  • Draw the layout of your deck.
  • Designate the spots to light up, such as on the risers, under the rails, and any nooks and crannies along the deck. Consider the movement of foot traffic and plan for the functionality the extra recessed deck lighting can bring.
  • Decide on the ambiance of the deck or that the step lights will blend well with the current look and feel of the area.
  • More importantly, take the correct measurements of the stair boards, etc. before you order the light fixtures.
