6 Outdoor Lighting Ideas and Designs

Make the most of the warm Summer evenings with 6 outdoor lighting ideas and designs to inspire!


Lanterns are a great versatile lighting option for your outdoor space as they can be easily moved and are available in a wide range of styles and sizes, and can be used with LED lights or candles. A great effect can be created by placing 3 lanterns in a small cluster on the ground in a covered outdoor area, or on a patio table. This will illuminate the area as well as creating a wonderful feature.

String Lighting

String lights are an inexpensive option and make a cosy and fun addition to your outdoor entertaining area.  String lighting can be effective when placed in the garden, through plants and trees, adding another dimension to your garden. Most people have grown up with string lighting especially at Christmas time, but they are a great option all year round.

LED Strip Lighting

LED strip outdoor lighting is great for making lighting effects in all weather conditions. These lights are low maintenance, long lasting, and very energy efficient.  LED strip lighting is available in a wide range of colours, so you can easily customise your space.  This type of lighting is often controlled with a remote giving you access to various light modes including strobe lighting effects and many different colour options. Perfect for giving your outdoor area a modern lighting makeover.

Up Lighting

Make a statement in your back garden by adding up lights, under plants, to light the path or to enhance a wall sculpture or architectural feature.  With a range of LED ground lights and rust resistant lights available, this type of lighting is the perfect addition to any high traffic area like stairs or walkways. Great examples are spike lights designed to be tucked away in your garden to provide a magical lighting experience.

Up lights come in a variety of colours, styles and designs, so check out the range and choose a style to match your outdoor space.

Pendant Lights

Any discussion about outdoor lighting ideas and designs would not be complete without including pendant lighting. Placing a pendant light over the outdoor dining table can enable you to carry your indoor design through to your outdoor entertainment area, giving your home a seamless feeling. Don’t forget to use these little gems on your balcony so you can be well lit while enjoying the cool evening breezes. With so many different design options available, from rustic to ultra-contemporary, you don’t have to compromise on elegance or style. Just remember to check the IP rating of your pendant light to ensure it is suitable for outdoor use.

Wall Lights

Turn your back garden into a magical kingdom with outdoor wall lights. Wall lights are available in a wide range of styles and designs to suit every taste. These fixtures are available with added features such as LEDs and motion sensors.

Wall lights are perfectly designed to create the perfect atmosphere, while still giving out enough light to illuminate the exterior of your home. By placing them on pillars or corners you can highlight the structure of your home and therefore reduce tripping hazards. By pairing the wall lights with a feature pendant light, you can create the perfect balanced ambience for entertaining.
