Three Stylish and Functional Deck Additions

Here are just three ideas for additions to your deck.

It may be getting cooler outside, but it’s not too late to take advantage of your outdoor space. Whether you’ve enjoyed a deck for years or are planning to install one, there are many different ways to make it your own. Here are just three ideas for additions to your deck.


Ever hosted a fun outdoor party that you didn’t want to end? Or do you prefer to enjoy quiet evenings out in the fresh air with your favorite book? Whatever the reason, deck lighting allows you to enjoy your deck at all times of the day. The best part of lighting is that it comes in an incredible variety of styles and colors. Built-in recessed lighting is good for adding safety to steps. Or you can enjoy a stylish pendant light or string lights from overhead. You can set the right mood for your outdoor space with deck lighting.


Adding railing to your deck is the perfect way to increase both its style and safety. Deck railings are ideal alongside stairs or as a fence around the edge if you have a raised platform. Then you’ll have peace of mind that you, your family, and guests will be protected from falling. For design, you can go for an organic look, like composite or wood that’s stained to match the rest of your deck. By contrast, you can pick a metal railing as an accent.

Fire Pit

It’s not what most people think of adding to their decks, but a fire pit could be perfect for several reasons. It’s an additional source of light and heat, and you can enjoy your deck even on chilly autumn evenings. And with the right supervision for kids, your family, and friends who have a blast roasting marshmallows. A fire pit is a great focal point for your deck design, and you can plan how you arrange furniture and other things around it.
