Deck Ideas for a Relaxing summer

It has been over a year since Covid hit and stay-at-home orders were placed. When that happened, many were opting to enjoy their summers outdoors, safely. As a result, the demand of creating the perfect outdoor living space is at an all time high. Companies, like Heartlands, are booking start dates for new projects out to early 2022. While waiting for that start date, or initial appointment, this is the perfect time to look at a few deck ideas below!

Flexible Open Deck Idea

This beautiful deck below is one of our favorite recent projects. It has many features, but most of all, it has plenty of open deck space. The owners stated that their deck was built at the perfect time since there’s so much room to properly social distance in the open air. There is a screen room area, which features a beautiful fireplace to keep them warm during chilly mornings and evenings. Couldn’t you picture yourself enjoying this space?

Cozy Summer Night Deck

Screen rooms are a very popular choice for Heartlands customers (we are known as The Screen Team®!). In this project, it also includes a fireplace, but features a nice open air deck to the side of it. to increase the flow between the screen room and open deck, the customers chose to have a retractable screen! In addition, the owners love grilling on their open air deck. It is the perfect spot to entertain, social distance, and make memories.
