- Safety First: When it comes to outdoor spaces after dark, it’s important to keep safety front and center. Something as small as missing a step or tripping over a piece of decor could lead to serious health risks. If that happens to a guest, it further places you in danger of civil litigation Make sure the space is well lit, above all.
- Make It Useful: Once safety is established, you’ll want to make sure the lighting you choose is useful to your intents and purposes. For example, if you plan to use your deck for grilling entertainment, make sure cooking areas, food serving areas and tables are well lit. If sitting peacefully and enjoying your evening, make sure chairs and walkways are perfect for the setting.
