BLT Direct Reveals Most Popular Lockdown Lighting Projects

BLT Direct, a leading stockist of high-quality lighting products and accessories, has revealed its bestselling lockdown products as the nation turned to home and garden improvements to keep them occupied during coronavirus restrictions.

With the UK government urging the population to stay home and with millions furloughed, many homeowners have been using the lockdown period to take on home renovations and lighting projects to illumination gardens and outdoor spaces.

Many have also been decluttering and upgrading storage spaces too, with LED light battens in both warm white and natural daylight shades being a popular choice due to their energy efficiency and budget friendly price tag.

Available in both 5 and 6-foot models, the LED battens by V-TAC are also impervious to moisture, making them ideal for garages and sheds.

Halogen lighting has also been flying off the shelves, with MR16 halogen lightbulbs offering an excellent solution to illuminating kitchens and bathrooms that have undergone a lockdown makeover.

As this type of lighting is due to become obsolete in the near future, many money-savvy shoppers have been stocking up on supplies of halogen lightbulbs to ensure they have a good stockpile of these high-intensity light sources.

The warm weather that swept across the UK during lockdown has also seen a surge in sales of fly killer units and replacement tubes. With windows and doors kept open to allow heat to escape from the home, winged insects have been finding their way indoors and can be difficult to remove without the help of a fly killer unit. By stocking a wide range of electric and glue board units and replacement tubes, BLT Direct has been able to keep up with the demand for an insect-free home with free shipping on all orders over £60.

Finally, many homeowners have been turning their attention to outdoor staples and creating incredible illuminated features in their gardens thanks to waterproof LED strip lighting.

Available in a wide range of lengths and colours, LED strip lights are ideal for brightening garden paths and flower borders as well as illuminating decked areas as a garden focal point that can be enjoyed in all weathers.
