Composite Decking with Level Changes by Archadeck

Decks are a fabulous space for outdoor living and a perfect place to entertain.  But how you want to use your deck will determine how to build your deck.  Deck design is everything!

There are five basic deck types:  platform deck, raised deck, two-story deck, multi level deck and free-standing deck.

Today, let’s focus on the multi level deck design.

Building a deck with multiple levels adds architectural interest, provides space for various outdoor ‘rooms’, bridges the gap between home and yard, accentuating a backyard view.

Archadeck can create deck spaces for specific purposes by:

  • adding small steps for minor level changes
  • varying the orientation of deck boards for visual definition
  • including privacy rail or lattice for intimate nooks
  • building around the existing trees to maintain natural shade
  • designing staircases for large level transitions and logical traffic flow

Other deck ideas to consider include:

  • decorative deck railings and balusters for color contrast
  • matching deck planters for flowers or plants to polish the edges
  • built-in, matching benches for extra seating
  • comfortable outdoor furniture for coziness
  • low voltage post top lights or solar lighting for ambience and safety
