While you may not know exactly what fitting you will choose, it’s ideal to have knowledge of what type and function you may like when it comes to the main fitting types.
Exterior Wall Lighting does not only perform the functional task of lighting up dark spaces, it can also be used to highlight outdoor features. For the front elevation of your home, you’ll be amazed at the options available, from the traditional Cylinder Up/Down Light to the unique Ori Three Directional Light. The choices are endless as this type of lighting defines the style of your home and creates a first impression. Functional exterior lighting can also be achieved through the use of Bunker Lights or Spot Lights, and work well when combined with sensors.
Most exterior wall lights can also be used internally.
