Deck Lighting By OLP: This is NOT your Grandmother’s Deck Lighting

Today’s Louisville deck lighting serves a myriad of purposes. From extending the outdoor living function and added safety to creating stunning entertaining space and backyard retreats, this is not the same old deck lights from your childhood. Today’s decks deserve careful custom deck lighting design from the experts at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives.

The History of Practical Deck Lightingmarket lighting on deck

Years ago, the function was the sole purpose of a deck light. Riser lights add safety to staircases to lower property liabilities and accidental falls. Depending on the size, shape, and location of the deck, lights were added to undersides of railings for additional safety around the perimeter. But today’s backyard is an investment in a luxurious outdoor lifestyle. To maximize that investment, homeowners want to not only gain function on their deck after dark but also to extend the enjoyment of the beauty of that investment. From accentuating the deck design to upping the entertainment factor, Louisville deck lighting takes your deck to the next level.

Deck Lighting for Beautiful Living

Our gorgeous LED deck lighting options transform your deck into a beautiful lightscape. While riser lights, post lights, and railing lights are still a great choice for ensuring safety, we step outside the box to illuminate the unique features that make your deck a true extension of your home.

Does your deck feature a pergola or porch roof? We can highlight decorative columns, hang permanent market lights over the dining area below or mount specialty lights wherever the opportunity arises. We can also add pendant lights over bar counters, dining tables, and other areas where task lighting could be useful.

Does your deck feature large planter boxes or potted trees? The same gorgeous landscape lighting we place in your yard can be applied to items on the deck. A gorgeous light shining right up the trunk and into the canopy of a potted tree can transfer the one-with-nature feel you get during the day, well into the night.

Do you have a privacy wall on your deck? Half-moon deck lights are perfect for mounting near the top of a privacy wall to cascade down the lovely lattice, wood, or stonework.

Do you enjoy prepping food and cooking in a modern outdoor kitchen? Adore the deep textures of color and pattern in your stonework with hardscape mounted lights tucked underneath your countertop. On the prep side, they add task lighting, on the opposite side, you gain ambient light to illuminate the space.
