The word “deck” implies expansive spaces, long lines of wooden slats stretching before you for great lengths of yardage, but we like to think that “deck” can also refer to our little concrete balconies or even our (potentially hazardous) fire escapes.

Home is where the heart is, and decks are what you make them, so we’ve compiled our favorite *true* roof decks to use as aspirational/inspirational fodder for whatever sunny spots we have in our lives. Plants, furniture, spatial reasoning and a little imagination can transport us from urban area to countryside garden in no time at all.

Just because it's outside doesn't mean it can't be chic. Weather-resistant fabrics come in every color and pattern imaginable so don't hesitate to create a beautiful, cohesive space with similar shades. Outdoor furniture that closely mirrors what you'd want to have inside is also now "a thing!"
