Making the smallest changes in our homes often have the biggest effects. In this blog post, we’ll talk about the way lighting can transform an outdoor space. And don’t worry, you won’t need to enlist the help of a professional. Here are four ideas for DIY outdoor lighting.

Outdoor patio lighting

Although patio season has sadly passed, there’s no reason you can’t make the most of your outdoor sitting area all-year round. Now that it’s getting dark earlier, it’s best to use multiple light sources for your patio. Try hanging outdoor string lights around the outside of the house, and installing path lights around the perimeter.

LED lights

Not only are LED lights highly efficient and look great, they are also far better for the environment. There are a wide variety of outdoor LED light fixture types available, from LED path and step lights to LED rope and string lights.

Deck lighting

Make the most of outdoor lighting. Think not only about the appearance of your outdoor space, but the safety of the area too. Ensure deck lighting highlights your steps, and install lights around the perimeter of the deck too.

Pond lighting

As with deck lighting, installing pond lights ensures your outdoor space not only looks good, but that people can move around safely at night. Think about adding lights around the pond’s exterior to make the surface or the water flow, or to accentuate a waterfall or other feature. Underwater lighting can also be used to highlight fountains or sculptures.
