4 Lighting Ideas to Boost Your Outdoor Living Areas

Your outdoor living area doesn’t have to look drab. It may have all the elements necessary to make it stand out, but adding a touch of lighting makes all the difference. Incorporating this aspect gives your outdoor space a livelier and more stylish look, especially at nighttime. Handyman Connection of Matthews provides some ideas to brighten up this part of your home.

Lights on a String

Holiday-style string lights are a simple way to not just brighten but also provide an accent for your patio or deck. While they look great on their own, they can be covered with colored shades to boost the outdoor living space further.

Floating Candles

Lit candles floating on standing water are a unique way to approach lighting for your outdoor space. Such candles are small, circular and take a long time to run out. For a more romantic flair, sprinkle some flower petals over the water.

Bamboo Candles and Lanterns

Another way to provide lighting for your patio or deck makes use of a material seen as an alternative to your standard wood. Bamboo’s unique appearance also offers an unconventional element to the whole design scheme of the outdoor living area.

LED Lights

Apart from enhancing the aesthetics of your outdoor space, LED lighting also serves a great function. LED strips, for instance, can be installed along the base of pathways or stairs to ensure a safe outdoors. True enough, they guide guests during parties and help senior members of the family see clearly as they enjoy a walk outside.
