Patio String Lights – Cheap And Easy To Get Lighting Intended For The Outside Of Your House

September 24th, 2011

Porch string lights are a vintage favorite, and they closely resemble the Christmas type. They make the perfect addition to any summer party.

Types

Majority of these string lighting have the same basic design but it is in the coverings that they differ. Probably the most common model that dotted patios since the nineteen fifties is the kind that has a plastic tube cover that comes in different colors. Most models have around 8 to 10 light bulbs per string. These lights are covered in an array of shades that can be really celebratory. Some are covered with tints that look like domestic pets. Some appear to be cats, fish, frogs in addition to a host of other outdoorsy wildlife. There are some that are strictly whimsy with chili pepper tints. They are a great way to dress up the veranda so you can extend outdoor living way past sunset. A few of these models are very simple clear or white lights dangling from the cord. A variety of these types of lighting is designed to mimic the sparkle of stars. The layouts of these lights are infinite. Almost all of these lights need an energy source to plug into. There are some solar models but they are not that widely available as of yet. The sting on these types can be a bit unattractive but as of yet an improved option has yet to be available.

Costs

This is certainly an extremely inexpensive lighting effects option with some patio string lights costing as little as under ten dollars. Most of these light sets do not cost more than 20 dollars to acquire a very elaborate well decorated model.

Purchasing

These types of lights can be bought wherever garden furniture is sold. They are also found in catalogs, online venues and discount depot stores. Another good source is the local home improvement store. They are widely available and typically last at least two seasons with customary use. The lights are able to be accessed to change.

Some Concerns

These are primarily electrical lights and they will get hot therefore do not expose these to water or wet surfaces. There exists the possibility for spark because most of the tints which are made are made up of plastic, if the light comes too closely in touch with the other lights there is certainly the potential for a fire. This type of light should be checked periodically for fraying of the electrical wire as well as for other risks.

Patio String Light Lighting is quite lovely. Patio string lights are similar to Christmas lights.
