Small Deck Decor Ideas

Looking to renovate your deck to take advantage of these lovely summer days? Check out these tips and you'll have your deck looking perfect in no time!

  1. Plants - First things first! One of the easiest deck upgrades is buying a few plants to spruce things up. Make sure to do a bit of research to get plants that will work with the amount of sunshine your deck receives. I killed a few snapdragons on my first go-around.

  2. Umbrella - Our south-facing deck had us feeling like ants under a magnifying glass on a summer afternoon. We bought the most phenomenal umbrella, built specifically to fit a small deck! It's basically a half-umbrella. Who knew this existed?

  3. Convertible Furniture - We love our new table - which is large enough to eat dinner on, but folds up and out of our way, if we aren't using it!

  4. New Wood - And, finally, if you have a deck as old as ours (that hadn't even been treated, as far as I could tell!) it might be time to replace the whole darned thing! Our "composite" is easier to clean, more durable, and doesn't cause splinters!
