The popularity of decks has created a niche market of lighting known as outdoor deck lighting. These outdoor deck lights can provide stylish safety lighting to illuminate the edge, steps and railings of decks. Creating a lighting scheme for today's decks that are used as outdoor living rooms and kitchens means illuminating both the architecture of the deck and the necessary safety lighting of the deck steps or stairs. As with all outdoor lighting, outdoor deck lighting is as stylish as it is practical, and available in a style and finish to complement any home's architectural style.
Outdoor deck lights tend to be lowkey in their design so that they can blend in with the deck or stairs. Finishes range from antique bronze and brass to black, white and silver metal finishes like aluminum and stainless steel. Louvered covers allow narrow bands of light while half-moon shaped deck lights create downlight, which pools on the decking or stairs below. Outdoor deck lights can be mounted to posts, steps and in the decking itself, leading to a wide range of styles.
Outdoor deck lights can be used on decks, stairs and steps as well as in pool areas and tiered landscaping designs. Along with outdoor portable lamps
deck lights are key to creating the feeling of an outdoor living room on a deck or patio. Deck lights also provide safety lighting on any outdoor steps or stairs off of a deck or porch as well as in areas around pools or walkways.
