4 Fall Decking Retouches You Should Consider

Fall is a great time of year to work on decking, if you have an existing deck there are a lot of ways to enhance what you’ve got to make it that much more usable in the coming months and also to make your space more enjoyable and aesthetically pleasing.

Add a Heating Element

Your outdoor environment will eventually get chilly as Autumn approaches. Add an outdoor heater to extend your deck time even longer? Home improvement and lawn and garden stores sell a variety of patio heaters in a range of designs to fit every space, taste and need. A single, well-placed heater can provide enough warmth to keep your entire deck comfortable on a chilly fall evening. Need an additional source of warmth to supplement your patio heater? Looking for a bigger WOW factor, talk to us about outdoor fireplaces and kitchens!

Warm Up Your Decking Furniture

If you have deck furniture already, don’t forget to make it ready for the cooler weather with pillows, rugs, and cushions.  If you deck is feeling empty, adding seating options makes your deck more inviting and enjoyable for guests.

Light The Way

As summer winds down, days grow shorter. Adding lighting to your deck can help you enjoy fall evenings outdoors.  Outdoor Specialties offers many deck and outdoor lighting options, we can help you with stair lighting to make your deck safe or even something low key for ambiance.

Finishing Touches

Just having a deck adds value to your home, but you can easily make yours more appealing and enjoyable by adding some decorative touches. Post Caps, deck railings, and trim boards are fine touches that can really make your deck look polished this fall.

Lattice is another way to add interest to your deck, while creating privacy at the same time.

Fall is a wonderful time to put on a sweat shirt and hang out on your deck, make use of that space before the winter moves in.  If you need help choosing decking materials or any accessories for your outdoor living space, contact Outdoor Specialties, we are your outdoor experts when it comes to making the most out of your space and beautifying your homes exterior.
