When planning for outdoor lighting, finish durability and product functionality are equally as important as design. Kichler’s outdoor solutions are engineered specifically for wet and damp locations. If you live on the coast with consistent salt spray, in the arid, sun drenched southwest or in the wide temperature and weather variances experienced in the northern states, long-lasting and durable finishes are vital. Select Kichler collections feature the Climates material to withstand the harsh elements – salt air, intense heat and cold or constant ultraviolet (UV) exposure.

But the story doesn’t end there. You now can set the stage with light and music. Kichler’s Portable LED Lanterns with built-in Bluetooth® Speaker provide ample light for evening entertaining and are dimmable for a soft effect or warm glow. Perfect poolside, with the grill master or next to your conversation set, the intuitive Portable Lantern connects to any Bluetooth device, putting volume and song selection at your fingertips. Once paired, all you have to do is sit back and enjoy. Five styles are available, including Berryhill, Montego, Davis, Lyndon and South Hope.

With more than 20 damp-rated options, adding an outdoor-rated ceiling fan is another great addition for screened-in or covered porches during those hot summer nights. For a fixture that works smarter and is perfect for entertaining, Kichler’s Bluetooth Audio LED Light Kit broadcasts music from any Bluetooth enabled device – all through your ceiling fan light kit. The kit features an LED light with 1,600 Lumens/ 3000 CCT and is available in a variety of finishes. Better yet, add one inside as it can pair with a second unit, making your outdoor space an extension of your indoors.

Finally, consider welcoming your guests with well-lit pathways, decks and illuminated landscapes. Not only will you provide safety for navigating the outdoors in the evening, but these enhance the beauty of your home and help to bring all of your outdoor spaces together.

Bringing life and ambiance to outdoor spaces with the right lighting creates an outdoor oasis and more time to enjoy the season long after the sun goes down. For more information on how Kichler can help you transform your outdoor setting and to locate your nearest distributor, please visit
