Adding outdoor lighting to your garden pergola can enhance the look and feel of your space. By adding some simple illumination, you can transform your pergola into a twilight oasis that is perfect for quiet relaxation, or outdoor entertaining (so listen up, garden party fans!).


Choosing the best garden lights for a Pergola

When choosing outdoor lighting for your pergola, it is important to consider the style of the structure, as well as the surrounding areas. For example, if your pergola is attached to your house, you may want to consider using lights that match the style of your home’s exterior lighting.

In addition, any outdoor entertaining areas should be well lit to create an inviting and comfortable atmosphere for guests - meaning a brighter light that sufficiently illuminates the area would likely be a better fit.


Matching Styles

There are many different types of outdoor lights, ranging from traditional light bulbs, and vintage 'Edison' bulbs, to more modern and contemporary options. For example, you may want to choose string lights with a vintage-inspired look if you have a wooden pergola.



On the other hand, if you’re looking for something more sleek and modern, installing some recessed lighting or mounted wall sconces could be a better option, especially if you have a metal or aluminium pergola (all of these pergola styles are available here on Pergola.co.uk!)


Solar-Powered Lighting Solutions!


Solar-powered lights are a great option for pergolas since they are easy to install and don’t require any wiring. Keep in mind, however, that solar lights will need to be placed in an area that gets direct sunlight to work properly - so the natural 'open slat' design of our various pergolas is perfect for mounting solar-powered lights too!



Another thing to keep in mind is that solar lights generally provide a softer, more ambient light, as opposed to a brighter light that illuminates a larger area. So, if you’re looking for garden lights that will make your pergola stand out at night, solar lights may not be the best option. There are many different types of outdoor lights available, so it's important to consider your pergola as well as the surrounding areas before you make a final decision.

With some careful thought and planning, choosing garden lighting for your pergola can be quick and easy! So what are you waiting for - get started today!
