Accent Lights – As the name implies, these are used to accentuate or emphasize an area, object or certain focal point or feature of your garden. They come in a range of colors and can enhance the mood you wish to set. Having a garden or patio with nice furniture and surroundings can be made to look even more elegant simply by using accent lighting, since specific features can be brought to life at night. Most accent lights use halogen bulbs, although LED and solar powered options are rapidly becoming more popular. Low voltage and solar powered versions are energy efficient and can save you money. It's best to use small, subtle lamps that blend in during the day and set just the right tone after the sun goes down.
Lighting up your patio, porch, or deck means that you need the perfect outdoor fixture to match your decor. Finding the best outdoor lighting means that you maximize any of your benefits. This includes not over-lighting. It only takes a little light to illuminate your yard during the evening. Another way to maximize your benefits is to utilize timers or motion sensors in order to stay energy efficient, ensure your safety, and provide optimum security. It is important that you be considerate of your neighbors by using fixtures which are shielded and therefore focus your light downward instead of outward or upward. It is also beneficial to invest in outdoor LED lights to save on maintenance and energy bills. There are energy efficient garden lights and light accessories, path lights and accessories, as well as landscape lights and accessories.
Path Lights – Outdoor path lights, which represent an important aspect of outdoor lighting, are generally used to illuminate walkways, stairways or driveways. They help to enhance the ambiance and offer increased safety to otherwise dark areas. They come in low voltage, solar and LED forms and it's up to you to select the most appropriate type to complement your styles and preference. Ones which use LED bulbs are the most energy efficient. LED bulbs never need replacing and require no maintenance, and hence are a popular choice nowadays.
