Running out of Valentine’s Day ideas?
Sure, flowers are “nice.” Private gondola rides are probably pricey, not to mention hard to come by. And, as the say – with a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re going to get.
With dry, functional space below your deck – you know exactly what you’re going to get: an expanded living space that can be customized in almost infinite ways.
We think we hear Cupid’s arrow hitting the bullseye.
DEK Drain’s TOPSIDE panels make custom under deck roofing a snap. Our proprietary deck drainage system leaves plenty of space in the bay area between joists to allow for a finished ceiling to be installed underneath. From there, you take the reins – use this space for state-of-the-art storage or fall in love with a reimagined outdoor living area.
Here are just a few suggestions:
- Pave the way for excitement. For homes with a sizeable, flat area under their decks, a DIY paver patio could transform your newly functional space into the neighborhood hotspot this summer, complete with lawn furniture, barbecue grill (or hardscaped firepit), and maybe even an outdoor entertainment center. Depending on the number of accoutrements you decide to add, thicker pavers may be called for – and you will want to do you due diligence and contact your HOA to check on permitting and regulations prior to breaking ground.
- Create your own screening room: Whether you want a quiet place to read, nap, or just kick back and enjoy your outdoor view, adding simple screen walls will keep your newly dry under deck space free from bugs and other pests. DEK Drain’s TOPSIDE® systems allow for under deck roofing that can be equipped with outdoor fans, recessed lighting, speakers, and so much more, for a truly personalized private bungalow.
- Cook up something new: Year-round outdoor dining is all the rage. Indulge your inner chef with an outdoor kitchen, complete with stainless steel appliances, an outdoor refrigerator, sink and wet bar, and ample storage for your ingredients and tools of the trade.
- Join the jet set: Just imagine. After a long day at work, or a particularly manic day of parenting, you can let your anxieties and stresses float away on bubbles, as you settle into your new hot tub or jacuzzi in a private space custom tailored to your liking.
Newly functional and dry space below your deck not only helps to expand your living space, but by implementing any one of the previously mentioned modifications, you will ultimately increase the value of your home, as well.
