Get Deck’d Out with These Deck Design Ideas

Ideas using a variety of deck materials.

The nights are long, the drinks are cold, and your grill is fired up—it’s finally deck season in Madison (and the greater Wisconsin area). Create a space for family and friends to congregate all summer long with one of our deck design ideas. 

1| Plant for a Good Time
One of our favorite deck design ideas features built-in planters for the avid gardener. 
Built-in planters are the perfect choice for those who love lounging and gardening equally (via This Old House).

2| Ipe Inclination

Tropical hardwoods like rich Ipe are perfect for decks as they’re naturally hard, insect proof, and weather resistant (via Bustler). Keep in mind that tropical hardwoods are on the expensive end of the deck materials spectrum.

3| Gray Gardens

Gray flagstone and matching hardwood decking meet halfway to a gorgeous pool area.

4| Raised Walkway

A modern raised deck sans railings creates a seamless transition from deck to lawn. 

5| Octagonal Oasis

An open octagon bump-out creates a natural seating area with space for a fire pit on this maintenance-free composite deck.

6| Eye of the Tiger

Striking Tigerwood is arranged in a chevron pattern, guiding the eye to a gorgeous view (via This Old House).

7| Hybrid Haven

The most versatile of our deck design ideas is a half sunroom, half deck hybrid. A three season room opens to a small deck with space for grilling (and chilling).

8| Wrap Around

Don’t waste a good view—use treated lumber to wrap a narrow deck around the back of your home that faces the best parts of your property.

9| Redwood Retreat

Vibrant redwood or natural cedar shines bright from a deck complete with round fire pit, shady pergola, and hot tub area (via DIY Network).
