Positioned at the edge of the deck acting as safeguards—railings are the metaphorical safety net and the literal barrier of protection from falling over and allow for the possibility of canting against it, absorbing the view, at the edge of the deck. Rails with pickets in wooden, aluminium, and steel are most common and are often combined to arrive at interesting results in aesthetic experimenting, which is equally attractive and desirable with glass panels.

Lights are capable of soothing and animating our moods and this facet of ambience lighting can be taken advantage of by embedding lights in well-thought-out positions. Pathway lights and zone lights are crucial to making the deck both safe and well lit for soirees.
