As we look toward another brilliant spring and summer in beautiful Nebraska, homeowners naturally want to spend more time outdoors. What better way to embrace Lincoln’s natural beauty than by revamping your outdoor space with an all-new deck?

In 2024, there have been many developments in the world of deck design, and the exterior remodeling experts at Willet Construction Inc. can’t wait to share them with you here. Read on to discover what’s hot this summer so you can plan a deck remodel that makes a lasting impression.

Top Deck Trends for 2024

From colorful patterns and indoor-outdoor havens to comfortable seating and culinary spaces, plenty of interesting deck design trends have emerged in the new year. Here’s a breakdown of the top six deck trends for 2024:

Bold Colors & Patterns

While neutral colors have long dominated the remodeling world, 2024 has shifted away from bland, beige palettes to include bright, bold colors and playful patterns. From fetching florals to sleek stripes, staying on trend means decking out your outdoor spaces in dazzling displays of color and patterns.

Including bold colors and patterns in your deck won’t require fully replacing all your patio furniture and décor. Instead, spruce up your space with easy-to-change textiles, such as throw pillows or blankets. This will allow you to showcase your style in an easy and affordable way.

Seamless Transition from Indoor Spaces

One of the biggest trends in recent years is the desire to marry indoor and outdoor spaces. The goal is to make your deck or patio feel like a natural extension of your indoor environment. To achieve this, consider:

  • Choosing matching furniture and décor
  • Installing sliding glass doors with large windows that offer panoramic views
  • Matching the flooring inside your home to your outdoor area
  • Sticking to one color palette

Sustainable Materials

While neutral color palettes might be a thing of the past, natural materials and textures are still very much in style. Rattan, jute, stone, terracotta, and wood are all examples of sustainable materials that are having a major moment in the world of deck design.

Incorporating natural textures and finishes into your outdoor space adds warmth and character to your deck, making it an inviting place for friends and family. Pillows, throw blankets, outdoor rugs, planters, decorative baskets, and lighting are great for cost-effectively and seamlessly including organic materials in your space.

Outdoor Kitchens

Take your culinary skills to the great outdoors by adding an outdoor kitchen to your patio. Homeowners continue seeking ways to maximize time outside, and adding an outdoor kitchen is an excellent way to do that. When building your outdoor culinary space, consider including:

  • Built-in fireplaces
  • Custom pizza ovens
  • Large countertops
  • Smokers
  • Wine coolers

Comfortable Seating Areas

Say it with us: “No more plastic patio furniture.” In 2024, seating is all about maximizing comfort and functionality. Think plush, comfy outdoor couches, chairs, and sectionals with highly durable performance fabrics designed to withstand the outdoor elements. With that kind of setup in your backyard, your guests will want to stay well into the evening.

Enclosed & Covered Porches

Last but not least, partially enclosed or covered porches have gained in popularity as more homeowners look to create multi-season spaces. With nearly 30″ of rainfall in Lincoln, NE each year, local families are no strangers to inclement weather, and having an enclosed or covered porch can help them enjoy the great outdoors without worrying about getting wet. Some options to consider when creating your partially covered space include:

  • Glass panels
  • Pergolas
  • Roofing with curtains
  • Screened-in surroundings
