Outdoor Lighting Trends to Brighten Any Yard

Just a few years ago, the business of outdoor lighting was a relatively bland one. With mostly white options, there wasn’t a lot of creativity involved with brightening your outdoor areas. In recent years, however, this has completely changed. With products full of innovation and color, outdoor lighting is trending in a more exciting direction. These are some of the biggest trends to look for.

Twinkle and String Lights

It seems like the whole world is suddenly covered in twinkle lights. Giving off a soft ambiance with ample light to see by, these tiny bulbs give an intensely atmospheric look to any area. With thousands of colors and sizes to choose from, twinkle lights can create a warm and sultry mood or suggest more of a sparkly winter wonderland. As an added bonus, lighting such as twinkle lights has been proven to boost mood and combat Seasonal Affective Disorder in the dark winter months.


Both stringed and single lanterns give off a similarly moody lighting to that of string lights, but with a bit more intrigue on the light itself. Lanterns come in thousands of shapes and colors and are a great way to add a bit of an accent decoration as well as lighting.

Eco-Friendly Lighting

Many types of lighting are now being produced in solar-powered options, which are great for a myriad of reasons. These lights not only save on electricity and require no extra energy to light, but they also provide the ability to create light away from an electrical outlet without the use of expensive batteries or extension cords, which can be an eyesore.

No matter the size, shape, or style of a yard, lighting features enhance the space and display the outdoor space you worked so hard to create. Even in the winter months, lighting can be used to create a pleasing back or front yard scene. Call the experts at Carol’s Colors and create your ideal outdoor space today.
