Covered deck decorating ideas

Treat your covered deck as a natural extension of your home by enhancing it with decorative and comfortable pieces. Provide plenty of seating options for entertaining friends and family members during warm summer days and evenings. Take advantage of the covered deck's roof by suspending lighting fixtures and festive holiday decor from it.

Seating Elements

Create a cosy space by decorating the covered deck with ample seating elements. Comfy seats will encourage friends, family and neighbours to take the time to sit and talk over a cup of coffee or tea. If the deck ceiling and space allows, suspend a chair swing for a touch of comfort and country-inspired charm. Enhance the deck with a vintage woven bamboo or wicker chair set. Choose chair cushions to coordinate with the deck decor theme, such as a pastel pink and green floral pattern for a garden-inspired space. Set up a small wooden or metal bistro table and chair set for hosting light lunches or intimate get-togethers. Cover the table with a decorative cloth, and use a vase filled with fresh-cut garden or yard flowers, such as lilacs or tulips, as a simple and sweet-smelling centrepiece.

Soft Lighting

Create ambience with lighting options that look just as good unlit as they do when they are glowing. Hang the lights over seating or dining areas from the deck's ceiling. For an exotic style, choose brightly coloured Chinese paper lanterns featuring traditional symbols and designs. As a more subdued look, pick plain, all-white paper lanterns, which will infuse the space with elegance. Antique copper or wrought iron hanging lanterns will look both casual and artistic. You can also wrap string lights around the deck's railings and beams. Decorate for the holidays or a party by choosing brightly coloured or whimsical lights, such as palm tree-shaped versions for a beach-themed birthday bash.

Plenty of Plants

Transform your covered deck into a soothing, nature-inspired respite by decorating with green plants and colourful flowers. Fill in an empty corner with a wrought iron plant stand filled with terracotta plant pots for a rustic look. Plant mini fruit or pine trees in large pots to bring a bit of nature close to home. Rework vintage pieces, such as metal wagons, watering pails, old dresser drawers, tea pots and tool boxes into creative and eco-friendly plant holders. Hang woven baskets filled with draping vines from the deck ceiling. Vases filled with vibrant garden roses and lilies will add a pop of colour to the deck.
