Now is the perfect time to purchase some new outdoor lighting as these outdoor summer lighting trends do not seem to be going anywhere anytime soon. As commercial lighting professionals, we are constantly adapting to suit and meet the ever-changing lighting trends. The three biggest outdoor lighting trends emerging in 2022 include creating a DIY beer garden, designing a space for Alfresco dinner, and mixing and matching styles or lighting rather than just using one.

DIY Beer Garden

With more people spending more time at home, creating an atmospheric and fun atmosphere is becoming more critical than ever. Because access to pubs, restaurants and beer gardens has been more limited than usual over the past year, the trend of creating your beer garden or garden pub is growing. With our range of connectable lights creating a fun backyard beer garden is simple.

We suggest starting with our connectable festoon lighting. You can drape them along the fence or crisscross them over the garden; this will create a more traditional looking beer garden. For something a little different, why not try incorporating our connectable rope lighting into your beer garden. LED rope lights look good at a low-level below, the skirting’s or high on a wall to provide a soft, warm glow. You can use rope lights to dress decking or footpaths to brighten up a dull outdoor space. Thanks to lighting innovation, you can now find string lights in various shapes, sizes, and colours, perfect your personality and style. 

Alfresco Dinning

Outdoor dining is a must when the sun starts to shine. To create the perfect alfresco dining experience in your garden, there are a couple of simple things you can do to create a warm, cosy and inviting space. There is nothing more inviting than well-thought-out garden lighting to illuminate your area instantaneously. We offer a range of lighting solutions to suit all budgets and preferences.

Adding your personality to your alfresco dining set-up is a must. Whether you are into modern looks or shabby chic everything, remember that adding your favourite pieces into your design scheme will make all the difference. We suggest using connectable curtain lights to segment the garden and create your own private and secluded section.

Mixing & Matching

Go bigger! Go brighter! A major outdoor summer lighting trend is mixing and matching styles and colours of lighting, rather than just using one colour and one style. You could go all out and create a rainbow theme garden, showing your support for the NHS and other key workers. With the connectable lights system, you can seamlessly transition from any lighting style, changing from icicle to festoon with ease, not having multiple Leads or transmitters. Mix and match your favourite styles. This system allows each product to be easily connected to any other same voltage item equipped with an IP67 quick attach connector.
