Spring cleaning is upon us, but for most people, that means the interior of their homes is getting a good scrub. Few people consider taking their spring cleaning to the deck – but a good makeover for your deck is a great way to welcome the warm weather. Shake off the winter blues and get your outdoor space ready for spring with these tips.
Start with a Good Spring Cleaning
Your deck or porch does not need to be cleaned as often as, say, your windows. But a regular power wash or scrub with a tough deck cleaning brush will keep your deck looking like new. The first step, after clearing the deck, is to sweep away debris and perform the wash. This is especially important first thing in the spring, because mold and mildew tend to build up over the winter.
Another great benefit of cleaning your deck so thoroughly is that less dirt and grass will be tracked into your home when you are grilling out for the spring and summer. Be sure to consider the material your deck is made of before you start cleaning. Some high quality materials need specific cleaners to protect the finish.
Focus on Comfort and Functionality
When giving your deck a spring makeover, the two most important things are that you feel comfortable in a space that suits your needs. Do you frequently entertain friends or family for outdoor fun? You may want to consider designing your space around a custom patio set, like the handcrafted Royal Social Adirondack Set for 4, which offers you plenty of space to stretch out in ergonomic comfort. Is your deck your oasis away from the world, where you can get some much needed alone time? Consider making a custom made Deluxe Lounge Chair the focal point.
Do not forget to consider what else your deck needs. The grill, your potted plants, storage for shoes or garden tools, and more may need to find homes on your deck.
Do Not Be Afraid to Bring Inside Outside
So many people think of their deck as an extension of their yard, rather than as an extension of their home. Make your deck feel like more living space by bringing the same colors and details you have throughout your house to the deck. Think of this space as an extra den, and consider what you would need in a room like that. Patterned rugs and throw pillows are perfect if you have a covered deck, or try water-resistant cushions and décor for homes where the weather is unpredictable.
If you spend a lot of time outdoors enjoying the ultimate comfort of your Royal Adirondack Chair, consider modernizing your deck. Add electricity for lighting, a ceiling fan for comfort, a built-in speaker system for music, a fire pit, or other modern amenities. This can take your deck from second-thought to a design feature of your home.
