It is all about lightning
How to choose your outdoor lights?
The right lighting can work wonders to bring something magical to an outdoor space. It sets the tone and creates a warm welcome, drawing you in on balmy summer nights.
As with interior fittings, it is essential that your outdoor lights match the style and atmosphere of your garden. On a practical level this may mean opting for wrought iron light fittings if your garden furniture is made of wrought iron. There are plenty of outdoor options to
choose from with many outdoor lights available in "families" with matching pedestals, poles and chains. Make sure that all your outdoor lights are fully waterproof, even if they are on a covered veranda.
If mere practicality is what you're after consider bulkhead lighting along an exterior wall, positioned 5 to 10 meters apart. Opt for the ones with eyelets with the top half covered as these allow the light to reflect onto the ground, which reduces the glare and creates a softer effect.
Outdoor lighting tends to be for both decorative and security purposes, while working to create a certain glowing ambience in the garden at night.
