When you want to expand the amount of livable space in your home what comes to mind? Build an addition to your home? Add a porch? A patio? A deck out back?

All of these are good ideas, but have you ever thought about building up? What about a rooftop deck?

You can bring new life and purpose to an often neglected space in your home by building a custom deck on your roof using the StoneDeks System.

You can use this space for relaxing, entertaining, or stargazing with stunning bird’s-eye views. Rooftop decks maximize your livable space by utilizing square footage that normally goes to waste.

Here are five unique home rooftop deck ideas to get the most out of your place.

An Urban Oasis

If you live in a concrete jungle, it can be difficult adding greenery into your life without making a special trip to park. However, you can turn your rooftop into an urban oasis with a touch of green by adding artificial turf on top of StoneDeks’ SilcaGrates. You can add natural beauty, too, with raised flower beds and pathways with stone borders that allow greenery to grow between pavers.

A Natural Escape

Moving in the other direction from an Urban Oasis is a Natural Escape with a scenic vista. If your home is nestled along the woods or other natural elements, your rooftop deck can help you escape from the hustle and bustle of the day to relax and take in the beauty around you. The StoneDeks SilcaGrates provide the perfect foundation for these stone pavers that help you accent your natural surroundings. Wind down from a hectic day listening to the birds chirping and wind whistling through the trees.

A Pool With a View

Forget about a room with a view, how about a pool with a view? Yes, homeowners are building rooftop decks with pools and porcelain pavers. If you love the idea of enjoying a refreshing dip in the pool but you do not have enough space in your yard, or you do not want to sacrifice that space for the pool, look to the roof. Live a life of luxury with the addition of a pool, spa, or hot tub on your roof deck. Our SilcaGrates allow for the easy installation of the porcelain pavers, and you can always add a touch of green around the pool with synthetic turf atop the grates.

An Entertainer’s Paradise

As you consider a variety of unique home rooftop deck ideas, you really start with a blank canvas. Our SilcaGrates and Silca SoilGrids provide opportunities to build a variety of decks and use different hardscapes, including an Entertainer’s Paradise. Why not build an outdoor kitchen and dining area perfect for hosting parties and entertaining guests. Use porcelain tiles to create a durable surface that’s easy to clean. Finish your creation with a stone bar, grill station, and weather-resistant furnishings.

Rustic Stone and Wood Getaway

Mix rustic charm with modern design by combining wood and stone elements. Use wooden planks, or wood-like composite boards, alongside natural stone pavers to create a warm, inviting space. Add cozy seating, outdoor lanterns, and greenery to enhance the rustic feel. When you need to get out of the house, head to the rof with this Rustic Stone and Wood Getaway.
