Often, a deck is connected to a home, but you can put it anywhere you like. Trex® decks will go wherever you want them. Placing a stand-alone deck adjacent to a pool can help maximize the space in your yard. Building a stand-alone deck over “problem areas” in your yard can turn a mud pit into a gorgeous outdoor space.

Maybe your home has several potential entrance points to your deck. Multi-level and/or wrap-around deck configurations work well if you want to be able to step onto the deck from upstairs and down-stairs. If you have a second-story deck, multiple staircases usually work best.

Sometimes your property will limit access to your deck to just one point off the house. So where should it be? Placing your deck off the kitchen area is a very popular option. This makes entertaining a manageable inside/outside affair. Some homeowners opt to build their deck off of a bedroom. For single-story decks, low trainsitional stairs can help make a deck feel more expansive.
