Transform your Garden with Outdoor Lighting: Ideas to Suit Any Budget
Transforming your garden can be accomplished with relative ease thanks to the myriad of outdoor lighting options that are available. Recreating that great feeling of arriving at a stylish hotel every time you pull onto your own driveway doesn’t need to be a difficult, or overly expensive, project to undertake – you’ve just got to know where to look and who to call, both of which this post should assist you with!
At Keith Gunn Electrical Solutions, we have a long-standing track record of installing beautiful outdoor lighting schemes in gardens across the Central Belt of Scotland. Whether you want to increase your home’s security, or simply turn your garden into an inviting place to meet a friend after work (due to the current Government restrictions not allowing indoor multiple household gatherings), the Keith Gunn team can help turn your vision into reality.
There really is nothing more inviting than a well-lit outdoors in the evening, so we’ve put together a few ideas, to suit any budget, to get you inspired to start planning your own outdoor lighting scheme.
Garden step lighting
Outdoor step lighting not only looks ambient but is also incredibly practical as they help reduce the possibility of tripping and falling. With the right lighting, you can turn potential hazard areas into highlights of your night time landscape and also give any guests or passersby a beautiful first impression of your home.
The sleek step lighting shown above was installed in Morningside by our skilled supervisor, Peter. It may be a notably simple, minimalist light design but its helpful impact makes this type of outdoor lighting utterly invaluable to any homeowner.
Ambient garden lighting
Turn your outdoor space into somewhere you enjoy spending time with the right kind of ambient or accent lighting. As you think about what kind of outdoor lighting you might like to implement, consider all of the features in your garden worthy of attention. Do you have a beautiful tree in your front or back garden? You could spotlight it. Are there attractive architectural details on your patio? You could call attention to them with outdoor accent lights, like shown above. Did you work hard on a gorgeous garden with beautiful flower beds? Lead the way with some built-in path lights. There are so many options to choose from!
Furthermore, professional outdoor and landscape lighting can also add major value to the worth of your home. It can highlight design elements, make an area appear larger, add beauty, and increase usability to in-demand outdoor living spaces after dark. All of these things can contribute towards the curb appeal of your home, which will be of particular importance to any homeowner who might be looking to sell in the near future.
Luxurious outdoor accent lighting
If you’re wanting to go for something a little more luxurious, then we highly recommend browsing the beautiful premium range from Masiero, stocked by our sister company, the Luxury Lighting Boutique. With their design featuring glass fibre-filled nylon and their pendants made of polycarbonate or crystal, Masiero’s stunning outdoor chandelier collection is equipped with Drylight technology, which makes them windproof, shockproof, and resistant to all other atmospheric agents.
These beautifully crafted chandeliers will bring a swathe of instant luxuriousness to your outdoor premises, be an excellent optical feature, and an intriguing conversation piece for any of your house guests!
External security lighting
Allow yourself some peace of mind and a greater sense of safety by installing security lighting outside your home. Although we still advise having another method of security in place, such as an alarm system, the mere presence of lighting is enough to put off many would-be intruders. This type of lighting can also be set up to turn on every evening on a timer, meaning it’s not something you would need to remember to turn off and on every day. Not only do they keep you and your family safe, they look great too! Many outdoor wall lights are elegantly designed so that security is enhanced without compromising on style.
