You are here: Home / Creating Your Perfect Deck Design

With all the options out there, figuring out what kind of deck you want can be a little overwhelming. But there are several things you can do to make sure you end up with the perfect deck design for you! Start gathering ideas by looking at other decks and deciding what you like and don’t like about each. Then make note of any designs you really like. We won’t duplicate it exactly, but JRG Custom Decks can turn your inspiration into a design that works for your house and yard. Does your home have a particular style you want to carry on into the yard? Think about the styles you like in order to create a design that looks like you.

Factors to Consider

However, don’t forget to consider the more practical design aspects, like the size of your yard, the terrain, your budget, and the function you want your deck to serve. What will you primarily use your deck for? Do you have a pool that you want to put a large deck for sunbathing around? Or is a small deck with few chairs all you need? Take into consideration the size of your yard and house and how you want them to relate. Is your yard hilly or flat? Do you want your deck to come up to the back door, or would you like it to connect on multiple stories? How much of your yard do you want your deck to fill? Additionally, would you like a complex, multi-level deck, or a small, simple platform? It can be as extravagant or as simple as you like, depending on your tastes, needs, and budget.

Custom Deck Designs

JRG Custom Decks will help design a deck that works for any yard. Feel free to sketch out a few ideas you have, and we’ll be happy to give input and make suggestions. Try a few different designs, and don’t forget railings, stairs, or a gazebo if that’s something you might want! Don’t worry if you’re not an artist; these ideas are just to help you imagine what you want your future deck to look like. And if it’s still too overwhelming, our expert staff will be happy to listen to your ideas and sketch them up. We’ll create the perfect custom deck design for your family and yard. It’s our specialty!
