More and more people are spending more time in their outdoor living areas these days. Many houses now have outdoor kitchens, decks, patios, gardens and backyards where people can relax. In all these areas, the outdoor lighting plays an important role. Obviously, lighting is necessary during the night. It can also make your outdoor look more beautiful. Outdoor lighting design can set the mood of your outdoor living areas. For many people, they put outdoor fixtures up for practical purposes only. They do not usually consider the aesthetic value of a properly lit area. However, those who realized the importance of lights can put them to good use. They can definitely make their outdoor areas come alive with the help of well-chosen lights. Strategically placed lighting can highlight the beauty of your home and surroundings.
It is very important for all homeowners to ensure that they are modifying their outdoor lighting so that all fixtures and lights are in compliance with the measures in Lighting Dark Sky movements. This movement focuses on altering our outdoor lighting so that we limit the amount of glare and reflection from our high level lights off of the ground and up into the sky. There was a lot of initial debate about whether the orange overture in the sky was simply an annoyance to purists or whether it caused negative effects to the earth. Now we have learned that the light pollution which is at fault for the orange haze is actually destroying wildlife while also damaging our health and incurring large fees.
Walkway Lights: Walk way lights are downward pointing lights that attach to the walls surrounding a walkway. This will make sure that everyone is safe on stairs, garden bridges, or uneven paths. Many walkway lighting designs come with color options; not only for the decorative encasing of the bulb, but walkway lights can shine a slightly blue or pink hue. Imagine coordinating the color schemes of your outdoor rooms, patio umbrellas, and outdoor furniture cushions to the color of your lighting! If you want to use your outdoor lighting to keep your porch, gazebo, or outdoor living space lit up at night… walkway lights will probably not be enough. While they provide an important safety measure and can add some brilliant colors, you'll want to consider adding other kinds of outdoor lighting as well.
