Custom Decks that are Really Custom

There really isn’t any place better to relax and have fun with your friends than on a custom deck. You can enjoy yourself on any deck, but nothing is quite as exquisite as using a deck you customized for your own use. At Custom Deck Builders, we’ve helped lots of Maryland and Pennsylvania homeowners design and build custom decks over the years and wanted to talk about how you can design a custom deck that is truly custom.

Pick Any Decking Material Your Heart Desires

One of the most important decisions you’ll have to make when designing your new deck is what kind of decking material you’re going to use. From wood to metal to composites, there are a lot of great options, and it really comes down to what you prefer. If you truly want to customize your deck, you could mix and match different materials.

How Do You Plan on Using Your Deck?

When designing your deck, you should always try to think about how you plan on eventually using it. Do you plan on doing a lot of grilling? Want to sit around a fireplace with friends and family? Want to add a connected playset for your children to play on? However you plan on using your deck when it’s finished should influence what implements and options you choose when designing a new deck for your home.

Add a Deck Around Your Backyard Pool

If you have a pool in your backyard, then one way to truly customize your deck would be to have it wrap around the pool. You could also add a connecting bridge between your deck, and a deck on your pool, if the pool is farther away from your home. Constructing a deck around the pool is a great custom design idea.

A Few Other Custom Deck Ideas

If you have an idea you’d like to implement into your new custom deck, you can always consult with a professional deck builder to see if it’s feasible. This is your custom deck, so they should be trying to accommodate all of your wants and needs. If you’re having trouble thinking of design ideas, here are a few you could consider:


  • Add a hot tub to your deck.
  • Include a sandbox or play area under the deck.
  • Include kitchen appliances in your deck’s design.
  • Construct a bridge over a garden.
