If you are planning on building a new deck or replacing an old one, you have a ton of designs that you could bring to life. Ideally, the deck will adhere to the house and the land, proportionate and fulfilling its purposes. A multi-level deck is appropriate if you want to achieve several goals. Here’s how to use multi-level decks to your advantage to fulfill your outdoor living space dreams.
Using Multi-Level Decks to Achieve:
Separate Outdoor Living Zones
Sinking or rising one part of the floor instantly creates two different spaces. Even a single step can completely change a deck’s layout. Naturally, the deck’s levels will cascade from the back door to the backyard. If you want to make clear distinctions between different zones, creating multiple levels is a great way to do it.
Cozier Outdoor Living Spaces
Furniture arrangement can create smaller, cozier spaces on a deck, but creating multiple levels also achieves this. You could have one level for sitting, one for dining and grilling, or another for relaxing in the hot tub. Each platform instantly gives you a smaller and therefore cozier space to work with.
Easy Traffic Flow to the Backyard
Multiple deck levels make it easier for people to go from the back door to the backyard, especially if the deck has a high elevation. You can make the most of the space with multiple levels leading to the bottom. In other cases, a second, lower level can enable you to use cascading stairs to give you the biggest range for accessing the backyard.
Connect Upstairs to Downstairs
Does your house design call for an upper deck and a lower deck? We have experience building “double-decker” decks, with one story directly above the other, connected by deck stairs. For homes with this framework, multi-level decks only make sense.
