When it comes to outdoor lighting, there are many options to choose from. Choose the style that appeals to you and the look of your property. However, consider the context of your property, including the size and number of people who will be using the area at night. Lighting should be installed at a level that will not overpower the area.
Outdoor lighting can be connected to a circuit with a switch or switchless. You can also choose battery-operated or solar-powered lighting. Battery-operated lights are a safe and convenient option. Unlike extension cords and incandescent bulbs, battery-operated bulbs can last for several years. You can also choose to add battery-operated LED bulbs to the outdoor fixtures instead of using conventional light bulbs.
Another option is outdoor wall lighting, which uses low-voltage lighting that is moderately bright. This type of lighting is perfect for illuminating recessed areas and improving navigation. These lights can be installed on a wall, pergola, or stairway. They can also be placed around sunken seating areas and other low-lying areas.
The style and material of outdoor lighting should also be considered. If you live in a coastal area, you should choose solid bronze or brass Marine Grade lights. These will withstand salty weather and humidity better than other materials.
