Posted 4 June 2020 1:08 PM by Jase DeBoer

Your deck is an extension of your home, creating additional living space that allows you to enjoy the outdoors. It is the perfect time of year to give your backyard a refresh with some easy-to-add deck accessories.

A simple and effective way to add a fresh look to your outdoor space is to conceal your deck under-structure by adding a lattice deck skirt. Or if you’re looking to add some seclusion to your outdoor space, you could also create a privacy wall using lattice panels. This is a great way to define your outdoor space in a new way.

Adding a new baluster style to your railing is a affordable and easy way to give your deck a refresh. There are many baluster materials to choose from – powder-coated aluminum to glass options. Not only are there many material options, balusters come in a range of sizes, colors and finishes to create whatever outdoor style you are looking for.

Add some nighttime ambiance to your deck and stairs with outdoor lighting. Solar or low-voltage post caps are a terrific addition to any deck or porch. Not only do they add a fresh look to your deck or porch space, but they are also a practical safety feature so you can enjoy your deck into the evening hours. String lights are another easy way to add illumination and enjoy your outdoor living area at night.
