What is the Difference between Balusters and Balustrades?

Archer curved steel deck balustersWhen looking to improve the appearance of your deck, metal balusters can be a great way to add some elegance to your home. Balusters are the vertical, vase-like posts on railings, not to be confused with balustrades, which are the railings themselves.

The words have French, Italian, Latin, and Greek origins and can come in a variety of different shapes. A deck baluster will usually blend in with the architecture of the house, making it a small, yet significant piece to the overall look.

Though these are not always the focal point of a deck or structure, balusters and balustrades provide an architectural elegance that enhances the exterior design of homes, hotels, restaurants, marinas and more. At Union Metal Works, we sell a variety of beautiful white, bronze, or black metal balusters to match your deck’s theme. You can even mix and match colors with the balustrades to create a look that is truly unique to your home.
