Deck Styles for Your Home

Attached Deck

An attached deck is added directly to the back of your house and is more affordable to install than a freestanding deck. It can be designed to match the style of your home. 

Your home’s framing may need to be reinforced to support the weight of an attached deck. An attached deck is not usually suitable with a sloping yard.

Detached Deck

A detached deck is supported by posts that are set into the ground, which can give the appearance of a floating deck. This open design allows you to enjoy your outdoor space and works great in homes with larger yards.

Entryway Deck

An entryway deck can add some extra living space to your home. Entryway decks are attached to the front of your home. They are generally smaller but add space to the front of your home that you can use to enhance the entryway or add a small dining space.

Multi-Tier Deck

A multi-tier deck has multiple decks on top of each other. A multi-tier deck is a great option if you want to have various defined spaces. 

For example, you can create a space for a hot tub, an area for dining, another for relaxing, and one for cooking. A multi-tier deck also works really well if you have a sloped yard and want to maximize your space. This is a more complex style of deck to build, but it can be stunning when complete.

Rooftop Deck

If you have a flat roof, you can install a rooftop deck. A rooftop deck is a great way to add some outdoor living space, even if you don’t have a very big piece of property. This type of deck requires the right style of home.

High-Rise Deck

If you have a two-story or taller home, a high-rise deck can be added to your home, allowing you to enjoy the view around your space. With a high-rise deck, you can also create an under deck, getting two outdoor spaces in one.

Side-Yard Deck

A side-yard deck extends onto your side yard. They often have stairs that lead from your house and the deck down to the yard, making it easier to access.

Swimming Pool Deck

If you have a swimming pool, we can help install a deck around the pool. A wood or composite deck can be installed around an in-ground deck or an above-ground deck around the pool.

Wraparound Deck

If you have a lot of space around your home, a wraparound deck can be a great way to optimize that space. A wraparound space can provide you with lots of seating and space to enjoy the outdoors.

Factors That Impact Deck Styles

When figuring out what type of deck style you should use for your home, there are a few different factors to consider.

Home Architecture

Your deck style should complement your home. It should match the size, shape, and aesthetic of your home. Colorado Lumber Crafts considers the style of your home when creating a custom deck design.


The amount of space that you have on your property and around your home will greatly impact the style of deck you can add to your home. 

Additionally, the slope of your yard will impact the style of deck your property can support. If you have trees or other objects you want to build a deck around, our custom deck design will take that into consideration as well.


What you want to use your deck for will impact its overall style. That is why it is important to consider how you want to use the space to design a deck that meets your needs.
