The metal railings around the deck do not disrupt the view and offers a clear view of the water. It's a perfect place to relax and entertain guests. The neutral color palette of the home continues onto the outdoor space, tying the indoor space to the outdoor space.
The wooden deck and stairs were problematic for the homeowners in terms of maintenance and also entertaining. So, it was replaced by a new stained concrete deck featuring steel railing and supporting columns to coordinate with other site elements. Designer Heather Garrett and her team increased the deck's footprint by a few feet to allow for additional seating and a convenient grilling space right off of the main living area. The new structure was designed to keep rain out of the patio below, so Garrett and her team seized the opportunity to improve the ground-level patio space by adding motorized screens, five ceiling fans, wood storage for the fire pit and an outdoor television. The aging patio slab was replaced by a new contemporary paver system and its footprint was enlarged to create more area for lounging.
Kona and Redland Rose colors accent this design that uses Azek decking and custom railings with Decorator Frontier glass balusters to create the sense of an outdoor entertainment space nestled deep in the woods.
Railings are wonderful structures to run along stairs, decks, and other places for support when descending or ascending safely. Although initially designed for safety, they are now rang everywhere from rustic and simple, to an elaborate and refined.
A tall wood planter blends in perfectly with the ipe wood decking in this contemporary outdoor space. A custom glass awning above links the planter to the cable railings that are nearly invisible. Cushioned seating provides a comfy conversation spot.
