Summer is officially here and Independence Day is right around the corner! While some people may spend the holiday weekend enjoying a mini vacation outside of Omaha, other people will spend it entertaining with a summer soiree at home. So, with the Fourth of July in mind, we wanted to share some patriotic outdoor lighting ideas to incorporate some red, white, and blue into the mix...
Ideas to Light up Your Outdoor Entertainment Area
LED Tape is a great lighting option for your outdoor entertainment areas, especially outdoor kitchens, bars, or deck railings. You can have it set to regular white year-round, and then switch up the colors for special occasions, like Independence Day and other festive holidays or special occasions.
Looking for something subtle, yet festive? Outdoor string lights are perfect for outdoor dining, entertaining, and gather areas because of their versatility. The lights are endlessly adaptable to design patterns and configurations, making them ideal for various types of decks, patios, pergolas, and other outdoor spaces.
Make Your American Flag a Focal Point at Night
Whether your entertaining or not, you can show your patriotism by illuminating your American flag throughout the night. Depending on the size and location of the flag, a few lights near the base of the flagpole makes a tremendous difference at night. The light makes your flag a strong focal point and brings out its beautiful colors against the dark sky.
Color Changing Options for Landscape Lighting
Besides LED tape light, there are other ways to corporate color changing options into your landscape lighting design. A designer will be able to provide the best options given your space. Here we used color changing bulbs to make this water feature more festive. You can set it at the normal color temperature for year-round pleasure and then change it for special occasions.
This Fourth of July, celebrate America's birthday in style by incorporating any of these star-spangled favorites into the mix. And the best part? While these patriotic outdoor lighting ideas are perfectly festive for the occasion, you can utilize them all year long.
