Looking for the best vintage outdoor lighting to create that classic look in your outdoor space? Our team of lighting experts at William Sugg & Co. Ltd. can help you to choose the correct lights to help you create that vintage look. Here are some of our tips to consider when choosing your vintage outdoor lighting:
Make the most of your home’s architectural features
If you’re looking for the best vintage outdoor lighting you need to ensure the lights you choose are decorative but also functional. Make the most of your home’s architectural features by highlighting specific areas of your garden or the materials of the building while also ensuring they are placed in a practical position to make the most out of the light. One of the best vintage outdoor lights to choose as a decorative feature piece as well as giving the best light is our Heritage Cast Column range.
Yellow or white lighting?
Another aspect to consider when choosing your vintage outdoor lighting is the colour of the light as choosing the wrong colour can really impact the atmosphere you are hoping to achieve. If you are looking for a more relaxing atmosphere for the evening that gives a more authentic vintage look, using yellow tones in your vintage outdoor lighting is best. If it’s a brighter, sharper, more modern light you are looking for a white tone will work best. Or if you are looking for something a little more extravagant to create a medieval atmosphere, our flambeaux lighting range would be a great addition.
Materials used in our vintage outdoor lights
When choosing the best vintage outdoor lighting for your home, the Great British weather is definitely something to consider when choosing the materials your lights are made from. Our outdoor lighting range is manufactured using a variety of high quality materials. The classics from our heritage lighting range are made and hand-crafted with copper or aluminium and our columns are manufactured with cast aluminium or ductile iron. These particular materials are used to ensure maximum durability and are best suited for the harsher outdoor environments. Not only should you consider the materials, but also where you are planning to place the lights. The more exposed to the weather your lighting is, the more likely your lights will become worn.
