Our backyards and patios should be much more than just areas of our property. They should be outside rooms built around enjoyment. One of the easiest ways you can almost instantly transform the vibe of your backyard or patio is to install bistro lighting.
In this issue, we’ll talk about it.
Simply put, bistro lighting is the hanging of decorative string lights across a fence, from the roof of a structure or from practically anything that will support them. You don’t have to wait for a special occasion to enjoy bistro lighting; rather it can simply be an every night thing.
In fact, the flexibility of bistro lighting is among its top appeals. While bistro lighting can quickly convert the mood of the environment to one of pure jubilation, it can also toned down a bit to create a more intimate setting.
The most popular way is to run strings of lights in a zigzag pattern across your space.
Other clever ways include wrapping the lights:
First off, if you’re trying to create an atmosphere, avoid floodlights, which tend to overpower their surroundings. Also, avoid going to the local store and buying strings of holiday lights.
What’s needed for the full effect is lighting specifically intended for bistro lighting. These lights have a specific coating that will protect them from the elements and are designed and built to last for years.
