6 Quick Ways to Refresh Your Deck This Summer
Posted 5 July 2017 12:41 PM by Jase DeBoer
Your deck is an extension of your home, built to add space and style. It deserves the same love and attention as your indoor living space when it comes to updates and improvements. Try these easy-to-add accessories to give your deck an all-new personality this summer:
All it takes is a deck board railing connector. You can easily attach a deck board to the top of your railing, making your top railing wide enough to support a beverage while adding a sleek line of style.
A deck rail table is another option for added entertainment space to your deck. You can use the table for dining or as a drink station, grilling worktop or small gardening area. This product has the benefit of being portable. Put it up wherever you would like, take it down or move it to another location.
Give your deck a quick and easy update by changing the balusters. Baluster materials can range from powder-coated aluminum to composite and glass options. Not only is there a range of material options, balusters come in a range of sizes, colors and finishes to match whatever outdoor style you’re looking for.
Spruce up your deck posts with one- or two-piece covers made of fieldstone, cobblestone or stacked stone. The covers fit over 4” x 4” or 6” x 6” posts made of composite, vinyl or wood, turning them into pillars 3 ½’ or 4 ½’ high. You can top them off with gray or copper post caps for a finished look.
Have a new baby in the family? Or maybe a new pet? Installing an aluminum deck gate that can be cut to size to fit your existing stairway opening is a great way to add a new level of safety to your deck.
Add some nighttime visibility on your deck and stairs with outdoor lighting. Low-voltage or solar lighting is a nice touch that not only also enhances your deck’s ambiance into the evening hours but is also a great safety and security feature.
