Make the most of your garden this summer and create the perfect ambiance with the perfect lighting. Style asked the team at Lights4Fun to offer their tips and tricks to make the most of that Instagram-worthy golden hour.
Start from the bottom and work your way up! Adding an illumination at ground level makes your outdoor space feel bigger, thanks to the shadowing they create. Stake lights pushed into the soft ground light up a walkway; while for harder surfaces, such as patios and decking, you can use outdoor lanterns to create a cosy glow.
Firepits are a massive trend this summer; they’re a must for outdoor entertaining especially when the temperatures fall. For a smaller yet effective flame, try LED candles – they mimic a real flame, yet are completely fuss free and safe around the kids too.
OVER HEAD LIGHTING
Now your ground is lit and the flames are flickering there is only one thing left to do… illuminate over-head. Festoon lights can be draped from window to wall, adding instant style to all garden decors. Their oversized bulbs catch the eye of your guests and bring light and life to your space. Utilise all walls, fences and trees to bring your garden to life by entwining with fairy lights, adding a little sparkle wherever they go.
