DES MOINES, Iowa, June 18 /PRNewswire/ — With the warm weather here now, Better Homes and Gardens and BHG.com is featuring photos and planning ideas for deck designs, deck remodeling and building and outdoor kitchens designs for every budget level.

“When you are in the beginning stages of a remodeling project, building a deck or installing an outdoor kitchen, the two most important things to consider are: How you are going to use it and how this new construction will fit into your home,” said Kaelin Zawilinski, BHG Home Channel Editor. “On our site, we have photos and information that guide you through these important decisions, such as style, neighborhood appeal, and your landscape design. We also have helpful step-by-step tips to lead you through the remodeling or building process.”

Once the deck concept is clear, deck design comes next. At BHG.com, there is an array of photos with different styles – all geared to making deck design decisions easier. Then it’s time to draw up the budget. Budgeting for a new deck at BHG.com is streamlined with estimates for various kinds of building materials and overall costs.
