Make Your Deck the Perfect Entertaining Space

Our Top Cut team really loves designing and building beautiful decks for our friends and neighbors. And once your deck is all built all that’s left to do is outfit it in a way that creates your ideal space. If you want some suggestions for what to start with when dressing up your deck, we have a few for you!

Outdoor Furniture

Invest in comfortable and stylish outdoor furniture to create a welcoming seating area. Consider options such as lounge chairs, sofas, dining sets, or hammocks, depending on your space and preferences. Choose weather-resistant materials and fabrics that can withstand outdoor conditions.

Cushions and Pillows

Cushions and pillows can be a great addition to your outdoor furniture. They can add color, comfort, and personality all at once. Opt for vibrant or patterned cushions that complement your deck's aesthetic. Don't forget to choose outdoor-specific materials that are resistant to fading and moisture.

Shade Solutions

Provide shade and protection from the sun by incorporating umbrellas, awnings, or shade sails. These additions not only offer relief from direct sunlight but also contribute to the visual appeal of the deck.

Outdoor Rugs

Define and anchor your deck space with an outdoor rug. Rugs can add texture, color, and a cozy feel to the area. Look for rugs made from durable materials designed for outdoor use, as they will withstand exposure to the elements.


Install outdoor lighting to create a warm and inviting ambiance on your deck. Consider options such as string lights, lanterns, or solar-powered pathway lights. Lighting can extend your outdoor enjoyment into the evening hours while adding a touch of charm.

Potted Plants and Greenery

Incorporate potted plants, flowers, and greenery to bring life and freshness to your deck. Hanging plants, vertical gardens, or herb gardens can be great additions to maximize space.

Outdoor Kitchen or Barbecue Area

If you enjoy cooking and entertaining outdoors, consider incorporating an outdoor kitchen or barbecue area on your deck. Install a grill, countertop space, and storage to create a functional and convenient cooking area.

Entertainment Features

Make your deck a gathering place by adding entertainment features such as a sound system, outdoor speakers, or a weatherproof television. These additions can enhance the enjoyment of your outdoor space for social gatherings or relaxation.

Remember to consider your deck's size, layout, and the local climate when implementing these suggestions. Regular maintenance and cleaning of your deck will also help keep it looking its best throughout the summer season. We hope you enjoy your new deck!
