Fall is upon us, which means Daylight Savings Time is not far away. Although receiving an extra hour of sleep for one day is nice, the shorter days and nights ahead feel endless. Fortunately, Lehnhoff’s Supply has a solution to keep you outside, even when it’s dark. Outdoor lighting is the perfect Daylight Savings Time solution you never knew you needed. Keep reading for some ideas about using outdoor lighting in your backyard.
Expands Your Useable Space
When you add outdoor lighting to your property, you’re providing your family with more outdoor living space to use at night. Maybe you have limited indoor space for gatherings or prefer to have parties outdoors whenever possible. Strategically placed outdoor lighting added near your patio will light up the evenings and get everyone outside in the later hours.
Add Lighting to Your Outdoor Kitchen
Whether you have a complete outdoor kitchen or a simple grilling area, you want to see what you’re cooking. After all, you’re dealing with a flame and potentially dangerous cooking utensils. For these reasons, the outdoor kitchen is an area where lighting is critical. One of the first things homeowners realize after adding an outdoor kitchen is that they need better lighting. Without it, they end up tripping over things or making simple mistakes. Or, just as bad, they don’t use their kitchen area to the fullest in the fall season because it’s not highly functional. Great outdoor lighting can make that space more enjoyable and usable.
Light Up Your Pool Area
If you have an outdoor pool and accompanying patio, consider adding outdoor lighting to this area. Placing outdoor lights around your pool creates a safe area for night swimming.
Also, adding lighting to your pool deck encourages your family to spend more time together, no matter the time of day. You can choose outdoor lights to match the lighting already in place or mix up the styles a bit, such as using classic and ornate design options simultaneously.
Lighted Paths for Added Safety
One of the most irritating parts about coming home at night is not seeing where to walk. Lights on the paths up to your doorway entrances allow you to know where you’re going and keeps you and your guests safe. This way, guests won’t interfere with your landscaping and gardens. Outdoor lighting also keeps your home safe from any intruders. If you have outdoor lighting, potential intruders will think twice before coming to your property.
