How To Create Beautiful Lighting
With Festoon Lights
If you’d love to create beautiful ambient lighting in your outdoor area I’ll walk you through how to do it, and importantly what to avoid. Over the past 10 years, I’ve helped thousands of customers with their outdoor lighting.
The right type of lighting has a beautiful effect on an outdoor area, and that’s why I study lighting design and layout.
Festoon lights are mood lights, they create a relaxing ambience and chilled atmosphere in your outdoor space. However, not all festoon lights do this.
The Secret To Creating Beautiful Ambient Lighting
It is important to get the right brightness and the right colour light with your festoon lights.
Let me explain…
You don’t want your lights too bright, or too white.
That’s because over the years we’ve discovered Warm White 2220K gives you that beautiful ambient warm white glow. And you want festoon lights you can dim.
Put it this way…
If your lights are too bright, and the light colour is anything close to cool white, instead of creating an ambient warm white glow, you get a cold and sterile light that looks like an operating theatre.
Not a great look when you’re entertaining. (Might put your guest off too.)
That’s why all our bulbs are Warm White 2200K and dimmable.
The Layout Of For Your Festoon Lights Is Important
Because This Affects How Your Area Looks Lit Up
When customers send me their plan and pictures of the area they want to light, here’s some of the process I go through to work out the best layout.
This will give you some great ideas and important points to consider.
- First, I look at the size of the area they want festoon lights in, and I look at what’s around the area.
- I study the pictures of their outdoor area because every outdoor area has its own unique style and character, and I want the lighting design to flow into this.
- If a customer has marked on their plan a pattern they like, I look at this and see how it fits into the space, based on the size of the area, and what the outdoor area looks like.
- When I look at a customer’s plan and pictures I want to see where doors and windows lead onto the area, or is the area they want to light out in the open.
- I look at the pictures for any height issues, because if you hang your festoon lights too low, it makes the area feel cramped.
- Then I’ll work out a few different patterns the festoon lights could be hung in based on everything I’ve accessed.
- I want the lighting to flow through the outdoor area space. The pattern should suit the style and character of your outdoor area. The lights should never make your area feel boxed in. And the lights should never feel overbearing.

I love studying lighting design, so I’m always learning new things, and I love helping customers with their lighting plan. The right type of lighting has such a beautiful effect on your outdoor area.
Custiomised Festoon Lighting
For Unique Patten Layouts
Often, I get customers who are after a unique festoon layout for their outdoor area.
And often, these unique layouts require me to cut and wire festoon lighting to suit the layout. That’s okay. I’m here to help.
If you’ve got a unique layout or design for your outdoor area, email through a rough plan and some pictures and I’ll work out the best way to do it.
Here’s a couple of customised lighting layouts I’ve made for customers to give you an idea.
What About Bulb Spacing Along The Festoon Cable
Should I Get 900mm or 500mm?
Let’s unpack this…
It comes down to the area you’re lighting, and what looks best in that area. At the end of the day, bulb spacing is a personal choice.
Here’s what you’ll want to consider:
In smaller outdoor areas the 500mm spacings can look clustered, and too much. With 500mm spacings, every 20m you’ve got 40 bulbs.
Compare that with the 900mm spacing festoon, every 20m you’ve got 22 bulbs. That’s 18 less bulbs.
Yes, festoon lighting is a feature, however, it should never feel overbearing, clustered, or dominate a space.
The 900mm socket spacings tends to flow through an outdoor area, and keeps that feeling of openness an outdoor area has.
If you’re not sure what’s best for your outdoor area, the 900mm or 500mm area give me a call.
Which Bulbs Should You Choose
With Your Festoon Lights?
What I’ve observed over the years is, the choice on bulbs for customers usually comes down to two things once they know warm white 2200K is the best light colour.
- The shape and style of the bulb
- The brightness of the bulb
Let me explain…
I understand if you haven’t seen the bulbs in real life, it’s hard to work out from pictures on a website just how bright the bulbs are.
I’ll help you with this.
I’ve seen my lights in hundreds of outdoor settings, and I personally install festoon lights on a regularly basis. So I have a solid idea how our bulbs look in outdoor areas of all different shapes and sizes.
Now I’ll run you through our 24V bulbs:
24V 1.2Watt G45 & S14 Bulbs:
At 120 lumens (lumens is what light brightness is measured in) these bulbs give off plenty of light, and 98% of customers get the dimmer so they can control the light level.
24V 2.4Watt A60 & ST64 Bulbs:
At 235 lumens, these bulbs give you plenty of light, and again, 98% or more of customers get the dimmer so they can control the light level.
Put it this way…
If you really like the shape and style of the 24V 1.2Watt Bulbs, there’s no need to be concerned that you won’t get enough light, because all our bulbs have been purposely designed to give you all the light you need. And importantly you can dim them.
So now it simply comes down to which shape and style of bulb you like best.

24V Transformer & Dimmer Set-Up Look Like?
These two drawings show you the set-up of the lights.
Why Customers Get The Waterproof
Remote Control Dimmer

Add one of our waterproof remote-control dimmers to your order so you can dial the light level up or down, depending on the mood, vibe, and scene you want to create in your outdoor area.
Festoon lights you can’t dim are not festoon lights, they are spot lights.

When you add the Remote Control Dimmer to your order, it arrives set-up, and ready to go.
To add a dimmer to your order, press the Black 24V Festoon Accessories Button.
Hanging Your Festoon Lights
If your festoon spans are over 4m, I’d suggest you use a support wire.
Because then your festoon cable is evenly supported and hung in a way that ensures no one point takes excessive strain.

Here’s What Customer’s Have To Say
About Our Festoon Lights…
Just wanted to say thanks for all your help with the lights. Measurements were perfect, install kit was great and your communication made everything so much easier.
They look great in the backyard, they have completely changed the space.
We finally had a weekend without guests or without rain!Started on Saturday and Steve & I enjoyed plugging away and being creative / innovative as we progressed.
The result is just so stunning and has uplifted the walkways and bbq area so much more than I could ever have imagined.I just love the way the lighting is so soft and of course having the dimmer is fantastic creating different moods and night vision practicality for guest arrival.
Just a few pics for you to see, - I hope to do better ones soon, but wanted you to see your glorious lighting.
Thanks so much.
I purchased my stunning dimmable festoon lighting kit which adorns my pergola like they were made for each other from you and have been a fan ever since!
Finally with a bit of fine weather I’ve got around to putting up the festoon lights. They look amazing and I’m really happy (see below)
The result on our deck is great, and the remote dimmer is perfect. When the grape vine has leaves again in summer it will be spectacular.
