There are many small details that go into designing a deck. We would never expect you to come to the table knowing what you want precisely. However, having a general list of popular deck design ideas will give you a good jumpstart. Consider these gorgeous composite deck design possibilities:

Parting Boards

Parting boards are a great way to add an elegant design feature that replaces unsightly butt joints. They are popular for expansive decks.

Picture Framing

Picture framing on decks is a lovely accent around the exterior edges while affording you the opportunity to include an accent color to complement your composite decking color choice.

Diagonal Decking Pattern

Most of today’s decks will feature decking boards run in a diagonal pattern versus the traditional straight pattern. This not only looks more modern but gives the deck added strength.

Multiple Decking Patterns

When creating multi-level decks, using different decking patterns or running boards in different directions in each space creates a visual cue to separate the spaces. This is especially valuable to avoid trips when navigating from one level to the other and is also a subtle aesthetic upgrade.

Mix and Match Decking Materials or Colors

In today’s composite decking world, a great deal of design flair can be added by using multiple colors of decking in various patterns. You can also mix and match materials between composite decking, wood, vinyl, and hardwoods for further customization. These mix and match looks are popularly achieved in railing design.

Decorative Post Caps

An easy way to add a bit of elegance to your deck is using decorative post caps. They can be wood, composite, or vinyl and can even include deck lighting. With a variety of choices, you are sure to find one that fits your style.

Deck Lights

A deck with proper deck lighting is a sight to behold as the sun falls behind the mountain peaks. Nevertheless, more importantly, deck lighting ensures your deck is functional and safe after sunset, allowing you to spend more time in your new space.

Stair Design

There are many considerations when choosing your deck stair design. From placement to shape and materials, it is more complicated than you might think. Depending on the height of your deck, you may choose wide shallow stairs for extra seating while entertaining. You may choose a simple, functional set of wood stairs or a grand wide, flared corner staircase. You may even need two sets of stairs to make your yard more accessible. Our team of experts will help.

Deck Railing Design

Deck railings are one of the more difficult choices to make due to the plentiful variety of options. Traditional wood railings are still popular, but composite railings, aluminum railings, and cable railings are growing in popularity. If your entire deck is composite, choosing a low-maintenance railing is a sensible choice. Composite can look more traditional, whereas aluminum and cable can give you a very modern look. Once you choose your material, color is the next choice.

Black is most popular as it keeps your view unobstructed to the yard, but white can be a classic choice for that white picket fence feeling. While a more traditional look can be achieved by matching the railing to the color of the decking.

Curved Edges & Inlays

One of the coolest benefits of composite decking is the added design options we gain with the flexibility of the product. We can heat and bend boards to create one-of-a-kind curved edges and inlays to add a statement or focal point to your deck.
