I’ve put together a few decks, patios and porches in my day and today I’m sharing a few tips for getting the most from your outdoor spaces. Adding string lights and lanterns is such a great way to add ambience especially when the sun goes down. Lights make any space feel cozy and special, just like a resort space. So make sure you add lighting to your outdoor spaces to make the most of these special spaces of summer. See the whole patio reveal in the previous link. We added string lights to our deck and across our patio as well, creating a beautiful outdoor room. The addition of remote controlled candle lanterns is another great way to add ambience when the sun goes down. Your guests will be so happy as the lights come on and the sun sets over the horizon, filling your outdoor room with beautiful soft light. Stop on by and see how we’ve added beautiful lights to our backyard spaces!
When we fully finished our backyard patio space last year, it was just in time for summer which was much needed in 2020. We spent a lot of time out here last year and plan the same for this summer as well. Adding lights at for night entertaining was the perfect way to use this space to the fullest. Those lights add such a nice ambience.
I also added remote controlled candles to the porch lanterns which cast a beautiful glow at night.
In the blue hour, they ad such a soft ambience to the screened porch.
And the remote controls make it easy to turn them on and off. Here’s a link (affiliate link) to the remote control candles I got for our porch, they’re perfect out here.
We sure enjoy the lights outdoors when the sun goes down. It takes on a whole different look under the glow of the string lights.
