Good Things Come In Small Packages

Who isn't envious of the grand decks and outdoor spaces that you find in the inspiration galleries at Winding staircases that lead to opulent pools, walking bridges connecting the indoors to the out, and luxurious seaside resorts built right in the backyard. It's the kind of perfection usually reserved for home-channel marathons and glossy shelter magazines.

Don’t let those images crush your dreams. Trex is the perfect solution for tight spaces and challenging environments across the country. Take a look at these decks worthy of the green-eyed monster.


This rooftop deck with stunning views of the Chicago skyline, provides a peaceful spot for this condo owner who chose Trex decking in a medium brown coupled with black Transcend® railing. Imagine an evening entertaining friends or relaxing away a Saturday afternoon while the world rushes by below.


This Transcend deck in Gravel Path may be small but, oh, how it extends the living space of this boldly designed home in Denver, Co. Chic.


In this Virginia backyard, Saddle and Woodland Brown decking pair with modern Transcend railing and elegant furniture combine to create the perfect outdoor nook, proving that small spaces make a big impact when planned to correctly suit the site.


Moving across the country to Idaho, the Trex Select® decking and railing line provides a simple, yet aesthetically pleasing, design that allows the homeowner to enjoy Mother Nature at her finest. Nothing fancy, and yet the perfect touch.


A little bit of attention to detail can have big impact. An accent board in a contrasting color creates all the charm needed to set off the Trex® Outdoor Furniture dining set and Adirondack chair, lush greenery and charming lanterns. This homeowner gets a lot of return on investment with this deck in the Washington, D.C., suburbs.

"Down East" in Maine, this homeowner understands how to make a statement. Bending our Transcend boards in Gravel Path and mimicking the look with a circular bench in Transcend Vintage Lantern adds punch to this intimate space. White Trex Outdoor Furniture provides a complementary pop of wow!
