Designing your new deck
 

Match your House
 

A deck should be more than just functional. When designed well, a deck
 adds beauty and character to your home, as well as value.
 

Keep it in Scale
A large flat deck outside a small house seems out of place - more like a landing platform than an inviting outdoor living area. Likewise, a small deck off a large house feels insecure, and is seldom useful. Make sure your deck is in scale with your house.

Take cues from an existing design

Fancy Trex Deck

To make a new deck seem as though it has always been part of your property, repeat some of your house's features in the deck's design. For example, stain or paint the decking/railing to match the shutters of your house or complement the house color.
