Outdoor lighting can accentuate your yard, add curb appeal to your home, and create ambiance when you are outside. Selecting the right lighting is important to enhancing your space, rather than taking away from it. If you are looking to light up your backyard, here are four different types of lighting that can help you with this task.
String and Globe Lights
String lights are no longer just for Christmas. Outdoor string and globe lights can be used to add a warm and whimsical glow to your outdoor space any time of year. When it comes to string lights, you can select from a variety of options, including different colored lights, different shapes and sizes of lights and even twinkling lights. String lights can surround a tree, be hung from a deck or be strung along the roof, to create the aesthetic you are after.
Lantern lights can be placed on patio tables, outdoor side tables, on the edges of a deck, or on the ground beside the pool. Lanterns can be illuminated with a lightbulb or a candle, depending on the lantern you select. Lanterns are available in a variety of colors and sizes, ensuring there is one that will fit in your outdoor space. Lanterns often have an upscale look and feel to them, which is perfect for an adult entertaining space or for setting the mood for a romantic evening.
Solar Pathway Lights
When it is dark outside, you may be unable to see the path in your yard that you are walking on. This can be a tripping or safety hazard. Solar pathway lights can be used to line the path, helping to illuminate your pathway. These lights use sunlight to power them, helping to keep your energy expenses as low as possible. Solar pathway lights are relatively inexpensive and easy to install, which is another advantage to these lights.
Orb or Sphere Lights
The final light option you may be considering for your outdoor space is orb or sphere lights. Orb or sphere lights are on trend right now. These orbs or spheres can be suspended above your deck or patio, or between trees. The ball-shaped lights create a fun and modern look for your outdoor space, while also providing a large amount of light to help brighten up your space.
