What are the current trends in decks? Here’s what’s new in decks for 2022:

1. Outdoor Kitchens

Outdoor kitchens add functionality. No one wants to be indoors doing all the prep work while your family and friends gather outside. A great solution is to add an outdoor kitchen. You can prepare your specialty, socialize, and even enlist a helping hand or two.

2. Bars and Pizza Ovens–

Standing bars or pizza ovens are all the rage. Make your deck the go-to-place for a good time. Hosting a pizza night or cocktail hour is a terrific way to kick back and relax after a long day.

3.  Water Features

Add a water feature to create an atmosphere of serenity. Water provides a soothing backdrop. Relax in a comfortable chair, add a delightful book, and enjoy the peaceful sounds of your new water fountain.

4. Pergolas

Pergolas not only provide shade but add privacy from nearby neighbors. They also give you a great place to hang potted plants, grow creeping vines, and string twinkling lights.

5. Bold Colors & Patterns

Bright, bold colors and patterns are “in.” Be creative.   Make your deck more inviting by adding seat cushions and planters with stripes and plaids. Reds and blues. Bright colors are inviting and fun. Let your imagination lead you!

6.  Built-in Lighting –

Built-in LED lighting is convenient and functional. No need for those bright floodlights. Built-in LED lighting makes it easy to provide the right amount of light just where you need it. Trex and TimberTech composite decks offer built in lighting options.

7.  Fire Pits

Fire pits are also a popular choice. Cooler weather won’t force you indoors when you’ve got a cozy place to gather. You’ll be able to enjoy your deck far beyond the summer season. Warm-up by a cozy fire with a mug of cocoa. Or invite friends over for s’mores.
