Whether you’re designing a new deck for your home or you’ve moved into a home with an existing one, you want to make sure it looks good and fits your style. All decks are outdoors, so it should fit the outdoor feeling it’s already in. Fora beautiful, unique, and natural style for your deck, look to Mountain Laurel Handrails. Each of these deck hand railing sections are made to your specifications and bring in the beauty of the nature beyond.
Picture enjoying your morning coffee outside, gazing at the scenic beauty surrounding your home. Now imagine taking in the view through a deck handrail that blends into the scenery and compliments the view instead of getting in the way.
Not only are they great for updating the general appearance of the exterior of your home, they’re necessary for ensuring safety for children and pets, especially if your deck is above ground level. What better a way to take those safety measures than with these beautiful wood handrails for decks?
The homeowner of the project pictured here installed on these on his home in the North Georgia Mountains. He emailed these pictures and said:
As you may be able to tell from the pictures, the railings have been up for several weeks; I am just now getting around to send you the pictures I promised. As I hope you can tell, the project turned out very well, and we are delighted with the railings. — Regis
Installed on a home in the North Georgia Mountains, Mountain Laurel Handrails are a perfect match for the beautiful mountain scenery. The windy wood almost perfectly matches the windy wood of the trees just behind it. Metal or plastic here would feel industrial and out of place, but this handrail system for decks provides the perfect barrier between the home and the mountains beyond.
These sturdy styles allow you to get as close to nature as possible, while still also staying safe. What could be better than enjoying your morning coffee to this beautiful view? Even looking out your window allows you to see only nature, thanks to these natural deck hand rails.
These wooden deck handrails are often applied to outdoor spaces, and aren’t confined to being used on decks alone. They spruce up a covered porch, or timber frame and add a rustic touch to the any design. The natural red color can be preserved with a penetrating stain or they can weather to a distinct silvery tone.
Mountain Laurel Handrails are works of art. They are handmade with sticks and branches, each one with its own unique bends and curves, artfully woven together and attached to two-by-fours of red cedar on top and bottom. Each section has special details that differentiate it from the pack. The end result is one-of-a-kind custom railing with a rustic, almost otherworldly quality.
Just take a look at these installed at this home in the mountains of North Georgia. Against such a breathtaking mountain view, you can almost imagine that you’ve been whisked away to your own private retreat.
One of the beauties of Mountain Laurel Handrails is that the appearance changes with the sun at different times of day. In some photos above, you could see the sun, but with the shadows in this picture, you can see the beauty of the intricate woodwork against the bright background of the mountains. You’ll love watching the shadows on the ground change as the sun moves through the branches throughout the day!
The ideal handrail is one that serves as a protective border but at the same time it should be an extension of the property into nature. This may sound like a contradiction in terms but when done correctly it is a powerful tool in creating a peaceful area where you can relax at home while enjoying the peace and tranquility of nature. It is the ideal way of allowing nature to flow into the living area.
Upgrade an existing deck with the addition of handrails, and provide a subtle change that provides a different feel than traditional. Made form real wood and branches, they can be painted or stained to compliment whatever colors your desire. Add some outdoor furniture and relax in style. No two railings are the same, as each features an intricate web of twined branches that twist and turn in beautiful designs that can update and make your home shine.
Railing and Deck Decor for the Seasons
A deck dressed with Mountain Laurel Handrails is lovely to look at, and it’s a real delight when decorated for the seasons. We recently constructed and shipped these railings for a homeowner who sent us these pictures of her finished deck–all decked out for autumn!
Colorful fall flowers, potted plants and other ornamentals from nature pair perfectly with organic, branch balusters. Let’s look closer at the railing and deck décor.
Glancing through the window pops of violet, mauve, orange and yellow dot the deck. It’s almost as if this festive fall display becomes a part of the home’s interior. In this cozy country setting, vertical pickets or metal rods just wouldn’t offer the same visual appeal as this railing’s intertwining twigs covered in bark. To enhance to the railing and deck décor, metal caps accent the top of every newel post. The homeowner then adds whimsical wicker furniture to create an inviting outdoor space to relax, entertain and enjoy!
As you can see in these pictures, a deck enclosed with natural branches doesn’t need big, bold or expensive railing and deck decor. The branches themselves create an eye-catching art form. Simply adding a few seasonal decorations, such as green potted plants, beautiful blooms and pumpkins, creates an incredible view.
This is what the homeowner, Joy, had to say:
We love our new deck with our Mountain Laurel Railings! We get compliments on them often. Thanks for checking on our results. I’m sending you a couple of photos we took this fall.
Joy’s deck and handrails look beautiful with her fall decorations. And we would enjoy hearing and seeing what she has in store for the upcoming winter holidays!
We hope these pictures inspire you if you’re thinking about purchasing a new or updating a timeworn railing. Durable Mountain Laurel Handrails weather the four seasons well. And of course, seasonal railing and deck décor complement the handrails beautifully. Share some of your deck decorating ideas for the holidays!
