If you’re wanting to extend use of your outdoor area past sunset hours, it’s a good idea to think about lighting options available for your deck – both for design and safety purposes.
Some things to consider when choosing lighting include: subtlety (as to not anger your neighbors with bright lights at all hours), durability, and adaptability to your theme and décor.
It’s important to remember that lights for your deck area will be exposed to the elements – so you need something durable enough to handle severe heat, cold, and anything in between.
Lucky for you there is a large variety of options available these days for deck posts, railings, stair risers, and more.
Although custom designs are an option if you have the budget, pre-packaged, easy-to-install kits are available at mainstream hardware stores as well. Which option is right for you? That depends on your design, budget, and needs. But one thing is certain – there is an option for EVERYONE!
