Your Guide To Step, Deck, Patio & Barbecue Lighting

Your backyard is an extension of your home, and your deck and patio should be just as inviting as your interior. Who doesn’t like to unwind and relax on a warm summer night? Grilling dinner outside can be a challenge when you lack proper outdoor lighting. These solutions will help you make the right choice for your home.

Step Lighting

Recessed step lighting will illuminate your deck’s staircase and make sure it’s always well-lit and safe to walk on at night. Chances are that you’ll spend a lot of time moving up and down the steps throughout the summer as you cook, prepare and relax with your family and friends.

The backyard is a central hub for summer fun, so your step lighting should be ambient but bright. Soft but persistent illumination fixed into the deck will ensure that everyone is always able to move safely throughout the night.

Deck Lighting Options

Depending on your personal taste, there are a variety of deck lighting solutions to choose from. You may want to install LED string lights around the posts or install under-rail deck lights that offer a soft warmth to any space.

You may also prefer something more sleek and modern, such as recessed deck lighting with overhead protection.

Seat-wall lights are great selections for multi-level homes with outdoor columns. You could also install in-floor lighting, which comes in a selection of low-voltage options that give off just enough glow to create a warm, inviting space.

Barbecue and Outdoor Grill Lighting

If you have an outdoor kitchen, you can take your barbecues to the next level by installing under-counter lighting. For the main attraction, consider an adjustable overhead LED grill light that can withstand hot temperatures and are water-resistant.

Most grill lights are adjustable, which means you can keep them if you upgrade and even take them on the road or bring along to a vacation home.
