Patios are a great place to gather with friends and family, especially during the summer months. They’re easily accessible for both young kids and older family members, offering a good space to relax even with no additional structures. As a result, adding a proper deck to part of your patio space can add considerable value to the look and function of your yard.
Breaking up a standard concrete patio with a raised deck provides an interesting visual break which can help increase the aesthetic draw and general curb appeal of your home should you ever decide to sell it. Multi-tier decks add a lot of visual flair to an area, and a similar effect can be achieved with just one well-constructed and well-placed deck. A few small details in the form of railings, board choice, and the occasional curved edge can really up the perceived value of the space as well.
While the size and design of a patio deck will have to depend on your budget and the space available, dividing a patio area up and raising part of it with a deck can also provide a separate place for activities and gatherings, which can be a sanity-saver if you have a large family or group of friends. With two levels, it makes it easy to give the adults an area to hang out in without blocking any younger children from view.
While any additions to the patio space will depend on both budget and the area available, adding a deck to the mix can be a great way to change up your outdoor space, add visual interest, and maybe build in some added value too.
