Nothing compares to seeing the warm outline of your home softly illuminated by a gentle crown of light under the night sky. Outdoor lighting adds not only charm to your house but also a measure of security and safety. And while all lighting can be great, professionally designed lighting is transformative.
Why not bring both warmth and depth to your outdoor design, accentuate your landscape and entertain from dusk until dawn with Bondilights’ exterior wall lighting ideas? Read on for our rundown on all exterior wall lighting trends.
As a garden lighting specialist, we love LED strip lights as they are so versatile with limitless designs and applications. Want to really elevate the mood and tone of your outdoor space? You can do this with Bondilights’ LED strip lighting. Highlight the steps of your deck area and create an atmosphere with warm white or orange-red.
And highlight the railing surrounding your deck or back porch in the same colour to enhance that effect. Place strip lights around the awnings on your decking or balcony, and porch roof to create a magical theme.
Take the concept a step further and place LED strip lighting along steps, retaining walls, beneath window-sills and garden beds. The sleek, clean lines of strip lighting deliver stylish architectural structure while adding to the safety factor of your backyard.
Spotlights are great at highlighting architectural features and landscaping. Yet, they really gain notoriety in potential danger areas, such as at the poolside or around a split-level deck or patio. Try not to throw a lot of light in the one spot though as this will make other areas seem darker.
Instead, install some LED cube wall lights in the corners of the space you want to illuminate. For long rectangular gardens break up the long stretch by pointing the lights up to highlight trees, plants or decorative features. Point them down to give light to garden beds.
Designing the overall lighting plan for your landscape can seem overwhelming. There are so many different options and lights available. But if you chat to one of our professional lighting designers at Bondilights you will be on track to creating a beautiful lighting design for your gardens. Once you have hit upon the focus for your lighting, whether it be the textured brick wall or fountain, we will assist you with the best lights to use.
Fusion of lights
Do you have outdoor seating? Add ambient light to the space by installing lights to nearby outdoor walls. The LED up and down wall lights are perfect for providing a relaxing atmosphere with a soft low level light wash over the ground while also delivering enough glow for you to see the people around you.
Light up the door frame
Amplify your curb appeal by installing wall lights on either side of your front door. Bondlights’ LED wall lights will provide the perfect amount of energy-efficient lighting and create a gentle glow that gives you that front door ambiance. It couldn’t be more welcoming. If you prefer overhead lighting, fix a down wall light above the porch area.
Warm front porch lighting
For a trendier take on a porch light, consider installing a circular wall light near the front door. It will add style to your entrance while providing illumination for safety. Our lights are wet and damp rated fixtures for long-lasting weather resistance.
Do you have a statement piece such as a modern art sculpture? If so, fix a light with a sleek design to an exterior wall to give the piece that lasting impression while providing beautiful ambient lighting. The LED pivot light is an excellent choice for the job.
Light up the windows
Add symmetry and intrigue to your windows by installing wall lights between them. Illuminating architectural design with exterior wall lighting is the way to go when you want to increase curb appeal and the style of your home. Consider ways to add contrast. For example, opt for our designer outdoor circular wall lights to enhance large rectangular windows.
Secret garden lighting
Create your own secret mystifying garden and add a warm and relaxing glow by fixing outdoor wall lights around the perimeter of your backyard. Choose downlights to avoid nasty glare and illuminate the path for safety.
Light and fire
If your patio has a fire table, add to its warmth by installing wall lights nearby. Choose stylish fixtures that reflect the surrounding aesthetics and throw light downwards to light up walkways for safety. And if you have a barbecue, our outdoor barbeque lights are perfect for when you are cooking in the evening.
A modern exterior wall light will add a lot of intrigue to your entry and walkway. Our LED up and down light throws light downwards as well as down the wall for that wash effect. So not only does it illuminate for safety, but it delivers a nice decorative effect.
Lighting for gatherings
And lastly, exterior wall lights go hand in hand with trendy yet comfortable seating. Modern patio lighting will change the way you use your outdoor area and make a serious impression on your visitors. It will become your favourite lounging spot especially when you have guests over. But you might need to fight off the rest of your family for the space!
What to look for in a garden lighting design company
Installing outdoor garden lighting is not cheap, so you want to make sure you only do it once. When searching for a reputable outdoor lighting company to show your home off in the best possible light, there are certain things to look out for. For example, the company should be able to provide you a warranty on its lights.
This is a good sign the company is confident in the quality of its work, and it protects your investment should anything go wrong. Bondilights provides warranties of at least three years for electrics and ten years for the lights’ casings. We also go above and beyond to help our clients should anything go awry.
However, it is not only the products’ durability that reflects the quality of work. You also want to ensure the company has an exceptional design team.
Bondilights’ expert garden lighting designers are highly skilled as well as artistic and will achieve the desired effect of outstanding visual appeal the first time. Our specialised designers will work with you to transform your garden and backyard into your dream outdoor living space.
