We’re currently renovating our front garden area and driveway and looking for driveway lighting for when those darker moths roll in. If you follow us on Instagram, you will have seen the progress of the garden area so far. You ca see how our garden started off here.
What we need in a driveway light
There are varying types of driveway lights in all sorts of styles but essentially driveway lights will be either flush to the ground and be lit from the ground, or a bollard high light and lit from above. I like the idea of a low ground flush light, however, as we get quite a bit of snow each year, I just wonder if we’d lose the use of them at the most darkest time of the year. So I’m swaying more towards a bollard style light for that reason.
Ultra modern, traditional and designer driveway lights
If you’ve read this blog long enough, you’ll know that when it comes to the fixtures and fittings, I like to stay timeless. I don’t want to be changing our these lights for a very long time, so I’ll be staying away from anything uber modern and I’ll also not be going for designer driveway lights.
Of course I’ve been pinning garden inspiration, if you want to take a look.
My Favourite driveway lights
We’ve been looking online for driveway lighting from lights.co.uk and also lighting ideas for a seating area and I wanted to show some of my favourites with you.
I’m sure you get a pretty good sense of feeling for the look we are trying to achieve with the driveway. Nothing too old fashioned or too modern, but something that will stand the test of time… Especially given that there is still so much to do to the exterior of the house. So when I tick this project off, I want it to be done for the foreseeable!
What outside lighting styles do you like? Let me know in the comments below, as I love to see all sorts of tastes and styles before I commit to a big purchase (I’m easily swayed!)
