Guests need to know where to go (and where not to go) to find the party, right? Landscape lighting is a great way to help define your outdoor spaces.
Accent lights can pep up interesting decor touches like water features or statues, but they can also help clarify the limits of your yard, especially when aimed up from the bottom of trees or fencing.

Use lighting to spotlight your outdoor seating areas so people know where to go once they find the party. There are a few different ways to do this.
- Outdoor ceiling lights, including ceiling-mounted lights, hanging lights and even outdoor chandeliers
- Outdoor floor lamps or table lamps (great for when you can’t hard-wire fixtures)
- Outdoor wall lights

If it’s too hot outside, your guests won’t want to stay. The easiest way to combat the heat is with an outdoor ceiling fan.
You can find outdoor fans to suit any design style, fans for covered spaces, fans for exposed spaces and fans with a light kit.
Kichler also makes a line of ceiling fan light kits with Bluetooth audio speakers! Choose from 4 finish options to match the fan, then show off your dance moves while staying cool.
Wall fans, including options that can be plugged in to an outlet (great for renters), are available too.
