Deck lights can be installed as close as desired, provided the cable that connects them is of adequate length. However, a space of around 1m-2m is recommended between each recessed light. This is to avoid over-lighting your outdoor area and make sure you get the most out of each fitting. If your LED lights have a lower lumen output, then you can afford for them to be closer together to ensure that your deck is covered evenly and remains well-lit. Outdoor deck lighting is a popular choice for garden illumination, but it is essential not to over saturate your outdoor area with too many lights; less can equal more when creating a aesthetic garden. You must also be aware of the placement of your light fittings if they use solar technology; solar powered deck lights work the same as solar panels and need direct sunlight to charge most effectively.
There are many different types of outdoor lighting you can use to brighten up your decking area. Garden spotlights, strip lights and deck lights are all popular choices that are effective in illuminating a garden. Our high quality LED lighting kits are recessed into the floor and are a space-efficient, stylish way to keeping your deck safe and well lit. Deck lighting kits are an easy-to-install, trip-proof method of lighting your decking; however, if you're looking for a different style, then LED strip lights are an option. LED strip can be installed along the underside of stairs, across furniture or along the perimeter to make it safe to walk on at night. You can also combine both recessed and strip lights for a varied style.
Deck lights run on mains voltage which is 220-240 Volts. This reduces the need for an LED driver or transformer and makes for quick and easy installation. Most 220-240v LED lights are simply plugin and use light fitting, making them one of the most simple ways to light your garden. LED strip for decking can be a range of voltages, with standard (220-240V) and low voltage (12V & 14V) options in stock. If a low voltage light is what you are looking for then you will also need an LED driver to install your strip lights. The good news is that both LED strip and LED drivers are available with an IP65+ rating, making them suitable for outside use.
Decking lights can be fitted into any deck surface, either on flat flooring or on a vertical step. This allows for brilliant effect lighting in your garden and also enables you to light steps effectively, making them safer for use in low light conditions. Outdoor step lights offer practical but elegant illumination and can be used to finish a garden lighting project. LED strip lighting kits can also be placed on the underside of steps or stairs to provide a low-key, elegant light.
Composite decking is a longer-lasting alternative to wood, keeping colour for longer and reducing maintenance costs. When installing LED deck lighting kits, composite decking acts identically to traditional wood decking. Simply cut a hole in your decking area and install your lights as normal.
