Incorporating tiki torch fixtures into your low-voltage landscape lighting design can transform your backyard, giving it a vacation and private resort vibe. The dancing flames are a unique and festive yet soothing element that works well for entertaining or relaxing. Keep reading to learn more about the benefits of tiki torches and how to incorporate them into your backyard.
Tiki Torches Bring a Unique Element to Your Landscape Lighting DESIGN
Besides adding a resort-like ambiance to your backyard, these commercial-grade tiki torches have a dual purpose. A LED light shines down from the base of the cone and, once lit, provides a dancing fame atop the fixture. The small citronella reservoir safely keeps the flame burning for several hours. Who doesn’t want another way to help keep bugs and mosquitoes away with all of the moisture this summer?
The LED light from below the flame nicely illuminates taller vegetation - bushes, shrubs, or flower beds - that other fixtures might not reach. Tiki torches serve as tall, elegant path lights. Just take the caps off and light the flame for a little extra pizzazz. The fire and moving flame is also a wonderful entertainment element, especially around water.
These tiki torches are made from high-quality materials, solid copper and brass, which means they are durable and you can expect them to weather well. The LED bulbs will last approximately 50,000 hours.
Where to Install Tiki Torches in Your Backyard:
At McKay Lighting, we’ve been installing landscape lighting for over 25 years. Tiki torches are a cool, timeless design element that never seems to go out of style. They are easy to incorporate into most lighting designs and present well near water. We like installing tiki torches around pools and lakes, along retaining walls, or near outdoor entertaining or gathering areas.
If you are looking for a unique outdoor lighting element, tiki torches add a fun, vacation-like aspect to your backyard. The flames create an extra dimension of light for a unique and festive ambiance. And even when the flame is not burning, these fixtures provide a tremendous amount of light.
