50 Beach Style Deck Design Photos

As one of the primary outdoor entertaining spaces, your deck is the go-to spot for hosting family and friends. Since it’s an extension of the indoor living space, it’s the best place to hold that summer barbecue or birthday party — just add a grill, good food, comfortable patio furniture and, of course, nice weather. While it’s great for parties, its breathtaking views and breezy locale make it a top-notch relaxation spot too. Regardless of its function, a beach style deck is the perfect addition to any family home. More

Our clients wanted an outdoor living space where they can entertain guests while giving them some privacy from the neighbors. The end result? We installed stainless steel cabinetry with a new bbq and sink area with storage to house utensils and other outdoor area equipment. We custom designed a gas fire-pit for those cool nights, and added a surrounding trellis to create a p...More

When you get ready to build a deck, do your homework on the material options. Keep in mind price, appearance and overall maintenance when making your decision. Once you settle on your material, start thinking about the shape and elevation of the space. Do you want a raised deck or just a platform? Do you want it covered or uncovered? Think about what is safe and practical for your family. Finally, make it feel like home by investing in high-quality outdoor furniture and fun decor.

What deck material should I use?


When deciding on a material, think about how much time and money you want to invest. Wood looks more natural, but it needs to be stained and weatherproofed frequently. On the other hand, composite is easier to care for but might not look as authentic. Plastic is a cheaper alternative, while aluminum is unique but also more expensive. In the end, budget and care are important, but be sure your final choice blends well with your home’s current beach style style as well.

What deck style works for my space?


Your outdoor space is easy to customize, so consider all your options before going forward. A raised deck often includes an outdoor staircase, which helps with backyard access, and it can either be covered or uncovered. A platform is placed on or just off the ground, while a multilevel space takes a little from both. You can even opt for a freestanding platform, which is placed out in the yard and not attached to the house.

How should I decorate my deck?


Once the construction decisions are done, it’s time to decorate! Comfortable patio furniture is what makes your outdoor space relaxing, so be sure you invest in a nice set. Include an umbrella and outdoor dining set for easy al fresco dining, and buy a weatherproof sofa and several chaise lounges for ultimate relaxation. And since your outdoor room is great for those cool summer nights, don’t forget about proper lighting.
