Amazing Ways to Illuminate your Pergola



Don’t let a dark or dimly lit pergola stop your outdoor summer fun once the sun goes down. During those long summer months, when company stays throughout the night, you need to make sure you have the best lighting to keep the party going. We’ve compiled a list of the top four best ways to illuminate your pergola to keep the party going well into the night.

Built in Lights
We understand that adding a pergola to your backyard is a big decision. Do it right from the start by having built in lights installed directly into your pergola. This ensures that you when it gets dark out, you won’t need to scramble to turn find lighting or retreat indoors. With a flick of a switch, you can host company all summer long, day or night, with ease! Four Seasons Sunrooms & Windows offers puck lighting for all our patio covers and covered pergolas.

String Lights
If you already have your pergola installed but overlooked installing lighting, don’t worry! String lights are so easy, whimsical, and budget-friendly. Commonly utilized during the winter holidays, string lights come in varying colors, wattage, flicker modes and sizes and are the perfect solution to lighting up a pergola. Simply hang around the top lattice of your pergola or around the structural columns for instant illumination. Adding these delicate set of lights to your pergola will allow you and your friends to enjoy it all day and all night and best of all, these lights can be purchased at your local Home Depot or Target, or online from Wayfair or Amazon.

Hanging Lights
From rustic hanging lanterns, to modern GE light bulbs, adding hanging lights to your pergola is the perfect way to light up your pergola when you are very particular on style, theme, and design. There is so many options that you can use, and every option can be uniquely you. Easy to create yourself, hanging lights can add as much or as little light to your space in any color you desire. Our favorite is reusing oldmason jars, strung together with LED fairy lights inside. These mason jar hanging lights add a contemporary feel to your pergola, all white reusing and re-purposing jars in a unique fashion. No matter which design or style you choose, we guarantee it will light up your pergola amazingly.

Up-Lighting
Looking for a futuristic look when utilizing light? Up-Lighting is a different way to add lighting to your pergola that your guests may not be used to seeing, making it a nightly conversation piece. The Up-Lighting technique is simple in theory; lights that are linked to the bottom of your pergola or patio, with a directional focus directly upwards to the dark night sky. Up-Lighting lights tend to be very natural and soft; they are bright enough to light the area, yet dim enough not to shine directly into the eyes of your guests. Up-Lights are a unique way to add some brightness to your backyard at night, and one of our favorite lighting techniques.
