2021 is already halfway over and summer is in full swing. During these warm summer months, we are all spending more time outside on the patio. Whether it’s al fresco dining with the family, a small soirée, or a large gathering, entertaining guests often involves spending time outdoors. When you think of revamping your outdoor space, have you ever thought of the difference a refresh of your outdoor lighting can make? Here are our top picks for outdoor refreshes to make your home summer-ready.
Cooling off Your Outdoor Space
In the heat of the summer, cooling off is the number one priority. Outdoor ceiling fans are meant to withstand weather changes and dampness, making them the perfect option for style and function.
The Windmolen LED 65″ Smart Ceiling Fan by Minka-Aire is a stunning 12-blade LED ceiling fan that offers a twist on traditional style, while Monte Carlo’s Aspen 56″ Ceiling Fan offers a sleek, minimalistic design that blends into any modern environment.
When choosing an outdoor fan, some things to consider include the size of your space, the wetness or dampness rating of the fan, the style you are looking to achieve, and whether you need lighting included. PDI carries a variety of outdoor fans in every design style that make it easy to find the right choice.
Statement Lighting for the Patio
The patio is the perfect setting for al fresco dining, and lighting can be a great detail and centerpiece for both design and conversation.
The Capsule Three Light Capsule Pendant by Crystorama features matte black and textured gold to add an industrial touch to smaller spaces like a front entrance or a more intimate outdoor setting. Kichler’s Wright Three Light Outdoor Linear Chandelier makes a statement for a larger area.
Outdoor lighting is meant to inspire your outdoor settings as well as provide functionality. Our dedicated experts can help you find the lighting that best fits your needs and considerations.
Two common spaces for wall lighting are the front and back entrance. Wall lighting is practical; however, practicality doesn’t mean you must compromise on style.
The Port Royal One Light Wall Lantern by Progress Lighting draws on industrial and artisan influences while being durable and functional. Troy Lighting’s Beckham Four Light Wall Lantern offers a contemporary twist for the modern home with a cast iron frame and squared features.
Wall lighting is a subtle approach to refreshing your outdoor areas and proves that small changes make a big difference.
