Deck Add-On Ideas

Deck Add-On Ideas

Attaching a deck on your home is a great way to expand your living space. When building your deck, there are endless design choices to make. Putting personal touches into your deck space will make it tailor-made for you and your family. Here are some deck add-on ideas, from Elite Decking in Edmonton.

A shade shelter or roofed area

Building a shade shelter or roofed area as a part of your deck is great for summer. It’ll protect you from the sun or the rain, and you’ll be able to use the deck more. This will add more style to the deck as opposed to a patio table and umbrella that may or may not provide enough shade. Most people choose a pergola for their decks, either with shade lattice or a solid roof.

Built-in planters

Adding built-in planters around your deck will give your deck a more relaxing feel and space to plant your favourite flowers or veggies. The environment will have pops of color all around, making the space feel more inviting. This can be done with the same material used to build the deck to keep the continuity and flow. These plants can also be built along the railings, or anywhere else you may choose.

Custom seating

Need more seating? Adding on benches as a part of your deck can be a great way to do that. Something you can do with the benches is to get cushions or pillows to spruce up the look of your deck, while still maintaining the continuity of it all. You can have storage space beneath built-in benches, for keeping your furniture cushions and other items.


If you’re looking for more privacy in your deck, put up a fence around a section of the deck. Not only that, but a fencing deck addition allows for more things to be hung, like lighting or plants. It can also be finished with different hardware to create a more rustic look, or ornaments to add your own personal touch. If you live in a neighbourhood where the homes are built close together, a privacy wall or fence on your deck is a nice option.

Built-in fireplace

Including a fireplace in your deck will provide a living space and focal point for you and your family to gather. You can do a few things with the addition of a fireplace. It can be built above, on the surface, or sunken further down. Fire tables are also a popular option if you want to be able to move the fireplace around or remove it from the deck for winter storage.
