String lights are perfect for turning any home or garden into a glitzy wonderland. There are many types of them for example, indoor, outdoor, battery operated, LED and even solar powered. They also make great gift ideas and are ideal for weddings and parties. |
Outdoor lighting always look beautiful but you will need to make sure when purchasing them that they are properly weather proofed and think very carefully about where electrical plugs are placed. What you need to look for is IP weatherproof quality ratings, IP stands for international protection. IP 20 means that this type is only suitable for indoor use.
Whereas IP 44 means that they are suitable for outdoor use as they are weatherproof from water showers from all directions therefore they can be used anywhere outside. When you buy outside lighting you have to be cautious as to where you are going to plug them in so, you have 2 safe options for this you can either find a suitable electrical socket indoors or use an aqua box these are available from most electrical stores.
If you are buying indoor sets such as fairy's which are mainly used for Christmas trees, sometimes it’s better to use ones such as LED or battery operated. Also outdoor LED lighting works just as well indoors so this gives you the option for a wide range of different colors and multi twinkling sequences, so you can create the effect you want to achieve.
LED lights are very different from normal ones as they are three times brighter than our traditional filament bulbs, they also last ten times longer and they save a vast amount of energy.
LED means light emitting diodes these are incredibly bright and are more appealing than normal filament bulbs, this is why they are used in string lights and are perfect for use at any day time event.
