Outdoor lighting in a home is more than illuminating the space all around it. It is a decorative element that brings aesthetics to your exterior and much more. Take stock of the different types of outdoor lighting and everything you need to know about its installation.
The different types of outdoor lighting
There are different types of outdoor lighting that can be installed in a yard.
Exterior wall lighting
Exterior wall lighting is the type of lighting that is attached to the facades and exterior walls of homes. It is often installed at entrances such as doors or gate to illuminate these areas.
The lighting bollard
This is an elongated tube-shaped outdoor lighting system that attaches to the ground or is planted into the lawn using its stake-shaped end. It never goes alone, but works in groups of several bollards to illuminate a particular aisle or area. The light from the bollard is directed towards the ground and is wide.
Recessed exterior lighting
The trend is now towards LED bulbs and outdoor lighting is no exception. Recessed spots are elements that bring real aesthetics and modernity to your exterior while being discreet.
Who says green energy necessarily means solar energy. It is increasingly common to see solar lights used as outdoor lighting. The reasons are multiple: an unlimited source of power (the sun) and a considerable saving on electricity consumption.
Solar lighting can be found both on wall lamps or on terminal lights. Usually, a small voltaic panel and a battery built into the device make the whole thing self-sufficient.
The different uses of outdoor lighting
In order to showcase your garden and the decorative elements of your yard, there is nothing like outdoor lighting. You can use recessed lights, bollard lights or solar lights to highlight specific areas of your garden.
If you have a main driveway in your backyard or a garden path that leads to the pool or a cottage, you can install outdoor lighting throughout that area. So you can use a lamppost, bollards, but also recessed lights to illuminate your aisles.
Safety comes first, combine utility with pleasure by installing outdoor lighting around the perimeter of your home. You can associate the lamps with a motion detection system that turns on at the slightest suspicious movement. This will have an effective deterrent effect on potential intruders.
Lighting for a terrace
Your terrace is a suitable place to receive guests and spend excellent evenings with friends or family. To do this, you must install suitable lighting that will illuminate your entire patio. Recessed spots are a very popular trend for the modernity they bring.
Lighting for a swimming pool
Finally, the lighting of a swimming pool and spa are points to be particularly taken into account. Specific safety measures must be taken when installing these devices, since the circuit is located near a body of water. Nevertheless, in the hands of competent professionals, you will obtain a perfectly illuminated, aesthetic and safe pool and spa where you can play there all evening.
