Outdoor living has made a huge resurgence in the last decade or so. Outdoor kitchens, outdoor fireplaces, stone patios with water features, three season rooms, stamped concrete designs, etc. With all of this outdoor living, comes a need for lighting at night.

Bright Ideas to Light Up the Night
Here are just a few ideas for inspiration that you can incorporate into your patio, deck or pool area. Some are DIY, but others may require a professional electrician like Jeremy Electrical. Either way, you’ll be excited to add a little light to your backyard after you see these ideas.
String Along with Me
String lights add just the right touch of twinkle throughout your outdoor area. No glaring bright lights shining in your face, just a little glow. Whether you hang them taut, loose, straight or at an angle, the effect is the same magical.
Chandeliers Add a Touch of Class
If you have a covered area, consider adding a chandelier. Chandeliers are not just for indoor rooms anymore! Add a touch of class to any outdoor room with a chandelier, or two, or three! Even a whole collection adds a bohemian vibe.
Built-In Lights Create a Soft Way to See Steps and Add Safety
Sometimes these lights are actually built in while the patio or deck is being built, but most can be added after the project is done. You can choose wired lighting or solar lighting. Either will do the job and add the ambiance you want.
Swing for the Fences
If your backyard is enclosed by a fence, or your patio is surrounded by a wall, that’s a great place to add lighting. Lighting expands the perimeter of your yard at night and adds a feeling of coziness. It can be as simple as hanging a few lanterns on the fence.
Don’t Forget the Trees
If you are lucky enough to have trees in your backyard, include them in your lighting plan. Trees wrapped in lights or draped in lights create a mystical, woodland feel when the sun goes down. Blur the line between indoor and outdoor living by incorporating these green giants into your outdoor landscape at night.
