    could be done inside... we use decking like this in bathrooms. Also I have done similar seating in restaurants and clubs - banquette seating.

Take it outsideIt’s not hard to give a garden atmosphere with lighting after dark – illuminated foliage isn’t fussy and will simply look lovely with a few uplighters.However, using light to zone off an area like this comfy outdoor lounging spot requires skilled designing to get the effect just right. On the decked steps and bench, each layer slightly overhangs the area beneath it (a bit like the wall panel in the earlier photo), thus allowing space to tuck in an outdoor-suitable LED strip.You may not have an area like this, but is there a bench or a dining area or a pergola that would look good highlighted like this? Ask a professional to come have a look and give you some options.Check out these 10 ways to light up the patio

Consider low-level illuminationThis decked patio area with built-in seating is luxurious enough on its own, but the subtle wash of horizontal lighting at the ground level adds an extra special touch, and will ensure no one ever trips in the dark.

Introduce the unexpectedThis London terrace has real star quality thanks to feature lighting, stepped levels and a shimmering silver canopy above the outdoor sofa. LED strip lights have been concealed underneath the overhang of each step to cast a warm glow and highlight the changing levels. It’s an effective idea that would be easy to recreate in most city gardens. The canopy is a little more dramatic; the designer used 4km of stainless-steel ball chains to create the shimmering cascade. A length of muslin or linen would be an alternative way to achieve a draped effect.Read more:5 Ways to Live Large on a Small BalconyHow to Grow a Blooming Balcony GardenTell us: Have you designed a small city terrace or balcony?
