If you’re installing a new deck in the near future, then you understand that it takes a lot of planning. Your deck should have dimensions that work best for your property. It has to complement your home’s look, and it has to function the way that you want it to function. Another important aspect of your deck is that it has to be the appropriate size and height for your needs, and this takes plenty of thought. To help figure out the right deck height and size for your home, here are some thoughts you should be considering.
What Do You Want Your Deck to Include?
Your deck isn’t going to be an empty space outside of your home; there will be features you want to include, and the features you want will influence how big your deck will be in the end. Maybe you want an outdoor kitchen to be included. Perhaps you want to have a dining area. Some people elect to get fire features installed as well. Once you know everything that you want your deck to have, you can figure out how much space is needed to fit all of these features.
Is Your Deck at Ground Level Or Is It Elevated?
You can choose to install a deck either at ground level or on a higher floor of your home. For decks built at ground level, it will likely be connected either to a living space on the first floor, or it will be connected to your basement if you have one.
Elevated decks, on the other hand, will be constructed in a manner so that a door on a higher story of your house will be connected to it.
If you have a two-story deck, your deck height will be determined by how tall your home is. Your deck height should match the height of your home to ensure the deck and house connect to each other seamlessly. Working with a deck contractor can be beneficial in this situation to ensure the deck height is appropriate
