Summer is the season for outdoor entertaining, and when you’re surrounded by friends and family, it’s easy to let those afternoon barbecues stretch into the warm night. It’s going to get dark whether your guests are ready to go home or not, so you’ve got to brighten things up to keep the party going. If you want illumination that’s as talked about as your margaritas, there’s only one way to go: cafe lighting.
Cafe-style illumination is the #1 outdoor entertaining must-have for a variety of reasons:
Shine on a Large, Specific Area
Cafe lights are an easy way to bring brilliance to a big space without over lighting. With cones that direct the light down, you might only need a few bulbs to light your patio with very little spillover into the rest of your yard or a neighbor’s yard.
Enjoy a Wide Range of Style Options
Big or small, square or rounded, modern or traditional: whatever vibe you want to create, you can do it with cafe lighting. You also have your choice of a wide range of colors and materials for the cones over your lights, or you could go with naked bulbs. Vintage looking Edison bulbs are all the rage right now. It’s easy to find a style that suits your tastes and the rest of your decor.
Create a Mood
Cafe lights say, “Welcome. Kick back. Relax with us.” They take an ordinary patio and turn it into the site of an event. They are inviting, add warmth, and create a coziness that typical porch lights or landscape lighting isn’t capable of creating. Your guests might not be able to explain why, but they’ll know they prefer to spend their summer evenings at your home.
