Take your deck and railings to the next level

While it may not feel like it when there’s a chill in the air and snow on the ground, the winter months do eventually come to an end. And with that end comes a new beginning to spend more time outside on your deck making new memories with friends and family. So when spring is in the air, it’s time to spruce up the outdoor area of your home. Beyond the traditional spring cleaning, consider how certain details can make all the difference. These are the outdoor accents you need to take your deck to the next level.


The right railing can do amazing things for your deck. Not only does it make it safer for friends, family, and pets, but railing helps complete the space so it feels even more like the extension of your home that it is. RDI railing comes in a variety of styles and materials, too. From Avalon aluminum railing and Transform composite railing, to Metal Works Excalibur steel railing and a variety of vinyl railing options, there’s sure to be one that fits perfectly with your deck. If you’re not sure which railing is right for your home, take our quiz to find out.


RDI lighting can make a huge difference in the amount of time you spend in your outdoor space. Spring may have warm afternoons for day-time lounging on your deck, but the evenings aren’t long just yet. Adding RDI lighting to your railings and deck can increase the opportunities you have to spend time outside. Choose from lighted post caps, side/stair lights, dome lights, and under-rail lights. The best part? You can manage all of your RDI lighting from the palm of your hand with the free SmartPower 50 app. Spring just got a whole lot brighter.

Put the final touch on your deck with RDI lattice this spring. Easy to install with connecting panels, color-matched screws, and end caps that polish it all off, lattice can help you hide the space under your deck or porch from animals, nosy neighbors, or whoever may be looking. Plus, this lattice looks like wood, but it won’t require any sanding, staining, or painting, and it’ll withstand all of the elements nature throws your way.

Shower Kits

Depending on where you live, spring may not be the best season to shower outside. However, there’s no better time to prepare for the warm summer months than the weeks leading up to them. Whether you have a pool, live near the beach, or just want an extra place to rinse away the day’s dirt, an outdoor shower kit is the perfect addition to an outdoor space. Choose from the basic option or the combo kit to create the perfect outdoor shower for your home. The low-maintenance vinyl material is easy to install and comes with a lifetime limited warranty so you can rest assured it’ll be ready to use every year.

Preparing your outdoor space for spring means more than simply dusting off the deck and uncovering the patio furniture. With the addition of a few accents, your deck will not only be ready for the warm weather months, but it’ll feel like a brand new space ready for a season of fun.
