My rule in outdoor lighting design is to focus on the illuminated, not the light. This is an easy rule to follow when it comes to highlighting gorgeous custom stone work. Whether you have a single retaining wall, an outdoor kitchen or your hillside property features a great deal of stone support structures, we can turn these functional items into stunning focal pieces on your property. And don’t forget the stone veneer on your home’s siding or columns. Elements with this much character deserve to be seen at night.
Properly illuminating vertical stone structures at your home is a bit trickier than you might think. If you flood the stone with too much light you will lose texture and color. There is some mastery in designing outdoor lighting to maximize the depth, texture & character of the custom stonework. The angle of the light, the width of the beam and the brightness are all a factor. At Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Puget Sound, we pride ourselves in the ability to not only highlight your stonework, but to allow all its intricacy and craftsmanship to shine through as well at night as it does during the day.
From above or below, we’ll make sure your stacked stone, natural stone & brick pavers look fantastic at night. If we are illuminating a sitting wall, garden wall or outdoor fireplace, we can mount gorgeous lights underneath the capstone or countertop for a subtle illumination you won’t soon forget.
Alternatively, if your stone structures don’t feature a top, such as stone veneer siding or hillside retaining walls, we’ll illuminate them from the ground. With the right focal lighting placed at just the right angle, the light will wash up over the stone, creating a shadow with every change in relief. The texture of your stone comes to life with the play of shadow & light.
