Today, many people are looking for ways to increase their living space. One of the easiest ways to do this is by opening your door and taking advantage of the outdoors. With the addition of outdoor living areas with lighting, you and your loved ones can enjoy your yard no matter the time of day.
But how do you continue your indoor style outdoors? It might seem hard, but it’s much easier than you might think.
Bringing Indoor Styles to Outdoor Lighting
How much time did you spend selecting paint colors for your walls and furniture to fill your rooms? How long did you deliberate over the hardware on your cabinets? Think about all the choices you made. Then, simply make similar decisions when selecting a color palette, fabric, and hardware for your outdoor space(s).
The same is true for your outdoor lighting selections. If your style is formal inside, choose more formal lighting for your outdoor space. Likewise, if you lean toward a more casual vibe, select outdoor lighting that evokes a more relaxed atmosphere.
By following the same style both indoors and outdoors, you will create a seamless flow and blur the lines between your indoor and outdoor living zones.
Clean lines are most commonly used in contemporary, modern, and minimalist design. If this is your decorating style, add lighting with clean lines to your outdoor spaces to give them a modern vibe. Choose lighting with clean lines that is also accented by smooth polished surfaces and open spaces to make a quiet, contemporary statement.
If you design with a modern aesthetic, incorporating lighting with clean lines in your outdoor spaces will create a unified look. It’s also another way that you can bring your indoor styles outdoors.
A chandelier is a hanging light with branches or places for light bulbs. Indoors, chandeliers are usually hung in entryways, dining rooms, and even in bathrooms. Their formality adds sophistication and drama.
Outdoors, chandeliers can hang almost anywhere. But they are most commonly seen in eating areas, gazebos, arbors, or at the front entryway. When you are choosing a chandelier, think about the mood you wish to create. Even though they still give a sense of formality, there are many different styles that range from simple to intricate.
To seamlessly blend your outdoors with your indoors, choose a chandelier that matches your interior decorating style. It’s yet another way you can carry your indoor styles outdoors.
LED Outdoor Lights
LEDs are a great option for outdoor lighting. They are low-voltage and provide greater energy efficiency, superior performance, and longevity. Choosing brass fixtures for your LED outdoor lighting systems give LED bulbs even longer life because the metal pulls heat away from the bulb. The LED/brass combination means your lights will perform in extreme heat and excessive cold without glass breaking or lamps burning out. All of this translates to cost savings and less worry for you.
Call on Outdoor Lighting Designers
If you’re thinking of bringing your indoor style to your outdoor lighting, consider the benefits of hiring an outdoor lighting company. Professionals will you provide both lighting design and installation as well as maintenance. They have the experience and expertise to know the most appropriate types of lights to use, how many to install, and how they should be positioned, so you get the greatest benefits.
