The Perfect Lighting For Your Outdoor Living Space
As the weather starts to cool down and the daylight fades more quickly, you’ll soon need outdoor lighting for your Myrtle Beach sunroom or outdoor space. Whether you have a custom LifeRoom or a Lanai with a dining area and pool, having great lighting outdoors will really enhance your space. With the proper lighting, you can enjoy a dinner party, grill out later in the evenings, or just sit and enjoy a good book. If it’s time to illuminate your outdoor space, consider these lighting ideas.
Light Up the Grill
A task light near the grill on your covered porch with help with cooking the perfect steak. Waterproof lighting is available to help avoid damage from the elements. These lights for your sunroom or lanai are typically flexible, allowing you to change the spotlight position to where you need it most.
If you want to enjoy your Myrtle Beach sunroom late into the evening, mood lighting near your dining area will allow you to enjoy the space throughout the fall months. You can enjoy relaxed dinners under your covered porch or entertain guests with soft lighting from a hanging candelabra, but go with a battery operated version to avoid the dripping wax.
Illuminate Any Steps
If you have steps that lead out to your outdoor space, use floor lighting to lead the way. Even a few stairs that lead up to your Myrtle Beach sunroom can be dangerous if they’re left in the dark. LED step lights are a great addition to your LifeRoom or covered patio entrance. Many step lighting options have automatic dusk-to-dawn sensors, so you don’t have to worry about turning the lights on and off. Not to mention you will likely prevent some serious injuries by adding light to your steps.
Deck or Balcony Railings
Strong or rope lights are a beautiful way to enhance the railing of your Myrtle Beach deck or balcony. Create a festive setting for a dinner party under your gazebo or keep the lights up year-round to use when you want an intimate setting in your Myrtle Beach sunroom.
Bring your covered patio to life with step lights that live the edges of your patio floor. In addition to the floor lighting in your Myrtle Beach covered patio, you can also use task lights that are focused on plants to illuminate the features in the room.
Whether you’re looking for a family hangout spot, want a place to grow your plants, or just need a private retreat, a Myrtle Beach sunroom is the perfect solution. The lighting in your space can build a new mood and allow you to use your sunroom addition even longer into the year.
