The ideal place to be on a warm summer evening is sitting and relaxing on the decking in your garden. Installing some decking lights can add to the perfect ambiance and there are a host of different types of lights that are suitable for all kinds of homes. If you are entertaining, a well lit deck will help whether you are barbecuing or having drinks. Lights are also a practical choice around steps or over seats and if you have a hot tub, stylish lighting that delivers a warm glow will help to make the evening perfect.
If your decking is close to the home you can add lighting on walls or fences and fitting lights to stair risers is an excellent way to illuminate the deck. Recessed lights provide a lovely glow without intruding on the design of the entertainment area and you can also feature lights under hand rails or on the top of posts. Dimmer switches can also be an simple way of controlling the exact amount of light you require and can be fitted to exterior lights with excellent results. All decking lights should be weatherproof and rated for out of doors use.
