Patio Ideas / November 17, 2020

Is your deck or patio equipped for longer fall and winter nights? As daylight savings time draws to a close, incorporating these outdoor lighting additions will allow you to make the most of the gorgeous autumn days ahead.

Integrated Pergola Lighting Offers Multifunctional Use

A bright, beautiful home pergola is the ultimate backyard lighting addition. Integrating recessed pot lights or ceiling fans with lighting into the design of your home pergola will provide multifunctional illumination year-round. When paired with today’s latest dimmable, color-changing LED bulb technology, your lighting options are nearly limitless. Turn up the lumens on your built-in pergola lights to accomplish cooking tasks, dim them for a relaxing evening at home, or adjust bulb colors to your holiday theme. Look to leading brands for programmable smartphone or voice-command operation, or utilize Somfy technology, operating your StruXure pergola and built-in lighting via your home automation system.

Ambient Lighting Sets the Stage

Add an otherworldly glow to your porch or patio, incorporating rope or strip lights in a single shade surrounding the perimeter of your pergola. Or add the soft glow of fairy lights, creating a magical ambiance surrounding your pergola covered space. Take care with installation, ensuring all lighting components remain clear of the moving parts of your motorized louvered pergola system. Solar and electric remote control and mobile app-driven ambient lighting options are fun and easy to use. Like conventional LED light bulbs, many options on the market include color changing and light sequencing features.

Fire Features Add Warmth and Light

Backyard fire features such as gas fire tables and fire pits provide illumination, warmth, and ambiance. Feature size and proximity effects the level of lighting fire features provide, so keep this in mind when selecting your centerpiece. There are nearly limitless options, ranging from massive, built-in fireplaces to mid-sized chimineas perfect for tucking away in a corner, as well as affordable and portable fire bowls and fire tables that are easy to slide away into storage when the weather warms.

Don’t spend this autumn in the dark. Illuminate your yard with the help of a feature-packed, motorized pergola system. Contact Denver Pergola Systems to learn more about a custom residential pergola design for your porch or patio space today.


Enjoy Your Outdoor Living Space More… With An Adjustable Louvered Pergola!

Do you have an under-used, uncovered patio that is either too hot when you want to use it, or gets too much rain or snow to be functional? The Adjustable Louvered Pergola System has you covered – or uncovered! Unlike a retractable awning or wooden structure with fixed slats that give partial shade, but no rain protection, this aluminum pergola system can offer full sun, partial to full shade, or shelter thanks to its ingeniously designed adjustable louvered roof system.
