Decking balustrade ideas are a great way to enhance existing or new decking and give it that finishing touch. Both practical and stylish, there are all kinds of materials and types to choose from — including simple glass designs, traditional timber kits and metal railing.

Introducing balustrades or railings into your garden decking ideas is sure to create a united and curated scheme while ensuring it is safe to use (some decks might require them to meet Building Regulations).
