LED patio lights are a relatively new choice in outdoor lighting but there is a reason for the surge in popularity. The versatility afforded with strings of LED lights put them light years (pun intended) above the competition. Not only can these ropy lights be hung like traditional outdoor string lights along houses, between poles, or wrapped around bushes and trees but they can also be used to highlight steps and the edges of decks. Rope LED lights can be stepped on, twisted, and easily packed and unpacked. No more worrying about untangling the infernal string of traditional lights, just unroll the LED lights and get started.
LED patio lights, or rope lights, come in a wide range of colors and lengths, and can be used to light virtually any setting. Wound around a tree or umbrella stand, hung between poles or even coiled and looped and suspended under a glass table, the possibilities are endless.
Some LED lights are even battery powered so you don’t have to worry about accessing a power source when choosing where to display your rope light. This gives you even more options including lighting your serving platters or even yourself!
LED patio lights are not only versatile and fun but cost-effective. No longer do you have to worry about stepping on a string of lights and crushing a tiny bulb or trying to untangle a knot of wire and breaking off fourteen bulbs. LED lights last longer and are durable on their own; add in the rubber tubing typically covering LED rope lights and they are almost indestructible. LED rope lights are not more expensive than typical strings of lights and in some cases might even cost less.
If you are still unsure about trying rope lighting for your next outdoor party, just cast your mind back to last Christmas. Relive the frustration of opening the box of outdoor Christmas lights and surveying the unholy mess of tangled wires and bulbs. Relive the indescribable feeling of attempting to untangle the chaos while knowing deep in your heart that you will eventually throw the entire box away and start again. Then head to your nearest store and purchase some LED rope lighting.
