A good pool deck design is functional, enhances your backyard, and transforms your pool into a complementing water feature.
Turn your backyard into the destination spot this summer with a pool and pool deck! Dip your toes into the water while the children play, do cannonballs into the pool, soak up some sun next to the water, or throw a spectacular outdoor party. A pool makes a great addition to any backyard, but it’s the pool deck or patio that really pulls it all together into one fantastic outdoor living space. Here are a few of our favorite pool deck design ideas with options ranging from small to expansive. When you work with a custom design and build firm like Archadeck of Chicagoland, you have the opportunity to create a deck space that fits your family’s lifestyle.
Designing a deck that leads from your home to the pool is an excellent way to create multiple spaces for seating, dining, and sunbathing. This allows the adults to steal away to a quieter section of the deck while the kids splash in the pool or the space to throw an outdoor party with plenty of room to entertain.

Thinking of building a deck? From floating benches and solid board skirting, to outdoor fire places and stunning cable rails – here are some of our favorite deck design ideas!
Designing a deck isn’t always quite as easy as slapping a few boards together outside your back door. Just as homes come in all sorts of shapes, sizes, and with different design niches, so do decks. Here are a few deck designs we find many of our clients love.
Have a small space but want to make the most of it? Floating benches are a great option for decks that are low to grade. They provide extra seating for when you’re entertaining, but leave plenty of space for your daily needs, like grilling and dining. Adding a built-in flower box or two also saves space by creating a space for your favorite blooms. No need to set out extra flower pots!
Solid board skirting hides the framing beneath the deck while the pergola creates shade from the hot summer sun.
Aside from creating a stunning view, incorporating a fireplace into your deck design can extend the time you are able spend outside on your deck.
Give your framing an attractive look with AZEK low maintenance post wraps. This option gives low maintenance deck a nice, finished look.
Cable rails have a more contemporary look while opening the view.
Lattice walls are great for climbing flowers and vines and can offer a bit of privacy. Perfect for small decks!
Double the size of your outdoor living space by building a deck over your patio. The deck will provide shade for the patio and the structural columns will give your space a regal look.
