Calling all bar managers, hotel owners and electricians: Are you or your clients looking to add that little bit of “pizzazz” to your parties this summer? Look no further than Lyco, the place where you can find the best in outdoor feature lights. From our Nagaland LED Wall Washer to our more simple LED linkable flexi strips, there is no easier way to light up a party and bring great design and trustworthy craftsmanship to your place of work.
The afore-mentioned Nagaland LED Wall Washer allows you to easily create stunning light displays that your guests, regulars or clients will love. Use it to illuminate a wall or feature with static white light or a huge array of colours; you can also use the remote control to instantly change the colour display, keeping your party-goers entertained throughout the night.
This wonderfully designed piece of kit, which be used solo or have other fittings added to it, has also been IP65 rated, meaning it can withstand wet weather. It’s made from incredibly durable anodised aluminium, ensuring it retains its look and function for years. So why not set yourself apart from other bars and hotels this summer with this outdoor light?
The Multi-action Solar Fairy Lights provides you with a relatively low cost way of bringing style to your outdoor areas this summer. Simply choose from our 5 or 10 metre lengths, select your colour and wrap around posts, pillars or trees to create a great effect. These outdoor lights are really easy to install and come with a choice of 6 lighting functions. Being IP44 rated, they are able to withstand the outdoors but are best suited to a little bit of shelter.
Why not light up everywhere outside with the 5 metre LED Linkable Flexi strips. These wonderful outdoor lights have been rated IP65 making them suitable for use in even the wettest of conditions. Just because it’s raining, it doesn’t mean your party has to be a wash out. These beautiful lights come in lots of different colours from daylight to purple, so can go with any colour scheme you or your client may have. Alternatively, for something a little different, why not choose the Colour Changing Linkable LED Flexi Strips. Easy to install and use in conjunction with other flexi strip colours (via a transformer), you can use their remote control to change the light colours, giving you a stunning “lightshow” effect at your fingertips.
Festoons are the perfect way to show off your party at your hotel/bar. Clients will also love this fantastic array of primary coloured light bulbs, which will brighten up any evening! These outdoor lights are weatherproof, so will still work in all types of weather. Hang them from trees, gazebos, conservatories and more to get the party in full swing. Stick with multicoloured or choose from one colour if you have a theme – the great thing about these lights is that the colour can be changed all the time – so when you feel like a change, simply take one lot of bulbs out and put a new set of colours in.
Planters and Floorlights
Design and lighting now go hand-in-hand and the Assisi LED Planters prove this. These stunning LED planters, which come in two sizes, provide you with the perfect way to house and light up plants without the need for additional lighting. If you want to bring beautiful contemporary style to any bar, hotel or public place, then these outdoor plant lights are the ones for you. Easy to install, just remember to buy the relevant weatherproof sockets and hey presto! Beautiful, crisp white light and simple design is yours at a flick of a switch. Although designed for outside, these plant pots are IP44 rated, so again are best for sheltered areas, where people can make the most from their light. As mentioned, they comes in two sizes, 28cm high for standard sized plants and 40cm high for larger bushes.
Last but certainly not least, bring the indoors outdoors with the Levada Outdoor Floor Lights. These stylish lampshade-inspired outdoor lights come with a fashionable light or dark brown Poly Ratan shade with sealed glass diffuser and a heavy stone base that creates a fusion between outside and inside materials. Nowadays, it’s all about creating outdoor living spaces, and these outdoor lamps are testament to that. They are also IP44 rated, meaning that although they are suited for outside, they are more suited to sheltered places like patios or gazebos.
So as staying in is apparently the new going-out, create an outside space in your hotel or bar that people will want to visit again and again, with help from these brilliant outdoor light features from Lyco.
