Whether you choose to hang lights, mount them to the siding or both, it’s important to choose a style that best suits you and the home. Although having proper outdoor lighting plays a significant role in safety, don’t let that be your only consideration. This is the time to be creative.
Highlight an outdoor dining table or seating on a patio area for reclining with a drink at the end of the day. You can achieve this by strapping spot lights onto overhead trellising or the sturdy branches of a nearby tree. This way the light will shine downwards, avoiding glare in the eyes and help create more of a cosy and intimate atmosphere. In the following image the downlighters work beautifully hung from the overhead roofing.
Incidentally, to get what lighting experts refer to as a ’moonlighting’ effect, hang the lights around 30 ft high and just above the lower branches of a tree. This way the light will filter down through the leaves on the lower branches, creating a pattern of light and shadows.
From pontoons to private courtyards, you can add ambience even without a power point. Line paths with festoons and team with lanterns at floor level. For use night after night, plump for outdoor battery lights with a timer function for the ultimate in low maintenance. For warmer climates then it’s worth taking a peek at some solar garden lights as an even more eco-friendly option.
