One part of the deck where lighting often comes as an afterthought is the step risers leading up or down from the deck surface. Depending on where you live, some municipalities may have requirements for riser lights. More importantly, adding riser lights to your deck’s steps makes your deck a safer place for everyone.

The vast range of styles available for deck accent lighting allows you to have full control when it comes to highlighting your decks best features. From low-voltage on-post fixtures to under-rail lights, there are endless options available for adding accent lights to an existing deck. The cost of the project will depend on the size of your deck, how many lights you’ll be installing, and whether or not you are hiring a professional to do the installation.
Post cap lights are built-in to the posts on the deck, where they provide much-needed illumination at the edge of your deck. These lights produce a slow glow so they are easy on the eyes, but bright enough to make your deck safer and more elegant at night.
If inadequate lighting forces you to head indoors after dusk, chances are you’re not taking full advantage of your deck. Incorporating lighting options into your deck design or adding lights to an existing deck isn’t difficult to do, but the difference in appearance and functionality can be dramatic.
String lights are inexpensive and they offer an easy way to add some style and charm to your deck without having to call an electrician. These lights are similar to the string lights used to decorate your Christmas tree, however, it’s recommended that you use white lights for a more elegant look. It’s also important to ensure that the lights are approved for outdoor use.
With proper lighting, your deck will not only look beautiful in the evening, but it will also provide you with several additional hours of enjoyment per day. Here are six lighting solutions that will quickly add beauty and functionality to your deck.

Like string lights, stringed lanterns lend a festive feel to the deck and there’s no need to conceal the wiring. Each of these options comes in a wide variety of styles and sizes, including both standard lights that plug directly into an outlet, and low-voltage lights that use 12-volt current. Solar-powered string lights and lanterns are also available, but they are more expensive than the plug-in variety.
Although most deck lighting is designed to illuminate the deck area from the top-down, in-deck lights are installed in the deck boards, thus providing soft, ambient light from the ground-up. In order to set up these lights, the power cord is strung along the bottom of the boards and light emitters are inserted in tiny holes which are drilled into the boards.

Even if your deck wasn’t designed and constructed with built-in step lights, you can easily add motion-activated, battery-operated lights on each step landing. The batteries typically last for up to a year.
One way to add a sense of enchantment to your outdoor living space is to use railing lights and uplighting for trees planted near the deck. These types of lights are low-voltage, meaning they rely on a transformer to convert your home’s standard 120-volt current into 12-volt current. In order to get the most luminosity from these low-power lights, it’s important that the transformer is sized appropriately for the wattage.
