Creating a terrace or garden area with a perfect ambiance is simple. However, you must have the appropriate products to really make the most of this area.

Today at homify, we have curated a few beautiful examples of garden lights to show you just how inspiring your garden or backyard can be. In fact, we'd like to make it sparkle with style.

What's great about this is that there is also so much range when it comes to garden lights. In fact, you may not even know where to begin because there are so many options available. 

For additional assistance, it can also sometimes be beneficial to engage in dialogue with a design professional who knows exactly what they are talking about. 

Are you curious to find out more? Let's take a look!

1. Attractive

We all know what a big role lights can play when it comes to decorating our facade, especially in winter. Especially around Christmas, this is a wonderful tradition. 

Remember that Christmas is the festival of light and lights bring a wonderful glow to the darker months.

In this design, we can see how having lights across the facade illuminates the entire garden and terrace space. You would definitely do a double take if you saw this home!

2. Subtle

Often we put a light on the terrace, which provides the necessary light for the exterior space. In many cases, this is sufficient and creates the right atmosphere, allowing us to use the terrace and garden at night.

However, sometimes you want to add a little bit more to your exterior space. 

In this design, we come across a stone lamp, which provides the garden area with a little bit more light. This allows the kids to play in the garden after sunset. It's also unique and makes for a very interesting look and feel!

3. Terracotta

Terracotta is a material that has been adored for centuries because of its simplicity and warm appearance. It makes for a very suitable addition to the garden.

You can use terracotta for lanterns or candles. These will provide the right ambiance, while adding a rustic touch to the space. Its a wonderful mix between modern lighting and a more traditional look and feel.

4. Modern

You can hang lights outside your home or you can choose to put some atmospheric and more modern lights on a table on the terrace or in the garden. This is a great way to add mood to the exterior space in a very contemporary way.

In this image, we can see an example of what the device looks like and how well it would work with any outdoor furniture. This gives a whole new twist to the idea of terrace or garden lights. 

5. Colour splendor

Especially if you like a bit of creativity and colour in your designs, why not invest in some lights that add a colour boost to the garden?

In this design we come across a very festive atmosphere with lights wrapped around the trees, illuminating the design and detail of the garden. It also emphasises the gorgeous facade.

6. Mysterious

To create a mysterious oriental atmosphere, you need the right lights outside your home. This lighting creates that exact atmosphere! The blue tones are calming and relaxing, while providing the exterior space with a delicious source of visual tranquility.

This is exactly the design that you need if you want to relax in the glow of your terrace lights. Hang them up, insert candles and you'll immediately transport yourself to an exotic country like India.

7. Modern

For a modern look and feel outside your home, you should obviously choose modern lighting.

This lighting for example, makes it very easy to create a sophisticated atmosphere. It is also a convenient lighting source with a subtle look and feel.

Against the backdrop of the hedge, this is a very unique and special lighting that brings a modern setting to the garden and terrace.

8. More mysticism

For the ultimate outdoor experience, choose an oriental finish like the designers have done here. This applies to both the terrace and the lighting itself. 

In this example, we can see how the design introduces an Indian style to the look and feel that is truly inspirational. 

For lovers of the Indian culture, these details, designs and colours are a must-have!

But if you find something like this a bit too much, then you must go for your own unique design.

9. Delicate

For a more delicate and classic look and feel, this may be the type of lighting that you need.

As we can see in the image, the unique lantern takes on the shape of a flame. This lighting design also works beautifully with any style of exterior space, while creating a pleasant glow on the terrace.

Especially in summer evenings, this lighting creates a wonderful mood. It also decorates the space subtly, creating a very beautiful ambiance.

10. Speaking of ambiance

When we think of the word atmosphere, we can see just how much potential outdoor lighting has.

In this example, the purple lighting illuminates and changes the look and feel of the entire facade. Don't you love the sensual feel that is created here?

This type of lighting works for a garden, terrace and facade, with the purple tones bringing in a fantastic contemporary design.

11. Decorative

This outdoor lighting brings in a beautiful concept to the design. It is a cross between a sculpture and a light source, bringing a very unique and entrancing look and feel to the exterior space. 

The light shines through the holes and introduces a very intriguing phenomenon to the facade. This truly creates a magical atmosphere. 

The material is understated, however, with a minimalist look and feel. This contrasts so well with the warm glow that emanates through the holes. 

These simple little lights can help you to achieve your dream design!

12. Organic

This terrace light is very organic, taking on an artistic design with a conceptual twist. This lighting is easy to install and hangs from a higher plane. 

Whether it is summer or winter, this light creates a very intimate and cosy atmosphere.
