How Much Space Do I Need?

Size matters when it comes to outdoor living. While you may have grand plans for a multifunctional space that includes a deck, an outdoor kitchen, and perhaps a 3 season porch, the available area will dictate what’s feasible. Assess your yard's dimensions and consider how the new space will interact with your existing home and landscaping. The aim is to create a harmonious addition to your property, whether it's a screened porch for quiet evenings or a spacious deck for grand gatherings.

How Do I Want to Use the Space?

Functionality is key in any design. What's the primary purpose of your new outdoor area? Is it for intimate family dinners, large parties, or maybe a little bit of everything? The intended use significantly influences the design. A space meant for hosting large gatherings will have different needs than a tranquil retreat. Archadeck of Nashville designs spaces that are flexible yet targeted to your specific needs.

What Kind of Upkeep Will My New Space Require? Benefits of Choosing a Low-Maintenance Design

Depending on your chosen materials, maintaining an outdoor living space can be a breeze or a burden. Low-maintenance options like paver patios and synthetic decks not only look beautiful but also offer the luxury of minimal upkeep. They’re resistant to elements, staining, scratching, and best of all, rot and insects. The benefits of choosing a low-maintenance design can't be overstated—more time to enjoy your new space and less time spent on upkeep.
