Humans and outdoor lighting have experienced significant evolution together. It’s been a long journey.
Outdoor Lighting Ideas
Like many of us, you’ve probably invested a whole lot into the design of that beautiful home of yours. During the day, it looks absolutely cozy and inviting—and that magic shouldn’t fade away when the sun goes down.
Q: My front porch light barely puts off enough light to get my key into the lock. I’m ready to replace it, but how can I tell if it’s going to be as bright as I need?
A: When it comes to the front stoop, you want to have enough light to move and function safely. You should be able to walk up the drive with ease, spot your keys in your handbag and create enough illumination that nefarious characters don’t see the space as an invitation.
Days are longer, temperatures are higher and entertaining outdoors is lasting long into the night. To keep the party going after the sun goes down, you need to add light to your outdoor space. So what’s an easy way to add light that still packs a big design punch? String lights!
When searching for ways to illuminate our most private, treasured outdoor living spaces—where we want to get the atmosphere just right—we should be encouraged to think outside the box, the same way we do to dress up our indoor spaces.
There’s nothing better than lounging around your backyard on a warm summer day. Enjoying the sun on your face as you recline on your favorite outdoor lounge chair or hammock is simply sublime. Once it starts getting dark, though, many people feel compelled to move indoors. However, you don’t have to go inside just because the sun goes down.
Every spring I get an itch for change, major change. Being cooped up inside during the winter will leave any sane person with cabin fever, and I am no exception. It’s that time of year again, and I have been looking for ways to make major changes to my home without breaking the bank or putting in a ton of manpower.
