No rails on a deck might sound odd but it’s actually more normal than you think. This platform deck has no rails and it looks amazing. Excluding rails keeps your space opened up and allows you to see directly into your yard. This deck is made of pressure-treated pine and it has a herringbone pattern which is going to draw attention to the center. Around the deck, you will notice that the skirting is in a horizontal pattern rather than vertical. Adding a solid horizontal skirting gives the deck a unique design element and it helps to keep any animals from getting below. This pressure-treated pine deck was built & designed by Downers Grove designer Archadeck of Chicagoland.
