8 Deck Trends for 2018

Jan 25, 2018 11:20:15 AM | Posted in Messages and News By Jaclyn Kueny

8 Deck Trends for 2018

Even with all of this snow on the ground, it’s time to start thinking about your next deck! Whether you are starting from scratch or adding a simple update, you have tons of options to consider. A deck can be a valuable addition to your home that provides you with years of enjoyment and relaxation. Before you start planning, here are some deck and outdoor trends for 2018.

1. MULTI-FUCTIONAL SPACE

Creating a multi-functional deck space increases longevity and use of your deck. Having a space under your deck that stays dry year round increases use and usable storage space. From creating a shaded patio space to storing your lawn mower, keeping the underside of your deck dry can be very beneficial. DecksDirect offers both the Trex RainEscape and Zip-Up UnderDeck drainage systems to keep the space under your deck dry for whatever you choose!

2. MIX AND MATCH

Mixing and matching of styles is going to be popular in 2018. Mixing rustic and modern, or classic and contemporary looks will add the perfect touch of style to your deck. Adding dark aluminum balusters to your wood railing is a simple upgrade to any classic look. You can even use Wild Hog railing with your Westbury Veranda aluminum railing for a unique look. You can mix and match with many of our different railings, just check out the Inspiration Gallery for ideas.

3. BULKY ACCENTS

Use bulky hardware accents to add a rustic decoration to all of your projects. We offer hardware from Simpson Strong-Tie and OZCO Ornamental. Whether your fastening a pergola, or simply decorating a door, you’re sure to make an impact with their big and striking styles.

4. LANDSCAPE LIGHTING

When planning your upgrades to your outdoor living space, don’t overlook the impact you can create by adding landscape lighting. You can frame your deck, walkways, gardens, water features, or any other area of your yard. Landscape lights come in low-voltage and solar-powered styles to enhance the functionality and beauty of your outdoor space.

5. AZEK PAVERS

AZEK Deck Pavers are a high-quality alternative to wood decking. They are composed of up to 95% recycled material and use a grid system for quick and easy installation. They can be used for patios and walkways, driveways, resurfacing decks, or even flat roofs. Five different colors can be combined in any pattern to bring new life to your yard.

6. POST CAP LIGHTS

Post cap lights are a simple way to add safety and ambiance to your deck. DecksDirect carries post cap lights that are either solar-powered or low-voltage. Solar lights create a dim, soft glow around the areas of your deck that receive a lot of sunlight, whereas low-voltage lights are excellent for control and consistency all night long.

7. DRINK RAILS

Attaching a drink rail to the top of your railing makes entertaining even easier. With either the Prestige Drink Rail Bracket or the Drink Rail Adapter for Westbury, you can add a complementary deck board to the top of your railing to increase function and appearance. Hold a drink with style by adding a drink rail.

8. EYE-CATCHING STRUCTURES

Bring your outdoor space to the next level with an eye-catching pavillion or pergola. Not only do they provide shade and beauty, DecksDirect also makes them easy to purchase through OZCO Project Kits and detailed instructions. All you need to add is the lumber!
