Ah yes, the summer! It’s a time for getting outdoors, it’s a time for lighting up the barbecue, and it’s a time for enjoying some quality friends and family time. When the sun goes down why not make it even more special with some great outdoor lighting. The right lights have the ability to give a real wow factor to your outside area so with this in mind, just how can you make your area look spectacular? Here are 5 great ways that you can light the way this summer.
Bring a sense of the exotic to your outside space with a Tiki Torch. Standing approximately 2 metres tall they burn either standard lamp oil or citronella oil that repels insects. They have a long fibreglass wick so they can burn for a good length of time and are spectacular when used for lighting up pathways.
Gas Lamp Nostalgia
Bring a touch of gas lamp nostalgia to your outside space with a patio lantern. Again they run on either gas lamp or citronella oil and consist of 3 or 4 decorative lanterns that sit on a raised 2.5 metre pole. They create a warm, charming atmosphere that reflects a bygone age.
If you like your outside space to be tranquil and inviting, then why not invest in some solar powered Zen pathway lights. They give off a calming, soothing background light that goes perfectly with the gentle sound of running water from a garden fountain.
Do It With Techni-colour
If you love solar lighting, but love to be different, then why not embrace solar-powered coloured changing lights. Each light gently goes through a series of colour changes to reflect all the hues of the rainbow. They’re easy to install and each LED light lasts up to 30,000 hours. Just imagine ripples of coloured light falling on your planting and shrubbery. How amazing is that!
As well as functional outdoor lighting why not indulge in some fun decorative lighting. Decorative lighting can be placed at various points throughout your outside space and is designed to stand out. How about an intricately carved elephant that gives off a soft blue light or for that tropical feel, how about a wonderfully decorative pineapple in aluminium, copper, and brass that glows a soft shade of yellow. The choice is yours but decorative fun lighting really can put the finishing touches to your garden lighting.
Whether it’s innovative, quirky, retro or just plain fun, there are so many stunning types of outdoor lighting to choose from so lead the way this summer with some great outdoor lighting.
