Do you typically head in from your outdoor living space once the sun begins to set? If so, do not limit your outdoor living space to only daylight hours. With adequate lighting, you can entertain, host dinner parties, or simply relax outdoors throughout the evening.
- Create a relaxing atmosphere with string lights. This inexpensive solution will create a café-look to your space. You will get the longest lifespan out of LED lights, but incandescent lights are required if you want a soft glow. Solar string lights are available if connecting the lights to a power outlet is a problem or you are concerned about environmental impact.
- Use sconces to illuminate your patio. Pick lantern fixtures rather than a single mounted flush to create a greater glow.
- Add low-voltage landscape lighting. Alone, landscape lighting is usually not enough to fully illuminate an outdoor living space, but it can work very well when used alongside the above options.
- Use pendant lights for elegance. You can replace a current fixture with a pendant provided the new fixture is not much heavier. Pendants that weigh more require a junction box be installed by a professional.
