Need aesthetic advice re: deck!

Hello everyone,

This summer we built a deck and it was one of my first deck I've ever built. Anyways we're just doing finishing touches but I need your advice. Can I get some suggestions on how to give my deck that finished look. I was thinking adding railing caps at the front facing the neighbors, but I don't know. I also want to hide the exposed cuts of the railing panels on the post, but I don't know how to do it nicely. Thanks!!

Link didn't work. There are some post caps that light when it gets dark. I had a boss who always used a router on the railings.

As you can witness in the picture, I haven't put up railing caps yet... because idk how to put them nicely that it will give it a finished look. I feel it'll be tough to notch out the perfect shape around the posts that protrude upward with railing caps.... i was thinking doing something like this to them: Furniture: Attractive Nice Adorable Cool Amazing Wonderful Horizontal Deck Railing With With Wooden Flooring Design And Nice Wooden Deck, Nice Concept and Design of Horizontal Deck Railing for Home horizontal metal deck railings horizontal deck raili

but i have the three posts going upward which is what's holding me back. The reason the three posts are there is because i was going to install aircraft cable and hang a curtain up.

The caps that I mentioned won't work on your deck.
