Over the past few months, we’ve looked at how you can build your new bedroom, dining room, and much more, and how to incorporate new lighting into your design. While you spend a lot of time inside your house, that doesn’t mean the exterior should be neglected when it comes to lighting. At Accent Lighting in Wichita, we can help you find the right fixtures for your outdoor entertainment space, and you can create the ideal spot for summertime gathering and evening relaxation.
Start with Landscape Lighting
You might spend a lot of your summer gardening or tending to the yard, and you want people to be able to enjoy the beauty of your well-manicured lawn and flowers that are in full bloom in July. Landscape lighting is key when it comes to highlighting your grass, trees, and shrubs, and pathway lights can help define your walkways and property lines. Starting at ground level can be a great way to begin designing your new outdoor space.
Help Light the Way
Pathway and garden lights can help people see where they’re walking, but wall and post lights are key to helping light the way to your deck or your back door. Putting up lights around your deck or patio will help you create the ambiance that you want, and placing these fixtures on dimmers will help you set the levels exactly where you want them for a backyard barbecue or outdoor cocktail party.
Choose the Perfect Ambient Lighting
Ambient lighting refers to the general lighting within a space, and it often comes from an overhead fixture mounted on the ceiling. Since your backyard likely doesn’t have a ceiling, you may have to get creative with your ambient lighting solutions. A hanging lantern attached to the pergola can suffice, and you can complement it with string lights running back and forth above the seating area.
When it comes to your outdoor lighting, it’s important is to make sure you have layers of lights, starting at the ground level and working your way to the higher spaces around your deck or patio. At Accent, we can answer all of your questions regarding exterior lighting, and we’ll gladly show you all of the fixtures that could work for your new outdoor plan.
