They say that less can sometimes be more and this is true of deck lights, avoid over lighting the area, as it can look to stark and harsh. If you feel that you need to increase the levels of light around your decking look into using a secondary source of light such as flowerbed or plant pot low level spotlight illuminating through shrubs or other plants from the sides and edges of the decking can crate shadows and patterns of diffused light around the deck area. Fittings recessed into the deck floor will provide little direct illumination to the area above as the light goes straight upwards rather than spreading out to the sides. This style of light is extremely attractive and should not be overlooked, as it will provide essential mood lighting. Deck lights can also be recessed into handrail posts and steps where they can provide a very attractive horizontal spread of light across the steps or walkway. Consider a higher level light source for tasks such as cooking or eating. These lights could be wired on their own switch circuit for extra flexibility.
