One of the biggest benefits to living in Florida is the opportunity we have of spending time outside all year long. When you have an outdoor space, it gives you a place that you can entertain for endless hours, even into the evening. The only way that you can truly enjoy your deck or outdoor space is to have the appropriate lighting that makes that possible. Burley Electrical Services is here to share different lighting solutions that can allow you to enjoy your deck clear into the evening.
How to Choose Lighting Solutions for Your Deck
When it comes to the lighting on your deck, it will greatly depend on the deck design you are working with. There isn’t a one size fits all lighting system that will work with every deck. You will want the lighting on your deck to fit all the needs that you have. These can vary greatly between homeowners as well as different deck designs.
Outdoor Stair Lighting
After the sun goes down, if you don’t have lighting on the stairs leading to your deck, it can be a real hazard. The best way to illuminate your deck stairs is to install lighting directly on them. There are a couple of ways that you can achieve this: you can install lighting on the sides of each stair, or underneath the lip of each stair. This will keep focusing the lighting in a downward direction and will alert anybody using them that they need to be ready to take a step down.
Recessed Deck Floor Lighting
If you have a deck overhand, deck recessed lighting can be a great option for you. This can only be done if you have a covered deck. You don’t want to install this lighting if there isn’t some protection for the surface of your deck. This is a great way to add visibility to your deck and even highlight different areas that make your deck look more inviting and appealing.
LED Deck Post Lights
Many people choose deck post lighting to help illuminate your deck. You can choose from a variety of different deck post lighting styles that include copper, aluminum, stainless steel and even plastic. You need to make sure that your lighting is still directed in a downward position so that the walkways and foot traffic on your deck is more obvious to those spending time out there after dark.
Deck Rail Lights
If you are looking for a way to illuminate the rails on your deck, you can choose have deck rail lighting installed which is flush with your deck rails. This can be helpful when you are trying to let people know there is a rail there to offer protection as well as support when moving around the deck.
