7 Simple Improvements for Vinyl Roof Decks

It’s spring, a time when vinyl roof decks are places we all look forward to spending more time on. Spring is also a great time for making a few improvements to your outdoor living spaces. The more you improve your deck space, the more likely you’ll spend time on your deck. So, what are some easy ways to make vinyl roof decks worth spending time on?

Improvement #1: Adding Shade to Vinyl Roof Decks

Too much sun or heat sounds funny to complain about when the snow is still melting, but if the heat last year had you heading inside, consider adding some shade to your deck with a pergola, shade sail, or even a regular patio umbrella. You can even take it up a notch by installing a patio mister to help out on those really hot summer days.

Improvement #2: Serve it Right

Dinged, dingy, or dented serving ware doesn’t help your deck feel like a comfortable place to spend time. Instead, it might feel more like a family camping trip. Upgrading dishware, glasses, and cutlery will help vinyl roof decks feel more like staycations than camping.

Improvement #3: Install More Amenities

It can be a pain to try and relax on your roof deck if you’re constantly having to run back inside to use the kitchen, grab cups, or rinse dishes. Bringing the kitchen outside can help vinyl roof decks feel like an extension of the home, rather than just a place where you get to sit down to relax until you need to head back inside.

Improvement #4: Add Lighting

String lights, fairy lights, and paper lanterns can all add a touch of ambiance that might be lacking on vinyl roof decks. Not only are lights a quick and easy improvement, they add a touch of style and let you enjoy your vinyl deck longer into the evenings.

Improvement #5: The Sound of Music

While some of us might be lucky enough to relax to the sound of ocean waves or the twittering of birds, most people with vinyl roof decks will have some ambient noise they wish they could block out. With the plethora of wireless options available, it’s easy to install some speakers (or bring a wireless one out with you) so you can enjoy your roof deck with some tunes.

Improvement #6: Greenery

Some vinyl roof decks end up feeling a bit utilitarian – all function and no style. Create an oasis outdoors with potted plants, even large palms and bamboos if you have the space. As an added bonus you’ll get more privacy!

Improvement #7: Multi-Functional

Creating a balance between seating and storage on vinyl roof decks is easy with multifunctional pieces. Benches and ottomans can double as storage, while cabinets can have flip down table tops for eating.

If you’re looking at your roof deck and wondering whether any (or all) of these changes will make any kind of difference, then perhaps it’s time to make a bigger improvement by installing new vinyl decking. It’s a simple, affordable way to give vinyl roof decks a whole new look.
