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. Look to these deck lighting options to find the right fit for your space.
Where Deck Lighting Works Best
Outdoor lighting, specifically deck and patio step lights, are especially helpful when installed by stairs, handrails and around gazebos. Deck lighting in these outdoor living areas help to establish atmosphere and provide an element of much-needed safety, while also pairing well with existing outdoor fixtures. Deck lights help define patio perimeters and can mount directly onto brick, vinyl and wood columns, making installation easy. The shapes and styles of these fixtures either offer downlighting or uplighting for the deck or patio -- remember, downlights provide safety while uplights provide drama. With well-chosen deck and step lights, you'll create a safe and stylish outdoor living space.

How to Choose the Best Deck Lights

Begin with the intent of the light fixture -- will it be used for dramatic uplighting or safety-oriented downlighting? There are a number of options to accommodate either purpose. Next, refine your options by the fixtures that fit your style preferences. Remember to try to keep a cohesive design among colors and finishes of your outdoor and landscape lighting.
