This option offers a long list of benefits. Not only will it help you to stay safer by lighting the way at night, but it also creates mood lighting that’s perfect for backyard get-togethers. If you have a pet that uses the backyard alone at night, the lights can help keep them safe from animals that shy away from light, such as coyotes.
You can choose a deck post lighting in many styles and colors. Available colors include copper, stainless steel, plastic, or aluminum. We suggest that your deck post lights face down so that they can illumine stairs and footpaths at night. Deck post lights are generally affordable and can typically be installed easily, but feel free to call a residential electrician if you need assistance.
If you have a large overhand and you need it lit, consider adding recessed lighting. You’ll have great illumination on your deck, and you can focus on areas that you want to focus on. For example, if you have an outdoor dining area, you can have the lights illuminate them. If you have an outdoor reading area, recessed lighting can keep it lit. Note that this option only works if you have a covered porch above your deck.
You can have deck rail lighting installed flush into your rails. It will actually make the lights themselves completely invisible unless you are looking at them from underneath. These types of lights can focus light downward toward a walkway or stairs. They are also a great way to add ambiance. If you have a space below the deck rail, then these lights could light it up. Otherwise, these are more accent lamps than task lighting.
