Adding a beautiful deck is an amazing way to upgrade your outdoor space and add to the living space of your home. With the right deck lighting, your deck will not only look beautiful after the sun sets, but it will also allow you to get the most enjoyment out of your deck after dark. If you’re currently designing a new deck you may like to add lighting to your designs or if you are looking at repairing your current deck you may want to think about the addition of lighting so that you can take the full advantage of your deck after dusk.
What are the benefits of home deck lighting?
Safety and security while enjoying your deck
An appealing benefit of having deck lighting is that safe and secure feeling of having it lit up after dark. If your deck includes stairs, or you have quite a bit of outdoor furniture, the last thing you want is yourself or a guest being injured by tripping in the dark. In addition to general hazards, deck lighting can help prevent crime as burglars are less likely to approach an area that is well lit up.
Added beauty and aesthetics to your deck design
Adding deck lighting will add beauty and aesthetics to your deck design as well as enhancing the ambiance of your outdoor living area. You can create and change the mood of your outdoor area based on your lighting. Whether that be a romantic evening for two, or a vibrant birthday dinner with friends and family. It will also enhance your street appeal and add value to your home.
Entertaining guests on your deck
Your deck is your outdoor living area and an extension to your home. It is the perfect place to entertain guests all year round with the right lighting. Lighting will enhance the ambience, create the desired mood and make your home appear more inviting. Adding some coloured lights can even add some fun and festivity to your occasion.
Using your deck day and night
One of the biggest benefits of deck lighting is it gives you the opportunity to enjoy your outdoor space not just during the day, but also at night.
Being able to use your deck for more hours of the day all year round adds more value to the investment you have spent in your home.
