Top 5 Outdoor Lighting Trends

1. Vintage chic lighting gives
traditional looks a modern twist

A soft and livable aesthetic defines the vintage outdoor lighting trend, which celebrates the utilitarianism of the early industrial era and marries it with modern chic comfort. This is a timeless and neutral look, focusing on simple shapes and raw materials. Whether or not this style dominates your home, even adding one statement piece of vintage wall lighting can add unique character to any outdoor space.

elegance and rugged cool

Clean, functional design is combined with sleek metals to create this sharp look inspired by contemporary industrial shapes and textures. Modern industrial-inspired lighting fixtures can make any space feel like a loft or warehouse with urban edge and sophistication.

3. Minimal or linear lighting defines
and refines with crisp contours

Simple and clean geometric shapes define this understated yet suave aesthetic. The look is subtle and straightforward enough to be timeless, but it also conveys a sense of futurism. Minimal or linear wall lighting and pendant lighting are easy ways to add a touch of cosmopolitanism to any outdoor space without diluting the dominant aesthetic already present.

4. Nautical lighting adds a splash
of bold, eye-catching detail

Ahoy! The breezy marine trend, with its exposed cages and Victorian-era hanging lanterns, is equally stylish on dry land. Picture a lighthouse in the foggy night, and you'll get a sense of the atmosphere this kind of lighting can create. Romantic yet robust, nautical-themed lighting will always light your path home.

5. LED lighting saves energy
without sacrificing style

What is LED lighting? LED, or "light emitting diode" lighting, varies in output and colour, making it a diverse choice for a range of settings and design styles. More energy-efficient than halogen/tungsten sources, LED outdoor lighting needs very little power to operate. LED lighting comes in a variety of designs and fixture styles, so you can be sure to match your outdoor decor with an energy-efficient source.

Now that you've seen the light, the rest is up to you! Get ready to glow
with pride over stylish outdoor fixtures that will brighten your landscape.
