When choosing lighting for a gazebo, the same water resistant and UL approval for wet/damp locations is still important. Though the roof line of a gazebo provides some protection, a light still must be rated for outdoor use in order to be safe. All of the outdoor chandeliers are perfect to meet these needs. At times gazebos do not have any electric wiring and the homeowner does not want to take the time and expense to extend electricity to it. In these cases a solar light is a good choice.
This Paradise Cast Aluminum Solar Gazebo Chandelier offers a nice solution. Offered in brown with frosted glass, this outdoor chandelier has three LEDs per shade to illuminate the area. Weighing only 8 pounds and with no wiring required, installation is not difficult. This outdoor fixture lights up automatically as the sun recedes each evening. Another plus to this light is the cast aluminum. Aluminum will not rust.
Amazon does ship this exterior light separately to prevent any breakage or damage.
When hanging a light like this be sure that if the wind begins to blow hard that it will not swing sideways and collide with other parts of the gazebo. For larger gazebos, two might be even more appropriate. Solar lights do dim throughout the night as the stored solar energy escapes. But considering most gazebo and decks are used in the early evening and shortly after the sun sets, the solar should provide enough light until the homeowners and guests are ready to return inside the home.
Other selections of gazebo lights can also be useful for these special buildings.
Another great way to put a gazebo to decorative work during the winter months is to place outdoor Christmas decorations around it, string outdoor tree lights from the edges, and even place a reindeer on the roof.
