A home with contemporary styling requires modern lighting solutions, both inside and outside the home. The family’s safety and security are the main reason that many customers tell us that they’re looking for an outdoor wall light, but an effective lighting solution shouldn’t be dull. Luckily, there are plenty of practical solutions in a range of modern styles that don’t compromise the aesthetics of the outside of your home.
Although safety is a priority for many – avoiding accidental slips and trips, particularly through the winter months is just one great reason – there is rarely a reason that a wall light needs to be illuminated continually through the night. Generally, customers need a light that switches on when a person approaches the entrance to the property, so they can see (and be seen) when they are finding keys and so on. For these instances, outdoor wall lights with Passive Infra-Red (PIR) motion detectors are perfect – when they detect motion, the light is triggered to be switched on for 45 seconds.
When it comes to the shape, style and materials of modern outdoor wall lights, there are a lot of options. Up and down lights are particularly popular to illuminate the house effectively, while modern outdoor wall lamps in boxy shapes with exposed bulbs are in demand too.
Choosing the right material for your outdoor wall light is an essential step, since you need it to be strong enough to withstand all weathers. With that in mind, metals, plastics, glass, and stone are great materials, and of course, all wall lights that are specified for outdoor use will be marked with IP44 rating, to show that they can withstand splashes of water, including rain.
Not only does our range include a wide variety of modern and contemporary styles of wall lights to suit all homes, but there are different colours too – including silver and chrome effects, sleek matte black, gold, and brass.
If you’re looking to improve visibility in your garden throughout the summer months, but the area to be illuminated doesn’t have easy access to mains electricity, our range also includes solar wall lights in modern styles. As solar powered lighting has improved dramatically over the past few years, whatever your requirements are for wall lighting, solar power is a practical choice for lighting outside the home.
Whether you’re choosing outdoor wall lights to enhance safety and security, or you are looking to increase the ambient light in the garden for the summer, months, you’re almost certain to find the type you’re looking for in our extensive range.
