Houston deck and patio
Deck Lighting Makes all the Difference!
You have a marvelous deck and you enjoy it day after day, year round. You’ve found the perfect, most comfortable deck furniture for lounging, reading, visiting with friends and even dining outdoors. But do you have to carry a flashlight if you want to go out on the deck after sundown? Do you find yourself rushing to grill out before darkness falls?
If you’re hampered by darkness on your deck, you’re missing out on so much “deck time” you could be having. Evenings after dark, outside on the deck, are delightful with just the right deck lighting. Once you have the perfect lighting outside, you’ll wonder how you ever got along without it, and you’ll be able to use your deck even more than you already do now.
Benefits of Deck Lighting for your Houston Home
The benefits of deck lighting revolve around convenience and safety, and who doesn’t need a little more convenience and safety? With the right illumination on and around your deck, you won’t have to move the party indoors in order to see the person you’re talking with. You’ll be able to linger over cocktails without worrying about whether you’ll have time to grill dinner before it gets too dark. Your guests will be able to see their way safely down the deck stairs to view the night-blooming flowers in your yard. You can rest easy knowing you’ve taken care of a huge safety issue by lighting the steps up to your deck.
Houston deck lighting isn’t just practical, it’s alluring. The right fixtures, professionally installed, will beckon you out onto the deck after dark. Some of the fixtures may be small and cleverly tucked away just below a railing or along stair risers, and you may not even notice the fixtures themselves. You will notice the soft lighting effects, though, and the soothing ambiance those fixtures provide.
Soft and subtle ambient lighting will make all the difference. It doesn’t take a lot of light to dramatically improve your enjoyment outdoors on the deck. Ambient lighting sets the mood so gently you’ll soon take it for granted and forget that it’s serving a practical purpose as well.
Once in a while, you may need brighter lighting for the grill master or the bartender. No one wants to cut up lemons or limes in a minimal lighting situation. Even if it’s just for a few minutes, you’ll appreciate having access to a brighter light when you need it. When you meet with your lighting designer from Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Houston and The Woodlands, we’ll help you determine what kind of task lighting you may need, and where to place it.
We are pleased to offer deck lighting to The Heights, Memorial, River Oaks, The Woodlands, Spring, Magnolia, and most of Houston and North Houston. If you’re ready to get out and enjoy your deck at night, call us today or fill out the form to the right for a free design demonstration. 281-612-4129

With paver and stone becoming more accessible and easier to install every single day, the demand for patio lighting has also gone up.

A patio addition to your Houston home adds immediate lifestyle value as well as real monetary value to your home for future sale.

From integrated hardscape lighting, festive market lights, moonlighting, uplighting, perimeter landscape lighting and more, we will develop a custom patio lighting design that meets your unique patio and outdoor living needs.
Patio Lighting Ideas & Techniques
FESTIVE PERMANENT STRING LIGHTING
A classic light has become a hot trend. Whether you call them market lights, string lights, globe lights, festive lights or something else, they are awesome! We’ll custom design your festive string lights over your patio in a class straight line or a fashionable fan spread. You won’t have too few or too many lights with slack and pull; you’ll enjoy a professional grade light and installation for permanent placement and everyday fun. When you choose market lights for your patio lighting, you’re encouraging a good time no matter the occasion.
We are pleased to have patio lighting made specifically for vertical hardscape features. These lights fit right into your landscape walls, outdoor kitchens, fire pits and more. Their beautiful copper or brass finish allows them to look original and the ambient lighting they create is perfect for enjoying your patio at night.
You might be wondering what in the world does landscape lighting has to do with patio lighting? Well, one of the interesting and beloved patio lighting techniques we frequently use is to illuminate the perimeter by using landscape lighting in the surrounding flower beds. This creates a lovely subtle glow around the entire space for evenings that don’t require bright task lighting, but just enough lighting to see your way around and enjoy the night sky.
Essentially another way to say downlighting, moonlighting deploys a broad wash of light from high above your patio. This lighting is great if you have a tree nearby and want the entire patio illuminated for nighttime activities and good visibility.
If your patio is surrounded by vertical structures, uplighting is a great technique for you. We will use focal lighting to wash light up that privacy wall to glow onto the patio. We can create this unique look with surrounding trees, fountains, pool houses, gazebos, fences, and statues.
We are pleased to offer patio lighting to The Heights, Memorial, River Oaks, GOOP, The Woodlands, Spring, Magnolia, and most of Houston and North Houston.
