The function of stairs is as an access to get in from one area to another area or simply connecting first floor to the upper floors. This thing can connect the lower base to the upper base, like deck stairs.
Deck stairs is situated outside of our home or mainly connected the porch deck to the lower ground. That is why, the deck only have few stairs or steps and physically looks simpler than the style that we have inside our home. It is nothing special about it.
Even so, it doesn’t mean that we should ignore the style or the design of the deck stairs. We should make it looks attractive and nice especially if it is made from wood. Although we can do a concrete material for deck stairs, wooden material are more preferable and still everyone’s favorite. Wooden stairs will perfectly match with the deck itself, because it will looks more natural.
We can design a unique shape by making some combination of the stairs itself. The combination could be from the thickness of the wood we use or it may about the size itself. By combining big, small, thick and wide style, our deck will be more attractive. Additionally, you can add a deck stairs railing if you feel it is important.
When you are constructing wooden material, you should use some wood planks that arranged horizontally to be stronger. Make sure that you choose the wood type that can stay longer for outdoor use or you must laminate it with all weather paint.
Find some deck stairs ideas from internet or consult your experts. Plan it well before constructing them. Try to make a balance concept between your stairs and the deck itself.
For the decorations, you can add some lamps besides the deck stair or you can add few lamps on the railing. As an alternative you can make a hole on each step of the stairs to place a lamp that will glow in the night for safety reason. If you need more natural look, then put some plants on each side of them.
