As mentioned in an earlier blog here, home owners are investing in their properties to create a beautiful space for a ‘Stay-cation.” Within these backyard resorts, most likely there are two main focal points, decks and patios. Lighting is a key component to creating an inviting space into the evenings and four months a year.
A deck is a great space to create a dining area or outdoor kitchen to enjoy a glass of wine and have dinner with friends. In these areas, landscape lighting not only provides functional lighting for food preparation but also creates a relaxing mood and atmosphere all in a subtle manner. Soft down lights highlighting the dinner table, soft lighting for safety under railings and steps, and a light on a separate switch on the BBQ to help ensure you get steak grilled perfectly; the possibilities are endless.
No exception to the possibilities with lighting patios and lighting go hand in hand. A light below the pillar cap will not only accent the texture of the wall but will highlight the walkway. Linear lights on steps, sidewalls, or a seating wall provide a warm glow to your backyard resort.
