If you have limited space and want to keep things simple, go for a small wooden deck that extends on your garden area. Include a fireplace and two comfortable sofa seats to cosy up space for coming winter months.

5. Standout Deck Stairs



If you live nearby a water source, one way to go about designing the deck is to add curved stairs and stone surface landings to provide a generous view of the nearby water. Add a rustic setting and chunky wooden railings to create a space that feels an extension of the home.
