A terrace or a patio are the perfect places to enjoy warm summer evenings with your family, friends or simply in the company of a good book. However, in order to enjoy any of these special moments you need a light both functional and decorative, able to create a cozy and intimate ambience that will help you relax and unwind from the daily routine.
An elegant interplay of lights and shades for a suggestive ambience
While temperatures start increasing, a terrace can be a real life-saving place where to continue an evening, taste flavourful nibbles and enjoy a cool summer breeze. In order to do so, though, it is essential to create the perfect atmosphere and highlight the natural beauty of this space by carefully choosing the most adequate lights. To this extent, for general lighting purposes it is advisable to install either a ceiling or wall light source that can offer the basic light need. A bottom-up directional light, on the other hand, will help enhancing both architectural or decorative designs, such as a pond, plant or tree. Finally, soft mood lights around a table, bench or sofa can help to create a relaxing and dreamy atmosphere.
A smart and pro-environment choice
Solar lighting is an excellent choice not only from the economic point of view but also from the environmental one. Indeed, solar power is a reliable and renewable source of energy that we can take advantage of with a small initial investment. By doing so, we will be able to enjoy free light all over the product life cycle. More specifically, our solar outdoor lamps are very safe and versatile as they can be installed wherever we want in gardens, terraces or entrances very easily, without electrical wires around. Discover our solar collection which has a wide variety of compact and stylish designs.
A word of caution for light pollution
The negative effects of bright lights are an important aspect to be considered. Not only the ambience can be spoiled but strong lights can also cause discomfort to neighbours and disorientate animals. Therefore, when floodlights are installed it is important to avoid having a bright light shining into a neighbours’ window. Indeed, the brightness of light sources must be enough to enjoy the evening, but not excessive in order to admire the starry sky.
