Outdoor lighting can allow for greater use of your outdoor living spaces after dark, and there are many ways to implement lighting. Patio lighting allows for a large area to remain well-lit and safer to walk around in, either with more ambient lighting around the patio or with spotlights. Walkway lighting and boundary lighting also helps with safety while being aesthetically pleasing. Darker areas can have their own discrete spotlights, while accent lighting can provide a significant improvement to the look of an outdoor living area.
- Soft, warm walkway lighting can improve both safety and appearance.
- When working with a landscaper, point out the dark corners you’d like to illuminate.
- Accent lighting can draw attention to the patio floor or other areas of visual interest.
“Patio lighting can also improve the movement within this outdoor space and prevent slipping and falling.”
