6 of Our Favorite Decks on Houzz

Decks provide the perfect canvas for outdoor entertaining. You can make them as simple as you want, just complimenting your home’s exterior, or elaborate to really draw the attention of passersby.

At Select Home Exteriors, we love building gorgeous decks for our clients, giving them the space to host barbecues and watch kids jump into the backyard pool, while adding an extra element of style.

To help you get a jump start on your deck planning, we’ve found 6 of our favorite decks on Houzz, the source for all things home renovation:

Traditional Deck, Baltimore

This 20’x20’ covered deck space is like an outdoor living room! With ceiling fans, a built-in fireplace, and mounted TV, it’s a great spot for a family movie night, or a date night in. 

We love the barn doors to protect the tv when not in use. 

This area is just one part of a much larger deck concept, including dining area and built-in cooking area, making this a complete outdoor entertainment space!

BBQ Deck Project

This deck with built-in grill and smoker is every man’s dream! 

The rock facade throughout gives the cooking area a nice rustic feel, while tying together the bright white cover with the darker color of the floor. Simple corbels add some visual interest without being too busy.

Atlanta Backyard Retreat

The sleek lines of the concrete fire table and the floating cedar bench give this deck a clean, contemporary feel. The light brown cedar theme continues in the pergola over the dining area, as well as the privacy screen walls, providing a cohesive look throughout.

Traditional Deck – New York

This exotic Ipe wood deck with an unobstructed view of the garden is the perfect place to relax at the end of a long day. 

Our favorite part is the unique lines provided by a custom curved bench, made from laminated redwood.


Get the look and feel of a Japanese-inspired spa getaway with this deck! 

The wood is unfinished, allowing it to age and gray beautifully. With a concrete single block fire pit and a sunken-in round hot tub, you’ll never want to leave!

Trex Deck and Pergola

We are loving the contrast of the bright white pergola and posts with the dark composite flooring and black balusters throughout this outdoor kitchen. 

Two tiers break up the deck into separate “rooms” for cooking and dining. Lighting installed on the posts and the stairs ensure you can enjoy this space at all hours.
