While you’ll find conventional lights out there that mount to walls around the deck, or uprights on the deck, there are also styles designed to be mounted to the floor of the deck. These are generally flat in design, with disc-shaped LED lights that emit blue, cool white or warm white light depending on your goals and the overall aesthetic of your outdoor space. Some deck lights can be "daisy chained" together, and then the entire chain can be connected to a power source. There are also solar deck lights on offer if you don’t want to connect to the mains.
In fact, we are sure there are many sensational scenarios you will be just buzzing to try out. Incidentally, you may be pleased to know that the majority of outdoor illumination these days is of the low voltage variety. Happily, this not only makes the lighting safer to work with but also far less expensive when it comes to your utility bill.
Highlight an outdoor dining table or seating on a patio area for reclining with a drink at the end of the day. You can achieve this by strapping spot lights onto overhead trellising or the sturdy branches of a nearby tree. This way the light will shine downwards, avoiding glare in the eyes and help create more of a cosy and intimate atmosphere. In the following image the downlighters work beautifully hung from the overhead roofing.
Whether you choose to hang lights, mount them to the siding or both, it’s important to choose a style that best suits you and the home. Although having proper outdoor lighting plays a significant role in safety, don’t let that be your only consideration. This is the time to be creative.
