Deck Builders in Denver Discuss 2017 Trends


Now that winter is finally coming to an end, it’s time to start planning summer gatherings with your friends and families. But, if you don’t have a beautiful deck outside of your home, there’s no place for you to host a summer party! Don’t worry—Ridgeline Design and Build can help you transform your outdoor space into a breathtaking deck. Take a look at some of these deck remodeling trends to get started:

Fully Stocked Kitchens
Most outdoor decks are just a few steps away from the kitchen, but that hasn’t stopped homeowners from embracing the fully stocked kitchen trend when remodeling their decks. Today’s decks have sinks, refrigerators, cabinets, countertop space, and of course, a built-in grill. Your new outdoor kitchen doesn’t have to be the same size as your indoor kitchen. But, it should have all the appliances you need to fire up the grill and serve your family and friends.

If you plan on creating an outdoor kitchen/deck, be sure to talk to our team about what materials you should choose. It’s important to choose materials that are resistant to moisture and weather, so you shouldn’t necessarily just choose the same materials you have in your regular kitchen. Here are some outdoor kitchen countertop options.

Green Materials
More and more homeowners are becoming eco-conscious, so green materials have increased in popularity over the years. How can you make your deck more eco-friendly? Start with the lights. Choose a light that turns on when it senses motion so you don’t have to waste energy by keeping your deck lit at all hours. You should also talk to our team about choosing green building materials such as composite decking, which is a blend of wool fiber and recycled plastic.

Calming Atmosphere
There’s no better place to kick back and relax than an outdoor deck. But, how can you can create a calming atmosphere on your deck so you can finally get a little peace and quiet? Just add water! The trickle of a water fountain will instantly calm your nerves and put your mind at ease. Or, you can go one step further by installing a hot tub so you can really create a spa-like atmosphere.

Larger Spaces
In the past, decks were typically only big enough to fit a grill and a few patio chairs for guests, but that’s not the case anymore. Homeowners are beginning to ask for larger decks so they can spend more time outdoors during the warmer months. If you want more outdoor space, feel free to expand your deck further into your yard to make your dream a reality.
