Fall is here, the leaves are beginning to change their colors and the air is refreshingly cool and breezy. It’s the perfect time to spend your evenings watching sunsets, entertaining, or just sipping tea on the porch. Of course, the sun is setting a bit earlier, so you’re going to need a few lighting tips as you enjoy the change in season.
Cafe String Lights
Cafe string lights are an elegant and simple way to fill large areas with inviting illumination and ambiance. White or yellow lights are easy to find and go well with Fall colors. String lights can illuminate outdoor and entry areas and it’s a great way to ease your friends and family into increasingly earlier sunsets as we move through to Winter.
As you begin to embrace the popular tradition of outdoor holiday decorating, using festive accents are a nice way to enhance the effect of an external lighting system. Jack-o-lanterns are a handy way to light up the edges of the pathways trick-or-treaters will be using to reach your door on Halloween night.
Security Lighting with a Twist
Security lighting can be a nice way to add an additional layer of safety to your home’s exterior. But it doesn’t have to be all business. With a little creativity, you can incorporate security lights into your seasonal decorating and make them as inviting as they are functional.
If you have a pool, pond, or any kind of outdoor feature that uses water, then you have a terrific opportunity to make special use of lighting. Similarly to the way mirrors can make a room feel more expansive, water can act as a light multiplier. Just a small amount of outdoor lighting strategically placed around water features is a great way to get the most out of your outdoor lighting.
