Make Your Deck Creative and Innovative

Many people neglect the usefulness of their roof or other elevated areas of the home. If you have limited patio space outside, look above you and be bold. The possibilities are virtually endless where elevated decks are concerned. You can choose from a variety of materials and looks. Your friends and neighbors will surely be jealous at the result, and you will be enjoying many relaxing afternoons and evenings looking over the expanse of your property.

Consider Your Roof

Many people view their roof simply as a structure that supports the home and protects the inside from the elements. While this is certainly a valuable component, there is so much more that you can do with this part of the home. If a section of your roof is flat, you have valuable space that could be turned into something useful. The structure of the home is already solid enough to support a deck being installed up there. This is an area where you can entertain and relax. Just think of the parties and functions you can throw from you very own deck that is elevated to give your family and guests a truly unique view of the area.

There Are Many Surfaces to Choose From

When you go install a deck, keep in mind that there are a variety of surfaces that you can choose from. This speaks to your personality. You can go for a marble tile look the replicates what you find by a swimming pool, or go with a more traditional wood floor appearance. The only parameter that you have is that you want to ensure your choice of flooring is of the non-slip variety in order to protect you in the event of water. Outdoor flooring is designed to hold up well to the elements, so dare to be different here. Choose something that really highlights the overall look and feel of your property.

Install Your Own or Have the Professionals Come Out

Many people today enjoy a good do it yourself project. There are companies that will provide you with everything you need, including the equipment, to install your own deck. If you would rather not do it on your own, there are capable and professional technicians in your area with a great deal of experience that would be glad to get you set up in no time at all.

Designer Drains

A shower drain is not an item that many people give a lot of their attention. It is the round silver piece that blocks hair and other debris from going down the drain into the pipes. Plumbers and homeowners worship this tiny piece of metal. It prevents many problems that can occur down the road. It usually only has to satisfy two generic needs: It has to be sturdy enough to do proper blocking, and it must be porous enough to still allow water to drain sufficiently.

DesignerDrains.com has elevated the status of this little piece of metal by giving it some appealing design features. They are square or round and made from reclaimed stainless steel. The designs are classic or geometric, or they are patterns from nature, architecture, art history or the oceans.

The scrolls design, which resembles a sprawling sun with curlicue rays, is a popular design. With a small center hole, the drain is slightly feminine and in some ways resembles a woman’s hair. Other scroll designs available have slightly more intricate designs.

The art history drains are a bit more complex. The kokopelli and spray of leaves designs seem to have required a lot of etching. The kokopelli design features two of the mythical humpbacked, fertility creatures playing their signature flutes and facing each other. One is upside down; the other is right side up.

Square drains feature some of the same designs. They are centered in thicker borders and wider to accommodate the different shape of drains. There is something designer to fit a range of tastes.
