7 Nashville Deck Features We're Drooling Over
(And would love to do for your next project!)
Feature #1 : Attached Slides
Yes we do these! This is a feature fit for HGTV. Slides and other playhouse accessories added ONTO a deck makeover has been popping up all over Nashville. We think there is nothing more awesome than a deck built for the adult AND the kid's entertainment!
Feature #2: Unique Railing Patterns
Who needs boring old railings when you can showcase your personality and taste with custom railings like these? Your deck and back yard truly are extensions of your space and can be designed as so: from artistic, to bohemian, to geometric, or modern (like the horizontal railing pictured below)- the possibilities are endless! *Note be sure materials are sustainable and treated for your location and lifestyle. Style doesn't mean to sacrifice quality!
Feature #3: Framed ‘Hog Panel’
The hog wire fence allows pieces of wire to be arranged together in crossing patterns while the wood is used only as the frame. This gives your bak yard space a more rustic, farm look and can be substituted for other cool metal alternatives. Here is a hog panel railing we recently built in Nashville:
Feature #4: Designs in the Deck Floor
Like the image below, you can use pattern changes with deck boards, and alternate colors to make your deck really pop. Designs in the floor board is a sure way to draw attention to your outdoor space.
Feature #5: Stain & Seal
Staining your deck wood and then sealing it to let the natural wood look take the lead. This is one style we love. Stain and seal allows the wood grain to show through, reminding you of the beautiful life this wood provided before it was hand-crafted into your outdoor dream space.
Feature #6: Multiple Levels
This is especially popular in Nashville as we are seeing less yard area and more of a need to make levels out of necessity. Decks that use multiple levels and transition into a hard scape patio are sure to facilitate all the activities! (There's so much room for activities!)
Feature #7: Fire Pits
Last but not least!! Decks with fire pits included in the space are less popular, but definitely worth checking out. In this next photo, you see an elevated fire pit area. I mean, come on! This is what dreams are made of.
Elevated, and offset spaces are super cool ways to make use of any unique or even awkward deck space. What's cool about this feature is that you can set it up to be used as gas or natural fire for a safe fun area to enjoy all year round. So dope.
There is no reason you should not be enjoying your deck and patio the way you always dreamed of. You deserve your HGTV back yard, deck, or patio makeover ... at local Nashville prices.
