Spring is well and truly here, and soon enough summer will be in full swing! So now is the perfect time to get those small renovations underway. The team at m.ewaldBUILDING have extensive experience with decks and verandahs, in particular, ones that are featured on a classic Queenslander home. Whether you’re needing to freshen up your current deck or wanting to expand with a new one, m.ewaldBUILDING can guide you through the process.
Adding a deck to your home is a great way of extending your living area without compromising on land space. When adding onto your home, you want to ensure that the extension is going to be usable space, there’s no point in creating something if it isn’t practical. If you’re a fan of entertaining, an outdoor kitchen could be a way of optimising this extra space. Blur the line between indoors and outdoors with an outdoor kitchen, plus it allows you to cook without the fear of missing out. When it comes to decks and extensions, it’s necessary to think of all the components, such as lighting and shade. How practical is the deck going to be at any time of day or night? An open deck might allow you to catch the sunshine’s rays, but if it rains, you won’t be able to use the space, so consider putting outdoor blinds on to prevent this. These details are all things that the team at m.ewaldBUILDING can help you with.
Create dimension in your yard with low-to-ground decking. Using multiple decks can create levels throughout your yard, creating a sense of space. More and more backyards are being thoughtfully designed, with a focus on practicality and aesthetic appeal. You want a deck to work well with your space, so when you have a home and yard that simply doesn’t work with a classic deck this low option can be a good solution. Low-to-ground decks are also much quicker and easier to build than a classic deck, so if you’re chasing a quick reno before summertime, then a low deck could be a great option.
Are your backyard florals in full bloom but you just don’t have the appropriate area to enjoy them? Perhaps a small garden deck can become your ‘viewing platform’. Sit back in a deck chair and inhale the sweet smell of roses and enjoy the vibrant yellow sunflowers from the comfort of your yard. A garden deck makes for a perfect nook for reading or even a high tea.
Gazebos and Pool Decks
Summer days mean lounging by the pool and soaking up the sun rays, but also remembering to be sun smart. This is where a gazebo or pool deck comes in handy. No need to hide inside from the sun when you can stay out by the pool, lounging underneath the gazebo. Give your backyard resort vibes with a luxurious gazebo, filled with lounge chairs and cushions, perfect for relaxing on a warm afternoon after a dip in the pool.
