Types of Lighting Designs
One of the most inexpensive and impactful elements that you can add to your property is outdoor lighting. Installing a successful outdoor lighting display takes thought and planning. The proper type or types of lighting installed on a property by Outdoor Lighting Perspectives, will enhance the beauty, appeal, and security of any property. Listed here are 5 different types of lighting designs that will benefit outdoor lighting applications.
1. OUTDOOR SPOTLIGHTS
This type of lighting is used primarily to highlight such things as business signs, flagpoles, or home decorations. These lights are normally hard wired into the home or business’ direct wiring. These spotlights can also be connected to a home or business by installing a separate line and switch for the lighting elements.
2. SOLAR POWERED LIGHTS
Solar powered lights are self-contained and house all of the components needed to operate at night without electrical power. Most units come with a small solar collector on each individual light. These types of lights offer freedom from the constraints of having to run electrical wires for lighting applications that are a distance from the electrical source on the property.
3. PATHWAY LIGHTS
This type of lighting can be installed with either the electrical or the solar powered application options. For pathways that are close to an electrical source, it may be convenient to use an electrical connecting system. For areas that are farther away from structures, the solar powered lighting is a perfect option.
4. DECK LIGHTS
When it comes to outdoor lighting, one of the benefits is the safety aspect. This is especially important when it comes to the lighting around such things as patios and decks. Having the proper lighting on steps and surrounding patios will reduce the likelihood of accidents due to tripping because of inadequate lighting. This type of lighting is not only a great safety measure, but it also lends to the beauty of the outdoor deck or patio.
5. ACCENT LIGHTING
For areas of the exterior of buildings that would benefit from ground lighting to accent such things as rock gardens, decorative shrubs and flowers, water features, or any other ground landscaping needs. This type of lighting is often also used to define the borders of flower gardens and landscape art.
