Illuminating the Ambiance
For those evenings when you want to extend your outdoor experience, consider installing ambient lighting. String up some lights overhead with our Aluminum Post Extension and add a few lanterns to create a cozy, inviting atmosphere after sunset.

Built-In Seating and Hidden Storage
Maximize your deck's utility by incorporating built-in benches with concealed storage. This not only keeps your outdoor area clutter-free, but also offers comfortable seating for your guests.

Incorporating Overhead Features
Consider adding overhead elements like pergolas or an awning to your deck. These will provide shade and create natural “rooms” such as a dining area or cozy reading nook within your outdoor space.
