Looking to make a statement with your new deck? Consider adding built-ins during your planning stage. They provide functionality to an outdoor space.
Built-ins are most often in the form of seating, storage, planters and even ponds. Seating is probably the most common deck built-in. A bench built along the perimeter of a deck is a good way to provide seating for a large group of people. Benches can be constructed with backs or without. They can also be designed with integrated storage boxes beneath making them a great place to store outdoor cushions.
If you need a lot of storage, consider building a full-length locker at one end of your deck. Planters add a beautiful garden feature to a deck and can cleverly provide privacy at the same time. A built-in planter can also break up a large deck into two spaces. Decks with custom built-in features can turn your outdoor space into something unique and extraordinary.
