Choosing the Right Outdoor Railings for Your Deck

Some homeowners might not think of their home’s outdoor railings, whether enclosing a deck or a balcony, as an opportunity to add much character or style to their space. However, that’s just not the case! Choosing stylish railings for your home’s deck or balcony can completely transform the space. Though you’re obviously looking for a choice that is safe and durable, there are railing options out there that combine functionality with a stylish flair.

A great example to look at is one of our recent projects, the Van Dyke MidCentury Modern Addition and Renovation. Part of the exterior addition to this Dallas home was the expansive wraparound deck, which provided additional outdoor space that the homeowners wanted to be inspired by the Dallas skyline. In order to make the deck more reminiscent of the sleek, modern city skyline, we chose to use the Rainier stainless steel cable railing from AGS Stainless.

This railing system was the ideal solution for creating a virtually transparent barrier that would remind the homeowners of the modernness of the Dallas city skyline. The cables are thin but highly durable, making this railing system a safe choice that also provides the look and feel that family wanted out of their new outdoor space. Atop the stainless steel cables is a flat wood top rail, keeping the home’s appearance contemporary without looking too industrial.

We love combining the durability of stainless steel with the welcoming appearance of wood, blending the two for what we called a mid-century modern masterpiece. We were able to provide safe boundaries to the wraparound deck so that the family could enjoy their new outdoor space as part of the second story addition to their formerly one story home!
