The Importance of Custom Components in a Custom Deck Design

At Archadeck of Columbus, we believe choosing a custom deck design is comparable to buying a new car. Not everyone wants a red car, but those who do really want to drive a red car. Some drivers want an engine with more horsepower, and some want a more powerful sound system. The possible combinations as you mix and match the available features are almost endless.

Like car buyers, homeowners choosing a new deck should be able to select the features important to them. The right deck for your home and your lifestyle – size, shape, materials, amenities – might not be the right deck for someone else.

Custom backyard deck with dining area

When we say Archadeck of Columbus custom designs and builds outdoor living spaces, we truly mean we customize each and every deck we build. Each deck is unique because homeowners are unique.

Our Specialty: Custom Deck Creations

Dining area with pergola on custom deck and patio

We’re proud of the many custom deck ideas we’ve incorporated into our Columbus-area deck designs. Let some of the ideas you see here inspire you as you begin to think about your new deck. For example, take a look at this project (above), for which Archadeck of Columbus Received the 2018 Archadeck Design Excellence Award Grand Prize. While there are many custom components at play in this award-winning project, notice the custom bar area we built right into the deck design. Yes, that’s a bar, with bar stool seating for six, at the edge of the deck overlooking the patio. You can tell these homeowners enjoy entertaining in their custom-designed outdoor living space.

The Right Custom Deck Railing Can Set the Tone

Custom hot tub deck

You haven’t seen custom deck railings until you’ve seen these. They illustrate how railings can play a large role in establishing a deck’s personality. This Westerville, OH, deck addition, so amazing it turns gray skies to blue, features white aluminum railing with glass infill panels. The combination of aluminum and glass creates a clean, sleek design. Glass infills in a railing offer the ultimate in unobstructed views!

Custom deck railing and balusters

Next, we have an amazing, unique railing design as part of a Delaware, OH, dull-to-dazzling deck-patio combination. The homeowners specifically requested a Craftsman style railing. We used contrasting materials – cedar and black aluminum – and spaced the posts and balusters in a pattern that is reminiscent of the Craftsman style. The unusual railing design adds character to the space, while TimberTech accent lights on the posts add ambiance and increase safety after dark.
