Combination Project by Archadeck – Deck, Pergola, Screened Porch, Open Porch

The trend to have an outdoor space that incorporates a combination of structures has become popular among St. Louis homeowners.  A ‘combination project’ is a trend with staying power.

And for good reason.

When a design includes a deck, screened porch and pergola, the space offers something for everyone.

For example, the design can include a deck area for sunning and a deck area for shade… a deck area for cooking and a deck area for eating.  And if your contractor includes a screened room attached to your deck, there’s an outdoor space that’s usable even if the weather’s not so favorable.

By combining an open deck with a shaded deck and a screened enclosure, folks can enjoy outdoor ambiance for extended periods of time, throughout the year.

This draw to ‘multi-functional’ designs is obvious:  usage is increased due to versatility, functionality and flexibility.

And with proper planning and construction, an outdoor structure, in triplet,  operates as one larger design to harmonize with the interior of your home and your backyard as well.

Knowledgeable and tenured deck contractors keep close tabs on trends in the outdoor living industry and are able to distinquish temporary fads — that quickly come and go — from logical design trends that won’t fade from the spotlight.
