Your patio is part of your home’s personality. In addition, if your home’s personality is the kind that makes you and your guests feel at home, you’ll want your patio lights to do a little more than just keep you from falling on your face or into the pool when it’s nighttime and fun time. You’ll want your patio lights to reflect you.
You have put so much to reflect you when doing your home; you want your patio lights to reflect it. However, they come in as many styles and with as many accents of their own as did you and your home. Choosing the light that does it without exaggeration will not be easy.
It will be easier than you think. You are not limited to one kind. You can work with a string of lights, basic party lights, umbrella lights, or even all the above-and any one or combination can be made to fit your deck. Which means fitting you.
Unless you want to leave it as just a round of bulbs glowing-suggesting nothing more than the place you hang your coat, eat, and sleep. No, you don’t want to go there. This is you. This is your home. You live here. And you want everything to show it. Including your patio lights.
Maybe you’re the hopeless romantic and you want a string or two of appropriate patio lights. You can opt for the flower look or the holiday globe look. (As in, the light globes that look as though you had extra Christmas tree ornaments to string up.) Maybe you’re the horticulturist to whom there’s no such thing as too few flowers. There are hundreds to try. You might be the rugged outdoors type–lanterns should work. You might be the genial host with two or even three patio tables for your parties-those umbrella lights are looking better every minute. Just like a classy pool club.
In addition, they all look great when it is party time. You have a good group of people joining you for an evening of good drink, good food, good talk, good everything. What do they want to see when they come? They want to see an atmosphere that makes them feel right at home with you. In addition, if you have made your patio lights look like you that are exactly the ways they will feel. Now, just step into the lights and be you
