Custom Deck Features

A custom deck creates extra space to entertain, relax, and enjoy outdoor living.  Adding some of these below features allows you to personalize your space and enhance the functionality and aesthetics of your outdoor area.

Consider these options when you are planning your new, custom deck with Bigfoot Decks & More: 


Built-in seating

Instead of relying on separate outdoor furniture, consider integrating built-in seating into your deck. This can be in the form of benches, corner seating areas, or even built-in loungers. It saves space and provides a clean and seamless look.

Outdoor kitchen

If you enjoy cooking and entertaining outdoors, incorporating an outdoor kitchen into your deck design is a fantastic idea. Include features like a built-in grill, sink, countertop space, and storage cabinets to create a fully functional cooking area.

Fire pit or fireplace

Extend the usability of your deck into the cooler months by adding a fire pit or fireplace. It creates a cozy ambiance and provides warmth, allowing you to enjoy your outdoor space even on chilly evenings. 

Outdoor lighting

Enhance the atmosphere and functionality of your deck with well-designed outdoor lighting. Install recessed deck lights, post cap lights, string lights, or even integrated LED lighting in the stairs or railing to provide both safety and aesthetics.

Privacy screens

If your deck overlooks neighboring properties or a busy street, adding privacy screens can help create a more intimate and secluded space. Consider options like lattices, trellises, or vertical gardens to add both privacy and visual interest.

Hot tub or spa

For the ultimate relaxation experience, consider incorporating a hot tub or spa into your deck design. Ensure the deck structure is properly reinforced to support the weight and plumbing requirements of a hot tub.

Built-in planters

Integrate built-in planters into your deck to add greenery and a touch of nature. These can be incorporated into the railing, steps, or as standalone planter boxes, allowing you to showcase your favorite plants or even grow herbs for cooking.

Outdoor sound system

Set the mood and entertain guests with an integrated outdoor sound system. Install weather-resistant speakers strategically around the deck to provide high-quality audio for your outdoor gatherings.

Multi-level design

Create visual interest and optimize space utilization by designing a multi-level deck. Connect different levels with stairs or ramps, and allocate each level for different purposes such as dining, lounging, or a dedicated area for a specific activity.

Water features

Incorporating water features like fountains, ponds, or waterfalls into your deck design adds a soothing and serene element. The sound of running water creates a relaxing atmosphere and can help drown out noise from surrounding areas.
