No matter what the time of year may be, a well-lit pergola is always in season. Pergolas are a perfect outdoor living feature for lounging, dining, and entertaining, and vinyl ones from Mid-Atlantic Deck & Fence will last you for years to come. Pergolas are flexible to accommodate hanging planters, flowering and fruiting vines, or plastic covers to keep the rain out. This season, you can also light up the pergola and enjoy the outdoor space in a new way.
1. String Lights
String lights are perhaps what first comes to mind when considering how to light up the pergola. They are easy to find and come in a variety of styles. One can wrap strings of lights around individual beams or columns, line the perimeter of the roof, or create a web that overhangs the outdoor space. As an alternative to icicle lights, globe string lights can give a subtle, elegant effect.
2. Pendant Lights
Pendant lights are a stylish way to illuminate any outdoor space. They can come in many different forms. For example, one can choose from countless pendant light designs, like ones made from glass, paper, or fabric. Depending on the look you are going for, lanterns, mason jars, and candles within glass containers also make stunning light fixtures.
3. Solar Outdoor Lamps
Looking to save a bit on electricity and still keep stylish? Solar outdoor lamps can sit or stand in your space as needed. Besides lamps, solar lighting comes in a whole range of lighting options, from lamp posts to pendant lighting and more.
4. Curtain Lights
If you are looking to create a magical ambiance, curtain lights can do the trick. These are available at many convenience stores and can give you as much or as little lighting as you would like. If you prefer, one wall of many lights can act as your light source as well as a privacy wall.
5. Coach Lights
Coach lights are like sconces in the form of a lamp post box. One on each column of the pergola can suffice for both a classy and modern vibe.
If you want to go all-out on fanciness for your pergola, whether your style is rustic, modern, or anything in between, a chandelier can give the illumination and impression you want. No matter what way you light up the pergola, it can fit whatever style you choose.
