Just like the interior of your home, the right lighting and a superior sound system can set the mood and enhance your outdoor living spaces. We’re in the business of creating luxury outdoor living spaces for our clients, and increasingly, they’re asking us to install high-end outdoor lighting and outdoor sound systems.
And it’s no wonder. If you’re spending a lot of time entertaining outdoors, you want your space to be well-lit after dark, and you want to be able to hear your favorite tunes or the big game, no matter where you are in your back yard.
With larger homes that have larger back yards, proper lighting and a wired sound system can go a long way in creating the ambiance you desire. Let’s take a look at some of your options.
Outdoor lighting encompasses both landscape lighting and the lighting fixtures you choose to light up your patio, outdoor dining room, outdoor kitchen, and more. The good news is that there are several high-end lighting companies providing quality fixtures to meet any aesthetic.
Some of our favorite options for lighting your outdoor living spaces include:
- A chandelier to hang from the ceiling of your pavilion to light your outdoor dining room
- Pendant lighting for your outdoor kitchen
- Sconces for exterior patio walls
- Recessed lighting for retaining walls and stairways
- Stake lighting for your pathways
But of course, the look and feel you want to achieve, and your individual style will dictate what outdoor lighting fixtures you choose.
Outdoor Sound System
If you have a small patio and backyard, a portable Bluetooth speaker might work for you. But if your outdoor living space stretches out to remote corners of your property, including multiple levels and separates seating areas, a wired outdoor sound system is your best bet to get quality sound in every space.
With speakers that look like landscape stake lights as well as regular speakers for the patio and kitchen area, you can bring mood music to any area, from the pool to the patio to the remote seating area up in your terraced garden.
If you’re an audiophile, a wired system is the way to go.
