Whether you’re throwing a party, reading a book or playing with the kids, outdoor floor lamps allow you to extend your home into the garden - even during the darker months. And with different lights available in all different shapes and sizes, whether you have a large garden or a small balcony, there’s a lamp to suit your circumstances.
What IP protection class do outdoor floor lamps need?
To be used outside, outdoor floor lamps require a higher IP protection rating than inside bulbs.
Outdoor lighting with IP44 is protected against rain. And against heavy rain, it needs to be IP65. If the light could be temporarily submerged in water, IP67 is required.
We recommend taking your outdoor floor lamp inside in bad weather/winter as most models can be easily dismantled and stored compactly.
Where are outdoor floor lamps used?
Outdoor floor lamps are easy to add as they can be powered by cable, plug or battery. They’re mainly used on a balcony, a terrace or quiet zone in a garden. While in the catering and hotel industry, you’ll find them in the guest area and around the pool or outdoor bar.
Are there outdoor floor lamps with colour change options?
Most outdoor floor lamps have integrated LEDs that often have a colour change option.
To find out if yours does, you’ll need to check the icons and item details of the respective outdoor floor lamp. These should tell you whether the product allows for RGB colour change and whether it can be operated by remote control, app or switch.
Are there outdoor floor lamps with solar or rechargeable batteries?
Numerous outdoor floor lamps are powered by an integrated rechargeable battery instead of a cable. This is charged via solar power or USB cable, depending on the product.
As a rule, battery-operated outdoor floor lamps provide up to 8 hours of light. This is made possible by the energy-efficient LED lighting technology, which minimises battery consumption.
Please check the item details before purchasing to determine how the lamp is powered.
Are outdoor floor lamps dimmable?
Many outdoor floor lamps have an integrated multi-level or step-less dimmer, which allows the brightness to be conveniently adjusted by a switch or remote control.
Thanks to diffusers, the floor lamps are glare-free even at the highest brightness level - perfect for lighting a balcony, terrace or garden.
World-famous designer brands, like Artemide, Foscarini and Anglepoise, have outdoor lamps in their range. These striking outdoor floor lamps not only provide cosy light, but they’re also real prestige objects that enhance the look and feel of your property.
In addition to private homes, designer outdoor lamps, like the Twiggy Grid by Foscarini and the Tolomeo by Artemide, are often used by hotels and restaurants with outdoor seating areas.
