Outdoor Living I

Posted on April 24th, 2012 in category "Tips"

Often overlooked, outdoor lighting can add value to your property, increase safety and create an atmosphere that will give your guests that welcome feeling.

Creating an outdoor room is a perfect place to start. Already have the BBQ and a patio table? By simply adding a BBQ light or a portable lamp, you have already begun creating your outdoor living space.

Layering outdoor lighting, just like you would do in the interior, will create even more ambience to your space. Maybe add an outdoor fan, a pendant or a chandelier over your table and you will be able to enjoy your outdoor space well beyond sunset.

It was an unbelievable 80+ degrees this weekend on the West Coast (sorry to those back East that had snow); not usual weather for April…but a great weekend for getting the winter doldrums cleared out of the yard! Also a good opportunity to rerun the Outdoor Living series…in case you missed the first time.
