We couldn’t imagine a better deck railing for this cozy home hidden away in a California forest. While railings are available in many materials from wood to metal and glass, this one with bark covered branches clearly is the perfect choice. The following pictures will show how the right railing design is key to preserving the character of your home and its surroundings.
Notice how the branching balusters in the California deck railing echo the shapes of the pine trees beyond. These complementing forms ease the transition from the outdoor living space to the landscape seamlessly and… beautifully! In fact, the Mountain Laurel railing becomes part of the landscape.
The homeowners further customize their deck by selecting chunky, yellow pine posts to support each railing section. The wood grain features natural whorls or knots that enhance the overall rustic look of the outdoor space.
As a design note, we like the way meandering branch balusters contrast with the linear floor boards. The variation in form adds a visual twist to the California deck railing.
Beyond beauty, the Mountain Laurel handrail is necessary as a safety feature. The platform deck rests on the edge of a steep slope. By installing the decking system, the homeowners are able to turn this area into use-able outdoor living space. And of course, now they can relax while taking advantage of the incredible view!
From concept to installation, take the time to craft the right railing design to capitalize on your outdoor surroundings. As you can see, the homeowners of this California deck railing did just that. The result allows for more outdoor living space, greater visual appeal and beautiful views. To make your dream railing a reality contact Mountain Laurel Railing today!
