Decks are a great way to increase your Greensboro home value

Decks and custom decks will improve your home. One of the most economical ways to increase the value of your home is to build an outdoor living room or kitchen. In the simplest terms, you are adding a deck to your home, but the trend in new home design is to incorporate open air areas, patios, porticos and verandas with traditional living spaces. They are no longer just utility areas. Some homes use sliding doors or french doors to create a transition from the living room out on to the deck; or from the kitchen on to the deck.

Do not limit yourself to the standard lumber rendition that our fathers built, there are dozens of choices when it comes to flooring, screens or shades, appliances, lighting, and furniture. Be creative; discover unique ways to incorporate fountains or ponds. You can create warmth and a sense of nature with the use of hanging gardens, a trellis, or arbors. Without a doubt, a well planned outdoor living area can do wonders for the resale value of your home.

Stay within the design of you home

If your home is of a particular architectural style or color scheme, you should try to use the same style or a complementary design in your new outdoor living space. The object is to make your outdoor area feel like a true extension of your home. There are several new materials on the market that are created for exterior use, but they are complementary to interior design. You should consider the use of muted colors, earth tones, and understated colors that look natural and harmonize your exterior color scheme. Plants, flowers, and accessories should be your primary medium to add vibrant colors to your design.

Consider a serious kitchen on your deck

There is something intrinsic about our desire to cook and eat outdoors. This must be why picnics and lunch at the park is so appealing. If outdoor cooking is a passion of yours, consider a barbecue pit that includes plumbing, an outdoor oven or even a gas stove. Your outdoor kitchen will become regular hang out and a gathering place for your family as well as your guests. You will need space to prepare food, so consider incorporating counter space. The object is to keep the area self contained. If you need to run back and forth to your kitchen, why cook on the decks.

Creating ambiance with a custom deck

Festive lighting and gurgling fountains can turn your outdoor living space into a warm and inviting place day or night. Placing lights in stairways, trees, or along a pathway can give your space an enchanting ambiance. Creating the perfect outdoor space can take time and a lot of hard work. The payoff is a more inviting atmosphere for you and your family, and an increase the value of your home.
