Inviting, Contemporary Front Deck
The tan painted wooden deck in the front of the home becomes the main attention grabber, while the house is painted white with neutral toned window shutters. Hanging flowers bring the deck together and accent the neutral colors nicely.
Red cushioned furniture grouped around a stone table creates an inviting conversation area on this spacious deck nestled in a wooded landscape. A large arbor offers shade and another eye-catching element.
This rooftop deck offers several options for seating: You can cozy up on the sectional, recline on the lounge chairs or gather around the outdoor dining table. Artificial grass stands in for an outdoor rug and helps define the separate seating areas.
A sliding glass door connects the deck area to the living room. “It’s really an extension of the living room,” explains HGTV Smart Home 2015 designer Linda Woodrum. “It adds to the sense of space in the whole downstairs.”
The contemporary deck designed by Jamie Durie of The Outdoor Room features moveable floating seating with planter boxes. The homeowners have endless options for creating the perfect outdoor entertaining spot.
Perfect for entertaining large parties, a built-in bench curves around the entire lower section of this deck. Planter boxes are integrated into the bench, bringing a touch of color to the space. A band of composite decking in a different shade visually separates the stacked stone fire pit area.
