With warm summer nights, a key factor in the enjoyment of your outdoor space is lighting. There are a variety of home decor products available for lighting up your outdoo space.
Candles offer romantic, low light but don’t stand up to wind. Inexpensive solar lights can give off an eerie blue light that may not create the atmosphere you’re looking for.
We’ve summed up our top three choices for exterior lighting home decor products to guide you in the decorating of your outdoor space.
1. Recessed Lights
Outdoor recessed lighting (often called can lights, or pot lights) can be used in many different ways. Modern recessed lighting has been incorporated into verandas, outdoor living rooms, garden pathways and decks. There is almost no limit to their functionality.
With that said, the look of recessed lighting can get tired over time. Luckily there’s a simple, cost-effective solution to instantly update exterior recessed lighting: use EzClipse recessed lighting covers to update older can lights or pot lights.

2. Dark Sky Lights
Dark sky lights are a modern lighting option, consisting of a shade that directs light downwards. This serves multiple purposes including keeping paths well lit, house numbers visible as well as reducing light pollution. There are many styles available at most home renovation stores.
3. Solar Powered Lights
Solar lights are great for keeping energy bills at bay as well as lighting outdoor spaces that make not have access to power. Going beyond solar powered LED stake lights, there are solar powered string lights to add some twinkle and brand new floor lamps. There are lots of ways to get creative with these cord-free lights!
Whether you’re preparing a balcony, backyard or outdoor living room consider the impact of lighting on the use of the space. Combining a variety of lights in an exterior space will provide for a well thought-out, functional space that will demonstrate your personal style and allow for great enjoyment all season long.
