Are you looking to build or renovate your deck? Get some ideas from these top deck trends of 2015, courtesy of Main Line deck builder V.C.G. Construction. We make a point of keeping up with the latest styles so that our clients get the best products out there.
Who doesn’t love lounging on the deck? Great for relaxation, a well-designed outdoor space is the perfect place to spend a summer evening (or get a tan on a summer afternoon)!
- Decks aren’t just tiny squares with just enough room for an adirondack chair and a grill anymore. Sprawling spaces as big as the home’s lower floor are pretty common these days — because why not make room for built-in seating and storage?
- Clients these days need a Main Line deck construction company that can build a deck with multiple levels! What’s great about this trend is that you can create more than one entertaining area — or you can work with your designer to ensure easy communication between levels.
Wood is still king when it comes to Main Line deck building, but composite materials are surging in popularity. This trend rose to prominence because composite materials never need to be painted and are extremely resistant to rot. Plus, they look awesome!
- Speaking of composite materials, we’re seeing more diverse choices when it comes to the colors clients want. Many are opting for two-toned decking boards that mimic mahogany or oak, while others are choosing charcoal or gray instead of brown. Why not?
5. Curved decks.
- Why be square when the possibilities with curved deck designs are endless? These decks are unique, beautiful, and tailored to your home and yard.
- Goodbye tiki torches, hello permanent accent lighting. The Main Line deck builder of 2015 knows how to design and install the aesthetic outdoor lighting clients love. Think low-voltage fixtures that don’t cost much but make night-time lounging much more appealing.
- Gone are the days when decks didn’t incorporate the grill into their designs. Deck trend alert: Get rid of that ancient charcoal grill and replace it with a built-in gas grill customized for your deck.
