Design your deck for privacy & shade

Share this project

Don’t let direct sun on a hot day or unwelcome attention from neighbours keep you from enjoying your backyard deck. When planning the design and function of your deck, consider including solutions for privacy and shade. Often, these two work hand-in-hand. A raised deck often increases exposure to surrounding neighbours so it’s important to create a more intimate setting by adding privacy to your design.

Nuvo Iron’s adjustable louvers, pictured above, open and close allowing you to choose when you want extra shade or more privacy. If your neighbours overlook your yard, consider a pergola for privacy, which also doubles as sun protection.

A pergola or shade structure adds distinct charm to a deck and helps define the outdoor living space. By including privacy and shade in your overall deck design, you will be able to truly relax in your backyard and entertain your guests in comfort and peace.

If you have questions about how to include privacy and shade in your deck design, visit your local TIMBER MART and talk to one of our Deck Experts.
