How would these outdoor fixtures look dazzling up your summer house's lighting?
• Consider how both shadow and light can add style and detail to a space. If you have garden walls, for instance, consider placing your outdoor lighting at the base to highlight the wall’s texture, especially if it is rich in detail like stone or brick.
• Make sure that your garden lighting design bathes not only a tree’s canopy in light (which can create an eerie effect), but also the trunk.
• Use LEDs for your patio- and outdoor lighting. Modern LED-based lighting systems use about 70% less energy than halogen bulbs. This means you will not only be enjoying elegant garden lighting designs, but also a more appropriate electricity bill.
