Decorative Outdoor Lighting



When it comes to lighting your outdoor living space, there’s no better fixture for widespread ambient lighting than an outdoor chandelier. The right overhead lighting makes all of the difference when you are spending time with friends and family out on the patio and the conversation extends past sundown. If the style of your exterior dining area is rustic, a round nine-light chandelier might be just what you are looking for. For more modern lighting design, a three-light linear chandelier may better suit your needs.

Ceiling Fans

While you want to enjoy your outdoor living space as much as possible, sometimes the weather has other ideas. If the temperature outside is too warm for you to relax comfortably, installing an outdoor ceiling fan is an affordable way to cool your covered patio. Outdoor ceiling fans may look like their interior counterparts, but there are a couple of key differences. Features like all-weather blades, powder-coated finishes, and watertight motor casings allow them to operate efficiently and effectively without succumbing to moisture damage.

Hanging Lights

If you enjoy the ambient light that a chandelier provides, but prefer a different type of fixture, there are many types of hanging lights that can illuminate a space just as well as a chandelier. In addition to providing ambient light when grouped together, hanging lights can also provide lighting for you and your guests to feel safe and secure in exterior entryways. At M&M Lighting, we carry a wide assortment of exterior lights, and whether you’re looking for high-quality Hinkley fixtures or a stunning piece from Trans Globe Imports, we have the fixtures for you.

Wall Lights

When you’re enjoying your outdoor living area, there may be times when you prefer the type of illumination that wall lights provide as opposed to the bright ambient light of chandeliers and hanging lights. Whether they are mounted on the side of your home’s exterior or on structural pillars around your patio, exterior wall lights provide a soft glow that strikes the right balance between functional illumination and elegant mood lighting. Whether you’re visiting with friends or having a romantic dinner outdoors, all lights are an excellent way of subtly lighting the area.
