23 Feb Outdoor Renovation Trends for Spring 2017
Now that spring is right around the corner it’s the perfect time to start thinking about your next outdoor home improvement project. Maybe the deck or patio of your Apex home needs some sprucing up before the summertime? These new outdoor renovation trends will make your back yard the best in the neighborhood!
Enjoy your Deck All Year Round
Adding heating and lighting elements to your deck or patio is a great way to extend the seasonality of your favorite spring and summer hangout. This year we are ditching the idea that decks and patios can only be enjoyed when it’s warm outside.
More and more people are starting to view their decks as an extension of their homes, as opposed to just a place to have a summer barbecue. Ceramic heaters are great for the outdoors and fire pits are becoming increasingly more popular, and would be a great addition to any home.
A traditional brown wooden deck is now officially considered “old school.” Grey is currently the new biggest color trend in decks and patios, and is expected to remain trendy for years to come. Due to its neutrality and versatility, grey is a great color choice. It has also proven to be well wearing and long lasting.
Composite decking is a great way to go if you’re considering going grey with your deck this year. They withstand the elements a lot better and will give you much more longevity than a wooden deck will. One of our featured composite decking brands Timbertech, now offers eight different shades of grey.
Rooftop decks have been popular in urban areas for quite a while, but they are expected to be trending even more this coming year. Wooden decks and patios are usually not ideal for urban areas because they are unable to withstand the climates and weather conditions without acquiring some wear and tear. Manufactures are now offering a wide variety of options for sustainable and easy to install rooftop decking.
