57 Cool Outdoor Deck Designs

cool outdoor deck designs cover

We’ve already told you of some terraces, porches, ponds and fountains to design your garden. Now maybe you need a deck – a place covered with wooden planks, kind of a terrace somewhere in your garden. What’s cool about a deck? You may walk barefoot and enjoy natural wood under your feet which is always warm due to the sun light. You may make a deck terrace, or a deck near the pool to lie in the sun, or create a gazebo for having meals outdoors. Veggie garden near the deck, or just some trees and plants would do but if you want some romance, put a jacuzzi and a fire bowl and enjoy your rest!

How To Style

Choose the decor you like: rustic, shabby chic, eclectic, modern, minimalist, Scandinavian, Nordic or any other. Once you’ve chosen, choose the furniture and decor accordingly: wooden furniture and a fire pit for a rustic space, minimalist wood and concrete furniture for a minimalist space, bright boho and rattan furniture for a boho deck. Wicker and rattan furniture match many decor styles, so you can pull them off for most of them. Think of built-ins – a built-in bench will save a lot of space, it can have some storage space inside, and such a solution will give you a more space, which isn’t wasted. You may add a canopy or an umbrella to hide from the sun.

How To Cozy Up

The first thing you should think of is privacy – make a screen or go for a living wall that will keep you private. Then consider lights – hanging them over the space, placing candle lanterns all around, creating a fire pit or a fireplace will help you create an ambience and coziness. Add printed rugs, bright pillows and cushions, a bright chandelier for decor and of course potted greenery and blooms that will refresh the space a lot.
