How to Choose Railings That Complement Your Home
Whether you’re after a full deck renovation or just a refreshed outdoor space, updating your deck railing is a simple way to make a statement, as well as add functionality, safety, and beauty to your deck area. With so many styles, materials, and color options available to you, it’s important to find a railing that provides the safety you need, while creating a beautiful aesthetic that complements your home and style preferences.
As a Minnesota-based deck building company, we highly recommend maintenance-free deck railing styles, as they maintain their strength and beauty, despite our harsh winter seasons, and require no upkeep to ensure its integrity. At UglyDeck.com, we have several Westbury maintenance-free deck railing styles made from powder-coated aluminum that can stand the test of time and harsher climates, while emphasizing your beautiful outdoor space to make it a true, enjoyable extension of your home.
Maintenance-Free Railing Styles
It’s important to us, at UglyDeck.com, to provide customers with quality products that meet their needs and preferences, while still prioritizing safety and security. The below railing style options check all the boxes! They are durable and entirely customizable. Taking inspiration from the look of your home and your own style preferences, you can customize your maintenance-free railing to perfectly complement your home and outdoor space, by selecting from our several powder-coating color and texture options and by adding railing accessories, like post lights and planters, to really tie in your style and bring life to your outdoor deck.
The Tuscany style railing is our most classic deck railing choice. With its simple-structured posts and vertical spindles (i.e. balusters) extending from top rail to bottom rail, it has sleek lines and a modest aesthetic, perfect for homeowners looking to accentuate their surroundings.
The Riviera Series comes in six varieties that all provide a contemporary, clean look for homeowners: Riviera, Riviera I, Riviera 2, Riviera 3, Riviera 4, and Riviera Rings. Each variety boasts beautiful vertical spindles that extend from the bottom railing to a mid-railing (i.e. a second rail below the top rail) and offer homeowners several deck railing options from which to choose:
- Riviera: The Riviera railing is a great option for homeowners who want to enjoy the views from their deck with a top rail and mid rail that run parallel to one another without any spindles connecting them.
- Riviera 1 through Riviera 4: Similar to the Riviera railing, these Riviera styles have top rails and mid rails; however, some spindles from the bottom rail extend through the mid rail to the top rail, depending on which variety you choose. The Riviera 1 provides a beautiful grid-like pattern, extending every spindle from the bottom rail through the mid rail to the top railing, while the Riviera 4 railing creates more of a slim rectangular pattern by having every fourth railing extend through from the bottom railing to the very top railing. All of these deck railings are similar, but each allows you to customize the size of the pattern between the mid rail and top rail. The Riviera 1, 2, 3 and 4 styles allow homeowners to really add a visual element that resembles their own style.
- Riviera Rings: The Riviera Rings variety offers a truly unique visual effect between the top and mid rails. Instead of a continuation of the lower spindles, the Riviera Rings style connects the top and mid rail with a chain of rings, creating an attractive circular pattern at the top of your railing. This is a gorgeous statement that adds visual interest to your decking.
Verdana Glass Style
Our Verdana Glass railing is our most modern collection. Using customizable powder-coated aluminum framing and posts, tempered-glass panels replace traditional spindles, allowing homeowners to take advantage of the stunning views from their outdoor decks.
Vertical Cable Style
The Vertical Cable style offer homeowners an industrial, contemporary choice for their deck railing options. Unlike traditional railings, this railing option replaces some spindles with vertical cables, connecting the bottom and top railings, creating a design that embraces the views surrounding your deck, while still offering durability and strength.
