Fall is slowly but steadily making its way into Memphis. Right now, before it gets too cold outdoors, pour yourself a cup of coffee, hot chocolate, or hot tea, and let’s make some outdoor plans for the fall and the upcoming wintry months. What will it be? A family gathering? A Christmas party with friends? Or maybe you’ll just invite the neighbors over and drag out the grill after a football game. Whatever you choose, it will surely take place on the deck or patio or by the fire pit. It’s a great time to consider how outdoor lighting can make your first fall and winter events well worth the wait.
By adding deck lighting, this outdoor living space goes from being a trip hazard after dark to a lively party area. Decks, with their wooden railings, allow for many design options. From step lights to deck lights, our resilient, copper fixtures cast light that makes the area safe and beautiful. A quality design for the deck emits ample light for safe navigation of the area, while also utilizing shadows to manipulate mood and create visual depth.
Like a deck, a patio area needs sufficient lighting to be safe. Patio lighting is different and, in some ways, more difficult to design because, often, lights cannot be attached to rails. However, patio lighting has distinct impact because it can be used to set the area apart from the rest of the yard. By using the features of the area and a variety of fixtures, patios transform from ordinary to enchanting and elegant.
Fire Pit Lighting
At first, you might wonder why you couldn’t just use the firelight to illuminate your fire pit area. You can technically, but remember that the best lighting comes from multiple sources and the fire will die down over time, becoming less effective. Designs for fire pit areas are similar to patios in many ways, but they can also be especially lovely with the addition of orb lights or string lighting.
