If you’re looking to improve the look of your backyard, spending the time planning a lighting scheme will help do that. Some people view outdoor lighting as expensive, but it’s possible to implement outdoor lights to give your backyard a warm glow affordably if you know what to look for.
Outdoor lighting is also a great way to highlight your hot tub investment, making it the centerpiece of the backyard with the right knowledge about all of the available options.
1. Led Light Strips
Led light strips are a cost-effective way to add accent lighting to anything in the backyard. There are many ways to implement LED light strips. While you could put LED strips all over the backyard, they really shine when used sparingly.
The best way to utilize LED strips in to place them underneath your hot tub. Before doing so, check to make sure the LED strips are waterproof.
Many LED strips come premanufactured with durable adhesive on the back of them so they should be relatively easy to adhere to the four sides of your tub. By doing this, the hot tub will have a nice glow around it.
2. Orbital Lanterns
Orbital lanterns can be found in all sizes, and they make the perfect statement when going for a whimsical look. In order to get the biggest bang for your buck, try to place orbital lanterns above key points of interest.
It’s possible to place one over a hot tub if the hot tub is underneath a structure like a deck or awning. Don’t forget that orbital lanterns come in all types of funky shapes. For a more whimsical look, opt for orbital lanterns that are oblong instead of perfectly round!
3. Pendant Lighting
Many people associate pendant lights with their dining room, but there are also outdoor varieties that can be used to terrific effect.
When pendant lighting is already in a home, placing it outside gives an entire property a cohesive look. What makes pennant lights even more desirable is their ability to be strung in most places.
4. Chinese Paper Lanterns
Chinese lanterns are great for two reasons: they give off a soft, warm glow and they can be DIY with a little ingenuity. Chinese lanterns hung from trees can give a homely feeling to a dark backyard.
They can also be used in conjunction with brighter string lights to create a dazzling effect that will leave your guests awe-inspired when they enter the backyard!
5. Tiki Torches
The great thing about tiki torches is that you can find them just about anywhere. They’re a wonderful addition to a tropical-themed yard, but they are also invaluable to people concerned about their electricity bill. Place some tiki torches around your hot tub, and guests will feel like they’re on a beach vacation in Hawaii!
