  • 5 Tips to Buy Great Outdoor Lighting at Home

    One of the essential things in decorating your home includes installing superb-looking outdoor lighting. As a matter of fact, outdoor lighting (also called landscape lighting) not only enhances the look of your home, but it adds life to a dark space. It is also used for safety purposes, for security and accessibility at night. Likewise, an outdoor space whether private or public with good lighting can be the perfect venue for social events and gatherings, as well as for recreation or sports.

    There are many things that need to be considered when lighting an outdoor space. Here are a few things you need to look into:

    1. Start by planning how you will use the space as well as the overall look you are going for. Once you’ve come up with a plan, visit your outdoor space at night with a flashlight and identify the different areas you want lighted. Of course, you want to avoid lighting the whole area out, so start by plotting outdoor lightings along the walkway, stairs and the main facade of the house. Safety is of the utmost importance so you want to make sure these areas are covered.

    2. Your next step would be to determine what type of outdoor lighting you will use. There are different types of outdoor lights which include path lights, flood lights, wall and ceiling lights, post lighting, walkway lights, deck lighting well and spot lights, among others.

    3. It is also important to consider what type of power source you will be using. You can choose from using electrical energy transmission systems, batteries, fuel cells, generators, alternators, and even solar power.

    4. Another factor to consider is the use of the proper fixture voltages when setting up your outdoor lighting. The use of improper fixture voltages shortens the life of your outdoor lights, prompting you to change your lights more often than needed. Take into consideration the variety of lighting fixtures available so that you don’t end up using more or less the same lights for your outdoor space.

    5. Also remember that outdoor lighting is not about merely lighting up a dark space. It helps create shadows and texture. The way you determine where your lights will be placed adds beauty to your landscape and at the same time helps illuminate the architectural features of your home. It is important to pick lighting designs that can be applied to your specific outdoor space. Consider as well purchasing lights that are energy-saving and ecologically friendly.

    All in all, your outdoor lighting should match the overall look of your space, and oftentimes, less is more. Don’t overdo with your lighting fixtures to avoid lighting up the whole space. The key is to determine which areas you’d like lighted and to use the proper lighting fixture that can accentuate or highlight that space. After carefully planning your outdoor space and determining what lights and power source to use, consult with a lighting design expert on how you can install your lights. An outdoor project is a big investment so make sure that you are also getting your money’s worth.

              LED light sources don’t have to be replaced very often, and because no standards have emerged for what they should be like, manufacturers have got used to building them into fittings, rather than designing new luminaires around replaceable ‘lamps’.
