Accent Your Deck In 5 Cool Ways

Stairs are a great way to add creativity to your deck.

There are countless ways to customize your deck. This article presents some options for 5 specific areas:

  1. Benches
  2. Planters
  3. Railings
  4. Roofing
  5. Stairs

Benches

Benches can serve many purposes on a deck. In addition to their obvious use as seating , they can provide a barrier at the edge of a low deck, or a surface for plants in containers, creating a multi-level potted garden show in the growing season. Free Woodworking Plans has lots of styles to consider, including Mission Style, a Heart Bench, and a Time Out Bench. Free Bench Plans also offers free woodworking plans for building deck benches, including potting and storage benches.

Planters

No deck seems complete without planters of some kind. Even a single planter of substantial size can add a beautiful, cared-for look to a deck. If you're a do-it-yourselfer, you can build your own planters – perhaps with materials left over from deck construction or other projects. Garden centers and import shops are excellent places to find ceramic, terra cotta, and faux stone planters. For inspiration, check out the garden centers at your local Lowe's or The Home Depot .

Railings

Many homeowners will hire a contractor to build the foundation and floor of their deck, but select different materials for the railings and either install them themselves or with the help of a fellow do-it-yourselfer. Railings add safety and also define the deck surface area.
