As the weather continues to get warmer, spending more time outdoors surely seems appealing. What better way to enjoy a cool spring evening than around a nice, warm fire pit. Seat wall lighting around a fire pit will add a stylish dimension of illumination and maximizes your outdoor time after the sun has set. See how this practical little light can transform the overall aesthetic and safety of your gathering spot.
Seat wall fixtures are small but mighty. They provide a notable amount of light to the surrounding area, yet don't overpower the space. At McKay Landscape Lighting, we embed these small fixtures into a stone wall to make the fixture itself barely visible.
When the light catches the stone, it is spectacular at night and creates an aesthetically pleasing environment. You'll love how a little light can transform your space to make it more usable and enjoyable. The shadows on the rocks create a unique and classy atmosphere that will make you want to spend more time by your fire pit.
Besides increased enjoyment and beauty, seat wall lights help make the entire area around your fire pit and its seating safer. It provides a gentle splash light on the ground, which increases visibility for you and your guests. Seat wall lights also work well on stone walls or steps, as shown below.
The installation is an important aspect of seat wall lighting, especially around a fire pit. Our experienced installation crews take great pride in the techniques they've mastered over the years. There is no doubt that installation is difficult. The wire must be drilled through concrete and hidden accordingly. The fixture itself must be installed flush on the wall, which often proved difficult.
The end result should provide the perfect amount of light where needed with the fixtures evenly spaced. Too much light can easily overpower the space, whereas too little can will be underwhelming.
If your fire pit already has a built-in stone seat, seat wall lighting will greatly enhance the look of your outdoor area.
Seat wall lights can make your outdoor living area much safer at night as well as bring a unique ambiance to your fire pit seating area.
