One of the more unique and visually-pleasing lighting techniques in decorative garden lighting is the use of fiber optics. Fiber optics is the science of transmitting light via optical fibers. Optical fibers are extruded cylinders of plastic or glass used to transmit light. All that is required to illuminate the optic fibers is a single light bulb; making fiber optic lighting an affordable garden lighting choice. Another great advantage of fiber optic lighting is that it uses no electrical current; therefore it is safe to place in and around water without danger of electrocution. Therefore, fiber optic lighting can be used to illuminate a garden pond, tree trunks and branches, shrubs, plant containers and even a patio deck.
You can buy modern industrial style pendants to make your kitchen stand out. Use etched glass with bronze finish for a traditional kitchen dcor. For more contemporary styles, brushed nickel may work best.
Another simple and fun idea to add to your garden lighting is sting lights. String lights that use fiber optic lighting can be added to decks or used to decorate trees, shrubs and plants. A variety of adorable styles are available including butterflies, toads, flowers and dragonflies. These delicate lights add subtle lighting to drab areas while also adding attractive decor.
What is your timeline? Last minute event lighting is not impossible, but we wouldn't recommend it. Suppliers might not have exactly what you need in stock and then your carefully crafted plan can start to fall to pieces. Allow enough time to shop around, and compare price of hires that include event production support and that all important insurance.
Consider the size of your kitchen and then identify areas where you need task lights. If you have a kitchen island, you will definitely want pendant lights over it. The size of the pendant must be in relative to the island size.
