Curved Multi Level Deck

This deck by @deckremodelers offers separate spacious levels for dining and lounging. There’s easy access to the nearby kitchen from the dining table on the higher level. And after dinner, guests can take a few steps down to the lower level and relax near the fire pit.

The curved design looks great, and the organic shape makes for a seamless transition from the deck to the rest of the landscaped yard.

Two decks stacked on top of each other, like these from @austinsfinestdeck, work great if there’s outdoor access on the first and second levels of your home.

This design features low-maintenance composite decking and custom modern railings made from cedar. The latter is a popular choice because it’s naturally resistant to rot, decay, insects and moisture absorption. Match the railings on both levels to visually tie the decks together.

Small Multi Level Deck

Multi level decks are commonly associated with large, luxurious homes. But as shown here by @mg_decks, even small decks can have more than one level.

The upper level of this clever design provides a beautiful entrance to the back door of the house, while the lower level offers a cozy sitting area. A few steps separate the levels. Depending on local ordinances and safety concerns, you may need to add a railing between the levels (not shown).

Long Multi Level Deck

The sweeping views from this home call for an equally impressive multi level deck, and @ladecks delivered. The deck runs the length of the house. The lower section in the middle creates a spot for lounging or eating. And the cable railing keeps those views uninterrupted.
