St. Louis Backyard Lighting Trends in 2022

As we approach the end of the first quarter of 2022, we want to review some of the biggest lighting trends as spring and summer approach! Each year bears its surprises, but something that never changes is the surge in demand for premium lighting when the outdoor living season returns. As the leading outdoor lighting professionals in St. Louis, we want to share some of the most popular lighting fixtures we are installing this spring. Whether you already have something in mind or are currently searching for ideas, check out these trends to make sure you make the right lighting choice!

LED Outdoor Lighting

There are no surprises here. LED outdoor lighting is the signature component of our brand, and for good reason. Energy-efficient and long-lasting, LED lights are a key component of each project we create. One of our favorite applications for LED lights is in landscape lighting installation. Spring has finally returned, and so have the flowers and foliage that accompany warm weather. If you have landscape features like trees, flowering bushes, gardens, or something similar, why not add lights to ensure your property glows at night just as it does during the day? In addition to highlighting some of your landscaping’s best features, this style is also great for enhanced safety. The odds are slim, but if an intruder decides to make your home a target, St. Louis backyard lighting is an important deterrent.

Bistro Lighting

There’s just something magical about string lights as they hang in the air. Bistro lights are one of our most versatile outdoor living space additions due to their flexibility and durability. Unlike the lights you might see on a Christmas tree, bistro lights are made with robust glass bulbs, solid fixtures, and resilient wiring, which makes these lights perfect for weathering most outdoor conditions. Whether you have a deck, patio, pavilion, or some other outdoor living structure, bistro lights are an incredible way to enhance your space’s ambiance.

Deck and Patio Lighting

In contrast to bistro lights, our deck and patio lighting options are installed directly into your outdoor living space’s physical structure. Handrail lights, riser lights, and upward or downward-facing ambiance lights will create the perfect blend of beauty and safety that you should expect from your outdoor gathering area. This backyard lighting option is a fan favorite because it is sure to enhance your existing outdoor space!

Color-Changing Lighting

This lighting style is the epitome of convenience. Controlled via an app on your phone, these lights will allow you to bathe your property in any color of the rainbow! Customers are especially fond of these lights because they are also able to illuminate your home or backyard in standard white light, too. Further, if you want to decorate your property in colors of a certain holiday or special cause, a few taps of a button and you are all set, with no decoration required!
