Five Ways To Take Your Porch or Deck To The Next Level

Sitting out on a deck or porch while sipping on a refreshing, cold beverage or just soaking up some beautiful summer weather is a pastime enjoyed by many – especially Minnesotans. Whether you’re entertaining family and friends or sunbathing with a good book, it never fails to be relaxing. Sprucing up your deck or porch this season is a great way to enhance the experience. That’s why we’ve put together a list of trendy options to take your outdoor space to the next level.

Think Wet

There’s no better way to beat the heat than by taking a dip in a swimming pool. ​On the other hand, think of how much more relaxing it would be to watch a sunset from inside a hot tub. Neither option is ever regretted by patio owners.


Mix it up

Get creative with your deck flooring. Using different toned materials will give the ​floor a contemporary look. Also, switch up the mundane deck flooring technique by running the boards in various directions.

Be Curvy

There’s no rule that says a deck needs to be perfectly proportional. Curved edges are not only more attractive to the eye but also give a space flow and an added playful element.


Cover it Up

Don’t let the weather define when you are allowed to spend time out on your porch. Awnings keep out the rain and also provide shade when it’s a scorcher outside. If you still want to soak up some UV rays while on the deck, a plexiglass or fiberglass roof could give you the best of both worlds.

Maximize Your Space

Built-in benches along the railings can make a small deck look spacious. This even gives you some extra room to add other decor like a stylish free​ standing fire pit.


Enhance your deck or porch by implementing any or even all of these features. When it comes down to it, we want you to have the outdoor space you’ve always been dreaming of. Let us help you make those dreams a reality.
