There are many ways to design your deck. You might want to consider adding more levels. Many people are building multiple levels decks in many different configurations.
Each level of the deck can have a specific purpose. The main level closest to the house usually serves as a large open-air grilling and dining area. The next level down would be designed for an intimate lounging and quiet lounging area. A third level could be added for a fire pit or hot tub. These levels are usually just a couple steps down from each other, but they have the feeling of a whole separate room.
