How Can I Update My Deck Design with a Small Budget?
Taking your deck from dull to dramatic can be as simple as integrating colors, materials, furnishings, and plantings that smooth the transition from indoors to out.
You can create a simple, one–level deck where family members can sit and take in nature's many benefits, or go the other direction and build an exotic outdoor space, one that includes an outdoor kitchen with grill, granite bar, and outdoor stereo system. The only limits are your imagination, budget, and what is allowable in your neighborhood. If you’re on a tight budget, keep these helpful hints in mind from the deck repair experts at A1 Handyman.
• Expanding the deck - If you are thinking bigger is better, don’t shy away from shopping around for materials. Check online message boards for builders near you who have leftover supplies they are willing to part with for a fraction of the retail price. Some might even be available for free. Lightly used wood can be refinished as well, offering great value for those looking for deck repairs and renovations.
• Install A Bench Border - If your deck is low enough not to require a railing, build a bench around the perimeter to provide seating and a sense of enclosure.
• Add some new seating - If you don’t think you have the budget to expand the deck, try to update the space you already have. Adding wooden benches into the structure of the deck could give the space a brand-new look. However, make sure you match the stain and wood type of the new benches to the existing deck. Call on the professionals at A1 Handyman to make those benches you’ve always wanted.
• A fresh coat does wonders - If your deck isn’t giving the impression you want, a new stain and sealant could be the most cost-effective way to update it. A1 Handyman knows a new stain can make all the difference in the look of your deck, and our painting and staining crew are experienced at helping with this job.
