It comes as no great surprise to anyone that the Great British summer is yet to really kick in. Plans for garden parties and barbecues have been shelved for the time being, while the UK enjoys one of the wettest months since records began. We are assured that there will eventually be some warmer weather on the horizon, and when it does decide to eventually arrive, it is important to be absolutely ready to fire up that barbecue and invite everybody over. Whilst the weather is so dull, it might be advantageous to consider a new outdoor lighting arrangement, to prepare for those balmy summer evenings that we are promised for the future. BLT Direct is a specialist provider of such lighting solutions, and has a selection of outdoor lighting options that will illuminate any patio, decking or garden area. BLT Direct's Solar 120 LED White Multi Action Kit is a fantastic way to provide illumination for an outdoor space. This energy-saving kit ticks all the boxes; its solar powered methods are easy on both the energy bills and the environment, and the charming white LED lights can be strung around a parasol, throughout a gazebo or along a fence for a beautiful and chic look. The multi-action facility can add a little interest, and the generous 14 metres of wire ensures that the kit will stretch to span the average decking area or patio. This great energy-saving solution to an outdoor lighting problem is available for just £16.59, a saving of 45% on the RRP. Ground lights are another exceptional way to brighten an outdoor seating area, and can also be used to highlight particular features of a garden. They are great for placing around water features and can emphasise a certain plant or statue beautifully. BLT Direct has an extensive range of halogen and LED Ground Lights which vary in size, design, finish and colour. Their robust construction means that once they are in the ground, they will remain sturdy and durable, and the lifespan of an average LED ground light bulb is a huge 100,000 – that’s a lot of evening barbecues and parties before they have to be replaced. One MR11 20 Watt Stainless Steel Fitting is available from BLT Direct priced at just £20.18.
Once the sun has set, many in the UK can find that the evening becomes a little chilly, especially if there is no cloud cover. For evenings when the appeal of sitting out in the garden long after sunset is just too strong, the Winterheat 1300 Watt Outdoor Quartz Heater is a fantastic solution. The toughened safety glass and durable construction make it perfect for use around children or pets, and the unit is completely weather-proof and suited to all weather conditions. Available from BLT Direct priced at just £69.99, the lamp can be wall mounted or placed on the floor, and will provide warmth and light for many summers to come.
