Some of the most breathtaking moments are leaning on a picturesque railing watching the sun set in warm autumn hues. The crickets have started their serenade and a cool, gentle breeze playfully lifts your hair in a whimsical dance. The silhouettes of birds float across the paling sky. It’s the perfect end to a perfect day! You start to think that nothing could possibly ruin such a tranquil moment – and then – MOMMMMM! She won’t stop breathing my air! – Now you close your eyes trying desperately to recapture those few peaceful moments. But the moment has passed and you have to get everyone ready for bed and through the tub until you can finally escape to your Master Suite, wishing you could just step out your door and inhale that cool night air while gazing at the twilit sky sprinkled with a dusting of stars – but alas all you have is a window which just doesn’t feel the same when gazing through a screen! If only you could have a private deck accessed from the Master Suite!
Never fear! The trends Gods have heard you plea! Along with the sitting room (as discussed in a previous post) the private deck (or patio if you’re Master Suite at grade) is waiting to become a part of your home. Some have incorporated the Master Deck into the main deck providing a somewhat private transition such as a walkway or elevated section. Others have secluded the Master Deck entirely from all other spaces making it a private retreat to be enjoyed by the homeowner only (Sometimes you really do need to get away from it all). Whatever your preference the Master Deck is a welcome addition to every home and something you will enjoy in any stage of life.
