Pool & Backyard Lighting Trends – Discovering Exciting New Options



Pool and Backyard Lighting CoraopolisOne of the biggest joys of summer is being able to spend more time in the great outdoors, namely your own Coraopolis backyard. Take a seat and enjoy the sunset, host a party, splash around in the pool. Yet, as the sun sets, it is a reminder that you are still lacking in lighting – but all that is about to change.

While it may be time to close the pool for this season, that still makes it the perfect time to start thinking about making changes before the next spring arrives. This is the ideal time of year to hand over your outdoor space to the electrical professionals who can work on it, now that it is no longer being used on a daily basis. In other words, start getting motivated by lighting trends for your pool and outdoor living space, so they can be implemented before warm weather returns.

Bringing Things to Light

Now your pool really can make a splash and your backyard can set the mood, it all boils down to the type of lighting you have. These are some lighting trends to consider, but merely an example because there are plenty more where that came from:

Floating Lights – Like lotus flowers on the surface of a pond, imagine soft but functional lights that float in your pool. Many homeowners are excited about this because of the ambiance it creates. You will enjoy a luxurious setting and can add as many lights as you want, in whatever style or colors you desire.

Using LED – LED may not be anything new, but it’s the steady popularity that has made it a style of lighting that gets implemented into every possible setting. So, it only makes sense that it finally made the transition to pool lighting, and will likely remain a commonly used staple.

Fads come and go, but trends usually are what stick around to stay and become the new norm. LED lighting for the pool is a favorite due to available color variations, their ability to offer soft yet efficient lighting, and their energy-efficiency.

Overhead Lighting – As outdoor living spaces became such a phenomenon, designers started seeking other ways to incorporate other traditional interior design elements into the outdoors. While overhead lights are common inside the home, they have now finally made their way outside. Its akin to sitting in your backyard with the illumination of the sun overhead, without the bright, harsh glare.
