Deck Design Trends: Industrial Chic

May 31, 2019

A careful balance of vintage and contemporary, raw and refined—industrial chic effortlessly brings multiple styles together. This decking trend gives a nod to old factories with elements like concrete and railroad-like lines, yet uses luxurious finishes and patterns to make your outdoor space comfortably elegant.

1. Set the Stage

Sophisticated and tastefully worn, Weathered Teak is a great starting point for this look. Add to the repurposed vibe with multi-width deck boards—they also look great in darker colors.


2. Add an Inlay

The playful repitition of a Framed Diagonal Inlay deck pattern balances some of the heavier elements of this look and defines areas of your deck.


3. Streamline Your Rails

Utilitarian at its most stylish, our Contemporary Rail in black is bold yet refined.


4. Carry the Look to Lighting

A practical contrast to exposed bulbs, try embedded riser lighting in old-meets-new Architectural Bronze.


5. Try Functional Landscaping

Add privacy and green to your space with plants like Arborvitae trees, which double as a cool fence alternative.


6. See Double

Striped textiles echo the railing lines to tie everything together, while neutral tones keep it all grounded
