40. Install a Tent-Like Topper

A stylish fabric canopy is a thrifty alternative to a solid roof. Here, metal poles anchored to the deck railings and house form a framework for fade-resistant fabric. Retractable versions allow you to enjoy full sun or a starry night.

We like the heavy-duty remote-controlled Capri retractable canopy with Sunbrella Gray/Beige Chip Fancy fabric, about $3,600 (for a 10-by-12-foot deck like this one), including delivery and installation; shadetreecanopies.com.
