your home is the fact that you'll get more bang for your buck than adding an indoor addition. It's a minimum cost per square footage, and when or if you go to sell your home, you can see on average a 75% return on this investment.
While adding value to your home is a perk, many love the idea of having a unique space outdoors that they can enjoy. Most decks are located off the main floor living area or kitchen. It is extremely easy to grab your cup of coffee and a book in the morning and go outside and sit and read. You'll breathe in fresh air, soak in the relaxing sounds of nature, and fortify your mind and spirit for your tasks ahead. A deck can be used for many tasks, from relaxing and entertaining to eating and even exercising. If you invest in a covered deck, you can put a TV outside as well and unwind with your favorite shows in the crisp, cool air.
Depending on the size of your deck, you can significantly decrease your landscaping and mowing needs with a deck addition. This is especially important as you age and yard work becomes harder to keep up with. While this is a minor benefit of adding a custom-designed deck to your outdoor space, it is one to consider, especially if you are considering aging in place.
For many, additional entertainment space is a must-have these days. Having parties indoors can be fun during the winter, but if you have a lot of people, it can become claustrophobic quickly. Plus, your home may not be big enough with a growing family, and having the option of being outside on a covered deck can be life-saving, especially if you have little kids who need to wear off their energy. You can also sit outside and watch your kids easily with a great deck design by Compass Outdoor Design in Dallas/Fort Worth.
A lot of homeowners realize that storage space can be at a premium these days, especially if you have a growing family. From storing strollers, cribs, and extra toys to the need for Christmas and holiday storage, storage space can run out quickly, even when you use the garage for household items instead of your vehicles. Depending on the size of your deck, you can purchase a storage shed or container to hold a variety of tools, from gardening tools to the kids' outdoor toys. Not to mention having a dedicated space for your patio set and grill is important as well.
