What were you doing Sunday night? Well if you ‘re like most Americans, you were at someone’s house, or some people were at yours, well stocked with snacks and beverages watching the big game. I know I was. Especially with the spring-like break we got with the weather, it was the perfect night for a party. Even if you weren’t able to actually watch the game outside, I’m sure you took advantage of your deck and stepped out with friends occasionally for fresh air and some game (or commercial spot) discussion. But was it the next play or the shadows that drove you indoors? If it was the shadows, now may be a good time to think about how you can extend the your enjoyment of this area after dark. Decks are places of camaraderie, where good memories are made and great ideas are born. They are the life of the party, and to be used to their full potential, they need great outdoor lighting.
No one wants to stand in the dark, but we are all happy to relax in an area that’s softly illuminated with a warm glow. Deck lighting allows you and your guests clear visibility of edges, steps, and furniture, making it safer. It also allows for better visibility of each other, facilitating conversation. With deck lighting, the coming of night won’t signify a need to return indoors. Rather, your deck will transform into a more appealing outdoor living space.
With their wooden railings and varied shapes, decks provide wonderful opportunities for creative lighting design. And here at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Greenville and Western NC, we have many deck fixture options to help us craft designs that expand the functionality of your deck and increase its beauty and appeal. Each deck and homeowner is unique, so each of our designs is unique as well. Several different styles of deck lights can be attached to your railings, and we can also utilize step lights for stairs. Spotlights can highlight shrubs or trees around the structure. Working with you, we can create a design that best complements your deck’s features, a beautiful design you’ll love.
Though we still have six more weeks of winter (Thank you, Puxatawnee Phil), this weekend’s weather reminds us that spring really is coming quickly. So call Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Greenville and Western NC. We can get your deck ready to host a myriad of parties this spring and, if the weather holds out, one for the Winter Olympics starting later this week. Don’t let darkness chase you and your guest indoors. Reclaim the best party spot with the very best deck lighting.
