Beautiful Bistros

Bistro lights are some of the most versatile and easily recognizable LED lights on the market which make them a perfect option for both those who are new and experienced with outdoor lighting. Exposing bistro lights, also known as the S14 LED bulb, is a great way to not only add some light and warmth to the area you are trying to illuminate but also to add some much desired ambiance, giving a rustic feeling even outdoors while you host company. Attaching your LED patio strings to positions above your target area that you are trying to highlight, allowing your bulbs to hang above, is the most effective way to utilize these lights. Another popular idea is to affix the bulbs themselves to exposed brick or wood to maximize not just the light that they give off, but the aesthetic that a bare bulb is able to bring as well.
