We are often asked for deck plans or deck designs for various backyards in the greater Charlotte, NC market. Our deck plans have been developed over the past 27 years and take many things into consideration.
Decks overlooking water:
A deck plan to overlook water whether it’s Lake Norman, Lake Wylie, Overlook Mountain, or simply a pool is all about the rail! When we put together a deck plan that have a scenic overlook, we want to minimize the line of sight obstacles so as to maximize the view. This can be done through either glass rail, cable rail, thin metal, and so forth. A great way to to maximize the view from the inside of your home is to lower the deck level so it does not osbcure the view from inside the house.
Large Decks for maximum entertaining:
While multi-level decks are beautiful and visually appealing, a functional deck design to maximize space means keeping the entire or most of the deck on one level. This way you can easily arrange furniture, grills and smokers, accessories, and so forth without worrying about a step-down. If you want a small private area for an intimate gathering while all the same time having a lot of space to entertain, building an octagonal off-shoot with it’s own benching is a great touch or perhaps a 10’x10′ recessed area off to one side will do the trick.
Aesthetically Pleasing Decks:
Curves and clipped corners really add to the visual appeal of a deck. Knowing where to place them so you do not cut down on a lot of your square footage is key and consulting a design professional. Here is where multi-level decks really make sense. You can also utilize multiple colors with picture frame borders and decorative insets that really differentiate your deck from any other! We love to design unique decks and have a showroom to show off the options at 2311 Village Lake Drive in Charlotte, NC 28212.
