Outdoor lights – let your garden, terrace or balcony shine
Outdoor lights are ideal for illuminating your garden, balcony or terrace. There are many durable and weather resistant outdoor lighting options that you may consider, as well as some less weather resistant but moodier types of lighting. You can choose between electric outdoor lights, solar lamps (those last 4 - 12 hours on average) and options such as torches, lanterns and candles.
What should I consider when choosing outdoor electric lamps?
- whether the outdoor space is sheltered or fully exposed to rain, snow, etc. (if your lamp is going to be exposed look for an outdoor lamp with a high IP rating for protection against harsh weather
- use 40-watt bulbs for paths, gardens, and other low-level areas and stronger bulbs for driveways and larger areas
- remember that LED lights are the best choice for outdoor lighting – they are brighter and last longer
- the style of your home (for example, not all outdoor lamps are suitable for minimalistic architecture)
How to illuminate your balcony or terrace?
The best outdoor lighting for your balcony or terrace are solar lamps and decorative outdoor string lights. Garden garlands have bulbs in different shapes, sizes and colours and introduce a holiday mood that you will love. Solar lamps, like lanterns, are a great way to illuminate stairs or your outdoor table and if the wind is not too strong, you can also use traditional candles to enjoy the candle flame.
