Searchlight Lighting

Lighting has many uses. We can use it to illuminate the darkness, we can use it to create a sense of warmth on the coldest of days and we can use it for our own security and peace of mind. We’ve come a long way from Thomas Edison’s first lightbulb which debuted in 1879. When most people hear the term ‘searchlight’, they might immediately think of 20th Century Fox’s iconic logo, or the quintessential lighthouse beam. When we hear it, we think about incredibly well-made lights from one of the... Read More

Rustic Lighting

Lighting, like fashion or food, comes in cyclical trends. The current ‘must have’ item one year. can easily be replaced the next. That’s not a bad thing. We all move with the ebb and flow of what we like and we decorate, and redecorate, our homes and ourselves to illustrate these changes over and over again. When it comes to interior design, terms like ‘shabby-chic’ and ‘rustic’ can mean different things to different people. Here at Castlegate Lights, rustic means a range of stylish, well-crafted and an incredibly popular range... Read More

Novelty / Children’s Lighting

Christmas might have just left us so you could be forgiven for thinking that Santa brought the children enough to keep them busy long into the new year. We like to think we know our customers (and kids in general) well enough to realise it’s a never-ending treadmill of giving and receiving. For a company that sells incredible children and novelty lights like us, we couldn’t be happier. For the most part, lighting throughout the rest of the home serves a singular purpose. It helps us light the darkness for... Read More

With Christmas now a faded memory, Spring is often the season to start again fresh. The decorations come down, the festive clutter goes back in its boxes for another year and, up and down the country, homes are clearing the decks ready for the new year. There’s something very therapeutic about starting a new year with a clean slate. You may be looking at your decoration-free home and thinking you want to go one step further with your early spring clean. Perhaps some of your ornaments are showing their age.... Read More

WI-FI Lighting

Nothing says ‘Christmas’ like tinsel, mince pies and more lighting wires than you can shake a festive stick at. Putting up your Christmas lights can mean untangling a sea of cables and, even once you’ve done that, finding a place to put the controller often means it gets lost and you’re stuck with the same lighting patterns day in, day out. Now we’re deep into the 21st century, that just seems so old-fashioned. What you need is Wi-Fi enabled lights! The internet has given us many modern benefits to help... Read More

Konstsmide Lighting

Lighting is an important aspect of Christmas that often gets overlooked. When we think ‘Christmas’, we might think about the presents, the dinner or the tree, but all of those things are enhanced by lighting. Whether it comes from naked light through candles or the electric variety we’ve come to rely on. Either way, Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without something to light up the darkness. For us, only one name really comes to mind when we think about Christmas lighting, and that’s Konstsmide. Konstsmide’s range of traditional, modern and even... Read More

Acrylic Christmas Lighting

When we think about Christmas lights, we tend to think about candles or fairy lights on the tree. In recent years, even fibre-optic lights have begun to encroach on this traditional duo. Technology has given us many things and this includes lights. There are now so many different variations of the way lights are lit, but also in the materials we can use to make them. Acrylic has given us a range of lights that may never have been possible without it. Acrylic is a coverall term for products that... Read More

Living Room Lighting

Other than perhaps the bedroom, the living room is probably the room in the home that we spend the most time in.

There’s no better way to do that than with some sumptuous lighting that can set the mood, regardless of what you’re doing in there.
