How can I keep the chill off my Custom Deck?

The benefits of warm decks

It’s spring time and the perfect time to enjoy a spacious and great looking deck. Although the weather will warm up, there will be days and nights your home deck will feel a little chilly. You can warm up your chilly deck by adding heat sources to your deck.

There’s nothing more uncomfortable than sitting out on a freezing deck as you try to enjoy good food and conversations. One of the best ways you can add warmth to a chilly deck is to add an outdoor fireplace.

An outdoor fireplace can serve as a great focal point on your deck while providing extra warmth for deck users. You should think of your deck design as an unit that can stand alone or a home structure that’s part of the bigger picture.

Some popular deck features that are used for both warmth and better deck functionality are outdoor fireplaces and kitchens. Having an outdoor fireplace and kitchen is perfect for any homeowner that enjoys hosting parties and cooking outdoors. People can enjoy your cooking without shivering because the fireplace will be close by.

Your deck design can include a semi-deck cover to shield your guests from inclement weather while they keep warm by the fireside. If you are going to add a fireplace and cooking area to your deck, make sure you also have a grill, wet-bar and plenty of storage units to make your deck as comfortable and convenient as possible.

Brick and stone fireplaces best complement residential properties with decks. It is recommended that homeowners position outdoor fireplaces at a 45 degree angle to make sure the outdoor fireplace does not obscure any beautiful landscape views from the deck.

Once the fireplace is positioned appropriately,  you can furnish your deck with beautiful outdoor furniture.

If a fireplace is too extravagant for your taste, you can always buy a metal fire pit to serve as your deck focal point. With the metal fire pit, you can position your furniture around your fire pit and add plants in between tables and chairs for a stunning and comfy deck space.

With a simple and polished deck design, you will surely impress guests to your home, while keeping them warm and cozy on deck.
