Introduction to Deck and Solar Lights
Deck and patio lights are perfect for homes with these outdoor areas. There are many advantages to installing deck lights and when properly lit decks and patios are great for entertaining at night, drinks, family dinners and games. When not lit properly (exterior deck lights might be too dim or too bright and harsh on the eyes at night) your deck will never live up to its full potential and you’ll only be able to enjoy it during the daytime hours. And if you have a green thumb garden deck lights let you show off your beautiful plants and flowers at night.
Different Types and Applications of Deck Lighting
Outdoor deck lights are versatile fixtures that you can use in several outdoor areas including gazebos, gardens, patios and sheds, and for many different purposes. They look beautiful since they are almost “built in” (i.e., flush mount deck lights) and with their functionality quickly and easily enhance the beauty of your deck, garden, patio and any other outdoor space.
Deck lights range from $50 - $1000 depending on your outdoor deck/patio lights requirements. The height of these lights range from 0 to 65 inches tall. When it comes to style for exterior deck lights you can choose from modern contemporary, traditional and transitional. Finishes available include bronze, satin nickel and white tones; colors offered are clear, crystal and white. You should know your voltage type: whether line or low voltages. And bulb types offered include LED, incandescent, halogen and fluorescent. Capitol Lighting carries several brands including Kichler, Hinkley Lighting, Eurofase Lighting and Progress Lighting.
Design and Installation of Exterior Deck Lights
Outdoor deck, garden and patio lights are often installed in areas where standard well lighting would be out of place. And since you don’t need a roof or ceiling to install these lighting fixtures they can be placed in less typical positions. Outside deck lights are typically installed against (installed into) a wood or brick pier or post on the deck (and some are called post deck lights). It’s also possible to have a spotlight coming off a deck pier/post. The wiring can be kept hidden underneath the ground or the deck itself to keep your yard and deck space looking tidy. And deck lighting is typically connected to an underground electrical source. But if you’re installing solar powered deck lights you wouldn’t need any wiring. Exterior deck lights are also available in energy efficient LED versions that provide cost savings over the long term.
