Now that the sun is finally shining, you can enjoy spending time outdoors. If you have a deck that’s old and dated and needs some revamping, it’s the perfect time to make some changes. Updating or adding new features to your deck and fence can improve the look and feel of your yard, even increasing the value of your home. Here are some deck and fence features to improve the curb appeal of your home, from Highlander Construction LTD in Calgary.
Add a pergola to your deck
Need some shade over your deck? Consider building a pergola! It not only gives you the shade you need but makes the deck feel like an additional living space. It can be built with the same wood as your deck in order to match. This way, on those hot summer days, you can relax comfortably in the shade and still enjoy your deck.
Add wooden accents to your fence
There’s nothing wrong with a plain-looking fence: it gets the job done. However, if you’re looking for something extra to bring your yard to the next level, consider adding wooden accents. For instance, if your fence has a gate, put posts alongside it, or have a piece of wood extending above the gate to make the entrance grander. Something as simple as the added wood changes the look of your yard in an easy way.
Put decorative railing around your deck
Depending on the height or style of your deck, you may or may not already have a railing around it. If you don’t, it may be a feature worth considering. It not only adds an extra level of safety and privacy but gives you the ability to decorate. You could attach lighting, plants, or anything you want to make the space your own.
Add to the stairs on your deck
Stairs don’t have to exist purely for their function. One way to change the look of the stairs is by adding built-in planters along the sides. It gives you the chance to add pops of color to your deck to cut through all the wood. You could also include a wooden railing with different details to give your deck a much-needed makeover.
