Memphis Patio and Deck Lighting

One advantage of living in the Mid South is the opportunity to enjoy outdoor spaces all year long. Residing in Memphis brings mild temperatures for most of the year, which means you can enjoy your pool and patio for longer. One way to make the most of your patio and outdoor environment is by incorporating patio lighting. Front porches, back patios, and other spaces are warmer, cozier, and more inviting with the right lighting.

3 Things to Know Before Installing Patio and Deck Lighting

As with any outdoor project, there are many things to consider before installing lights for your patio and/or deck. In order to keep your space safe and relaxing, you need to consider every precaution and recommendation our team at Gurley’s can offer. Here are a few things you need to know before selecting the type of lighting to install on your patio or deck.

1. Keep up with patio light maintenance.

Patio lights are a great investment for your home. However, if you do not properly take care of them throughout each season of the year, they will slowly weather and lose their value. Lighting maintenance will not only keep your outdoor space safe, but it will also keep it looking clean and beautiful. You can maintain your patio lights by:

  • Cleaning and removing dirt, leaves, debris, etc.

  • Replacing damaged cables.

  • Checking and replacing damaged fixtures.

2. Choose the right location for your patio lights.

Patio lights can bring beauty and value to your home, but it’s important to carefully select where they will be placed. If you're planning a new patio, remember to conceal your lighting cables and wires. Be sure to select a location that will accurately highlight the parts of your patio and deck you wish to show off. For example, you may want your lighting to accentuate the seating area for friends and family to gather. With the help of our Memphis lighting experts, we can help you select the perfect location for your patio lighting design.

3. Hire a professional to install your patio lights.

Though you may want to try your hand at lighting installation, it's often better to work with a professional. To avoid costly mistakes, hire a team of lighting experts to ensure your outdoor space is the best it can be. The team at Gurley’s can provide you with the best recommendations for the most visually appealing lighting design. And they're conveniently located in Memphis, so they can easily support any lighting installation in the Mid South.
