Deck Lighting Ideas
Step lighting can be placed on the vertical surface of each step, or under the lip of each step, so that the light from the upper step shines clearly down on the lower step. This is a great way to increase safety, so you and your guests don’t fall and get injured. Deck post lighting comes in many different styles, materials, and colors. Choose from copper, aluminum, stainless steel, and even plastic. These types of lights point down in order to illuminate the footpath. They’re very affordable and easy to install. However, if you love viewing the night sky, it’s possible that they’ll cause light pollution since they’re placed higher than step lighting. You may also consider deck rail lights which sit flush against the railing.
Recessed lighting can also be installed if you have a large overhang on your deck. This type of lighting can illuminate everything below it. It also gives you the option to focus light on a particular area you want to highlight. If you want under-deck recessed lighting, it can be installed if there’s a covered porch above.
