Adding a deck to your home is an exciting project all in itself, but the experts from Diamond Decks offer some great advice to get more use out of your living space. Outdoor fire pits, fireplaces, and LED lighting are great additions to any deck. When summer cools off, you need other ways to heat up your outdoor entertaining area. The designers at Diamond Decks are pros when it comes to getting the most from your outdoor living space.
Install Outdoor Lighting
You can easily extend the time you spend outside on your deck by installing LED lighting. You can have lights installed at the top or bottom of the deck railing for a soft glow that not only adds a decorative touch to your deck, but doubles as a safety feature. Outdoor lighting doesn’t need to be as bright as lighting indoors—use it to illuminate stairs, railings, and the deck’s edge to for extra protection and safety.
Stone-Faced Outdoor Fireplaces
Turn up the heat on your outdoor entertaining area with an outdoor fireplace. Fireplaces enhance your outdoor living space by offering heat and even a place to cook when entertaining outside. Many decks are neglected during colder months because homeowners don’t add a heated feature to their deck or patio. A stone-faced fireplace with a hearth adds warmth and extra seating for guests. Work with the designers at Diamond Decks to create a fireplace that fits in seamlessly with your current décor.
Outdoor Fire Pits
If you are looking for an alternative to an outdoor fireplace, a fire pit has similar features but is a fraction of the cost. Fire pits are great because they can be constructed in a variety of shapes and sizes. You can custom build a fire pit to meet any budget. They are a great way to extend your living space even further and enjoy the outdoors though the fall.
