Seattle's Summer Tourist Season is Almost Here: Is Your Home Ready?

Everyone knows when the prices of hotels and plane tickets jump, that it is tourist season in Seattle. There is nothing like a Pacific Northwest summer, it draws people from all over the world to hike our mountains, swim our oceans and absorb the breathtaking views from across the city, suburbs and countryside. If you have family from out of town, they quite likely avoid coming to visit outside of this glorious summer season – which means they are all coming during the busy summer months. Is your home ready?

Outdoor lighting is a great way to prepare for out of town guests. Taking full advantage of every inch of your outdoor space can be the difference between a peaceful week of getting to spend quality time together and the “too close quarters” that can quickly lead to agitated nerves. At Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Puget Sound, we’d like to help you show your guests a good time while keeping your sanity by adding LED outdoor lighting to your outdoor living space.


Your deck, patio or porch is a true extension of your indoor living space during the lovely spring and summer months. They can provide a glorious spot to enjoy the views of the Sound and the Mountains. With summer guests visiting, this is valuable space for spreading out, dining, relaxing and entertaining. Add LED outdoor lighting, and the space can be utilized well past sunset so you and your guests can get every last minute out of the visit and the gorgeous Seattle summer weather.

Starting with subtle lighting for safe navigation, we can add riser lights in your deck stairs and tuck half-moon deck lights under the railings for increased visibility. We can approach your patio with the same idea, by placing rock wall lights under retaining wall capstones and under outdoor kitchen countertops. By adding path lights along your landscape beds and pathways, your guests will be invited to venture out into the entire yard in the evenings.

For a more festive entertaining space, we have a few lighting effects we love. Our moonlighting technique is great for washing majestic light over your entire outdoor living space. With the right tree nearby, we can create the “hunter’s moon” effect for everyday functionality. We also love to add festive string lights over your dining space, on your covered porch or around your outdoor kitchen for a year-round special event feeling. Nothing sets the party mood like the perfect lighting effect.

If you’re preparing your Seattle home for summer visitors, call today for a free nighttime demonstration. You won’t believe what LED outdoor lighting can do for your outdoor living space. (425) 414-8885
