There are several different deck lighting ideas. But if you’re budget is limited then you can choose some cheap deck lighting ideas. And some of them are mentioned in here. First idea is rope lighting. Rope lighting is a string of light emitting diodes (LEDs) encased in flexible plastic tubing. They are weather resistant, durable and merely plug into the wall, so no special wiring is required. Specialty clips are available to fasten the string where you want (you should never penetrate the plastic tubing as this could damage the lights and/or interfere with its weather resistance). Or you can use tiki torches. By far the least expensive option, tiki torches are typically bamboo and contain refillable plastic oil fuel canisters. An added benefit to the cost savings is that most torch fuels contain mosquito repellent, like citronella.
Another cheap deck lighting ideas is surfaced-mounted. Fixtures that are surface-mounted to your deck are easy to find and often reasonably priced. They come in a wide variety of styles. Choose surface-mounted fixtures that complement your home’s architectural style and color. And opt for a fixture that creates a medium-bright light. Some deck lights, such as sconce types, look best on beams while others make an attractive addition to the railing.
