How to Utilize the Space Beneath Your Deck

Installing a Distinctive Deck Designs deck area in your outdoor space is the perfect way to add value to your home. But it doesn’t have to stop there! Consider all the ways you can transform the space beneath your deck to elevate your backyard even more than you already have. Under deck solutions like added storage, or patio installation will allow you to get the most out of your deck design.

Create a stunning patio design underneath your deck

Distinctive Deck Designs offers patio designs that will fit perfectly under your high deck. Our team will ensure that your custom deck design allows for the right amount of space to add a covered patio to your Northern Virginia home. Our patio construction company only uses quality materials from top manufacturers like Techo-Bloc and EP Henry to ensure a long-lasting product. Beat the heat of the North Virginian summer and enjoy extra living space with patio design. Consider hanging a porch swing or twinkly lights to create an unbeatable ambiance under your deck.

Use the space underneath your deck for storage

A popular, under the deck solution, is to keep your outdoor maintenance supplies and extraneous items in a storage compartment. If your deck is too low to create more living space, utilizing the space for storage is a wonderful option. Beneath the deck is a great place to store things that don’t need climate-controlled storage and can potentially free up space in your garage or basement!

Other creative under deck solutions:

  • Build a shed under your deck
  • Create a playing area for children
  • Plant a garden
  • Add skirting or latticework under your deck.
