Decks are a fantastic innovation in home design. Whether you live in a climate that lets you enjoy a deck year-round, or you cram a year of outdoor living into a few short months, you’ll find few people who don’t love the sense of relaxation and serenity you get from sitting on the deck.

Naturally, a superior patio door is a big part of creating a great deck experience. But there are many ways you can enhance your deck living. Better Homes and Gardens offers these 13 tips to make your deck more private. Our friends at Southern Living say that putting a buffet on your deck makes entertaining easier and more enjoyable.

If you’re still in the building phase, Sunset magazine offers 26 deck ideas to suit almost any home or lot. And on a more practical level, we’re intrigued by Rust-Oleum’s new Restore, an extra-thick coating product that you can apply to bring a tired deck back to life.

We’ll close this post with 35 dreamy decks from HGTV. Enjoy!
