3 Aspects of Deck Design to Consider

A great deck design brought to life with high-quality construction adds immense value to any property.

Decks are a popular hardscape feature that many homeowners love to incorporate when they can. A great deck design brought to life with high-quality construction adds immense value to any property. Honeysuckle Nursery & Design loves working with residential clients to create a unique and timeless deck design for their homes. There’s plenty to consider when developing a deck design for each project, and most of it comes down to planning a design that will fulfill your outdoor living purposes while complementing the aesthetics of your home structure. Here, we break down three aspects our team can help you consider regarding your new deck.


Typically, the desired size of your deck design largely dictates the potential price tag of the whole project. This is even before you get into different customizations or the materials you would use to build the deck. Therefore, it may be best to start with thinking about a realistic size or available space you would need to truly enjoy how you plan to use your new deck feature. Do you plan to hold intimate gatherings or relax in an outdoor oasis most of the time? A smaller sized deck may do. If you envision a place to host larger parties and barbecues, you may need a larger deck. You could also factor in the available outdoor space you have from the rest of your yard or patio.


Similar to the size consideration, the scale of your deck design is important as well. Mainly, you need to think about how the new feature will measure up against the size of the rest of your home. A too-small deck for the size of your house may seem out of place. On the other hand, a too-large deck with excessive square footage can distract from your house’s outward appearance. A good rule of thumb to follow is scaling your new deck to no more than the square footage of the biggest room in your home. You can consult our professional designers and builders for more assistance.


Today’s deck designs are more than a basic square or rectangle. Shapes can take on several more edges and angles, not to mention even rounded sides. Another aspect of a deck’s shape to consider is being multi-leveled. Each level could cater to a different purpose, such as one for dining and one for lounging, one for adults and another more for younger family members, etc. Multi-level decks could connect to a home’s patio or give better access to the backyard pool.
