Deck Makeover Ideas for Your Home
Friday, July 06, 2012
Below are a few ideas for revitalizaing a home's deck from us here at Lakeside Painting.
Pick a New Stain
For those who like the look of the wood's grain, a new stain will do the trick. The old one must be removed and the deck cleaned before applying the new stain. Think about picking different type of stain this time. It will definitely spruce the deck's appearance up.
Instead of a stain, think about using one solid color or a combination of colors. Lighter, cooler colors look great, such as a light blue on the wood deck and a white on the railing or fence.
Paint Old Wood Furniture
For those homeowners who already have wood deck furniture but feel that the look is dated, a great option is to paint the outdoor furniture a new color. A bright red always looks nice, or a light blue, which will looks especially great in the summer months.
Use Plants and Flowers as Decoration
Once the deck and its furntire (whether wood or metal) has been painted or stained, another great idea is to put potted plants and flowers around the deck. And if the deck has pillars and a struture around it (like a pergola), think of hanging some plants. The look will be instantly enhanced with new color and foliage.
