Glass balusters are a good choice when you want to eliminate the distinction between the deck and the surrounding area. This deck railing design, along with solid glass panels, is a good choice when you want to emphasize the view from the deck and interfere with it as minimally as possible. Full height and width glass panels can also be nice in a mountain home to shield guests on the deck from some of the harsher elements.

Wood railing designs range from common and everyday to creative and extraordinary. Skilled carpenters can create masterpieces in wood that are memorable to all those who view them. Woodwork is a form of expression that is really a visual art. Although wood is common and can be lackluster, in the hands of a professional carpenter wood can be transformed into glowing artwork.

Here is a beautiful shot of an outdoor deck railing designs. I’m not sure where it is but it seems to be high in a tower looking back down towards the earth. I really like the geometric nature of this composition especially the way that the sun casts the shadow of the pattern of the railing grid on the textured metal walkway. It’s really a beautiful piece!
