Summer Nights Stay Fun

Though summer officially starts in June, many see Memorial Day as the beginning of the summer season. Cook–outs, fireworks, and swimming make us all feel like kids again. An added outdoor entertainment space can keep that feeling going into the night.

As you plan your outdoor space, consider these three things:


  • What do I love?
  • What area do I use the most?
  • What area would I like to use more?


Answering these three questions will help you decide which outdoor spaces to add or how to upgrade the ones you have. Here are just a few things to consider adding to your outdoor space or including in your design:

Shed Some Light On Your Yard

2 bulbs onLighting is a major design tool for outdoor spaces. You want your guests to be able to see where they’re going and who they are talking too. Here are a few tips for lighting your outdoor spaces:

  • Light Pathways First. Night time is the right time for trips and falls, keep paths, exits and entrances well lit for safety. The lighting can be soft as long as it is directed toward the ground.
  • Light the spaces you Love. If you have a beautiful patio, light it up. Add lights that enhance the area and allow people to see what they are doing.
  • Keep it Soft- Soft and gentle lighting can still be bright. Aim lights away from faces so no one has a light shining in their eyes. Keep the color and brightness diffused so the light doesn’t glare, but is enjoyable.
