Outdoor lighting can brighten up your backyard space and create an inviting effect as you walk through it after dark. To install outdoor lighting, you need high-quality lights that you can strategically place in your backyard to achieve the ambience you want. Here are three tips for adding outdoor lighting to your property in Birmingham, AL.
1. String Lighting
This is a perfect lighting choice to create an intimate and warm setting for entertaining. The main advantage of these lights is that you can hang them when you have a party or cookout in your backyard space and remove them once the occasion is over, if you choose to do so. They come in different lengths, so you can pick strings of lights that will give you just the effect you’re looking for.
Solar-powered string lights come with a solar panel and powerful LED lights, thus eliminating the need to run electrical extension cords across your yard. They’re some of the best outdoor lights you can use in Birmingham, AL.
2. Path Lighting
A well-lit path is welcoming and safer to navigate. It also adds a festive touch that makes guests feel welcome. Path lights come in low-voltage versions between 12 and 15 volts, or you can choose the solar option.
3. Deck Lights
You may have installed a deck as a spot where you can chill in your backyard. Deck lights are a nice addition to appreciate as you enjoy your outdoor dinner. You can install deck lights around the perimeter of your deck or even along the deck stair railings.
