Deck & Step Lights for Outside the Home

Deck and patio lighting makes a backyard more appealing while improving outdoor safety. Related to landscape lighting, deck and outdoor stair lighting also highlights attractive architectural aspects of a home and easily blend with established decor thanks to the range of looks available. There are many LED deck lighting options as well, so having to change out bulbs in hard-to-reach places isn't really an issue. Landscape lights are great companions to deck lights, showcasing trees, shrubs and pathways along the exterior of the home. Consider adding path lights for guided lighting on walkways and safety illumination in the backyard. Add outdoor spotlights to cast dramatic shadows with trees and other elements of the yard. Both options are guaranteed to complement deck lighting and round out outdoor lighting. Finally, check out the assortment of indoor step lights for installation along stairs and baseboards in the hallway.

Choosing the Ideal Deck Step Lighting

Deck step lighting is available in an impressive range of options – from louver-style lights to partially covered step lights – that can make choosing just one style somewhat difficult. There are few things to keep in mind when shopping for the perfect deck lighting for outdoor areas.

The first thing to consider is placement. Start by studying the existing landscape lighting and design. Ideally, it’s best to choose deck step lights that coordinate with the finishes on existing recessed wall lights, pathway lights and outdoor sconces.

Next, determine the type of modern lighting the outdoor space can benefit the most from. For high traffic areas, stair lights with covered LED modules are a great choice since they are impervious to inclement weather and are tamper resistant. Secluded areas should be well-lit to help residents and guests navigate stairwells and minimize safety hazards. Outdoor areas like decks and gardens benefit from decorative step lights that complement existing outdoor furniture and accessories.

Technical considerations such as lamping type and wet or damp ratings are nearly as important as placement and intended use. Outdoor wall lighting is typically either wet or damp rated, ensuring the fixture is able to withstand continuous exposure to the elements. Damp rated step lights should only be used in outdoor applications where direct exposure to rain or water is minimal. For open areas, select deck stop lighting that is UL or ETL Listed Wet. When it comes to light intensity, understanding color temperature is vital. Color temperatures for step lighting generally range from warmer 2700K to 3500K, with the higher number indicating brighter lighting. Outdoor areas like patios, pools and gardens generally work best with brighter color temperatures to maximize safety.
