Creative Glass Railing Ideas For Your Deck

Decks add charm and value to your property and they become a perfect relaxation and entertainment space. Most decks are built a certain height and it’s best to install a railing along the periphery of this feature. Not only does it add dimension to the installation, but to its safety as well. Property owners look for simple yet elegant railings that will be easy to maintain and durable too, and this is where glass railings or balustrades come in.

Design Ideas

These features look stunning in any type of setting and complement the look and ambience of traditional as well as contemporary home and residential designs. This means, a glass fence won’t mar the appearance of your existing deck space and there are a number of creative glass railing ideas for your deck that you can choose from, such as:

#1 Frameless Glass Balustrade With Connecting Stairs Balustrades

While some decks are hardly a foot high from ground level, others may be at a much greater height. In this case, you would have stairs leading into the yard from the upper level of the deck. It’s never a good idea to keep the edges of either the raised deck or the steps unprotected as that can lead to accidents.

Installing a frameless balustrade along the deck as well as the stairs is a good way to add some form to the structure and improve its safety. In this design, the railing that runs along the stairs is a continuation of the one that protects the deck and it provides a very seamless and clear look.

#2 Glass Balustrade For Multi-Level Deck

Some homes have multi-level decks. These could be built as standalone features around the pool or as an extension of living and bedroom spaces that are at different levels in the structure. This type of decking looks stunning and unique and you can add to their appeal by installing a semi-framed glass balustrade on them. If you prefer a more open look and want a clear view of the surroundings and landscaping, you can choose to get clear glass installations for these features. On the other hand, if you need a certain level of privacy in any of these areas (like the bedroom decks), you can opt for tinted or frosted glass panels. These semi-frameless structures are extremely resilient and will last for a number of years with very basic maintenance.

Glass Balustrades For Pool Decking

Many people like to have decks built around their swimming pools and at times these structures may have multiple levels as well. These installations can also benefit from glass balustrades and railings; they add to the safety of the deck and you don’t have to worry about your kids accidently falling off of the deck while playing or walking around the pool space.

If you also have some sunning areas on the deck near the pool, where you require some privacy, you can opt for acid-stained glass or frosted glass. If you prefer, the same type of glass panels can be used along the periphery of the decks that lead out of the living areas and connect to the multi-levelled pool deck.
