Check out these Outdoor Lighting Trends of 2022
Color-Changing Smart Systems
The #1 outdoor lighting trend of 2022 is the color-changing smart outdoor lighting systems. Are you looking for outdoor lighting that you can change anytime, based on your mood, the seasons, holidays, or parties? You can find smart lights in many different sizes and designs, many of them with the ability to change colors. You will be able to control these lights from your phone app or a remote, changing colors to match the holiday. You can also dim them and turn them on and off with your smartphone app.
LED Outdoor Lighting
There are many benefits to adding LED outdoor lights to your home. LED lights have a long bulb life of up to 50,000 hours. They are more energy-efficient, saving you money and having less impact on the environment. You will find up to 80% more efficiency in LED lights versus Halogen.
Bistro Lighting, also known as Strand or String Lighting, are lights that are strung together and installed above your outdoor space. These can set an amazing atmosphere for any outdoor space all year long, or they can be used for additional decoration for your parties. Common uses are over swimming pools, patios, decks, and between your favorite trees.
Hardscape lighting is generally used in areas such as walkways, outdoor kitchens, or retaining walls. Usually using a soft light pointing downwards, you can light up dark areas or highlight special features of your property without too much light pollution. You can also add some hardscape lighting to draw attention around your fire pit or to add some ambient glow under landscape wall capstones.
