Even though the days are getting shorter and cooler, there are still ways to enjoy your outdoor deck well into the fall months!
Adding underdecking or a screened in porch are great ways to keep the chill away. There are also plenty of lighting options to make your deck cozy and bright to extend your time on the deck during those fall evenings.
When deciding which type of lighting to add to your deck design, keep in mind that you most likely won’t want blazing bright lights illuminating your outdoor space. The right amount of lighting will allow you to comfortably see, but not be so bright that it overwhelms your outdoor experience!
For some subtle DIY lights for your deck or patio, try making some outdoor garden lanterns for a fun accent to hang from your deck railings or from a pergola. Adding string garden lights can be a festive way to add a little extra light, too.
Though DIY options are a great way to add personality and a little bit of light to your deck, sometimes it’s not quite enough. Beyond deck repair and building decks, UglyDeck.com can help you come up with a plan for the best way to light up your outdoor spaces! Whether it’s adding lights to your deck staircase or to deck handrails, our Minnesota deck builders are ready to help you figure out ways for lighting to enhance their evenings on their deck.
