Summertime is here, which means it’s time to lounge on a white sandy Mediterranean beach, sip a glass of chilled white wine, and gaze out at the clear blue water. Of course, if you’re anything like the rest of us, you likely won’t make it to the Mediterranean this summer – but that’s all the more reason to make this the year that you invest in your own outdoor retreat. With a few accents, your deck or pool area can become the swanky hotel, cozy lodge, or stunning beach getaway of your dreams. Let’s start by exploring some of the deck railing styles on today’s market.
Deck Railing Styles
For a Chic, European Look: Stylish Three-Rail Designs
If you’re dreaming of lounging beachside near the Mediterranean, the Westbury Riviera Series could be a great fit for your vision. This series offers different styles along with a stylish top rail and 3/4″ square or round spindles. This aluminum fencing system is sleek, simple, and versatile, serving as a stylish accessory to any deck or patio – poolside or otherwise. The Riviera series also offers a clean, traditional look, making it a great fit for homeowners going for a classic aesthetic. Overall, three-rail designs offer a chic, subtle twist without being overly flashy or trendy. You can also customize the railing down to the color, design, and height.
For a Touch of Elegance: Curved Railing
Homeowners going for a bolder look should check out the Westbury Montego Series, featuring an elegant two-rail design accented by 3/4″ architectural balusters. The Montego Series creates an unparalleled eye-catching design worthy of rolling out the red carpet. You can also customize Montego railings with a variety of satin, textured, and multi-color finishes. This railing design works great on Juliet balconies and other smaller outdoor spaces.
For a Rustic Retreat: Classic Two-Rail Designs
If you’re looking for a deck for a lakeside retreat or outdoorsy cabin, the Westbury Tuscany Series could be a perfect fit for your project. This classic two-rail series is accented with a stylish top rail and 3/4″ spindles. So, what sets the Tuscany series apart? This product line incorporates larger posts, giving the railing a slightly chunkier, rustic feel that still appears extremely modern. Like the other Westbury options, the Tuscany series is available in a variety of satin, textured, and multi-color finishes so you can customize the best railing for your outdoor oasis.
For a Gorgeous View: Glass Railing
Love looking out at your lake or mountain view, but hate the stress that comes with a barrier-free deck? You shouldn’t have to sacrifice beauty for safety. If you need a deck barrier to keep your guests safe – but don’t want to obscure the gorgeous view around your outdoor area – look no further than Westbury’s Veranda Series. The Veranda Series creates a phenomenal viewing area, with crystal clear glass panels placed between a classic two-rail design for full visibility. The Veranda Series is also an ideal option for sleek, modern outdoor areas, with a minimal look that designers love.
For Accessibility: Continuous Deck Railing
Accessibility may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you’re outfitting your outdoor retreat. However, if you’re installing a deck in a business or public space, your handrail must be fully compliant with the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA). Keep in mind that you never have to sacrifice aesthetic appeal for ADA compliance. We offer an ADA-compliant aluminum continuous handrail system, featuring a lifetime limited warranty and all of our standard powder coating colors. If you have your heart set on another Westbury railing style, you can even add this system to existing Westbury railing segments to meet ADA code requirements.
Customize Your Deck Railing
Once you’ve selected your railing style, don’t forget to add the finishing touch: railing accessories and customizations. Accessories allow for an even higher level of customizability, with several options available for every Westbury design. For example, if you’re shopping for a sleek railing design – but also want a bit of stylish flair – accessories can be the answer to your prayers. The following are some of your options:
- Variety of post sizes and wall thickness for added strength
- Standard brackets combined with swivel mounts to solve mounting scenarios
- Post caps available in a variety of styles
- Both one-piece and two-piece post flairs
- Extra tall posts up to six feet available for maximum security
