Make The Most Of Your Rooftop Deck
As soon as you step onto a rooftop deck, you are met with sweeping views and that ‘On Top of the World!’ feeling. Rooftop decks give you an escape from the indoors and become the perfect spot when entertaining.
For those who are fortunate enough to have a shared or private rooftop deck, we’ve compiled some of our favorite ways to utilize rooftop space, even as temperatures begin to cool down.
For all you early birds, head up to the deck in the morning! If you share a rooftop deck, this is the perfect time to be up there by yourself. Sit and enjoy a cup of coffee, complete a sunrise yoga session, or take a moment to read or journal before the busyness of the day sets in. Natural light in the morning helps wake up the brain and body, so aim to spend at least 15 minutes in the fresh air!
Keep it Cozy
Chilly evenings call for keeping cozy. Bring out some blankets, pillows, and your favorite beverage to enjoy the sunset. Adding an outdoor fireplace and lighting creates a romantic ambiance while keeping you warm.
The rooftop deck is the place to be for those who love to grill and dine al fresco. Adding an outdoor kitchen keeps your supplies close at hand, so you don’t have to keep running inside. Encourage your loved ones to join you on the deck as you cook, so you can catch up on the day without the distractions of the TV or computer.
Add Some Green
If your flowers are on their way out, replace them with greenery that will last through the fall and winter months. A pop of green makes any deck feel like you are out in nature. With the sun shining down and a gentle breeze, you’ll never want to come down.
When you have more than one seating option, it’s easier to get comfortable and spend more time on the deck. An outdoor couch, patio table, lounge chairs, and a bar-height table for standing provide distinct areas to gather, depending on your preferred rooftop activity!
No matter what you are doing on your rooftop, take time to simply enjoy the views!
