We’re blessed here in Richmond with generally beautiful weather. Outdoor living spaces truly become an extension of the home and a place to entertain family and friends 3 seasons out of the year. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives allows our clients to get the most out of their spaces with custom designed patio and deck lights, but sometimes, you want a little something extra.
String lights have been growing in popularity over the last few years. They’ve been synonymous with Christmas lighting for as long as we can remember, but now they can be used for so much more with the advancements of technology.
The lights homeowners hang around the holidays are made for outdoor use, but they aren’t made to withstand the elements all year round. OLP’s outdoor string lights are however and they can make any outdoor living space a little more charming. If you held them in your hand, you’d know they are different than holiday lighting. They have heavy cords and large bulbs designed to be permanent fixtures in an outdoor space. Not just for looks, the bulbs provide enough light output to properly illuminate the spaces below.
Take this backyard patio for example; it’s a great living area. With ample space to entertain it’s the perfect area to host outdoor barbecues or parties. The homeowners, however, wanted to increase the aesthetics and appeal. The traditional backyard lighting design wouldn’t do. Our trained designers suggested adding outdoor string lights. With the installation, the space has gone from a nice patio to an attractive bistro-style backyard.
This design isn’t made just for residential applications, it’s great for hospitality and commercial properties as well. Imagine visiting a hotel with elegant string lights hanging over walkways, outdoor common areas, etc. How nice would that be? This commercial space used string lights as a way to connect buildings and make the space a little more inviting to patrons.
Gone are the days when outdoor string lights were made solely for holiday applications. If you’re looking to enhance your space with this unique application, please contact Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Richmond.
