How to Use String Lighting

The summer months are a popular time for outdoor barbecues and relaxed, indoor dinner parties on cool evenings. Do you have the proper lighting to create the atmosphere you want in your indoor or outdoor living space? You may have plenty of fixtures installed, but too much light or not enough can impact your ambiance. If you love DIY projects, hanging your own string lighting is a fun and stylish way to create soft lighting.

Available Styles of String Lighting

For a simple look, there are LED bulbs on black string available. Not only will your lighting be stylish, but you will save on energy costs with LED! If you’re looking to make a bolder statement, American Lighting string lighting also comes with marble-etched or vintage Edison bulbs. Additionally, if you don’t like the look of fully exposed bulbs on string, Candelabra sockets offer a more refined appearance.

String Lighting Outdoors

Depending on the size of your yard, you can either light the area completely with string lighting or complement your existing fixtures with layers of additional light. If you have a large outdoor patio, string lighting allows you to create a roof line with the lights by stringing them across the area to opposite poles or lamp posts. In a smaller, more intimate space, simply run the strands across the actual roof line of your home for the added ambiance you desire. Along with the glow from a fire pit and a few pathway lights, you’ll have the perfect atmosphere for a summer evening party.
