7 Types of Deck to Inspire your New Project

If you’re still in the brainstorming phase of a new deck project, then you’re going to have a lot of different decking options available. Of course, you may be limited by the amount of space you have available, or the existing shape of your house, but you always have a chance to be creative with your new project. Whether you’re looking to build a new pool deck, a screen porch, or even a stunning multi-level deck, then we have something for you. Below we dive into seven different types of wood decks to inspire you in creating the deck of your dreams.


  1. Multi-Level Deck

Multi-level decks are great if you’re looking to add additional space to your deck. This can be a continuation from your current deck, or an entirely new project. Multi-level decks are typically still connected. So, if you have a party or large gathering, guests on each level will still be able to communicative with each other.


  1. Gazebos

If you’re looking to build an entirely separate getaway that’s not attached to your home, then you may want to consider building a gazebo. Gazebos are a great way to build a peaceful oasis where you or guests can relax and unwind. Gazebos typically have roofs and thatched sides, so you can still enjoy the beauty of your backyard or landscape.


  1. Pool Deck

If you’re looking to transform the existing space around your pool, then you may want to build a pool deck. Pool deck’s can help to add a touch of beauty to your pool, and give guests a place to relax when they’re not swimming.


  1. Screen Porch

If you live in a hot and humid climate that gets its fair share on insects, then having a screen porch could be the solution you’ve been looking for. Screen porches let you enjoy the outdoors without having to put up with the nuisance of bugs and insects.


  1. Open-Air Porches

Open-air porches used to be a mainstay of older homes. But, nowadays they aren’t as common, especially since the advent of air conditioning. But, if you’re looking for a way to enjoy the summer breeze while seeking shelter from the sun, then an open-air porch might be just what you’re after. Open-air porches can be attached to the front or back of the home, or even exist standalone, similar to a gazebo.


  1. Pergolas

Pergolas are often built for style and decor, as opposed to sun or insect protection. But, they truly can complete a space, if you have a BBQ area, a separate hot tub, or even an outdoor dining setup.

Pergolas typically have thatched open roofs, and are sometimes covered in plants such as ivy to give them a more natural feel.


  1. Curved Deck

If you have a small space and you need to make the most out of the minimal space you’re given, then you could install a curved deck.Curved decks are more modern and can add creative flair to your modern home. To built a curved deck the boards are typically cut, or heated and molded into a custom shape.


No wood deck would be complete without solid wood decking material. We hope you consider Jordan Lumber to help support you in building your new dream deck.
