There are numerous reasons for you to build a deck and some of those reasons may not have occurred to you because they seem so obvious. Still other reasons may not have even crossed your mind because you haven't thought that far ahead. You should carefully consider the reasons for wanting to build a deck, the functions it will serve and its purpose. Doing this will allow you to plan and design a deck that is inviting and functional as well.

Let’s look at some of the reasons for building a deck and then some of the facets of planning your deck. The first reasons that come to mind are fun, pleasure, beauty and adding additional living space.

Fun and Pleasure

Most people want a deck for enjoyment, to entertain guests and have family gatherings. A deck is also a place to relax, catch some rays if it’s in the sun part of the day, to read or sit quietly, or just enjoy being outdoors.
The best spot to plan your deck is where it will be convenient to get to from the kitchen for serving food, and so guest can have access to the restroom.
A deck is extremely versatile and can be used as a place to paint, sculpt, play games, sew, garden, do arts and crafts, listen to music and exercise. The possibilities of fun things you can do are endless.


A deck can add beauty to your home as an elegant addition or by creating a focal point in your yard. If your deck will be used to enhance the landscaping of the yard there are also other things to take into consideration like size, proportions, using unique angles to create a work of art. The deck can be built with several levels, around a pool or gardening area, close to fountains or waterfalls or even have these things incorporated into the design of your deck.
Decks can complement the architectural style of your home, add a special accent to your home, and be used to convert and unattractive area into a beautiful landscape feature.

Additional Living Space

A deck can add beneficial living space as it becomes an extension of your home, yet is generally less expensive than adding a conventional room. A deck also helps reduce the wear and tear on your homes interior by providing a unique outdoor means of entertainment and relaxation.
Your new deck can be built, decorated and furnished to take on the character of a family room or den and can be a haven for the entire family. Or it can be decorated to give the space a whole new feel and appearance.
You can have the whole deck open and outdoorsy or build a covering on part of it for days when there's a little rain but not cold enough to stay indoors.
On top of all these benefits, it also adds to the value of your home and can easily become a key point in a buyer's decision when choosing a new home.
