Creating an enchanting lighting atmosphere with outdoor luminaires

Stylish outdoor lighting has the ability to make a good first impression on your guests before they even enter the house. Carefully chosen outdoor lights can lead to increased safety and will also make your house or garden stand out. It is easy to find matching outdoor and garden lights for an impressive illumination in our well-assorted and affordable lighting online shop.

Which outdoor luminaire for what area?

With the unbelievably large selection of outdoor and garden luminaires, you can quickly lose track. But before you decide to light up your house or garden, fundamental considerations have to be made:

What do I want to illuminate? How do I want to illuminate it? Should the luminaires used fit into their surroundings, stand out or they should not be seen?

These are questions that should be clarified before purchasing the right garden and outdoor luminaire.

Attractive façade lighting with outdoor luminaires

Would you like to illuminate your house in an unforgettable way? Then our many outdoor lights offer you numerous possibilities. How about a facade light with motion detector, for example? This provides not only a great ambience but also ads extra security at night, saves energy and decorates the wall. Or maybe LED recessed spots for the ground? In this way, the façade of a building can be illuminated indirectly from hidden luminaires, thus creating a special lighting effect.

Pleasant atmosphere with outdoor lights for the terrace

In addition to our numerous facade and wall luminaires for outdoor use, our free-standing luminaires, on a pole or close to ground can be used to illuminate the garden or terrace area around your house in a way to suit your needs. Our garden lights are usually equipped with energy-saving and very powerful LED light sources, which create an special atmosphere depending on the color temperature.

Path lighting for more safety at night

You must know it: having a barbecue in the backyard with your guests and it's getting pretty dark. When it's over your guests have to find their way back safely through your garden without getting lost or falling into the garden pond. Thus you should ensure safe path lighting. The recessed spots already mentioned, which can be recessed directly into the path slabs, will help you here. Or you can provide the necessary brightness with pole lights or small ground lanterns.

Which IP protection class should my outdoor luminaire have?

A very important aspect when buying garden luminaires and outdoor lamps is the question of the IP protection class. IP stands for International Protection and tells you how well your luminaire is protected against the ingress of solid foreign bodies and water. A common ranking for facade or garden luminaires is the IP44 marking, which means the following:

  • The first digit indicates the type of solid against which the luminaire is protected.

In our case (4), the body with a diameter ≥ would be 1.0 mm. Example: insects usually wont get in but dust will.

  • The second digit refers to the permeability of the luminaire housing to water.

In our example (also 4), this means protection against splash water from all sides.

Which color temperature is suitable for which area?

Since most outdoor and garden luminaires now use highly efficient, energy-saving LED lamps, they are available in various color temperatures. So you should think in advance about which light color you want to illuminate your garden, facade, pool or pond.

The light emitted by luminaires with warm white LEDs is perceived as particularly warm and pleasant. It creates a feel-good atmosphere and is therefore ideal for lighting terraces, balconies, garden seating areas or pavilions. This is due to the reddish or yellowish part of the light spectrum, similar with the classic bulb or candle light.

However, when it comes to safety in the dark, it is advisable to choose luminaires with a higher color temperature. A façade luminaire with motion detector or a path luminaire in the garden should ideally be fitted with a neutral white light source. This light is usually more bright, provides the best contrast as it is very similar to daylight.

Ultimately, however, it is the personal taste of light color that counts.

How bright should outdoor and garden luminaires be?

The brightness of the luminaires is at least as important as the color temperature mentioned in the last section. But even here a universal recommendation is difficult to make.

From a purely scientific point of view, an LED lamp with higher luminous flux (expressed in lumens) is brighter. A higher lumen value is recommended for facade and path luminaires, which should provide better visibility in the dark. Ambience lighting in the patio or lounge area in the garden requires a lower lumen value with the exception of places where you eat or read a book. Here the light should be as bright as inside your home. You should also find out in advance how bright your outdoor lighting can be in your place of residence from 10 pm to 6 am, as there are guidelines for this too.
