Whether you already have a deck on your home or you are looking to build one, 2017 is offering some wonderful new trends to the tried and true decks of the past fifty years. With the advancements in technology, woodworking, and architectural projects are no longer limited to straight lines and wood colors. Some of these trends are bold and never been done before while others are new takes on older ideas. One thing is certain that your deck is not your grandparent's deck anymore.
New Design Ideas
There are a plethora of new design ideas for building a deck in 2017. One large area of change is the increase of bended wood. Circles are very trendy in all home decorating areas. People are enjoying the look of circles inside their home through paintings, windows, and artwork. It would only make sense that this trend extends to the new deck as well. Another area that is changing quickly is the material with which a deck is being built. While wood is still preferred for many decks, it does not always hold up to the elements Therefore, many people are opting for a new material that can withstand harsh winters, rainy seasons, and extreme conditions while still look beautiful. Some are even choosing to put their deck on their roof to maximize space and build a deck that will outlast the season.
Finally, when building or restoring an older deck, people are turning to virtual design to see their vision before the world is even started. This allows clients to work on the project without beginning the expansive physical labor that building a deck requires.
The Trend in Restoration
Or those that love their deck, but need a little change, there is a new trend to notice: gray stains. Gray is more than just one color as well. There are eight different shades of gray from which to choose. Gray has become very popular with homeowners and business owners alike when it comes to deck color options People feel it adds something that may have been missing in the past. Furthermore, it helps your deck stand out from the sea of wood colored decks that are often seen in every neighborhood, giving your deck a life of its own.
