Whether it’s for the purpose of entertaining guests at night time, evening aesthetics, security or simply to see where you are walking, adding light outdoors brings your garden and your home to life. We have compiled just the inspiration you need to light up your life, and even better- to light up the night!
Party lights mean its’ party time!
The trend of suspending a string of party lights has been around for many years, and there is a reason; it looks amazing! As per the Jarvis Electrical website, recently there has been a shift to using clear bulbs rather than a spectrum of retro colours. These festive beauties look best draped over trees, zigzagged overhead under verandahs or patios or placed in the middle of a long table as a focal point during a special occasion.
Sensors are SENsational
There is nothing scary or in fact more dangerous than arriving home to a completely pitch black home in the dead of night. You can easily avoid all of this by installing exterior lights on motion sensors. Place them on your driveway, front entrance, garage or literally anywhere you see fit to install them. Motion sensors and lights on automatic timers are perfect to assist in scaring away unwelcome visitors too. Client, a Brisbane electrician can help install the motion sensors, and your home will feel like a disco in time!
Front Door Magic
A light by the front door makes getting the key in the lock easy and breezy! For the contemporary homes, shop for a clean-lined model to suit your home. For a more traditional look, go for an exterior quality light fitting that suits the classic elements of our home.
Make the journey to your garden a memorable and well-lit one with lanterns dotted every half metre along the way. Shop for solar-powered models in traditional shapes that can be hooked over metal stakes, just to give it that extra cute factor!
Suspend glass jars with wire handles from tree branches in your backyard. To make it even more romantic: fill each jar with a smidge of water and place a wax float candle on top. This is the recipe to a romantic evening under the stars!
For cottage gardens and authentic themes, look for class shaped lighting options. Aim for models that are solar powered and don’t require batteries or cords, and try placing them alongside pathways or pushing them between your plantings. This will add evening ambience out in your yard.
