The Fabulous Festoon & Why They’re So Popular


With the right lighting fixtures, you can turn even the dullest looking space into a cosy and welcoming one.

Festoon lights are so versatile, they can be used anywhere.

If you’ve ever been interested in decorating a space, be it outdoors or indoors, you already know that lighting is an important factor for setting the right mood. You’ve also probably heard of festoon lights as they have been riding the popularity wave for quite some time now. And even if you’ve never changed a light bulb in your life, chances are you’ve bathed in the warm glow of festoon lights at least once.

When you want to set the mood for a party or a special event, festoon lights are the safest bet. They give off a wonderful festive vibe and are perfect for every occasion and location. Whether you want to create a romantic ambience for a wedding, liven up the atmosphere at a party or a festival, or design a warm and inviting environment for an alfresco spot where you can dine with your friends, festoon lighting has got you covered.

You don’t have to be a skilled handyman to install festoon lights as they’re pretty easy to handle. If you feel you’re up to the tasks, you can do all the work yourself. However, most companies that provide festoon lighting solutions also have teams of professional electricians and offer installation services to ensure a fast and hassle-free process. It’s up to you to decide which way to go.

Festoon lights are both practical and beautiful, so you’ll get the best of both worlds. They can transform and elevate any setting and you don’t need to be a professional designer to achieve great results. They’re simple, yet create an eye-catching and impactful design and have the magical power to enhance the visual appeal of a space as fast as you can say light!

Even if you don’t have a special event to host, festoon lights are still a great idea to brighten up your space and give it a bit of extra oomph. Why stick to your old and tired lighting fixtures when you can use festoon lighting to add character and style? You simply can’t go wrong with festoon lights.

Festoon lights generally come in two different cord styles – flush or hanging. We stock hanging festoon lights, which have a little bit of extra length or cord that hangs from the main string. These are perfect for decorative and special effect lighting, and work well as festive lighting around your gardens and entertainment areas.

Light Bulb

Our festoon lights come with 10 or 24 Warm White LED Globes that are detachable and replaceable, allowing you to decide if you want to switch things up. If you do want to change the globes or light bulbs, remember to consider the kind of atmosphere you are hoping to create. After all, there are 10 to 24 globes in one string, so you do need to decide on the brightness you want carefully.

Most outdoor string lights come with an IP rating of 23 to 44. If you’re looking to use your festoon lights inside your home only, a lower IP rating is fine. However, if your lights will be used outside or may be exposed to weather conditions, it is better to get one with an IP44 rating or higher.

Our festoon lights are suitable for use both indoors and outdoors. They are not only resistant to dust and water, but are also sunproof, windproof and snowproof.
