Deck Lighting

Whether you’re designing a new custom deck or looking for ways to improve your current deck, deck lighting is an important element to include in your deck plans. Outdoor Environments, working in conjunction with a variety of professionals in this field, can design a deck lighting package that will complement and enhance your outdoor living space.

Deck lighting provides a number of benefits. The most obvious benefit is that deck lighting will allow you to extend the use of your deck beyond sunset.  Deck lighting can also be used to enhance safety and security. Deck lighting is also a great way to create ambiance, accent your landscaping, and show off your custom deck.

As with the interior of your home, exterior lighting should include a combination of lighting styles to accommodate different purposes. The types and number of lights you need for your deck lighting will depend on the size of your custom deck and how you plan to use it. Spots lights can be used in task areas, such as outdoor kitchens. Low lighting creates a soft, inviting illumination in seating areas. Recessed lighting incorporated into steps and lights placed around walkways and doorways provide safety.


Post and rail light fixtures illuminate your deck boundaries.  Hanging lights and wall sconces are great options to add ambiance. Deck lighting can even be incorporated into built-in planter boxes on your custom deck. Outdoor Environments will work with you to create the perfect deck lighting configuration for your custom deck.

Low-voltage lighting is best for deck lighting. It illuminates your custom deck without being overpowering or making it difficult to enjoy the night sky. This type of lighting will also prevent you from annoying your neighbors with intrusive exterior lighting. Low-voltage deck lighting, along with LED deck lighting and solar-powered deck lighting, also offer the benefit of being energy efficient.
