Perhaps no part of a deck is more important to illuminate than transition points. Transition points include stairs, railings, and other points of elevation change or where potential obstacles might be introduced. Stairs, in particular, are important to keep well-lit with deck lights to avoid any unfortunate spills. Luckily, we have the deck stair lighting inspiration you need to keep your steps secure long after the sun sets.
Why You Should Choose Deck Stair Lighting
Your outdoor living space should be designed to allow for optimal enjoyment, no matter the natural lighting situation. In addition to the flexibility to continue enjoying your deck after dark, deck stair lighting delivers style, safety, and value benefits.
Deck Stair Lighting Brings Style, Safety & Value to Your Deck
Spotlights Your Design
Deck stair lighting showcases one of the major architectural elements of your deck while visually balancing other elements like railings or furniture. The result? Trend-right dimensionality.
Deck stairs lights illuminate your steps, as well as those of your family and friends – meaning they lock in the safety and peace of mind you need.
Outperforms Temporary Lights
While it may be tempting to opt for temporary solutions like lanterns or string lights, inclement weather can make quick work of such lighting. Avoid regularly replacing your outdoor illumination with our permanent picks.
