What's Cool in Outdoor Lights for Summer
No matter the size of your outdoor space, you can easily use lighting to create the perfect ambience this summer. Here are some of the coolest options for outdoor lights you need to make the most of your outdoor space as the weather warms up.
Solar lighting is one of the most popular options to choose when it comes to outdoor lighting for summer. Solar lighting is popular as it does not require wiring and is completely weatherproof, so you can install you outside lights and then simply wait for it to get dark in order to enjoy a dazzling array of garden lights. Solar lights can be used to highlight specific areas or pathways, often called spike lights as they pitch directly into the ground, or you can instead opt for directional solar lights if you want to highlight specific areas, such as garden statues or particular plants. Solar string lights are also a great choice to highlight gazebo areas or to run along fences to enjoy hundreds of fairy lights as soon as the sun goes down.
LED lanterns are another popular choice when it comes to summer outdoor lighting as they can be placed almost anywhere, making them a great option for those who may only have a small garden or just a balcony that they still want to illuminate once the nights turn warmer. LED lanterns help to create a sophisticated and relaxing ambience that are the perfect complement for outdoor dining and once again do not require wiring as they operate via an internal battery which can detect once it is dark enough for the light to turn on. LED lanterns are also available in a very realistic candle variety, which can also be a great choice for those looking to add a touch of romance to their outside lighting this summer. LED lanterns are one of the most cost effective outdoor lighting options you can choose too, so why not try out a few different sizes and styles to create a relaxed and unique outdoor lighting space.
High Level Lighting
When it comes to making the most of your outdoor space this summer, high level lighting can really help to transform any outdoor dining area, no matter how big or small. Festoon lights are popular for big summer outdoor occasions, such as weddings and parties, but you can easily enjoy their same bohemian charm at home too. Simply opt to suspend a string of festoon lights across a trellis or over a dining area to create a magical fairy garland effect. If you have a gazebo or canopy, you can also choose to try using outdoor pendant lighting too, which can be hung from above to create a brighter light source if you want to make sure you can dine al fresco on a regular basis, even in very low lighting. Outdoor pendant lights are available in a wide selection of colours and styles, making it a great way to transform an unassuming outdoor area into a garden wonderland. Paper lanterns are also a fun outdoor lighting trend to try, and with lots of sizes and colours to choose from they can make your garden look beautiful at night without having to spend too much money either.
