Bring indoors out to your deck by putting couch-like chairs and outdoor sofas, rugs and throw pillows for a relaxed living room feel.

Consider putting artisan and handmade items as personalized accents such as handmade rugs, handcrafted pots, and individually-dyed fabrics.

Include natural elements in your deck to make your deck feel like part of the woods.

Make your deck a green oasis. Spread out pots and planter boxes making your deck area a part of nature.

Geometric patterns can also be an interesting design as it adds vibrancy and color to your deck.

Don’t forget: while putting accents and furniture on your deck, make sure that there is just enough load to keep your deck safe. Avoid overloading.
