Building a beautiful backyard involves engaging all the senses and harnessing all of the elements to create a harmonious atmosphere. Outdoor wall lights are one of many lighting options that cast a romantic glow within your outdoor space. With the vast stylistic choices available, it’s never been easier to find a wall light that perfectly matches your personal taste!
Between the classical carriage lanterns, industrial chic and modern minimalist designs, you can achieve a myriad of aesthetics with the trusty lantern wall light.
Glass box sconces
For a more structural aesthetic, glass box sconces have been a very popular choice for both outdoor and indoor wall lights. Clear glass offers the option to showcase decorative or vintage light globes, while frosted or pleated glass creates a soft glow.
Bunker outdoor lights
Some embrace the nautical theme, whilst others go in an industrial direction. If you’re trying to create an Art Deco vibe, explore the designs boasting polished metals and ribbed glass textures!
These outdoor wall lights are far more simple and modern in design; however, the pattern of light they throw can create a striking lineal structure to your backyard.
Always try to check how each light design throws light; some offer an obtuse angle, whilst others shine in a tighter, longer beam. When installing, place them far enough down the wall to get the most effect from both directions.
DIY strip lighting
If you’re more of a DIYer, a strip of LED lights can make an incredible statement on your walls! More commonly used along stairs, balustrades, garden beds or window eaves, you can also run this backyard lighting option along your walls; simply install the lighting underneath the capping to create a dramatic glow.
