Solar Deck Lights

Why You May Want To Check Out Solar Deck Lights?

If your home has a deck with little or no lighting, you may want to check out solar deck lights as a way to brighten up the space.  Maybe you already have some of the conventional light fixtures that run off electricity in and around your deck.  If so, it may still be worth your while to look into switching to solar powered light fixtures or to add additional lighting that is powered by the sun.

Many of us have seen solar lights used for landscaping, walkways, and gardens.  What you may not know is that there are specific fixtures actually meant to be installed and incorporated into your decks as well.  Solar post lights are a prime example.  These lights fit on top of a standard 4×4 deck post.  They collect sunlight during the day, which charges their internal batteries, and then turn on automatically when it gets dark, lighting up the area around the perimeter of the deck.

There are also flush mounted solar deck lights that you can install directly in the flooring of your deck or just about anywhere else where you can drill a small hole to insert them.  They come in lots of shapes, sizes, and light intensities, so they will easily fit into any theme or decorating style that you may have going or they can create any type of atmosphere you would like.  Since they mount flush to the deck, they can be put just about anywhere, without worrying about them becoming a tripping hazard and they can make it easier to see where you are walking, as well as creating an interesting and ambient glow.  Flush mounted solar deck lights are often used around stairs and changes in levels to make people aware of where they are stepping to avoid any accidents.

There are also lots of different styles of both hanging and mountable versions of solar deck lights.  Most of them are extremely easy to install and are all almost completely maintenance free.  They all use solar panels to collect the sun’s energy by day to allow them to stay lit all night without using any of your home’s electricity.  That means that they are not only free to operate, but also an ecologically responsible way to add a beautiful ambiance to your deck at night.

Whether you would like to use your deck to entertain during the evening, or just as a relaxing place to sip a martini or read a book, you can use solar deck lights to create any atmosphere that you want.  They are even more versatile than conventional deck lighting, cost nothing to operate, and are friendlier to the environment as a whole.  When you use solar lights for your deck, you can brighten up the space, making it safer, cozier, and more inviting, with no costs whatsoever, other than the initial investment in the solar lighting itself.
