At Outdoor Lighting Perspectives, we pride ourselves on enhancing the outdoor living experience of our clients with light. Now that Memorial Day has passed, more and more homeowners are enjoying nights outside with friends and family. Our deck and patio lights in Richmond ensure the party stays outside when the weather allows it.
Just recently, we visited the home of a client that loves to cook and during the spring and summer, they like to cook outside on the grill as much as possible. They were having some trouble, however, on nights when they got home later and couldn’t see the grill or the food cooking. We knew a barbecue light installation would be perfect for this backyard.
Barbecue lights are most commonly installed on the deck railing around a grill or on a permanent outdoor kitchen. Unlike traditional deck and patio lights, barbecue lights have a long neck with some flexibility to it, allowing homeowners to easily direct the light where it is needed. The lights not only make outdoor cooking easier, but also safer, minimizing the risk of unnecessary burns.
After the food is prepared, outdoor lights can provide beautiful and effective illumination for outdoor dining and entertaining. Deck and Patio lights come in a variety of styles and applications. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives helps homeowners decide which type of light is best for your backyard. Some of our favorites are:
Traditional Deck and Patio Lights. Our classic lighting fixtures are our most popular backyard lighting option. They are strategically placed around the patio or along the deck railing posts, shooting light downward. While the light beam effectively lights the outdoor living space, the fixtures themselves are not the focal point.
String Lights. Used for years in outdoor holiday lighting, string lights are now a common lighting application for outdoor living spaces. They can be wrapped around trees or railings, or strung above the space. Just look how whimsical this backyard looks with string lights.
Tiki Path Lights. Nothing says summertime part light tiki lights. Often times, however, they don’t provide enough light for safety purposes, until now. Our tiki path lights are half tiki torch, half path light. It looks like a tiki torch, but the bottom half is a path light that illuminates the surrounding surface.
