Accent Lighting for Your Deck

Integrated with posts, railings, and stair risers, a new generation of exterior-light fixtures provides a wide range of deck-lighting options

Deck illumination falls into three key categories: safety lighting, task lighting, and security lighting. Accent lighting for decks can serve all those functions, depending on how it is deployed. Assistant editor Justin Fink takes a look at what it takes to assemble an accent-lighting scheme for a deck, including power sources, wire connectors, bulb types, light-mounting options, and tips for lighting deck stairs. The article includes source listings for a variety of deck-lighting manufacturers.
