April 3, 2009, Newsletter Issue #160: Deck Lighting

Tip of the Week

Your deck is probably one of the more fun parts of your home. Perhaps you use it for barbecues or to hold a hot tub. Good deck lighting can showcase your deck, while keeping you and your guests safe.

Focus accent lights on tricky areas like walkways and stairs. Recessed deck lighting -- lights that are set into the surface of the deck, and are strong enough to be stepped on -- is a great way to mark the edges of a deck (also useful for boat docks!).

For security's sake, you may want to invest in low-voltage deck lights that automatically shut themselves off at dawn and on at dusk. Solar-powered deck lights may be an even more economical choice.
