1. 10 examples of beautiful wood deck arranged by professionals (with images)
First, we will provide you with 10 examples of professionally arranged wood decks. All of them are with images and explanations to make it look beautiful. If you are planning a wood deck, please take a look at them.
1-1. Wood deck on the second floor with view and breeze
This residence has a wood deck on the second floor balcony to enjoy the view of Fuji and other mountains. This makes you want to gaze at it forever.
The triangular terrace, which emphasizes continuity from the living room, provides a place for the family to gather with a spacious dining table and chairs. The space is illuminated only by simple, small light bulbs, but the absence of large buildings nearby allows for ample moonlight to illuminate the space for relaxation.
1-2. Compact wood deck matched with beautiful green lawn
In this two-family house, small wooden decks are built in the yards of both houses. The light-color flooring matches well with the beautiful green lawn.
Such a compact wood deck is also ideal for taking a break from housework to sit down and take a break. On a starry night, you may sit on the wood deck with your family and have chatting while gazing at the night sky.
1-3. Supreme space where birdsong soothes
This is a villa in Nagano surrounded by larch and other trees. The wood deck is installed in the villa, which takes advantage of its favorable location. Visitors can relax while listening to birdsong and the sound of leaves touching each other.
By matching the color tone with the wood of the exterior walls, the wood deck looks larger. An easy chair and stool are also placed on the deck so that you can sit back and enjoy your own healing space.
1-4. Wood deck as porch
As this house has a plenty of room on the lot, a courtyard is made to ensure privacy and freedom. Outside the living room window facing the courtyard, a long and narrow wood deck is designed to be used like a porch.
The best thing about this house is that people can enjoy reading or children can play around in the sunlight that pours down from the sky, without caring others.
1-5. Wood deck designed half-lower to provide privacy
This is a 2.5-story high house, designed so that each floor on the second floor offers a panoramic view of the city. On the other hand, the living room, dining room, kitchen, and garden, where the family spends most of its time, are built half a story lower than the street, ensuring privacy.
A large wood deck is made in the spacious yard. If you place outdoor chairs, you will be able to relax, watching children playing energetically.
1-6. Terrace with great view to directly feel the seasons
In this residence, lawn and garden trees are planted on the front slope so that you can feel change of the seasons in the entire garden. Next to the lawn is a terrace with a great view that is integrated with the parking lot. The terrace is not roofed, allowing the resident to fully enjoy the sunlight.
The color of the wood deck is a dark brown that looks great against the clean white exterior walls. The contrast of "white x brown x green" creates a beautiful atmosphere.
1-7. Wood deck in patio for complete privacy
In this house with a natural impression, a wood deck is in the courtyard for a completely private space. To add a sense of openness to the courtyard, which tends to be closed off, the flooring material of the wood deck is the same color tone as that of the interior.
Another key point is the spotlights that help to create a beautiful space. The spotlights installed from the interior to the courtyard create a cool and chic wood deck.
1-8. Sophisticated wood deck integrated with interior
This villa, a "one-story house in the sky", is designed as a stilt house. Large windows with no middle piers are installed to enhance the continuity with the interior, creating a building with a resort-like atmosphere.
Another feature is the wood deck designed to surround the building, allowing you to enjoy a hotel-like atmosphere. Overlooking Lake Ashino and Mt. Fuji, this villa will instantly transport you to an extraordinary world.
1-9. Wood deck with awning for daylight control
This one-story house in Ibaraki has a wooden deck on the south side overlooking the river and bridge. A low concrete wall is built around the wood deck to separate the private space from the outside.
Since sunlight comes in pleasantly, a foldable roof "awning" is installed for easy adjustment of the amount of sunlight as a measure against heat. You can enjoy your own time in the shade and fresh breeze.
1-10. Lighted symbolic trees create fantastic space
This house is designed to have secure privacy from the surrounding environment, and is designed to let in light mainly from above, rather than from the sides.
The small courtyard in the center of the house is spacious with a wood deck in the same color tone as the interior flooring. The symbol tree, which provides healing, is lit up at night to enjoy the fantastic courtyard.

2. Four key points to make your wood deck beautiful
Here are four key points to make your wooden deck beautiful. If you build your concept with these points in mind, you will be able to create your ideal wooden deck without mistakes.
2-1. Match color tone with interior flooring
The first point is to match the color tones of the "wood used on the wood deck" and the "indoor flooring material". Matching the color tones will create a sense of continuity from indoors to outdoors and make the space look larger.
To avoid making mistakes in color tone selection, we recommend that you ask for flooring samples from the designer. If the color tone is matched only from photographs of the flooring, it may not match the real color due to the light or camera's performance. Create a consistent look of flooring indoors and outdoors to enjoy a spacious, open feel.
2-2. Blindfolds combined with garden trees creates sophisticated space
If the wood deck faces a public street, it will need to be blindfolded for privacy.
While standard panels and fences can be used, we recommend using garden trees to create a more beautiful wood deck. When using garden trees as blindfolds, choose "evergreen trees" that have leaves all year round.
You can enjoy the natural and beautiful atmosphere of a wooden deck while having secure privacy throughout the year.
2-3. Resin material allows you enjoy beautiful condition for a long time
If you want to enjoy your wood deck in beautiful condition for a long time, choose resin wood.
While natural wood can be enjoyed over time, it has the disadvantage of quick decaying if not maintained properly.
A resin wood deck, on the other hand, is made from a mixture of "wood powder" and "resin (plastic)," so it is attractive because it keeps beautiful state for a long time. In addition, there is no need to worry about damaging the appearance of the deck, as it looks almost the same as natural wood.
Although the initial cost is higher, you will be able to enjoy a functional and beautiful wood deck for a long time.
2-4. Focus on interior decorating
If you dare not put anything on the wood deck, you can use it spaciously, but if you pay attention to outdoor interior design, you can enjoy a more lovable and beautiful space.
For example, you can create a mini-outdoor space by placing camping chairs and a barbecue set. You can also enjoy an English garden-style wood deck by planters of various plants and flowers.
As above, the ideal interior design will emphasize your originality and create a beautiful wood deck that attracts people's attention.
Interior design and furniture matching with beautiful wood deck
Next, we will see some interior design and furniture to match your beautiful wood deck.
A wood deck with nothing on it is simple and attractive, but you can create an even more beautiful and comfortable space by combining interior design and furniture.
3-1. Awnings and shades as shade
When spending time outdoors, it is useful to have an overhead "awning" or "shade". They are so-called "awnings" that control the amount of sunlight that comes in.
A product with a UV-blocking finish on the fabric allows you to be relaxed and enjoy your time on the wood deck without worrying about UV rays.
Awnings and shades can be used in the summer to reduce the amount of sunlight entering through the windows, thereby reducing the rise in room temperature. If the room temperature does not rise, you don't need to turn on the air conditioner as much, which saves on electricity costs.
Awnings and shades are multi-purpose items because they also provide privacy in addition to sun protection.
3-2. Outdoor garden furniture
Having your own special "outdoor garden furniture" will make your wood deck more comfortable and beautiful. These days, there is a full lineup of outdoor garden furniture, allowing you to enjoy a variety of interior combinations to your style.
For example, furniture made of rattan will give the space a resort-like feel, while furniture made of outdoor weather-resistant fabrics will allow you to enjoy a comfortable space regardless of the weather.
3-3. Place beautiful designed shed for storage space
When it comes to outdoor storage space, many people may imagine a modest shed. Recently, however, there are many beautifully designed sheds on the market. If you pay attention to the shed, you can enjoy a more beautiful space with a sense of unity throughout the entire garden, including the wood deck.
For example, a rattan shed in a chic color will create a calm, mature atmosphere, while a Scandinavian-style white or gray shed will bring a nostalgic look.
In many cases, garden equipment used outdoors is especially difficult to store, so it is convenient to have an easy-to-use, beautiful shed.
4. Total coordination is possible when hiring architect
If you want to create a beautiful wood deck that attracts people's attention, we recommend you ask an architect to propose a total coordination plan.
Coordinating furniture and interior design for a beautiful wood deck is fashionable, but it can also be quite tiring. By hiring an architect, you can add professional ideas and arrangements to your ideal wood deck to create a richer space.
You can also buy DIY sets of wood decks that can be assembled by yourself without hiring a contractor. If you are accustomed to DIY and like large-scale work, you can install it yourself.
However, wood decks, where people walk and outdoor furniture is placed, will deteriorate quickly if they are not built properly. In the worst case scenario, you could be injured.
To ensure long term safety of your wood deck, it is a good idea to hire a professional who is familiar with construction and design.
Although a wood deck requires high initial cost, it is one of the most important exterior elements if you have the budget. This is because a beautiful wood deck makes you feel like going out to the garden and have a good time with your family.
For this reason, it is very important to choose an interior design that allows you to spend long hours on the wood deck and relax.
