Upgrade your patio space with sparkling string lights | Home & Garden

Fairy lights are thinly wired strands of tiny light bulbs that add a sense of magic to your patio and can be draped over bushes, trees or fence lines.

Lantern lights are globe lights that are designed to be covered with a thin paper or canvas lantern to add some softness and style.

Energy-saving features‌

LED bulbs use less electricity than incandescent bulbs, which both saves you money and lowers your carbon footprint.

Solar-powered lights can function solely by the light of the sun, meaning they don’t require a plug and won’t add money to your electricity bill. These lights come with an included solar panel to charge during the day.

Wire length‌

Outdoor string lights come in lengths from 10-100 feet and many sizes in between. Choose string lights that are long enough to accommodate your space. A small patio should need no more than 20-50 feet. But if you’re lighting a large patio or draping lights along a long fence, you might want to look for lights with at least 50-100-foot strands.


Patio string lights come in all sorts of colors, from the more classic white or soft yellow bulbs to red, blue or rainbow. A clear bulb gives off bright light, while an opaque bulb will add more of a gentle glow. You might also choose a set with color-changing bulbs, dim settings and customizable programs.
