One of the best things about coming to The Board Store Home Improvements is having the ability to customize your La Crosse WI deck completely. Our team of passionate experts works with homeowners to design a deck that meets every individual need and every homeowner’s unique style.

We don’t believe in one-size-fits-all solutions. Your home is unique. Your deck should be, too. The size and layout of your deck can make a difference in your home’s appearance and the use that you get out of it.

It’s not a decision that should be made lightly, and there are multiple things that homeowners need to consider when working with a deck replacement specialist to build their unique product. We want to ensure that you love your new deck and that it is the perfect size and layout for your unique needs.

So, here are a few things that you need to consider while going through the process.


Consider The Size Of Your Home
While You Design Your Deck

It’s important to think about the size of your home and your yard when you are designing your custom-made deck. While going bigger may feel like the best option at first, it may not be the one that is perfect for you.

Usually, a deck should only take up about 25% of your yard space. After all, you don’t want to forego valuable acres for a deck that is too large, and stripping away from your yard can actually make your living space appear smaller. Instead, you want to leave some empty space that can be used for entertaining, gardening, or more.

To achieve this, consider building a deck that is longer in length than it is in width. This will leave more of your yard open and will create a beautiful visual for your home. Are you concerned that a deck that goes the length of your house may not be big enough? Consider adding multiple levels to give it more space.

You can also play around with your deck layout to make it appear larger and provide ample space for entertaining your friends and family.


Think About How You Would Use Your Deck

Are you someone who loves to host large gatherings? A deck is the perfect place for entertaining friends and family. Are you more of a homebody who likes to spend their time at home or with a close group of friends or loved ones? A deck is perfect for that, too.

Decks offer a beautiful outdoor space that is ideal for relaxation and entertaining. It’s important to know what you want to use your deck for when you are building it.

If you are looking forward to hosting gatherings on your La Crosse, WI deck, then you need to build something that can easily accommodate the people that you plan to have over. Not only do you need to think about the people, you need to think about the furniture, too.

If you plan on having a lot of people over to your home, you need to have a place for them to sit. That means buying new outdoor furniture and maybe even a dining space. Your deck should be able to accommodate your furniture easily and provide ample space for you to entertain your guests.

If you’re not into hosting large gatherings, then you might want to opt for a smaller space. This will create a welcoming and warm environment for you to relax and unwind by yourself or when hosting a small gathering.


Your Budget Can Help Determine
The Ideal Size Of Your Deck

As with any home improvement project, it’s important to consider what you want to spend or what you feel comfortable spending when designing the ideal deck for your home.

There are many things that can go into the cost of your deck, including the materials used, size, stairs, and more. You should never go into a home improvement project feeling uncomfortable or uncertain about the cost.
