One of the commonly overlooked features of a deck is deck lighting. Deck lighting can take your deck to the next level. There are many reasons why deck lighting is an important feature of your home. Four reasons we can recommend deck lighting are:
- Safety – Deck lighting helps to illuminate your deck, the area around your deck, and the stairs or pathway leading to your deck. This helps you, your family, and your guests to be able to see better when its dark and can help to prevent accidental trips and spills.
- Curb Appeal – Deck lighting is beautiful and adds value to your home and increases curb appeal. The lighting adds depth and dimension to your home and deck.
- Discourage Intruders – Intruders typically will choose a home that is not well-lit because it is easier to sneak around in the dark. When a home is well-lit outside, then a potential intruder is more likely to not target your home and move on to a more discrete location.
- Outdoor Living – Your deck is meant to be used and should be used both during the day and in the evening, after the sun has gone down. The best and safest way to use your deck after dark is to have deck lighting installed.
