Accessorize Your Deck Railing with Style

Deck railing accessories come in an array of eye-catching materials and styles, making it easier than ever to design or upgrade your deck railing system. Enhancing the look of your wood railing or composite railing with these accessories will increase the charm and functionality of your deck and outdoor living area. With so many ornamental post caps, decorative balusters and other add-ons, you'll be able to customize your railing system to match your taste while complementing your home's architectural style.
The latest trend is to add ornamental lighting with post caps. Post caps highlight the posts at the top and bottom of stairways or deck entrances, or mark the perimeter of a deck. Solar Post Caps require no wiring and give off ambient light that's not overpowering. Low Voltage Post Caps from our Luna collection provide statement-making style that will instantly enhance any outdoor space. In most cases, railing upgrades are easy to make. Installing post caps can be as simple as adding some adhesive to the post caps and securing it directly to the post. Some post caps are built specifically for composite deck posts, so you'll want to check with the manufacturer to see what options are available and install according to their specifications. To really take your outdoor deck space to the next level consider adding Step Lights, Deck Sconces or Solar Post and Stair Lights.
Installing maintenance free powder-coated Aluminum Balusters on your deck railing system is another way to add creative flair, but will take a bit more time to install, especially if you'll be retrofitting a current railing system. Deckorators® Aluminum Balusters are available in several colors and designs and come with a lifetime warranty on the finish.
Adding Scenic Glass Balusters is also a unique idea if you desire an unobstructed view to a pool or lake, or if you just want to enjoy a beautiful setting.
Transform your deck's ordinary posts into impressive, natural-looking pillars with our cast stone Postcovers. Made of fiber-glass reinforced concrete, our post covers easily integrate into most deck or porch designs. Mix and match with an array of postcover caps for a one-of-a-kind look.
These are all great ways you can personalize your outdoor space for a unique look. For more inspiration check out our photo gallery.
