5 New Trends in Northern Virginia Deck Construction

The outdoor living expansion business has catapulted just in the past decade. Our Northern Virginia deck builders want to keep you in the loop with new ways to enjoy your outdoor living space year-round! Here are five new trends we see popping up in decks throughout the Fairfax area.

Lower Level Decks

Many homes throughout Northern Virginia have elevated, tiered decks. However, many Northern Virginia homeowners are now building patio expansions with a lower level deck like the one below.

This safe, level space is ideal for entertaining. It also eliminates concerns of children or pets tracking in mud or tripping on uneven ground. Often, a lower level deck will extend from the natural patio space of the home and outward into the front or back yard. It also transitions the home’s interior to the outdoor area.

Underdeck Conversions

While the idea is not new, converting underdeck spaces into usable outdoor living areas are always in style. Some of the most popular underdeck conversions are covered patios with hidden storage options. For this style, you need experienced Northern Virginia that will work out slope grading and electrical installation and incorporate beautiful composite materials or stone work into your patios. We want you to enjoy a dry living area without worry of runoff or damaged furniture.

More Than a Space for Entertainment

How would you like to yell, “FORE!” from the top of your deck? Many homeowners combine their hobbies with outdoor living. Add a tee line or putting green to your deck and practice your swing any time.

Outdoor Kitchen on Deck

How would you like to cook completely outdoors during warmer months? Some homeowners may think an outdoor kitchen is only possible on patios, but with improvements in deck design, you can now have a full outdoor kitchen on your deck, too! This style of deck is more complicated to build, but is well worth it for grill masters and amateur chefs alike. Try this look with a curved deck and eye-catching pergola for shade and style.

Gazebo Space

You want to enjoy your outdoor space even when it’s drizzling. Create a perfect reading nook or gathering space by installing a sunroom on your Fairfax deck. This enclosed covered deck allows you to enjoy beautiful views year-round. Sunrooms are a classic look for Fairfax-area homes. Our licensed patio contractors for the Northern Virginia market will make sure your sunroom blends in with your home’s exterior.
