Outdoor Decorative Lighting

How To Transform Your Life And Your Yard


You'll need outdoor decorative lighting if your outdoor living dreams include relaxing, cooking, or entertaining after dark. Right?

Fortunately, there's no shortage of practical and aesthetic solutions like:

But your outdoor living roomgazebo ideas, and outdoor kitchen, a.k.a. alfresco palace really becomes art when it's a backdrop for all the custom lighting and special effects you can add.

Tea lights placed on tables, candles in chandeliers, tiny strand lights strung among the trees, and torches stationed around a pool are all examples of ambient lighting.

Use these decorative outdoor lighting ideas to light your space lively. Some of them need electricity, while others need only candles.

Ambient outdoor decorative lighting:

Use ambient light to add mystery and create a festive and romantic mood.

Unlike task lighting, ambient lighting is subtle, not bold.

It draws your attention to what's being illuminated and away from other elements in the landscape.
Outdoor Security Lighting
Candle lanterns:

Dot your outdoor room with a few groupings of translucent candle lanterns placed on tables.

Use white and colorful votives and sprinkle throughout the area to enjoy their cozy ambiance.




Outdoor Lighting Fixture
Hanging glass lanterns:

No need for wires to set the mood.

Hang glass lanterns on hooks attached to metal supports and stick the ends in the ground.

Lift up the globe, light the candle, and dance the night away.


Outdoor Security Lighting
Japanese lanterns:

Both rice paper and vinyl Japanese lanterns diffuse light and create a festive mood.

To pair them with globe lights or fairy lights, attach one bulb inside each lantern and hang in a row along the upper reaches of the area.


Outdoor Deck Lighting
String lights:

Use these inexpensive string lights in your outdoor decorative lighting scheme.

Wind them around tree trunks and tuck them among stems on a fence or railing.

They can also be used to light paper or vinyl lanterns for a real party atmosphere. 


Umbrella lights:

Outdoor Lighting Fixture
One way to create a very effective patio or deck lighting effect is to install LED garden lights inside a canvas table umbrella.

These small fixtures direct the light up through the top of the fabric, filtering a dramatic glow throughout the entire area.

An option for temporary treatments are low cost clip lights.

Clip lights aren't weather resistant and can short out, so remove them after the party is over.

More expensive waterproof fixtures can be installed permanently.


Outdoor Deck Lighting
Torch lights:

Torches come in a wide range of colors, shapes, styles and materials.

Positioning them around the pool, patio, and deck, along pathways or around the perimeter of your
gazebo  creates a festive atmosphere for entertaining.

Use torches in any low-traffic area of the landscape.

Torches use a long-burning gel as a fuel source.


Let your imagination soar:

Outdoor Lighting FixturesAdd a touch of crafty enchantment and whimsy. Fashion your own lamp shade lighting.

Outdoor decorative lighting is fun to experiment with.

Don't be afraid to play with the number of lights, play with the placement and combinations as well.

Every configuration creates a different mood or effect.

For example, Japanese lanterns teamed with strings of LED lights are surprisingly dramatic.

And the beauty of umbrella lights when sharing glows with nearby candles is a breathtaking sight.

So use outdoor decorative lighting to stretch your imagination and creativity.

A crystal chandelier, candleliers (chandeliers with candles instead of bulbs), sconces, table and floor lamps, battery powered canister lights, chili-pepper lights, strands of sparkling stars, tiny pinpoint lights, and whimsical motifs like fish or chili-peppers instantly bring elegance to your outdoor room. They define the room as a place for casual celebrations.

So remember, in the end it's all about relaxing and having a good time with those you care about.
