How to Create an Outdoor Living RoomMay 19, 2016
When we first moved into our single family home last year, one of the things we were most excited about was having a big backyard! This year, we decided to really get more use out of our outdoor space by creating an outdoor living room. And trust me, it was such an easy process that really boosts our ability to enjoy time outdoors all day long! I can’t wait to show you how I transformed my yard and share the details of the products that made this process easier, including the Enbrighten Café Lights by Jasco.
Here is the space we started out with.
It’s pretty bare, right? This was the location where the previous homeowners had left a wooden swing set. The swing set was old and the wood was rotting, so we removed it. We replaced it with a metal swing set that we put on the other side of the yard. But details about that is for another post on another day. Now, back to our outdoor living room! I knew we needed to create some shelter, so we would be able to enjoy the space even if it’s raining. So we put up a gazebo!
I love that the gazebo protects us from the sun & rain! To define the space a bit more, we added an Indoor/Outdoor Rug.
I think this space is really starting to feel defined now. Next, we needed somewhere to sit, of course. So I added some patio furniture: a love seat, two chairs and a table.
A few extra throw pillows makes this outdoor living room much more comfortable. Now, this is definitely looking more like a living room to me! What do you think?
However, no living room is complete without some great lighting! And when it comes to smart outdoor lighting solutions, nothing compares to the beauty and convenience of Enbrighten Café Lights by Jasco.
I really love how the Enbrighten Café Lights by Jasco uses LED bulbs, which reduces energy usage by over 95%! I’m always looking for ways to save money and this provides an effortless way to use less electricity!
The bulbs are beautiful and clear! The 36 foot strand comes with 18 bulbs so there is plenty of light produced! And I really love that these acrylic bulbs are so durable- they won’t break even if dropped! That’s super convenient, especially when you have little “helpers” (like I do) always trying to lend a hand during home projects! If you’re looking for a different size, you’ll be happy to know they offer strands in various lengths.
And when lit, they really do add a magical touch! These bulbs produce a warm white light – 2700K. Oh, and the best part? You never have to replace the bulbs- ever! The bulbs are backed by a limited-lifetime LED warranty.
So we draped these bulbs along the curtain rod all around the gazebo. This strand comes with flexible mounting options, as each bulb is attached to a little mount that you can place on a screw.
The Enbrighten Cafe Lights really makes this outdoor living space feel complete! One 36 foot strand was enough for our gazebo, but it’s good to know that these strands are linkable up to 350 feet! These lights would really add a special touch to any patio, gazebo, home accent, or camp site.
When sitting down inside, it feels like you’re inside a living room. And these lights do not need to be taken down at the end of the night! They’re weather-proof and commercial-grade, so they are perfect for year-round, permanent outdoor installations!
However, even though it’s beautiful during the day, it’s truly magical at night! There’s nothing like a string of these Enbrighten Cafe Lights to add a special ambience to a space – indoors or outdoors!
Look at how stunning this looks inside!
