LEDs offer lower power consumption than incandescent bulbs, and substantially higher light emission. However, because individual LEDs are very small, you need quite a few of them to equal the amount of light emitted from conventional lights. With that being said, there are many different styles of outdoor lighting that use LEDs.
From enclosed courtyards, city centre balconies to tree covered vistas, it’s easier than you think to create a cosy corner or the ultimate party space. The trick is to keep it simple. Layer your lights to frame your area and introduce a warm glow. Hang festoons and Chinese lanterns high, place garden lanterns on the floor and wrap fairy lights around your trellis and trees. Textiles soften up the space instantly, a few soft blankets and cushions and your new alfresco living room is complete!
And talking of ’moonlight’, it’s possible to attain this ’cool light’ effect by using LED white bulbs of 4100 kelvins or more. These have a ’blue’ tinge to them whereas for a ’warm, cosy’ light you’d be looking at using 2700 kelvins, with their ’yellowish’ tinge. Warm bulbs in the form of downlighting has been attached to the underside of the top wooden fencing of the following decking railing to ’wash’ the boards with light. At the same time it guides the visitor towards the decking area.
It would be amazing if we could spend more time out there in the late evening after the day cools off, but right now it is just pitch black out there. (Which is nice if you are star gazing, but not so much if you are trying to hang out and have a conversation.) So it is definitely time we come up with a few outdoor lighting ideas to brighten up the backyard in the evening.
