Reasons To Add Deck Lighting

Having a deck opens up new possibilities for relaxing, entertaining, and just living life to the fullest. But why should the fun have to end when the sun goes down? This guide will show you the four reasons why adding deck lighting to your deck is a worthwhile investment.

Accent Your Home's Style

Your deck is a big investment in your home, and even more than that, it’s a reflection of your tastes and personality. Every deck is different, so why not use accent lighting to highlight what’s special about yours? Rail lights, directional lights, and post cap lights all let your personal taste shine alongside your deck.


Set the Mood

A deck can be a place to unwind, or it can be party central. Setting the right mood for fun or relaxation is more important than you might think - the right amount of brightness, the right color, and having the power to adapt on the fly is essential. And that flood light that comes on automatically near the garage door isn’t going to cut it! A wireless dimmer, warm LED lights, and a timer give you control to set the right mood on your deck.

Enjoy the Deck Day or Night

As the year ends and the days grow shorter and shorter, the amount of time you have to spend on your deck shortens, too. While those of us in colder climates generally retreat indoors during the winter months, many people live in a climate that encourages year-round deck use. But if the sun sets before 5pm, you’re going to need deck lighting, otherwise you’ll be sitting in the dark. Shine some light on your deck with up/down accent lights, or petite directional LED lights to keep the fun going all year round.


Enhance Deck Safety

Deck lighting makes your deck safer. Casting light on your stairs, on your railings, or along a paved path keeps you, your family, and your friends safe on your deck, even at night. Stair lighting, like recessed riser lights, rail lighting, or path lighting are all great for keeping the night eventful... for all the right reasons.

Deck lighting serves a variety of functions all at once. Whether it’s there because of shorter days, to accent your deck’s features, to set the mood, or to keep the party safe, deck lighting enhances your deck day in and day out.
