Landscape Lighting For Your Backyard Structures

In addition to your home, your landscaping and outdoor pathways and entranceways, your backyard likely has structures that you would like to illuminate, especially during the summer months when spending time outdoors is more enjoyable. From the gazebo to the outdoor kitchen, keep your landscape lighting looking its best.

Gazebo Landscape Lighting
Start by taking into account your gazebo style. Is it tradition, modern, contemporary, Caribbean, boho? The style of your gazebo will dictate what kind of lighting you choose to light up the space. Gazebo lighting often includes several elements. For starters, permanent light fixtures, decorative elements, and portable lighting. Depending on the size of your gazebo you may not need portable lighting. Permanent fixtures will be the main lights in your gazebo. Outdoor chandeliers, wall sconces, and ceiling fixtures can all achieve the right lighting for gazebos of most sizes. Your lighting technician will work with you to find a style and intensity of light to suit the space. Don’t forget to provide lighting on the pathways that lead towards the gazebo as well.

Outdoor Kitchen Lighting
Outdoor living spaces require ample light. Whether you’re making a meal or playing board games, ensuring you have adequate light will make your experience so much better. It will also help dictate the atmosphere while expressing your personal style. When choosing the lighting for an outdoor kitchen, make sure to use task lighting above the grill and prep station. It’s important that you have enough light to tell when the hamburgers are cooked! A halogen or LED bulb with strong light is ideal for this site. It’s also vital that you use lighting that can be exposed to the elements. Choose lights that are suited for damp or wet locations. This way whether it rains or you forget to put the top on the blender when making margaritas you won’t ruin the lighting! Under cabinet lighting and dimmers are add ons that make your outdoor kitchen run even more smoothly.

Outdoor Living Room Lighting
Outdoor living rooms are worth their weight in gold. They are the epitome of luxury. Sure you have a living room inside, but why not soak up the beauty of an Ottawa summer?! If your outdoor living room space includes a dining space, then an outdoor chandelier is a perfect lighting solution. With so many different styles to choose from you will no doubt find something to suit your style. Make sure to find a chandelier with dimming capabilities to save electricity while creating atmosphere.

If your outdoor living space is made up of comfortable lawn furniture and surrounded by fences or the walls of your home, attractive outdoor wall sconces or wall mounted light fixtures are perfect for the job. Better yet, because they are so simple to install, replacing them to keep up with your decorating style is quick and simple.

Once again, don’t forget to pay special attention to lighting pathways, entranceways and steps to keep both you and your visitors safe!
