Whether it is a deck, porch, patio or other structure, your outdoor living space is an extension of your home. It’s an additional area to spend time with friends and family, but isn’t it a shame when darkness forces you back inside? At Outdoor Lighting Perspectives, we install deck and patio lighting in Midlothian, Manakin Sabot and the greater Richmond area so you can spend extended time outdoors.
Our deck and patio lighting is subtle yet functional. We will install just enough lighting fixtures to provide the necessary light to be safe, but not overpowering. The lights are placed strategically throughout the space for an even wash of illumination.
Lights for your outdoor living spaces take a few different forms, deck lights, step lights and path lights.
Deck lighting is most commonly installed on the deck posts, shining light downward onto the deck. They can also be placed on the post caps or on retaining walls that may be in the space. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives will design a deck and patio lighting system that will be subtle, but will also provide the necessary sure-footing needed in any outdoor living space.
Decks and patios often have steps leading to and from the yard below, but when it is dark, they can be dangerous. We suggest making sure that each step can be clearly seen at night so no trips and falls occur. Deck and patio lights for step lighting can be places on the deck’s posts or on the vertical part of the step, whichever you prefer.
Path lighting may be most frequently used for lighting walkways, but they are a great lighting option for decks and patios that are low to the ground. They can be placed around the perimeter of the space and cast a perfect glow of light.
Your outdoor living experience shouldn’t be cut short when the sun goes down. Please call us at 804.874.9985 to discuss how you can get more out of your backyard with the addition of deck and patio lights in Richmond, Charlottesville and the surrounding areas.
