Accent lighting is a hot trend in deck design right now, thanks largely to the availability of affordable low-voltage LEDs. Fiberon’s Accent Lights are recessed into the deck surface. Installation doesn’t require an electrician; the lights are wired to a transformer, which is plugged into a standard outlet. A kit containing 10 lights, a transformer, the needed wire, and a remote-control dimmer costs $230.
