4 Outdoor Lighting Ideas For Your Exterior Living Space

The lighting in your outdoor areas can make all the difference, and it can also add some value to your home as well. There are actually several lighting options to choose from, but our team from Handyman Connection of Butler Warren lists four that you should try out. Read on to find out what they are.

Exterior Living Space

  1. String Lights

String lighting is the most versatile outdoor lighting option, and can potentially cover the largest area. But the biggest draw with using this is that there’s no reason to hide the wiring since it’s part of the design. Additionally, you can install it vertically or horizontally. If you have a deck area, we suggest installing it in a way that covers your entire deck – starting from the house’s exterior wall to the end of your deck area.

  1. Sand Candles

Not feeling the look of the run-of-the-mill wax candles? Try sand candles instead. These are basically wax candles placed inside glass containers with colored bands of sand. These come in a range of sizes, and the best part is that you can create them on your own. Just make sure you know how to properly mix the sand colors and keep them intact.

  1. Floating Candles

If you want truly unique lighting for your outdoor space, why not try letting your candles float on water? The coin-sized candles can actually float on standing water and take a surprisingly long time to run out. Add a dash of petals from your garden patch and you have some nice lighting for a romantic dinner outdoors with your partner.

  1. Bamboo Lanterns and Candles

Bamboo lanterns and candles are an alternative to your standard wooden-frame lighting fixtures. Apart from its unique appearance, bamboo is also sturdier than your run-of-the-mill wood. Some bamboo candles even have built-in shelves, turning them into portable lighting fixtures.
