Liven Up Your Home’s Outdoor Lighting This Spring – Part 1

Springtime in Maryland will be a season of more excellent weather after winter. Your family and guests will spend more time in your home’s outdoor areas. Livening up your home’s outdoor lighting will also allow everyone to enjoy the nights there. The following will discuss the best approaches for improving your exterior lighting.

Patios & Gardens

Your patio and adjoining garden are areas that can often use additional lighting. They can still be enjoyed even after the sun sets by adding several lights. Consider choosing a soft and subtle lighting design to illuminate the walking path. However, consider installing lights that illuminate a large area for events like birthday parties and 4th of July barbecues. What more fun? Add colored lights to make a party more festive.


Install a lantern at every support beam of the railing, illuminating the general area. On the borders of the deck area, add landscape lighting on the grass to make the deck stand out at night. Consider installing deck lights to brighten your deck’s interior.


Porch railings can be decorated with string lights, creating playful accent illumination. Lanterns can be used for brightening up each support beam. Consider installing pendant lights for enclosed porches for your outdoor dinner evenings. Installing a new outdoor fan with a light fixture will make balmy nights more pleasant by cooling the environment. Add step lights on porch steps to promote both safety and beauty.


A playful concept is running rope lights across railings and directing them upward on the support beams of the balconies. Rope lights are available in various colors. They are a cost-effective way to add accent lighting that transforms how a terrace looks at night.
