How to Use Outdoor Lighting

If you have an outdoor entertaining area, is it well lit so you can use it during the evening and night hours too? If not, you might want to consider buying some outdoor lighting so you and your guests can enjoy the great outdoors even after the sun has set. We sell lighting near Wilmington Delaware, and we have a few suggestions about outdoor areas that definitely need some lighting.

Stairs

Considering how dangerous stairs can be even during the daylight hours, it’s a good idea to have some good lighting around any stairs, even if there are only a few steps. Lighting helps people see where they are going, which can help decrease the chance of someone falling and hurting themselves.

Entrance

If you have an entrance to your outdoor space that is also outdoors (as compared to having to go through your home to get to the outdoor area), having some lighting around the entrance is a great idea. Not only does it also make the area safer for you and your guests, but it can make the entire space seem more welcoming and inviting.

Walkways

Walkways also should be well lit for safety reasons. Plus, this is a great way to draw your guests’ attention to any features you want to highlight, like flowers or a statue or water feature.

Patio

A lot of outdoor living and entertaining spaces feature a patio of some sort. Having some outdoor lighting around this area helps your guests see better as well. Plus, it makes entertaining easier overall. Your guests can see around them, and if you are passing out food or drinks, it’ll be easier for everyone to see what is going on.
