Beatihome Bright Ideas – Bring the inside out
Bringing the comfort of home to the outdoors

It has become increasingly common to turn a patio, balcony, or outdoor space into an additional home room with modern amenities and stylish furniture, regardless of the season. Today, it is not uncommon to see outdoor rugs, TVs, sofas, and pendant lights being used outside. Lighting manufacturers, members of the ALA, are making this transition easier by expanding their lines of decorative lighting and ceiling fans.

In recent years, the trend of decorating outdoor areas with traditional indoor lighting products has grown. It started with attention-grabbing landscape lighting and has since evolved to include wall lights and decorative fans. Many of the latest outdoor lighting product lines include a variety of fixtures.

While it is quite common to highlight entrances with wall lights and define spaces with step lights, today's homeowners are also hanging elegant pendant lights and colorful lanterns over outdoor tables. Spotlights can be seen above grills and cylinder lights under covered patios. With a little creativity and imagination, almost anything is possible. Additionally, there is an increasing demand for fixtures that mimic traditional indoor styles and pay attention to detail.
