Outdoor Commercial Lighting

Outdoor commercial lighting is designed with a combination of practicality, security and aesthetics in mind. Its design and specification has increased in recent years due to a rise in the demand for a seamless connection between indoor and outdoor spaces in residential and commercial properties.

By using a range of landscape lighting products in cleverly designed schemes, specifiers improve the user experience, regardless of the time of year or changes in weather conditions.

Detail Lighting works with interior designers, architects and property developers to design the most appropriate, sustainable and cost-effective outdoor commercial lighting designs for their projects.

We take into account the purpose of the building, its location and what the client wants to achieve in the long term from their lighting design.

Outdoor Commercial Lighting Design Considerations

Outdoor lighting schemes serve to highlight key features or create dramatic shadows for a unique ambiance. Spotlights are ideal for these purposes, whether you want to showcase the entire structure or accentuate specific details.

Outdoor commercial lighting shapes the atmosphere with creative lighting techniques. Play with silhouettes and shadows to achieve a desired mood. Strategic placement of spotlights behind plants or architectural elements can add a touch of intrigue.

Surface lighting, like LED sconces and wall washes, provides practical illumination. These fixtures serve a variety of purposes, including security, wayfinding, and enhancing the building’s curb appeal. In hospitality settings, they can create a welcoming and inviting atmosphere for outdoor dining and socialising.

Detail Lighting specialises in designing outdoor lighting schemes for a wide range of commercial spaces. We prioritise energy efficiency and light pollution reduction by incorporating motion sensors in areas where constant illumination isn’t necessary.

The Benefits of Outdoor Commercial Lighting

Interior designers, architects and property developers have, over the years, come to realise how outdoor commercial lighting adds value to their projects.

Outdoor commercial lighting expands spaces, improves kerb appeal, highlights features and areas within an outside space, increases a property’s value and provides enhanced safety and security.

Commercial LED Lighting

Outdoor commercial LED lighting transforms your commercial property, unlocking a world of possibilities after dark. This strategic investment goes beyond simple illumination, offering a powerful combination of aesthetics, functionality, and cost-effectiveness:

  • High-efficiency LED fixtures bathe your outdoor space in clear, inviting light. Patios, walkways, and entrances become usable extensions of your business, perfect for extended hours, outdoor dining, or social gatherings.


  • Deter crime and create a safe environment with strategically placed outdoor LED lighting. Bright areas discourage unwanted activity, while clear visibility ensures peace of mind for staff and customers.


  • Strategically designed commercial LED lighting highlights your building’s architecture and creates a stunning first impression. Choose from a variety of colour temperatures and beam patterns to showcase your brand identity and create a welcoming atmosphere.


  • Commercial LED technology is renowned for its efficiency. Compared to traditional lighting, outdoor LED systems significantly reduce energy consumption, resulting in lower utility bills and a smaller environmental footprint.


  • Outdoor commercial LED fixtures are built to withstand the elements. Their weatherproof design and long lifespan ensure reliable performance for years to come, minimising maintenance needs.
