Lighting plays a functional role in any outdoor space. Although there are many decorative outdoor lighting options, it is key to consider practicality. Besides safety, it is also important to think about the look and feel you wish to create. Here are the different types of outdoor lighting options that are perfect for any size space.
String lights are one of the most common outdoor lighting options when it comes to apartments and condos. Because they are portable, string lights can be used on a railing, hung over an outdoor living or dining area, on pergolas or trellises, in trees or bushes, or anywhere else you see fit. String lights are an affordable option and replacement bulbs are relatively easy to find.
Path lighting is ideal for creating safe walkways and paths leading to and from the house. They are powered by solar panels or electricity and create a soft light for visibility purposes.
Spotlights and floodlights are used to highlight key features in a yard such as a water fountains or statues. Spotlights generally offer a narrow beam, whereas floodlights offer a wide beam. Both lighting styles add drama to an outdoor space.
Another important type of outdoor lighting for safety purposes. Stair lights illuminate each stair, so users can see clearly in the dark.
The front and back entryway of a home requires ample lighting for safety purposes. Options for outdoor entryway lights include decorative pendants and chandeliers, sconce lighting, and recessed lighting. Front entryway lights also light up the house number for potential family, friends, and guests.
Outdoor lighting styles depend on the type of outdoor lighting being used. Up lighting, silhouetting, shadowing, grazing, moon lighting, and washing are the most used lighting styles.
