A Deck-adent Past

Porches and decks have long been the highlight of homes. Wrap around porches scattered with rocking chairs to enjoy that morning cup o’ joe and a wave to the neighbors sounds like a scene from a 1950’s novel. They are a place for people to gather and share a cocktail or two, or an area of sweet serenity where you can crack open a book and let go for a while.

A Relit Update

Decks and patios are just as special to a home today as they were in the past. However, with today’s technology they can be transformed into a fairytale lit delight with the installation of proper lighting. Artisan electric can provide you with a local electrician from the seacoast area to make your dream patio come to life.


Deck and patio lighting is very versatile and can be tailored to meet the desires of any individual. The wiring can be concealed to keep the design looking tidy and clean. Typically deck lighting is powered by a 12-volt transformer plugged into a regular outlet. However, lighting can also be connected to a household voltage of up to 120 volts. The lighting can mount on posts, rails, and other components making the design personal, discreet, and easy to operate.

Let there be Light

Lighting can be in the form of spotlights or hanging fixtures and mini recessed lights that are drilled along stairs or railings give a beautiful ambiance. There is also accent lighting that illuminates certain parts of a deck or patio like a mural or tree.

Whatever your desire, qualified electricians have the tools to turn your patio and deck into your very own iridescent masterpiece.

Safety First

The addition of deck lighting is a wonderful investment that will really top off any home. However, be sure to hire a qualified electrician in order to maintain your personal safety as this requires the use of many electrical components.

Serving the Portsmouth and Seacoast area, Artisan Electric can help you pick the right lighting to meet all your needs.
