Getting the Most Out of Your Cookouts with Unique Outdoor Lighting

There are only a few more weeks left in the summer, so live it up! Enjoy the nice summer nights outdoors with friends and family while you can. We all know that proper outdoor lighting is important when it comes to outdoor entertaining, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have fun and be creative with it! Here are some fun outdoor lighting ideas that our lighting designers have sent me.

Nothing says summer like umbrella drinks and palm trees, even in areas of the country that don’t have palm trees. I love the above pictured LED palm tree. The first thing that catches my eye is the color. It’s bright and joyful. Doesn’t it make you smile? Placing a few around an outdoor pool area like this is so much fun. The key is to get ones that are good quality that you can use year after year.

Who says you can bring a little elegance to your patio? Our Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Kansas City owner sent me this picture of a recent project. The homeowners have a beautiful covered porch that they use for dining and entertaining. They really wanted the space to feel like an extension of their home and needed more than the typical flood lights. So the OLP team installed an outdoor chandelier! It’s it great?

Last week I talked about outdoor string lights, but they don’t just need to be for the holidays. Use them now! Some of our franchisees have installed string lights likes these over outdoor living areas as well for outdoor parties. They are a great way to bring some light into the space in an intimate and unique way. Make sure that you get high quality bulbs that can withstand any outdoor elements.

We love it when our clients ask us for unique designs and installs for outdoor entertaining. Our goal is to make sure that you get the most out of your outdoor spaces, and sometimes that isn’t the typical lighting package.
