Most of the actual lights are LED types, providing cool white or warm white lighting combined with lower power consumption. In terms of fixture style, you’ll find recessed spotlights, traditional spotlights, industrial-style string lights, decking lights that affix directly to the wood of your deck, and many others, as well.
Buy lighting fixtures which are hooded so that you can be directional with the light and avoid ’washing’ over an unnecessarily large area. Get three lights and circle them around the tree, rather than have them all illuminating the front. Note too that placing uplighters in trees also adds more of a sense of height to a space.
Contemporary garden lighting is distinct from rustic and traditional lighting. It tends to be sleek and modern, although some styles do hark back to previous decades. You’ll find a number of different elements common with contemporary lighting. Stainless steel housings are very popular today, because they offer outstanding durability and weather resistance, while providing a clean, modern look. Bronze is also popular, as are aluminium and glass.
With warmer weather comes time spent outside. But to spend time outside you need to be able to see what you’re doing. During the day, the sun provides all the light you need, but when the sun goes down, other sources of light are necessary. Here are 8 outdoor lighting ideas to help you create the perfect nighttime entertaining space.
