Valentine's Day lighting ideas

Whether you’re planning on going all out to impress that special someone this Valentine’s Day, or intend on keeping things low-key, getting the lighting right is essential for creating the perfect mood. To give you a helping hand, we've outlined below five simple lighting ideas for achieving the perfect Valentine’s lighting.

LED candles

Nothing says romance quite like the intimate ambience of a candle’s flickering flame. Better still, you can make the most of the moment and avoid any potential disasters caused by naked flames and dripping wax by opting for LED candles instead. Whatever your plans for Valentine’s day, candles add a touch of elegance to any room of the home, whether that be centre of the table at dinner, set around the bath, or next to the bed.

String and fairy lights

String and fairy lights are a fantastic way to create soft layers of dreamy lighting in any room. Whether your preference is for simple and delicate micro wire LEDs, coloured bulbs or cosy white festoons these types of lights provide a comforting feeling wherever they’re positioned.

Smart lighting

If you prefer to add intensity and drama to your evening, then coloured lighting is the way to really set the mood. From soft pink, to deep red, or a colour that you and partner both love, smart bulbs from the Philips Hue range, for example, can deliver up to 16 million colour choices to help you to set up for a romantic evening together.

Feature lamps

We adore the neon pink heart shape light or the Love LED rope light - both from Locomocean. These lights would make a great centerpiece for any Valentine’s Day meal, and would also make a great gift that can be enjoyed all year round.

With the ambient lighting sorted, all that’s left to organise for a truly spectacular Valentine’s Day date is the chocolates, flowers, dinner, and romantic films.
