String lights are an affordable, low-voltage lighting option that welcomes a warm mood. They are easy to hang, customizable, and long-lasting. Because they are so easy to hang, you can set them up and bring them down wherever and whenever the party’s going.
You also have many options for what kind of string lights you want. String lights come in different colors, sizes and shapes. You also have a lot of options in terms of power sources. Some of your options include rechargeable, battery-powered or solar-powered. Whatever you decide to go with, string lights are sure to add a lot of character to your outdoor recreation area.
Decks are already the perfect spot to get cozy on a cool summer night. Adding the perfect lighting to your deck can take it to the next level. Not only are they essential to navigating your deck at night but they also add a certain level of comfort that wouldn’t be there otherwise.
Installing LED lights around steps and the base of the deck will make the area much easier and safer to navigate at night. With the range of LED options you have, you can customize your lights to your heart’s content and even adjust the colors for different occasions.
Have large trees, shrubs, or other yard decorations? Install some spotlighting to show them off. Also known as up-lighting or landscape lighting, spotlighting is used to shine narrow, moderate-to high- intensity beams upwards. These lights are great when you want to showcase a nice piece in your yard.
They are also simple to use and easy to install. You simply drive the spotlight into the ground like a stake and then adjust the settings to your liking. Though spotlights are great for very tall objects, you can also try well lights for smaller decorations. Spotlights, while great for showcasing an object, aren’t great at illuminating areas. If you are looking for lights to brighten up a large area, you should look elsewhere.
Path lights add nice soft lighting to pathways around your home. These lights make it much easier to navigate walkways while adding a nice charm. These lights are also easy to install and use, only requiring you to drive them into the ground and adjust the settings on the unit.
Path lights aren’t only for walkways though. You can also use them to brighten up your garden, fences, or other areas around your home. Because these lights are solar-powered, you’ll never have to worry about charging them or changing out batteries, making them not only a comfy lighting option but an eco-friendly one.
