Entrance pathways need to be wide enough to make you feel welcomed. As you navigate back to the villa, the pathway could be winding or straight. Larger the villa, the bigger the pathway in proportion as it would be more comfortable to walk on.

Straight lined pathways make walking easy. The pathway width needs to be a minimum of 1.1 mtrs. 1.5 to 2.5 mtr pathways in larger villas make it easier to walk on. Lighting on pathways make them interesting.

13 Tips For Your Villa Pathways In Dubai

 

1. Pathway Dubai: Add water features along the way

Long pathways that are made in a straight line can be a bit boring at times. There are many ways in which this can be changed.

Adding some type of a water feature makes the walk interesting. E.g. A beautiful pond, a raised level, seats and a wall made of riveting material. A long 15 meter pathway needs a break in design to make it appealing. A break could be given by raising the level. Step lights could also be inserted in the raised level riser to give increased visibility.

2. Pathway Dubai: Addition of wooden structures

Long pathways could be enhanced by a pergola or a wooden structure. These give a very alluring break to the pathway.

3. Pathway Dubai: Adding decorative tiling

Making the tiling decorative breaks up the monotony. Use grass, stones, design patterns to make a visual difference to the pathway.

4. Pathway Dubai: Staggered and winding pathways

It is possible to design pathways that are staggered in height, sloped or winding. Keep in mind the simplicity of the pattern, ease of walking and the difficulty of executing your plans.

Providing ramps for the older people to walk easily rather than climbing a step may be a good idea. Ramps also make it easy to take heavy equipment and trolleys.

A geometric patterned pathway with grass and plants around it could be also very refreshing. In this pathway on the right, beige natural sandstone has been used.

5. Pathway Dubai: Stepping stone pathways

Stepping stone pathways can be made from many different materials. E.g. Wooden logs, concrete paves.

Other materials are Travertine marble antique brushed and finished, all colors of flamed granite, porcelain tiles, ceramic terracotta tiles, concrete blocks, cobbled stones, large pieces of sandstone cut from slabs, different types of slates, and wooden decks.

6. Pathway Dubai: Recessed ground light

Lighting your pathway is the most important part of the design. Thinking about what lights you could use, designing your levels in the garden with the correct use of lighting, thinking about how well your garden will be lit and how  you can make it easy to walk on are some very important aspects.

You can use step lights, ground pathway lights, wall lights, bollard lights, wall step lights and LED strip lighting that is concealed.

Garden lights can enhance pathways in a very dramatic way.

7. Pathway Dubai: Down lights

Similar to ambient light indoors, area light is general floodlighting that washes larger spaces in a soft glow. Use it on sections of lawn, hedges, patios or conversation corners. Then approach the lighting of your driveways, walkways and steps as task lighting, which provides both safety and beauty.

Look at path lighting the same way. Position a series of down lights on alternating sides of your pathway or steps to ensure light spreads horizontally in muted pools. The best bets are safe and affordable low wattage fixtures that are less than two feet high.

Planned wisely, lighting brings depth and dimension to your yard. Creates romantic outdoor dining nooks, turning ordinary plants into art and adding drama to your home’s exterior architecture.

Much of its beauty, however, is its ability to stretch time. A summer yard that’s illuminated properly and beautifully encourages lingering long past one’s usual bedtime.

8. Pathway Dubai: Bollard lights

Bollard lights illuminate sidewalks, backyards, and pathways to your front door. Lighting pathways helps prevent stubbed barefoot toes in the summer and creates a welcoming atmosphere. Path lights are popular with those who would like to add some light at night without flooding their yard or their neighbor’s home.

Path lights can easily be stuck into the ground on either side of a path. They come in a variety of styles making it easy to find lights to match the decor of your home.

9. Pathway Dubai: Deck Lights

Nothing kills a party like a guest falling down the stair of your deck! Deck lighting prevents accidents like this from occurring while you are hosting a pool party or a backyard barbecue. Deck lights are either attached or embedded to the posts of your deck and light footpaths and steps.

These small lights give off a warm glow without blinding you. They are perfect for creating a romantic atmosphere for a dinner party.

Recessed in-ground fittings provide side way lighting onto paths and decks.

Reminiscent of gas post lights of time gone by, today’s post lighting is meant to provide visual interest to your front or backyard. Post lighting can usually be found near a gate or pathway leading to the front door of a home.

11. Pathway Dubai: Recessed wall light

Recessed wall lights provide glare free lighting onto pathways and steps. They are generally 20 w, 12 v lamps and require transformers.
These lights enhance the wall and provide down light to pathways and steps.

12. Pathway Dubai: In ground recessed light 

A compact, drive-over, in-ground recessed light fixture ideal for lighting pathways and driveways. Light is emitted from 1, 2, 3, 6 or 28 apertures in the raised aluminum trim, creating light patterns at ground level. This light is available in three sizes to meet the scale of application.

13. Pathway Dubai: Pathway step lights

This is absolutely essential as it lights up the steps making your garden safe, ambient and well lit.
Attractive low-voltage recessed accent lights are ideal for enhancing your deck, pool, pathways, walls and stairs.
