Deck Designs & Ideas

It's time to dust off your inspiration cap and take a look at some of the most fabulous, functional decks you've ever seen. Start with our collection of 20 dreamy, real-life decks. Then move on to full tours of four distinct deck types: wraparound, a better builder's deck, a small-space sanctuary, and a rooftop retreat. Each will give you ideas for your own brand-new deck or get you thinking about how to revamp your existing deck space. You might not think there's potential for change in your existing yard or deck area, but our before-and-after deck makeovers will convince you otherwise. If you're not sure what makes one deck style different from the next, look to our rundown of the differences among five popular deck designs. With our explanations, you'll be able to find the one that best suits your day-to-day life. To jazz up your deck (and boost its practical side, too), try options such as built-in seating, curves, and more. If you're building a new deck but unsure how much it might cost, we have practical advice on budgeting and calculating joist spans. Plus, get a checklist of what you need to know before you buy a single piece of lumber.
