Illuminating Excellence: The Impact of Good Lighting on Eva-Last Decking and Cladding

Lighting is a powerful tool we can use to transform our homes – inside and out. When it comes to our exterior spaces, lighting can add new heights of sophistication to a beautiful deck or cladded area. It’s a simple yet effective way to create ambiance and enhance the functionality of our everyday spaces.


Decking and cladding are not just functional elements in architecture. On the contrary, they can provide the blank canvas we need to make a statement and let prominent architectural features shine. The key here is the use of quality materials and trusted brands that make a difference.

For example, Eva-Last products are designed to go beyond mere construction materials – they offer unlimited design potential and innovation to give your home the edge. One such product, renowned for its versatility and durability, is Vistaclad, offering screening and decking solutions from Eva-Last that can help to create that modern clean aesthetic we have all come to love.

Now, imagine pairing a beautiful feature such as cladding or decking with the right lighting! This makes for the perfect combination of elements to help create interesting highlights and shadows to enhance your space even more. In fact, the right lighting can change our entire perception of a space. Moreso, on the exterior of our homes, where quality decking or cladding already add to the functionality of our space, the right lighting can help set the mood, evoke emotion and heighten our experiences outdoors.

Let’s explore some of the benefits of adding the right lighting to a deck or cladded area:


Lighting and ambience are a match made in heaven. By strategically placing lights near cladding or decking, we can create the distinct atmosphere to suit an inspired mood – be it cosy and intimate or vibrant and energetic.

Aesthetic Appeal:

Lighting has a way of making things stand out and seem even more beautiful than it really is. We love the idea that the right lighting can accentuate the elements we want to be noticed. It can draw attention to those details and textures of decking and cladding that we want to stand out as feature elements. Whether it’s highlighting natural grain or sleek tones, the right lighting can make all the difference.


Beyond aesthetics, lighting is also a necessity – inside and outside the home. We may use lighting without giving it a second thought, but it can enhance the functionality and safety of our spaces – especially outdoors and at night. Pathway lights along decking can provide much-needed illumination in the dark while soft, ambient lighting can  extend the usability of our exterior spaces, especially when entertaining after dusk.

Creative Expression:

We all want to leave our unique creative mark on our homes. Lighting makes this even more possible as it gives us the chance to get creative and make a statement. From soft uplighting to dramatic downlights, an interplay highlights and shadows give any space a creative effect. Soft garden lights or fixtures placed along a pool deck can create a beautiful display.


We now live in a world where environmental consciousness is very important and our choices today will impact our lives tomorrow. When it comes to lighting, sustainability matters too.  Our suggestion? Consider energy efficient lighting as the sustainable choice. Modern options like LED lighting will not only help you reduce your carbon footprint but can also offer you added benefits of colours, temperatures and control options.

In conclusion, lighting is not just a ‘nice-to-have- choice in a modern home. With so many benefits, it can certainly work to enhance your space and highlight those features you are proud to showcase around your abode. The right lighting will certainly you’re your Eva-Last decking and cladding products shine even brighter as the star elements they are. In the end, it’s about turning outdoor spaces into beautifully immersive environments that the whole family will love.

So, the next time you embark on a design project, let’s not taking lighting for granted! Let Eva-Last be your partner in illuminating excellence.
