Your home’s outdoor space is where you relax, entertain, and create summer memories. While you often spend hours lounging or playing in the sunshine, it’s important to consider your yard’s ambiance once the sun goes down. This is where landscape lighting comes in. As you are checking off your list of home improvement projects, be sure to check out these outdoor lighting trends to add some flare to your yard.
1. Trendy Lanterns
This year, lanterns are taking center stage in lighting trends. From your patio tables to your pool deck, decorative lanterns can add a pop of color and style to any landscape design. Moroccan style and rustic lights are particularly popular this summer.
2. Dreamy Path Lighting
Welcome your guests in style with carefully selected path lights. These whimsical details can pull together your overall backyard aesthetic while also increasing safety. Whether you prefer a subtle or bold look, your lighting retailer can help you select path lighting features to fit your needs.
3. Elegant String Lights
You might associate string lights with kids parties and weddings, but these landscape lighting features can be seamlessly integrated into your overall backyard design. The key is to select a sophisticated, high quality design. By doing so, you can drape these lights in trees or around your patio to set a warm tone for every gathering.
4. Rustic Materials
Worn metals such as copper and antique brass are a popular option for this year’s top landscape designers. Talk to your lighting retailer about which metal pieces can work together for an overall rustic look. Mixing these materials with more polished pieces can also create depth in your design.
5. Statement Lamps
While some of your lighting features are meant to blend in, it can be fun to select pieces to stand out. Artistic pieces in bold colors can add flare to your yard. A modern lamp shade, tall floor light, or large hanging lanterns are all examples of these types of statement pieces.
