As Aussies around the country prepare for that familiar sweltering Summer sun, it’s important to check in on the areas that were neglected while we were all in hibernation. Pool, how are you doing? Outdoor seating area, are you holding up ok? Garden, are you still alive?
With Summer just over the horizon, it’s time to give your outdoor area some tender loving care and check out Andrews 6 favorite outdoor lights that are bound to spark some life into the forgotten areas of your residence.
The HIGHGATE Outdoor Light
Overflowing with traditional British style, we have the Highgate. This beauty is available in a myriad of colors as well as UP or DOWN depending on buyer preference. Powder-coated aluminum with clear, beveled glass panels allows this versatile piece to weather any storm, making it the perfect candidate for any outdoor setting.
If you’re after a light to guide you home, never fear, the Highgate Sensor is here. A heavy-duty passive infrared motion sensor (PIR) will light up any nook and cranny as you arrive home from a night on the town. If you can get just 5 meters from the Highgate Sensor, its guiding light will help you back into the safety of your home.
The MONACO Bollard
Pathway lighting is a vital aspect of any outdoor area. If you don’t want your guests (or yourself) tripping over your garden gnomes, a bollard light post is the fitting for you. The Monaco bollard is a picture-perfect pathway light, designed to discreetly cast light downward to bring out colors and features of any walkway around the house. Downward casting light has the added benefit of reducing glare, with no harsh lights being thrown into anybody’s eyes! This rugged aluminum bollard has the added benefit of energy-saving LED technology. A perfect choice for managing your electricity bill over summer alongside your air-conditioning.
The GOYA Outdoor Light
Perfect for accent or task lighting, (read up on the difference here in our garden lighting blog!) the Goya is a retro-styled copper pathway light that will add a bit of pizzazz to any garden area. A benefit to copper is that it is greatly suited to any weather condition, so it will last a long time and develop a lovely natural patina. This stunner is a quick and easy DIY connection away from sparking some joy in your outdoor area.
