Illuminate with Purpose

When it comes to patio lighting, it’s always important to think about the layout of your outdoor space, and then identify the key areas where lighting can make the biggest impact in terms of function and fashion.


Start by highlighting pathways and steps with subtle yet effective lighting solutions such as LED step lights or low-voltage path lights. Not only do these lighting options instantly improve the safety of your patio by guiding guests along designated walkways, but they also look amazing and add a huge splash of personality to your home’s exterior design.

Layer Your Lighting Setup for Incredible Results

Just like with indoor lighting design, layering is key to creating a remarkable blend of simplicity and sophistication in terms of your patio’s aesthetic and ambiance. When you combine different types of lighting fixtures, you’d be surprised at how easy it is to achieve a harmonious balance of light and shadow. 


Start with overhead lighting to project a larger-than-life sense of illumination. Then, incorporate wall washing, such as wall-mounted or adjustable spotlights, to light up specific areas like outdoor dining and cooking areas, or even around the fire pit. Finally, add accent lighting to infuse your patio with a feeling of warmth and seasonal charm. 


By layering these different types of lighting, you can create a dynamic and inviting atmosphere that beckons guests to linger long into the night, enjoying the fresh springtime air.

Connect with Nature, All Season Long

One of the joys of spring is the beauty of nature coming to life all around us. We recommend that everybody embrace this natural beauty by incorporating landscape lighting that complements your outdoor surroundings. 


Pro Tip: Choose lighting gear made from organic materials such as weathered brass or copper finishes to blend seamlessly with the patio and the surrounding landscape. Consider also using warm-toned LED bulbs to mimic the soft glow of candlelight, creating a cozy and inviting atmosphere that invites guests to unwind and connect with nature.

If you have a pool or any other outdoor fixtures like waterfalls, consider adding underwater lighting to these features to create an even deeper connection to the elements. Even though these features may not be directly attached to the patio, drawing attention to these centerpieces is a great way to keep the good times rolling.


These step lights can also be installed as a recessed lights designed for concrete pour applications, meaning they can be used for alternative spaces like retaining walls or built-in to other backyard landscape features like a fire pit, column, or outdoor kitchen.

Create Unforgettable Springtime Experiences

As the weather warms and the days grow longer, spring is the perfect time to upgrade the way that you entertain yourself and guests on the patio with impressive lighting that sets the stage for once-in-a-lifetime gatherings. 

Consider installing statement-making uplights and downlights above your outdoor dining area to create an extra special visual treat and maybe even break the ice as far as conversation is concerned.
