You’ll find that these 12-volt systems can be installed by just about anyone. All you need to do is mount the light(s), connect them to the transformer, and then plug them in. You’ll find low voltage LED lights, but also brighter halogen bulbs on the market today to suit your particular needs. Plug and play systems are also available in wall lighting, deck lighting, string lighting and other styles.
With warmer weather comes time spent outside. But to spend time outside you need to be able to see what you’re doing. During the day, the sun provides all the light you need, but when the sun goes down, other sources of light are necessary. Here are 8 outdoor lighting ideas to help you create the perfect nighttime entertaining space.
Pretty in pastel! While mixing patterns and colours is a fun way to add depth, working in a similar colour is more calming and looks less busy. Our favourite colour scheme for the summer party season has to be pastels, especially Pantone’s Pink Icing and Petit Four. Think pom poms, paper lanterns and picnic blankets. The soft colours compliment each other with ease and the neutral creams balance out the delicate pinks and blues. Contrasting with the rich greenery, pastel colours really pop. They are perfectly paired with warm white garden lights to create an outdoor living room effect which is always sought after. A combination of lanterns and sparkly fairy lights on all levels are ideal for illuminating your festivities whether it’s a picnic or alfresco banquet!
Contemporary garden lighting is distinct from rustic and traditional lighting. It tends to be sleek and modern, although some styles do hark back to previous decades. You’ll find a number of different elements common with contemporary lighting. Stainless steel housings are very popular today, because they offer outstanding durability and weather resistance, while providing a clean, modern look. Bronze is also popular, as are aluminium and glass.
