patio lighitngThe trend towards outfitting outdoor living spaces to be more comfortable and more functional is in full effect. For this very reason, pergolas are growing in popularity. In Wilmington, the most significant benefit is the partial shade pergolas provide to outdoor living spaces. With the addition of fabric or vines, it can even provide full shade to protect you from the hot summer sun. Pergolas are beloved for their arts and crafts charm and their ability to visually separate spaces within a backyard. While the initial addition of a pergola to the backyard might be for daytime benefits, it certainly deserves to shine at night. Check out the options for Wilmington pergola lighting.

In any case, our string lights come with a 5-year warranty and are custom-strung for exactly needed lengths.

Pergola Task Lighting

If you’ve positioned your pergola over an outdoor kitchen, grill, tiki bar, or dining table, you may benefit from more focused task lighting. We offer a variety of styles, from traditional downlights that hide in the rafters to sourcing decorative pendant lighting. Our team will work closely with you to give you the style and lighting results you desire. We can even add a switch for task lighting. This is great for added flexibility, so the lights can only be on when you need them or even dimmed if you only need a soft glow when not cooking.

Focal Lighting

Uplighting the gorgeous columns of a pergola is a fabulous way to subtly highlight the beautiful craftsmanship. You’ll enjoy a variety of gorgeous shadows as the light dances off the decorative rafters and beams. Depending on the style of your pergola, we may discover some very specific customized lighting to highlight the unique style. For instance, a pergola with very modern or decorative columns might benefit from specialized techniques or fixtures to make them glow from within or all around. Sourcing specialty lights such as sconces and chandeliers for your pergola are also an option.
