3 Deck Design Tips for Your Home Construction, Ewa, Hawaii

If you're planning new home construction, take the time to add features you'll enjoy that will also increase the value of your home. One effective option, especially in beautiful Hawaii, is to include a deck where you can enjoy the fresh air. Here are a few factors to keep in mind when creating the design.

How to Design a Deck for Your Home Construction

1. Tailor the Design to Your Layout

As you plan your deck, don't just add it onto the side of your home. Instead, place the deck where it will work with the existing elements. For example, a deck that wraps around the trees in your yard will let you enjoy the shade. You can also tuck a deck into the corner of an L-shaped house. Or have a deck entirely separate from the house from which you can better enjoy the view of your beautiful yard.

2. Add Features You'll Use

Home ConstructionThink about how you like to use your outdoor space or how you wish you could use it, and add features accordingly. If you love to grill, adding a brick or stone barbecue to your deck is a must. If you like to host evening parties, a deck with built-in seating will accommodate your guests. For sitting outside come rain or shine, you'll want a covered deck.

3. Individualize Your Style

A deck doesn't have to be just a squared-off structure in dull wood. Talk to your general contractor about the unique touches they can add. You might opt for a curved layout, or a multi-level stepped deck. Combining materials and colors is also an option for a more interesting visual effect.
