10 Ways to Spruce Up a Deck; Outdoor Living Spaces and Interior Design

  1. Power Wash the Deck. Power washing is an easy way to clean up mildew and stains.  Spot cleaning and hosing off the deck may be all you need.
  2. Stain the Wood.  With hundreds of colors available, personalizing your deck is easy
  3. Paint the Deck.  Recently, there seems to be a flood of products for decks.  Paints offer a rainbow of color options
  4. Skirt.  Add a decorative skirt to hide the dead space below the deck
  5. Pergola.  Add a decorative pergola or canopy
  6. String Lights.  You see them everywhere these days.  If you are not handy, call Ampa Creative Home for Handyman services and carpenters
  7. Benches.  Built into the existing rail system, consider adding a wood bench
  8. Curtains and privacy blinds.  These are easy additions
  9. Furniture, potted plants, and more
  10. Add a swing. Purchase a Made in the USA white oak porch swing from Artisans Market USA
