As the temperature rises, outdoor entertaining becomes more important. You want to create a space that you can host guests and family members from out of town. How can you make the most of your outdoor space? Patio lighting can create ambiance and open up a space, perfect for entertaining. How can you add patio lighting to your property?

Aesthetics & Design

When designing an outdoor lighting system, putting together a mood board can help. If you are able to research what elements of other lighting systems you like, you can help the professional designers bring your vision to life. You should look at what mood you’re trying to set with your lighting. Where do you want to place fixtures? What kinds of lighting do you want to use? Uplights? Downlights? You should ask yourself what techniques you like. Perhaps you have a taste for silhouetting or shadowing. Commonly, people prefer moonlighting outdoors for its natural lighting effect.

You can figure all of this out by scrolling through outdoor lighting galleries or looking through photo sites like pinterest and instagram. These are great for choosing your influences. If you don’t know what a certain technique is, but you know you like it, you can ask one of our lighting professionals and they will help you identify it. They can then explain how to put that technique into action to make your patio lighting vision come to life. Houston Lightscapes designs patio lighting in Houston and the surrounding area. If you don’t know what you like, and don’t want to do the research, our lighting designers can come to your property and put together a lighting design they think would best work with the property. 


When it comes to installing your patio lighting design, our lighting professionals will come to your property and discuss your expectations. Then, they will set up a free nighttime lighting demo so that you can see what LED patio lights will look like on your patio or deck. From there, we can identify what you like and don’t like about the design, and can make adjustments. After we’ve finalized a plan that you approve of for a lighting system, we can then set up a time to come to your home and install the patio lighting system along with any other outdoor lighting you’d like done. 
After we’ve installed your lighting system, you will hardly know we were there. We are efficient and discreet in our installations. Our wiring doesn’t involve being deeply buried or upending your yard. It can be buried in a shallow dig out, causing minimal damage to your yard. Then, you have a chance to review the finalized system at night and tell us of any improvements or adjustments you’d like to be made. You don’t pay for a thing until your patio lighting display is fully installed and operational, and meets 100% of your expectations.
