Utilise Warm Lighting For Relaxed Ambience
It is important that you create a space within your patio that encapsulates a calm and peaceful atmosphere, allowing you to relax and unwind. Implementing bulbs that produce warm light will make the perfect tranquil environment on your patio.
Cool Lighting VS Warm Lighting
Cooler light is ideal for functional spaces such as kitchens, bathrooms and work areas, as this lighting temperature boosts focus. Warm lighting is used in harmonious spaces. As a part of natural human circadian rhythm, embracing warm light in the evenings promotes relaxation.
For your patio exteriors, embrace warm lighting with around 1000 to 3300K (Kelvin degrees) to showcase a tranquil, calming atmosphere within the patio.

A warm directional ambience benefits any patio as this effect casts a warm, welcoming glow over your outside exteriors.
Outdoor Wall Lighting to Zone and Illuminate Patio Areas
Wall lights for your exteriors are efficient and can be used to zone areas within your patio. Wall lights can be incorporated next to welcoming entrances, outdoor seating, garden areas and under pergolas.

Symmetrical Wall Lighting to Enhance The Patio Space
Embrace wall lighting on either side of a fireplace, patio doors or outdoor bar areas to create an elegant and sophisticated atmosphere. The symmetry of the wall lighting is a perfect element that completes the overall look of your patio exteriors and is kind to the eye.
Our range of outdoor wall lights are designed to complement a wide range of exterior styles allowing you to choose the perfect match unique to your patio.
Elevate Your Pergola with Hanging Pendant Lighting
Pergolas are a sensational addition increasing the usability of your patio in various states of seasonal weather. However, the space under your pergola will become darker and uninviting in the evenings.
Eliminate the dark space by hanging pendant lighting under your pergola. Pendant lighting will increase the area's usability, add style to your pergola and produce an inviting space for you to entertain guests.
Define Outdoor Patio Dining Room Spaces with Oversized Lighting
You can create a practical dining experience on your patio with oversized lighting. Placing an oversized light in the centre of a table will create a fantastic spotlight and define the feeling of a dining space.
This space on your patio will empower you to entertain guests and tailor the right mood and atmosphere to suit your patio.
Incorporation of Small Outdoor Lighting on The Patio For Optimal Practicality
If your patio exteriors contain steps or hard-to-reach areas, thinking about practical light options that illuminate your patio sufficiently and safely is essential.
Incorporate small garden and outdoor lighting into practical areas such as steps and walkways. These styles of lights will perfectly illuminate these areas during the evenings and will not overpower the overall aesthetic and feel of the patio.

Choose areas of your patio you believe need brightening. It is important to consider which light sources you will utilise and multiply. This might include small garden and outdoor lights to guide practical elements such as steps, walkways, or statement pendants in dining and social spaces.
