How to Illuminate your Outdoor Living Space

July 02, 2019

Illuminating your outdoor space is an important part of any renovation. Before deciding what types of lighting features to add into your space, you should consider where. The best type of lighting for your space may differ depending on the type of space.

There are areas in your outdoor living space where lighting is very important: Making sure your entertaining area is illuminated is crucial to ensure the party can continue throughout the night! Adding a Cambridge firepit or fireplace to the center of the area can create ambiance and warmth for family and friends as the temperature drops.

You also want to illuminate certain areas including edges between surfaces, changes of heights such as stairs, decks, and the edges between the pool and patio.

Also consider adding lighting to areas that keep your home safe and secure like your front and back door as well as your garage area. Bright lights will deter unwanted visitors while providing a guiding light for friends and family who are walking at night.
