Whether you’re looking for something that’ll light the night or a reading nook, we have string light ideas you’ll love. Here are some of the best string lights on the market to brighten up your space in a fun, creative way.
Can’t you picture things hanging behind a sheer curtain? The bottles diffuse the light a little, but the sheer curtain would really make these indoor string lights look fantastic. They only come in a set of 10 and need three AA batteries, but they’d look great in any bedroom or reading nook. The biggest benefit is that the lights are connected to a USB battery box so you can put them literally anywhere — no more worrying about an outlet.
These indoor string lights are on a wire, which allows you to shape it how you want. My first thought? Glass dome. String lights in a glass dome is a great look, but you can mix it up with your favorite wine bottle, terrarium, or another glass container. These lights use a remote to allow you to control the brightness as well as activate fade or strobe.
When I see these lights, I picture them above a tapestry that shows off your personality, like this gold Mandala wall art. You could also put these globe lights on the wall and use laundry pins to hold photos or postcards in place. These indoor string lights also use a battery box that uses three AA batteries, so you can hang them wherever.
Do you want lights that cascade down your curtains? I gotchu. These string lights would look beautiful hung downward behind a sheer curtain. These lights have eight different settings including waves, sequential, slogs, flash, slow fade, twinkle, and more. The only downside is that you do have to plug these into an outlet. It’s a bummer, but the light cord is over 8-foot so it shouldn’t be that much of an issue.
When I saw these, I immediately added them to my cart. The roses are so detailed that they almost look real, save for the warm light that’s at the base of the flower. I saw these hanging on a mirror or around picture frames. The best feature is that they automatically turn off. The cycling time is 6 hours on and 18 hours on.
Going for a sea or beach theme? These are the string lights you’re looking for. This brand has several lights, but these sea glass lights look absolutely beautiful. I picture these lights against a blue wall or tapestry with a little bit of netting. It would look great in a living room or even near the front door. These lights are battery operated and are designed to stop and start based on a timer.
At first, I just liked the little globes, but once I saw these lights on, I needed them. I can see them in front of a mandala tapestry or hanging from curtains. You could even drape them over an entertainment center or the door to your room. They’re battery operated and use three AA batteries to work, which allows you to hang them anywhere.
Lights you can manipulate up banisters are the best kind of lights. These look like twigs from a tree and would look great in a ton of different locations. Picture them twisted up a bookcase or around a mirror. The only bad thing about these lights is that they do require an outlet, but you get plenty of cord to work with.
