Show Off Your Personal Style With Custom Balcony Railings

Your home is an extension of yourself. The home is where you likely spend a majority of your time, so you will naturally want the house's layout and design to accurately represent you and make the space somewhere you feel completely comfortable. If you are already replacing the railing on your balcony, deck, or staircase, consider going with a custom balcony design that will help you show off your personal style. Designers can make many different patterns or scenes with railing materials such as metal, wood, or glass. Whether you prefer a trendy style or a classic look, you'll be able to find a unique design that you love.

Contemporary and Modern

If contemporary and modern is more your vibe, consider getting a balcony railing from a material that is made to look thin and sleek. You'll also want to consider the other patterns that are already a part of your decor. Maybe your entire home was constructed with modern architectural design. If you have chunky, blocky patterns in your home, furniture, or art, consider incorporating those into your railing. If your patterns have more curve, you can work with that too. You might feel inclined toward a design that includes people's faces or silhouettes, especially if you have art in that variety. If your style is more minimalist and simple, you'll want as little going on in your railing design as possible. 

Outdoorsy and Adventurous 

If you own a cabin, a balcony railing that features the forest or animals will truly add to the aesthetic. However, you don't have to live in the woods to bring that sense of the great outdoors right to your home. If you love hunting, you can design a railing that features deer, bears, or other animals in the woods. If you have fishing trips planned every other weekend, you can have your railing show fish swimming through a river. If you love to hike and camp, forest or mountain scenery cut into the railing might be perfect for you.

Aquatic and Nautical

If you're the type of person who can't get away from the water, you might already have a beachfront property, and customizing your balcony railing to reflect those interests will make your home stand out. If you are constantly swimming or snorkeling, a design that features ocean animals will be fun. If your personality is more whimsical, consider fantasy sea creatures such as mermaids. A consistent beachgoer might appreciate a railing with starfish on sand, perhaps with the material made to have a sandy texture. A sailor will favor a scene of a boat out on the water with different nautical symbols embedded in the design.

Elegant and Classic

If you prefer a design that is simply classic or elegant, you can still customize it to your tastes. You may like classic wooden railings, but you can explore the different engravings you could include in the wood. If you prefer traditional looks with simple, vertical rails, you can easily add a subtle pattern or design to the railing's outer edge. You can also keep a classic look but use a different kind of material that will be more unique. There are many ways to make old-fashioned designs appear new and fresh, so explore some different ideas!
