Outdoor living doesn’t have to be restricted to daylight hours. With proper patio lighting, you can relax, live, and entertain on your patio whenever you’d like. With professional service and custom design, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Louisville can create the perfect nighttime escape, right in your very own backyard.
Patio lighting design is a complicated endeavor. Patio composition, shape, size, materials & surroundings vary so greatly that each patio presents a unique canvas for our outdoor lighting design team. We have a large variety of techniques we use for Louisville patio lighting; from landscape lighting to moonlighting, we will employ the perfect design for your patio.
While you may be accustomed to a sconce by the back door or a giant flood light on the corner of the house, you might be surprised to hear there is a better way to light a patio. At Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Louisville, we many times use landscape lighting around the perimeter of the patio to create ambient light that in turn highlights the patio in just the right amount of light. Whether it is path lighting interspersed amongst your blooms and shrubs or a focal light highlighting your pergola, arbor or statue it all will wash across your patio in a handsome subtle glow.
It is common in today’s patio design to have a concrete paver or stone wall. Whether it is a sitting wall, retaining wall or part of an outdoor fire pit or outdoor fireplace, these structures provide a unique opportunity for illuminating your patio. We can use stair riser lights and insert them right into the paver wall, or we can tuck our deck lighting underneath capstones for a lovely soft wash called down lighting. The effect in both cases is a soft wash of light that highlights the gorgeous colors and texture of your paver stones.
Our top quality string lights add a festive and fun flair to your patio. While their proper name is up for serious debate (cafe lights, festive lights, party lights, market lights, festoon lighting), there is no doubt they are a growing trend in outdoor living. While you may think of market lighting as a temporary addition for a special event, you actually can leave them up year round with our high-quality, durable LED lights. Their flexibility to fit spaces of any size or shape make cafe lights a great choice for your unique patio design. Cafe lights can work under covered patios, pergolas, and open air patios alike.
Taking the outdoor flood light idea to a whole new level, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Louisville offers moonlighting for your patio space. Moonlighting employs a light that will shine across your entire patio space from high above, but the technique is what makes it special. If you have a tree near your patio, we can strategically place a downlight in just the right spot high up in your tree. The outdoor light will cast a stunning, majestic glow through the branches of your tree for an effect that will mimic the actual moonlight. If you’re familiar with a “hunter’s moon” you’ll recognize the magic immediately as the light filters through branches and leaves for a space covered in dancing shadows.
