Wrap Your Deck Like You'd Wrap A Present

Want to add personality to your deck? Take cues from those beautifully wrapped gifts beneath the tree.

'Tis the season for brightly wrapped packages, shimmering bows and personalized cards with just the right holiday greeting. Half the fun of receiving a gift is how it is presented, which is why many people personalize gift wrapping so it dazzles under the tree. Just as you find the right combo of paper, ribbon and bows, so too should you mix and match to find the perfect combo of deck accessories so your outdoor space fits your personality to a "T."

Deckorators Happy Holidays

Finding the right gift wrap is the first step to wrapping the perfect present. When personalizing your deck, the first step is to determine what railing and balusters you like best. Deckorators® low maintenance railings and balusters come in a variety of styles and finishes designed to suit any railing need. From sleek and modern to classic and charming, they provide a great start for your deck and outdoor style.

The next step in wrapping a gift is to find the right ribbon and tie the package together with care. For your deck, use low voltage lighting to add a warm glow after dark and provide an element of safety. Look for unique LED lighting options that are energy efficient, inexpensive to run and perfectly accent your deck railing and balusters.

The final piece of any gift wrap would have to be the bow. For the homeowner who overlooks no detail, the deck equivalent is the addition of post caps and postcovers. From stained glass to copper, Deckorators post caps add visual appeal and personality to any boring post, and are the ideal finishing touch you've been looking for. If you'd rather add visual interest and cover your entire post, consider postcovers which realistically simulate the look of a stacked stone post - at a fraction of the cost of real stone.

While it might be easy to pick out the right wrapping supplies, deciding on deck accessories can be difficult. That's why Deckorators Deck Visualizer is the perfect solution. Spend some time online changing out the different options to get the ideal style to suit your personal tastes.

Whether you're personalizing gifts or personalizing your deck, we wish you a happy holiday season and a wonderful new year!
