Houses and garden in the city at midnight.

This magical season has come again! We are now getting shorter days but one can still stay outside and enjoy a relaxing warm drink at sunset or even hours after the sun has gone down. If your home has a porch or a yard, then you must know how important it is to have appropriate lighting to suit not only the season but more importantly the mood you are trying to achieve or the activities you have planned.

 

Fall is one of the best seasons to redecorate your outdoor space as well. Make sure you have the perfect lighting setup to emphasize your furniture and of course, your fall-themed décor. Here are some of tips to know which outdoor lighting you should consider this fall.

 

ADJUSTABLE LIGHTING

Adjustable lighting is a great option this fall, as well as other seasons.  They may have an industrial look but you’ll love how these lights can be twisted to give off soft lighting for an ambient feel. You can also opt for shaper light with them if you need direct lighting in your seating area or if the nights are darker.

 

CAFÉ STRING LIGHTS

If you are planning to host a fun dinner for family and friends, then this season is perfect if you want to do it in your backyard. Add a festive yet warm feel to your outdoor space using café string lights. They come at different prices. The most affordable strings may be found at big-box stores. You can also find more expensive units from specialty lighting companies. The latter of course, are expected to be more durable.

 

LED LANDSCAPE LIGHTS

You may want a lovely soft glow just around your outdoor space. For this, LED landscape lights would be a great choice. They can illuminate your flower beds, line some winding pathways, and just bring out the beauty of your space. LED landscape lights do not want attention for themselves. Instead they highlight all the other elements of your fall setting. They can help create a balanced look of natural outdoor fun and warm man-made comfort.

 

There may be a variety of lighting options perfect for this season. What you should not forget is that good lighting is not enough. In fact, most designers would agree, the lighting is only as good as the setting they’re shedding light on. To get the perfect look for autumn, choose furniture that give off that homey and rustic look that goes well with fall. Palm Casual has great options for you!
