As the weather warms up, a deck remodel is a great thing to add to your to-do list, especially in Southern California. Now’s the perfect time to make the most out of your outdoor space and truly make it your own. The best way? Perfect your plans for a deck addition. If you have had your deck and lived with it for a while, this is your chance to personalize your space, take all the things you have been wishing for about your deck, and make it a reality. Keep reading for our curated deck addition ideas to make your outdoor space shine.


Leveling Up your Deck Remodel

If you’re looking to get on a whole new level with your deck addition, you have options! To maximize your deck space, consider adding a second level. The extra space will be more than worth it when you have all of the room you need to entertain your friends and family, or simply to relax with a private area all to yourself! If a multi-level deck isn’t something you have room for, one of the most popular deck add-on ideas is to take the existing level and create a sunken space. This modern look is ideal for making your add-on feel like a full deck remodel.


Keeping it Cool

Just because days get longer, doesn’t mean you have to spend them indoors. With the addition of a pergola, you can get some needed shade for the summer months and get a detailed design upgrade that will make your space feel new! If you want to secure the space for both winter and summer, a roof deck addition is your best bet. Your options open up with a roof, including hanging light fixtures, plants, and even floating chairs!


Brightening Up

One time of day you won’t want to miss spending on your deck is at night. Whether hosting a dinner or planning a party, your deck addition needs built-in lights that suit your style. For a modern look, opt for lighting that integrates with your railing or deck posts. This simple and clean look will save you space and distribute light around your entire deck. For a more traditional look, a hanging light fixture such as a chandelier or lantern can allow you to play around with the exterior design and have your space compliment your style. 


Going Green with your Deck Remodel 

If you are looking for the ideal place to put a garden, look no further. A deck is often the most convenient place to add your favorite plants. When planning your deck addition, consider making your railing into a planter wall. Add your favorite flowers for some color, or even an herb garden to complete an outdoor kitchen!
