If you’re interested in purchasing an outdoor light, we suggest taking a look at our LED downlights. With a wide range of key features and advantages, downlights provide crystal-clear visibility at nighttime and look incredibly smart alongside garden foliage and landscapes.
Why is Outdoor Lighting Beneficial?
We all want security in our homes. Finding ways to heighten your safety is key, and choosing the right exterior lighting is an easy way to start. We spend so much time and effort picking out the right lighting solutions for the interior of our homes, so why not do the same outside?
Having great outdoor lighting lets you and your guests see dangers and tripping hazards, which can often be missed when you can’t see properly. For obvious reasons, it's hard to see what’s around you when it begins to go dark, which is why having a bright illumination of light is so important.
At LED Supplier, we’ve been providing outdoor lighting solutions for residents based in the UK for many years, making us one of the best in the industry.
Apart from opening your garden space up and brightening your driveways or paths, LED downlights help scare off potential intruders and burglars.
Can LED Downlights be Installed Outdoors?
LED lights are durable and long-lasting, meaning they can be used in both indoor and outdoor environments. Made with integrated LED bulbs, downlights can be placed anywhere you like, as long as they have an efficient IP rating to suit outdoor weather conditions.
Sealing your downlights properly is key when you’re placing them outside. Recessed downlights can be placed in an array of places throughout your garden, including decking, paths and steps.
Compared to an LED outdoor wall light, downlights give you more free range and creativity in terms of where you can situate them.
LED lighting in general is super easy to install and has a long list of benefits. Compared to incandescent outdoor lights, LED downlights don’t require much upkeep or frequent replacement.
Our downlight product range within our collection has something for everyone - whether you want ones with black or white rims, we’ve got it all.
Are LED Downlights Eco-Friendly?
Yes, LED downlights are eco-friendly. Like all LED lighting solutions, our downlights are some of the best lighting fixtures to use if you’re wanting to make more eco-conscious decisions around your home and outdoor space.
Because LEDs have an extended life span compared to regular, incandescent light bulbs, they’re able to last longer - up to 50,000 hours to be exact.
LED downlights aren’t prone to overheat, which makes them a safer option to go for compared to other lights. Because of their ability to not overheat, LED downlights are energy-efficient and have a more positive impact on the planet.
An LED product won’t contribute to landfills anywhere near as much as regular lighting solutions, which has a great impact o the environment.
Best Places to Install LED Downlights Outdoors
LED downlights are typically found inside homes across the ceiling in bathrooms, kitchens and living rooms. With more people starting to understand the benefits of staying in over lockdown, homeowners have begun to style their outdoor space using lights, furniture and plants.
Whether it’s a party you’re hosting in your garden or just some quiet drinks on your deck, having LED downlights installed within the lap of your garden will not only impress your guests but also make their visit to your home much safer.
If you’ve been considering having LED downlights across your outdoor space but don’t know where’s best to position them, read on to find out where the places would be.
Decking has become a staple in most gardens across the country, acting as a designated space to hold BBQs, parties and summertime events on a warm evening. You can easily integrate furniture such as tables, couches and chairs into your decking space, along with both subtle and more exposed lighting features.
LED downlights can be situation into wooden decks, providing an excellent lighting source for yourself and your family. You don’t have to stop there when it comes to lighting up your decking - strip lights and garden spike lights can also help finish your design off.
Many gardens have pathways, either leading to your door or another section of your outdoor space. LED downlights can act as a clear indication of where to walk, whilst adding excellent visibility.
Pathways often go through grassy areas, which are prone to being muddy - this is why many people choose to install a pathway, so no mess gets brought back into the house.
If your pathway is longer than normal and you have a larger grass landscape, having extra outdoor wall lights or hanging lamps could help add more visibility.
