Fun And Affordable Patio String Lights
Decorating your backyard does not have to cost you a significant amount of money as there are plenty other alternatives available for you to liven things up. One of these is the outdoor patio string lights which can be purchased at an affordable price and are rather simple to set up. Most of patio string lights have the same basic design but it is in the coverings that they differ. The most well known model that dotted patios since the nineteen fifties is the type that has a plastic cylinder cover that comes in different colors. There are usually around eight to ten lights per string on most models. Patio string lights are covered in an array of shades that can be really festive. Some are covered with shades that look like animals. There are some that resemble cats, dogs, frogs and a host of other outdoorsy animals. There are some that are strictly whimsy with chili pepper shades. They are a great way to dress up the patio and to extend outdoor living way past sundown. Some of these models are very simple clear or white lights dangling from the cord. Some of these types of lights are meant to mimic the sparkle of stars. There really is no limit to the styles.
Patio string lights can be purchased anywhere outdoor furniture is sold. They can also be found in catalogs, online venues and discount warehouse stores. Another good source is the local home improvement store. They are widely available and usually last at least two seasons with normal use. The light bulbs are easily accessed to change.
