Garden Lighting 2021

Summer is almost here! If you’ve been getting your garden ready for BBQs and parties you’ll love our garden lighting guide. We’ll be walking you through the most popular solutions for summer 2021. 

We’ve got a variety of options using either mains or solar power. As always we’ll quickly explain some of the product terminology that’s commonly used in garden lighting.

CCT 

Colour changing technology allows you to alter the colour temperature of your lighting solutions to make sure you get the right mood for different settings. Often a fitting will come with a toggle or switch with colour temperatures ranging from Warm to Cool White. We find cool white fittings are most popular outside as they provide the brightest light. You can visualise the colour temperatures using the Kevlin Scale Below.

 

PIR

Passive infrared is the technology used to detect motion to turn your lights on or off. This allows you to leave your lights switched on and they’ll only provide light when motion is detected. Often fittings come with a PIR built in with a cap or lid you can close to prevent the PIR controlling the lighting, allowing you to use the switch.

Firstly Up and Down Lights

The most popular outdoor lighting solution, they’re a great low cost solution to illuminate the outside of your home. They’re also great on fences in an array. If they make use of a regular bulb you can also upgrade to colour changing Smart Bulbs to bring a festival or party feel to your garden. Heres a few examples…

Wall Lights...

A great way to provide dynamic lighting anywhere around your house or garden. These are great for above or next to doors to illuminate walkways. The Door Sign light with included letters and numbers is great for helping guests and delivery drivers find your house straight away!

Classic Lanterns

Lanterns have always been a popular favourite. They prove a great decoration to welcome visitors to your home. As they take standard GLS lamps you could also upgrade to Smart bulbs to create routines for when you leave and return to your home. 

 

Solar

Solar lighting is also a great way to create an atmosphere in your garden, plus there’s no need for for any wiring.
