Deck and Accent Lighting

Deck lighting is not only a practical addition to your outdoor space but also a design element that enhances the ambiance and safety of your deck area. Whether you’re hosting evening gatherings, enjoying quiet nights under the stars, or simply adding visual interest to your outdoor oasis, the right deck lighting can elevate your experience and create a welcoming atmosphere for you and your guests.

Types of Deck Lighting

Deck lighting isn’t just for railings and stairs anymore! Homeowners are getting creative with deck lighting placement, by incorporating innovative solutions that offer precise lighting to take full advantage of their deck design. Do you have an outdoor kitchen or bbq area? You can enhance your working space at night by installing custom lighting underneath your countertop prep areas, or in-floor lighting surrounding the grill area. You can also consider adding recessed deck lighting to covered areas, or even installing lights into the structure of your pergola. And by lighting up a designated pathway to surround your deck, you can illuminate a safe path to your outdoor kitchen, pool area, or garden seating area, while minimizing tripping hazards.

Whatever option you choose, below are a few of our favorite options for seamless, beautiful, and efficient deck lighting. 

Recessed Deck Lights

These sleek and low-profile lights are installed flush with the surface of your deck, providing subtle illumination without obstructing the view or detracting from the deck’s aesthetics. Recessed deck lights are ideal for highlighting pathways, stairways, and architectural features while creating a seamless and polished look.

Deck Railing Light

Under Rail Lights

Under rail lights are installed beneath the railing of your deck, casting a soft and inviting glow along the perimeter of the space.

Why Should You Add Deck Lighting?

When you add the right deck lighting into your outdoor living space, you’ll have the freedom to enjoy your deck even as the first leaves begin to fall in autumn, and long summer days begin to fade into long winter nights. Deck lighting creates a welcoming environment, an appealing visual aesthetic, and enhances the safety of your backyard retreat for your family, friends, and guests. In additional to providing a safer nighttime environment, carefully planned deck lighting will also improve the value of your home and provide enhanced security, as well-lit outdoor areas are typically a crime deterrent.

Your ideal deck lighting can be incorporated into the design of your new custom deck in a way that enriches the beauty of your deck, as well as the beauty of your natural surroundings. We’ll recommend unique lighting solutions that work within your deck design to enhance safety and allow you to enjoy the evening hours in style.

Deck Lighting Can Be Elegant And Effective

Deck lighting never needs to be harsh to be effective, it can be as bright or as subtle as you need it to be. You’ve worked hard on designing the perfect deck, and the right lighting strategy will enhance the beauty, not detract from it. We offer a number of unobtrusive lighting options that will wow your guests and add a cozy ambiance to your outdoor entertaining area.

For example, you can choose to highlight the main seating area, and then add subtle lighting to surround your deck railing, stairs and other less visible areas, all seamlessly incorporated into your deck with no visible wiring. You can even add a little fun to your deck lighting by incorporating whimsical lighting styles to add a festive element for hosting parties or events.
