How Can You Utilize the Space Under Your Deck?

Nov 16, 2016 | Decks


The space under your deck has a lot of room for customization based on your needs!

Raised decks are a fantastic way to maximize the utility of your backyard, especially if your home is located on a small property. Deck design is usually the focus when a project is commenced, and understandably so, but don’t neglect the potential for the patio under your deck! What are some of the best ways in Baltimore County to utilize the space under your deck?

Storage Shed

Storage space always seems to be at a premium for homeowners. Garages are popular as storage spaces, but you then give up a potential parking space for your car. Backyard sheds are another solution, but small properties sacrifice usable green space for storage when sheds are used. However, the open space under a raised deck is perfect for storage purposes. You don’t give up any space in your garage or your backyard this way!

Screened-In Porch

Commonly referred to as three season rooms, screened-in porches are closed off from the rest of your backyard with screens. You allow the fresh breeze from the outdoors into your room, but gain protection from bugs and rain. This allows the best of both the indoors and the outdoors.

Under Deck Dining Area

Another option is using the space under your deck as another area for entertaining your guests outdoors. One way to do this is by creating an outdoor dining area. The space under your deck can provide a level of protection from the elements, and you can connect the deck with the dining area using a set of stairs.

Conversation/Lounging Area

An outdoor lounging area is another great way to use the space beneath your deck. Add couches and chairs, and even a fireplace, to create a natural outdoor extension of your living room! This kind space is ideal for casual entertaining and simple day-to-day relaxation.
