If you're thinking of cracking open the barbecue for some alfresco entertaining, the good-value Antler brushed stainless steel wall light with PIR (PS31.49, Screwfix) will light up your bangers and burgers in style Also available in black and without the PIR sensor (PS20.99, Screwfix), this is a stunning contemporary take on a traditional lantern light.
