What’s not to love about spring? The sun is shining, flowers are blooming and the smell of fresh cut grass is in the air—well, hopefully if you’re not battling snow flurries like some on the East Coast. In any case, the spring season is an ideal time to get outdoors to play and entertain.
In preparation for its arrival, many people will dust off the old patio chairs and arrange their warm-weather setup for home entertaining and celebrations. For those who could use an upgrade, we’ve provided a variety of tips to revamp your outdoor décor and lighting to make spring even more enjoyable.
We also recommend avoiding lights that are too bright as subtlety is key for creating a “moon lit” feel in your space.
These lamps are available in LED options, which operate on little energy, keeping electricity costs at bay or allowing the use of solar/battery power to operate.
In addition to longer lifespans and energy savings, LEDs are more durable and vibration-resistant, making them the better option for outdoor use.
While spring brings a variety of pleasantries, the warmer weather also invites a lot of critters, especially bugs. Although light tends to attract bugs at night, there’s a way to keep the lights on while warding insects off.
Switch to yellow-hued light bulbs for all outdoor lighting because it provides sufficient brightness without attracting the bugs.
While spotlights can be off-putting when creating a serene environment, highlighting focal points of your yard can add texture and character. We recommend LED spot and flood lights which are known for retaining light levels, conserving energy and ensuring the yard shines bright for this summer and many more in the future.
Create a starry night effect by wrapping twinkling light strands around columns and trees or weaving them through foliage.
Batteries Plus Bulbs even offers LED options of string lights that are shatterproof and fire-safe, perfect for throwing a backyard birthday party.
Opt for battery-powered tea lights rather than candles to avoid wax dripping and wind blowing, putting your furniture and foliage at risk.
