4 of our Favourite Awning and Pergola Lighting Ideas

Awning and pergola lighting ideas


Purchasing a pergola or an awning is only the first step to creating a cosy outside area for your customers to enjoy. Once you have the structure in place, you need to create the environment, and choosing the right lighting goes a long way to help. We've put together a collection of our 4 favourite awning and pergola lighting ideas to help you find the right lighting for your outside area. From LED lighting strips to firepits, discover our ideas below. 


1. LED Lighting Strips

LED lighting strips can be built into the metal structure of our aluminium pergolas and awnings. You can opt to integrate them into the louvres and around the edges of the structure. The LED lighting strips are remote operated, and can be set to a rainbow of colours. From warm white to neon pink, you have the power to pick the mood. 


2. Coloured Bulbs 

Fun and quirky, string lights take an outside area from cold to cosy with a flick of a switch. In the image featured above, the client has opted to decorate their pergola with a string of coloured light bulbs that emit a subtle, coloured glow. Opt to hang the lights from the ceiling or weave them in and out of a fencing structure.

3. Firepits 

Firepits are a great way to create a cosy atmosphere. Many of our clients opt to build a firepit underneath their pergola, creating a warm area in which to enjoy drinks all year round. Combine your firepit with some outdoor fairy lights and you'll have customers booking your outdoor space weeks in advance.

4. Globe lamps

Globe lamps are another quirky lighting idea, adopted here by our client The NED luxury hotel in London.  Installed so they weave in and out of the pergola roof structure, globe lamps create a warm glow while giving a modern touch to your outside area - perfect for urban and country settings.
