Enhancing Your Waterfront Lifestyle: Transforming Your Dock into an Outdoor Living Space
Do you feel like your dock looks a little plain? 

Do you dream of a fun, stylish dock for the spring?

If you live on lakefront property or have a vacation home on the water, you know how important it is to have the right design and accessories to fully transform and enhance your outdoor space. A large, rectangular dock shape is easy to build and functional, but does it really serve your needs? Or could you have something more unique that will not only impress your friends and neighbors, but also include your outdoor hobbies?

Here are some dock design options that can enhance your outdoor experience:

  • Dock lights: solar dock lights are a great way to ensure you’ll have safe boating experiences even at night. If you want to fish early in the morning or enjoy a sunset boat ride, having lights create ambiance and enhance safety. Solar lights for on top of posts or along pathways are great options. 
  • Bumpers: bumpers work well to not only protect your boat from open corners or posts, but also to coordinate with other color schemes at your lake house.  Coming in four different colors, there are many options to create the look you want!
  • Stairs and Ladders: stairs and ladders can create extra access points to the water anywhere along your dock!  If you have a dog who loves swimming, the stairs are a must have  for it to get on and off the dock with ease.  Creating a swim area for the kids?  Using a ladder allows an easy and safe way to get in and out of the water. Stairs are also much better for elderly folks to get in and out of the water. They come with a hand rail, but extra rails can be added!
  • Flagpoles: a flagpole is a way to really make your dock stand out!  Proudly display your patriotism with the included American flag and easily add additional flags to meet your interests or other passions.  
  • Corner Sections: tired of the kids leaping the gap where your dock turns, or need a good place to mount a ladder?  Corner sections are your answer! These create a cohesive blend from one area of your dock to the other and improve safety as well!
Extra fun options like these can really take your dock to the next level as an outdoor living space, instead of a plain functional dock.
