One place to start when considering custom deck options is the railing. Standard wooden slats are fine, but what about a curved design, or combining aluminum piping with wood, for a sleek, modern touch?
Moving to the interior of the deck, benches are hugely popular custom deck features because of their versatility and ease of installation. Similarly, built-in planters can be a great touch to add color and life to your deck.
Extend your deck's usefulness past sundown with some accent lighting—kerosene lamps, candles or string lights can work, or you can go with a full outdoor lighting kit, set on a timer or even powered by the sun.
