Not all outdoor garden lighting consists of ground and decking lights, there is much more to add colour to your homes. Want to light flower beds, trees or even jacuzzi’s and pools? Look no further than the Saxby range. LED lighting has certainly swept the market in 2016 and is taking it by storm, to add colour to lawns and flower beds we recommend the brand new Luminatra Spike Light. If you’re looking to light paths are driveways, take a look at the Saxby bollards range where we are confident you’ll find a stylish and affordable lighting solution for all homes.
There was a time where security lighting offered little else but a bulky unattractive unit. Since then designers have clubbed together to focus on aesthetics as well as performance, resulting in a handsome batch of security lights that share the ability to complement the home. Security lighting poses great benefits, especially in the dark winter months. They can aid visibility outside, save energy compared to conventional lighting and act as a deterrent to would-be thieves.
Here at Direct Trade Supplies we stock some of the latest and greatest models to hit the security lighting market. Brands include the likes of Timeguard, Steinel, Saxby Lighting, ESP and BG Electrical, all of which are household names within domestic lighting and security. To give you a greater understanding about what we can offer, here’s a little run down of some of our most popular and state-of-the-art models.

There’s one way that you can still include the garden into your wintery life and that’s by dressing it up with some gorgeous glowing lights. (more…)

Apologies to those of you north of the boarder, which really isn’t hard considering Plymouth is one of the most southern cities in the UK – but this blog is dedicated to our stomping ground, where Direct Trade Supplies was born and looks to thrive. Plymouth is an interesting location with a diverse set of terrains. You have the monster hills of St Judes and Lipson, the historic cobbled streets of the Barbican, the industrial horizon of the dockyard and the big green patch of Central Park. This coastal city has a lot going for it.
Although Plymouth is lucky to be surrounded by the sea and situated very close to Dartmoor there’s still room for improvement. Buildings in the town centre continue to sport an outdated 70s rebuild, the Staples building looks garishly out-of-sorts behind the archaic bombed-out Charles Church, the Drake Circus shopping mall seems like it tried to please eight different designers at once – resulting in a confused design, there’s also Union Street and Mutley Plain that could do with a thorough spruce up. Despite its flaws it’s still a desirable city to live in, especially for those that uproot from other cities and fall in love with the diverse nature and environs that surround the city.
You’ll have to bear with us on this one, the list is a little loose, compiled of landmarks that should embrace decorative lighting as well as areas that could benefit from general lights for security and safety purposes. We welcome any additional suggestions too! Just leave us a comment at the bottom of our blog page. For now let’s get cracking me’Janners. (more…)
