Lighting is a very important element in decoration both indoors and outdoors. Both the presence of natural light and artificial lighting will play in favour or against the decoration as it is used. A well-lit home will be one that respects the entrance of natural light, illuminating generously when it is missing but also respecting the intimate and tenuous lighting for environments that require it.

In today’s range of ideas, we will focus on the exterior lighting of our house. Garden, facade, terrace or balcony, any outdoor area can be improved with adequate lighting. Appliances, spotlights and various light fixtures are some of the options we can use to maintain exterior lighting with style and good taste.’

If you want to improve the lighting of these sectors of the house, we have good news. To start you should know that through optimal lighting it is possible to convert an environment completely, giving it a very nice and cosy look.

While daylight plays an important role, and therefore it is crucial to surround yourself with windows and allow the sun’s rays to enter freely, in the afternoon and evening it is useful to have several points of light. This, because in the living and dining room are usually developed various activities that require good lighting.

  1. Decorating the walls with spectacular lights

On the walls of the terrace or on the facade of our home, strategically placed wall lights will give an original and very attractive touch. These can project light upwards, downwards or both ways creating an intimate and modern environment.

  1. Warm and welcoming environments

Applique lights usually give a refined touch to the rooms and can be made of various materials. There are metal ones of conical shape that can be located in a straight line and look very elegant. The light they project is warm and combines perfectly with the lighting of the fire that emanates from a beautiful outdoor fireplace.

  1. Special atmospheres

To illuminate only one sector, decorative lighting must be focused in accentuating certain areas creating a very special atmosphere.

  1. Illuminated night garden

The lighting of the gardens should be thought of considering the existing vegetation. If you have trees as points of interest, the lighting should focus on them, as do tall, decorative plants. Here you can create beautiful scenarios incorporating colour to the lighting.

  1. Highlighting the details of the materials

With the right lights and in the right places, the outside environment can become much more important and welcoming. It is the case of this stone wall that highlights its robustness and attractiveness.

  1. Funny and original lamps

Depending on the style we want to print to our spaces, we can offer a diversity of sensations. This is a modern and refined example, but it also conveys relaxation and informality with the decoration of the pergola and its bright luminous spheres.

  1. Highlighting the details

With light you can also highlight different points or areas of interest within an environment. Here we can see this sensational terrace in which each aspect has a particular light: plants, floor and details such as lanterns that add more charm to the environment.

  1. The way of income

To illuminate the main entrance of the house there are many proposals and designs that adapt to any style; the recessed lights, LED lights on the floor, half-height markings that point the way, are some of the suggestions for impeccable and safe lighting.

  1. The stairs

The stairs are one of the areas that must be clearly illuminated, because otherwise they can cause accidents. For this external environment, general lighting can be applied, to keep the entire area illuminated. Another option is to mark each step with recessed lights in the side walls.

  1. Hidden lights

The recessed lighting offers many possibilities to decorate the exterior of the house; It is the best source of light because it can remain hidden. At the foot of the floors, walls or the highlights of the space, these types of lights are excellent options.

  1. Combination of lights

Using a lighting combined with recessed lights in the wall or the ceiling and with lamps that reflect direct and indirect light, a spectacular decoration is achieved.

Strategic lighting for the facade of a spectacular house. Entrance road, main access, garage area and some architectural details highlighted lightly result in a house of stars.

Lighting in outdoor areas such as facades and gardens change the face of the total housing.

  1. The importance of a well-lit front door

The door must be perfectly illuminated because it is the direct access to our home, in addition to the locks on it, so we must have good visibility to enter the keys.


  1. Illuminated pool

And to finish this tour full of light and brightness, nothing more beautiful than a pool illuminated when the sun goes down. This can be located in different places: on the side walls inside the pool itself or outside, around, illuminating the environment.

As in the living room, various activities are carried out, from relaxation to more activity, it is necessary to have several points of light. Here you can play a lot with the type of lights: intensity, design and location. Any of these will depend on your goals, but also on the style of the house.
