The outside of your home can be neglected, particularly during the winter time, so we’ve come up with a few bright ideas about exterior lighting, and the ways it can lighten up your home in time for Christmas. Below are just some of the reasons you should consider investing in outdoor lighting for your home:
Light Up Your Life: One of the most obvious reasons people opt for industrial outdoor lighting is to provide a warm glow of cascading light to areas of your choice. Whether you have friends and family over for the evening, you want to provide a nice outdoor dining experience or you like to enjoy your evenings alone, curled up with a blanket, a book and a glass of your favourite vino. As a society, we are all guilty of spending too much time inside surrounded by technology, so creating an area where you can relax outside will do wonders for your health and wellbeing in 2018.
Décor Delight: When you opt for lights from Industville, you are not only investing in a practical feature but also a style statement that can emphasise or contribute to any existing design theme, both inside and outside the house. Our vintage outdoor lighting is perfect for both classic and contemporary schemes and will help to create a truly rustic setting that you can’t wait to show off. Exterior lighting will accentuate the architecture, colours and textures of your property for a home you can be proud of.
Safety First: Exterior lighting makes homes safer. Risk of falls and injury are kept to a minimum while moving around the outside area at night and it doesn’t take a criminal mastermind to realise that well-lit properties are not the best targets when it comes to being undetected.
In The Spotlight: Careful consideration to the type, style and placement of your outdoor lighting means you can highlight exactly what you want to accentuate, such as the brand new patio, and allows you to take the focus away from areas you’d rather stay hidden like the messy utilities shed. Our outdoor lights are also the perfect way to extend the ‘opening hours’ of your garden or patio, meaning the good times can continue to roll, well into the night!
Our wall-mounted lights are ideal options for illuminating the entrance of the home to provide your guests with a welcoming glow. They also sit [adjective] on a feature wall to highlight design or focused on a garden or patio feature. Below, you’ll find a few more tips to consider when thinking about where these fabulous outdoor lights can be fitted.
Bring the inside out. Our beautiful bulkhead lights can be used both inside and outside the home, so use them to add a homely feel to any outdoor area, making it feel more like an extension of the interior design.
Securing wall lights next to front doors and house numbers will make it much easier for guests who have never been to your home before, particularly during the winter time, when prime dinner guest arrival periods are in darkness!
Think about the direction of each light to ensure you are not exposing anything you’d rather not draw attention to or create a risk of too much glare. Make sure you experiment with different positions before you decide on a final placement. You can use a large torch in varying placements to see where it is likely to provide light.
For glow without glare, opt for downward facing wall-mounted lights that create a relaxing atmosphere that can be enjoyed by all.
