When it comes to deck lighting, there are some cool new LED options out there. You could also have some post lighting needs around your deck or entertaining area. We have already explained how to light post lights. The main areas you want to light on decks are the steps and edges of the deck. Small puck size lights can be used for these areas. They do not flood the area with light but will insure that no one gets hurt if they are walking across your deck in the evening hours.
Outdoor lighting design can set the mood of your outdoor living areas. For many people, they put outdoor fixtures up for practical purposes only. They do not usually consider the aesthetic value of a properly lit area. However, those who realized the importance of lights can put them to good use. They can definitely make their outdoor areas come alive with the help of well-chosen lights. Strategically placed lighting can highlight the beauty of your home and surroundings.
For instance, if you want lights in your garden, get green colored LED ones to match the overall theme. A lot of people put these green colored lights in the garden as it gives a very natural effect. On the other hand, if standard white lights are used for this purpose, they harm the plants by depositing heat fumes and mercury traces. Apart from gardens, these lights are also used for various other home purposes.
Some light fixtures consume a lot of energy. You could use low wattage bulbs. Then again, leaving them on until the wee hours of dawn is still one way to waste energy. We do not need to have these typical outdoor lighting problems. Instead of using ordinary outdoor lights, one can opt to buy motion sensor outdoor lighting fixtures.
