Deck Lighting Ideas to Transform Your Outdoor Space

1. Install permanent downlighters on a wall.

You can use LED lights, a great time saver for an outdoor space, but you need to ensure that the lights are up high enough. You will also need to measure your distance and choose the number of lights you need before installing them.

All you need to do is put them on the ground and let them charge during the day. Solar lights are trendy in outdoor spaces like decks or gardens because they look good and don’t require wiring. We can work with you to pick a solar system that works for your space.

4. Spark up a firepit for a warming glow.

To create a great atmosphere on your deck, you should use firepits. You can choose between many different designs, but the main idea is to have one to enjoy the warm evenings or cool mornings. It’s an excellent choice for entertaining guests and relaxing after a long day outside. Make sure you install some benching around it to create a nice place to sit and enjoy the fire.

5. Have floor lights built-in.

If you want a simple, neat, and functional way to light up your outdoor space, you should use recessed floor lights. These lights will give your deck a clean look, which is a great way to create a friendly atmosphere. You can also place them under pergolas or on the fence. You will need to install some wires to make it work, but this is very easy and will look amazing.

6. Install ceiling lights on your deck.
