Consider Your Space
Consider the space that you have available - this should be the first step in deciding on the best patio lighting. Calculate the space you have available by multiplying the square footage of the area you want to light by 1.5. This will provide you with a rough estimate of the total wattage you need - as an example, 100 square feet of the patio will need 150 watts of light to get the best results.

Use A Range of Lighting Types 
Bring your patio space to life by including a wide range of types of patio lighting types. According to the experts, there are three types of lighting to include: ambient lighting, which is typically achieved through a wall sconce and hanging lights, task lighting - which includes security lighting and pathway lights, and accent lighting, which includes spotlights.

Using a Swirl Integrated Led Outdoor Wall Light can help create a relaxing, welcoming environment to your patio space.

Use LEDs 

Using LEDs is a great way to light your patio and save money, as these require less power - opt for an integrated LED light to allow you to enjoy a great atmosphere, without worrying about your lighting budget.

Alternatively, why not enjoy a modern twist on a classic design such as our Pillar Integrated Led Outdoor Light? This is the perfect choice to embrace the romantic element of times gone by while enjoying the clean lines and tech benefits that come with a more modern design - the ultimate accent to any patio space.

Patio Lighting Design

The best way to get the best results from your patio lighting is to plan ahead. Make sure you have a good understanding of your layout, the space you have available, and the look you want to achieve.

Consider what you will use your patio for - are you looking for a place to relax and unwind, or to entertain? Perhaps you have a large space and want to divide the area into sections for maximum use and flexibility.

Think about where your furniture is, and the vibe you want to create - for a cozy evening reading nook, you could use more mutes, and subtle lighting, while a party area by the table or fire pit may benefit from mood lighting to create a friendly vibe. If you have a pool, bright, security lighting can help to keep everyone safe.

By planning ahead, you can make the most of the space and ensure that you choose the right lighting for your outdoor oasis.
