Gone are the days where a patio is simply a slab of concrete attached to your house by the backdoor. Today’s patios are a beautifully created outdoor space of materials like paver, brick, stone, and hard scapes to enhance the quality of time spent at home with family and friends, not to mention they increase the monetary value of your property for future sale. Oftentimes, patios are used to surround pools or transition areas within your landscape, or even an outdoor courtyard. You may even have an outdoor fireplace or kitchen. No matter the size, shape, or purpose of your patio, the last thing you want is to lose its usability when the sun goes down.
At Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte, we can ensure your enjoyment of your patio living space lasts well into the evening with custom decorative patio lighting. Charlotte patio lighting provides added security for more visibility, mobility and footing on your patio or hardscape area while in use. Lighting your hardscape area can also promote ambiance and character, setting the mood for endless evening enjoyment. Our lighting designers will take into consideration all aspects of your patio area to create the perfect custom evening atmosphere, with appropriate light fixtures for each area and desired goals.
For areas that are difficult to illuminate, our copper and brass half-moon sconces are the perfect subtle accoutrement for glowing comfort and safety. They are used in a variety of areas such as retaining walls or other areas of your deck or patio. These lights are both beautiful and durable, standing the test of time while also casting the widest indirect wash of light. Since they are made of copper and brass, over time they develop a lovely patina with age.
Another possible fixture we may use in your Charlotte decorative patio lighting installation is the classic adjustable pier-mounted copper path light. These are often placed around landscaping that surrounds your deck or patio, or even secured atop retaining walls or other hardscapes. Landscape lighting often goes hand in hand with patio lighting, and allows for a seamless and enjoyable nighttime backyard experience.
Do you have a single area of your outdoor living space that you want a broad swath of light, for example a gazebo? Then moonlighting would be a great option. It’s another word for downlighting, which creates a focused space and broad wash of light from high above and want good visibility.
If your patio is surrounded by vertical structures, uplighting is a fantastic technique. We use focal lighting to project light upwards on areas like trees, fountains, fences, and statues. This unique look is both elegant and conveys a sense of sophistication.
Every deck and patio is unique, and our professional lighting designers have years of experience creating the perfect decorative patio lighting atmosphere for homeowners, regardless of size or features.
