Our Designs Do Double Time: 6 Combination Projects for Design Inspiration

At Archadeck, we give you more. More expertise, more confidence and more of what you want to transform your outdoor space into the one-of-a-kind retreat you’ve been dreaming of.

We also give you infinitely more design choices because our designs do double time! Want a deck and a patio? We can do that! How about a sunroom with a deck? We can do that, too! With other contractors, your choices are often limited by their capabilities. Or you may have to hire more than one to fully execute your dream design. But not with Archadeck — we’re your one-call-does-it-all outdoor living experts.

Successful outdoor living design requires creative expertise, superior construction capabilities, and a commitment to listening to what you want and need from your new space. It’s a skillful combination our design experts have understood and employed for decades.

What outdoor living space are you dreaming of? Get inspired by taking a look at 6 combination projects that show off just how our designs do double time for you.

Nova Scotia, Canada

This elevated dynamic duo features a sunroom and deck designed to seamlessly blend with existing aesthetics and architectural lines, so it looks original to the home. Composite decking complements the dark gray exterior, and an iron and glass railing ensures the surrounding view comes through. Inside the sunroom, the rustic stone fireplace and vaulted wood ceiling are in a friendly competition for wow factor.

Austin, Texas

Here’s a combo that created a triple treat! This design has three distinct outdoor living areas: a covered patio, a multi-level patio, and a balcony off the home’s upper floor. Down below, the patio and walls utilize multiple colors and stone styles to highlight the home’s stone exterior — there’s even a surprise inset. Up above, the cozy balcony seating area features an iron railing with a curved design to add visual interest.

Akron, Ohio

Rustic attention to detail is the appeal for this covered porch and deck combination, from multi-color wood walls to the matching rain barrel. This porch and deck combo was carefully designed to appear original to the home. Composite decking extends beneath the covered porch area and open deck space for visual continuity. The deck’s railing creates additional seating while serving double duty as a safety feature and interesting design element.

Seattle, Washington

On this covered patio, the fireplace is a modern beauty that functions as a focal point and room divider, creating two outdoor living spaces under one roof. Design details enhance the oohs and aahs, including the natural wood beams and mantel, clean white tongue-in-groove ceiling, and black support posts. The patio itself is set in an artistic herringbone pattern with a border along the exterior and as definition between the living spaces.

Richmond, Virginia

From entertaining to everyday living, this patio-and-deck combo does it all with style. The tiered, multi-level composite deck is a real stunner, with cool design details and muted colors that complement the home’s exterior. Rounding out the space is a perfectly matched lower-level stone patio area with a curved retaining wall to soften its appearance and create a welcoming space ideal for planters and additional seating.

Chicago, Illinois

Talk about maximizing outdoor living space! This incredible design creates multiple living areas, including four seating areas plus outdoor dining. The pergola over one area of the multi-level patio visually defines the space while creating shade for sunny days. A built-in grill is conveniently located for easy access. And the composite deck features a raised bar-style rail that adds both fun and functionality for entertaining.
