Deck Components and Accessories

Learn about deck components and accessories that are best suited to your deck

The right accessories and components will take your deck to new heights, even if it's at ground level.

A deck can make a spectacular addition to any outdoor living space, and it can significantly increase the overall value of a home. The right combination of deck accessories can go even farther toward creating the outdoor oasis every homeowner dreams of owning.

Deck furniture comes in many varieties, the most popular of which are wood and wicker. Generally speaking, wooden deck furniture will prove more expensive, but high quality wicker can cost a pretty penny as well. The advantage of wicker is that it's lightweight, making for easy layout reconfiguration, and it can be easily washed with soap and water. Tables, chairs and benches make great deck accessories and they create a welcoming feeling for your deck.

If you're looking to enhance the chilled-out vibe on your deck, consider a portable hammock as a deck accessory. Several manufacturers make these, and they can be positioned anywhere on your deck, where they'll surely be popular with anyone responsible for yard work (or housework, or homework for that matter).

Depending on the configuration of your deck, you might want to consider a cedar trellis as a deck accessory. These decorative pieces can provide great foundations for climbing vines, and they can disguise outdoor eyesores like air conditioning units or basement storm doors.

Finally, deck or patio lights can be a great addition to your deck, brightening your outdoor living space and creating a great nighttime option for barbecues and parties. Some even have a heating feature for those cool fall and winter nights.
