If this location of your deck does not suit your house you can add covered deck ideas with an overhead screen or awning to block the sunlight and keep your deck cool. While most decks are attached to the side of a house and act as extensions to your home, some are placed farther from the house. It may be a good idea to build a walkway or path for easy access to your deck. If your home has an above ground pool, you may consider building a swimming pool deck path to connect your home to your outdoor living area. Once your location is determined, the next step is to determine the shape of your deck. While most decks are a simple rectangle or square facing off the side of the house, deck shapes vary from circular to elaborate wave shapes.
