We’ve all heard the term Christmas in July and we at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Richmond not only believe in celebrating Christmas in July, but we think it has its place throughout the entire year! The city of Richmond comes to life with outdoor Christmas lights in December, but those same lights can be used at all times of the year!
No, we aren’t telling your neighbors it’s OK to put their candy cane shaped lights out in the front yard now, but there is always a place for colored string and laser lights. Families have been using string lights for the holidays for years, but outdoor lighting technology has made huge strides in the last few years. Some string lights are now high-quality enough to be hung and used all year round outdoors. The key is to make sure you get the right lights to ensure they are safe for outdoor use and can withstand the elements.
String and café lights are a popular backyard lighting option in the Midlothian, Manakin Sabot and the Greater Richmond area. They can be hung over porches, decks and patios to create a warm and inviting spaces. It’s also common to see string lights wrapped around trees, bushes and railing.
For homeowners that want to add ambiance from time to time in a space but aren’t interested in a semi-permanent installation, we recommend our Starry Lights fixtures. These small LED laser-based fixtures can be taken in and out of space easily and can be recharged when not in use. So what’s the difference? Starry Lights shoots hundreds of small light bursts towards a surface that looks like string lights without the time it takes to hang them.
Both string and Starry Lights brighten up a space and create a fun environment. They are perfect for Christmas lighting, of course, but they are also wonderful for fun nights outside with friends and family. And, if you’re interested in colored lights, we have you covered. Just ask us about the available options!
