Summer is coming up fast, and now is the perfect time to customize your outdoor residential or commercial space with LED lights!
With so many LED options available, it’s easy to create the perfect lighting combination for your space that combines style, safety and security. Innovative LED technology is fully customizable and can be tailored to suit any space with a wide array of features and fixtures.
Outdoor lighting design starts with you
Before engaging the services of a lighting specialist, it helps to start the process on your own by asking yourself the following questions:
• What is the primary purpose of the space?
• Are there many pathways that require light during night hours?
• Are there any entrance areas that are entirely dark and in need of security?
• Does the space have any unique architectural details that disappear when the sun goes down?
• Are there any employees that require reliable bright light to do their job?
Answering these questions will help determine your lighting requirements. This is valuable when the time comes to discuss your options with a specialist who will then take your ideas and transform them into a lighting arrangement that combines both form and function.
Types of Outdoor LED Lighting
Creating the right lighting arrangement combines different lighting sizes, fixture shapes and locations. The general categories to consider before beginning the process include:
Ambient or general lighting illuminates entire areas. Commercial and residential outdoor areas use large lights placed on walls to provide a uniform lighting level over an entire space such as a patio, pathway or atrium.
Ambient lighting can also form part of a security system that ensures that every area is kept safe at all hours of the night.
Accent lighting uses fixtures such as sconces, pendants and ground lights to highlight special areas of the space such as gardens, fountains and architectural elements. Besides adding unique design elements to a space, accent lighting ensures safety for recessed areas, pathways, stairways and walkways by eliminating shadows that may cause trips and falls.
Task lighting provides light to workers at reception desks, bars and other work areas. Standard task lighting options include under-the-counter lights, pendant lamps, track lighting, desk lamps and floor lamps. Along with ensuring that employees have adequate light to perform their work with accuracy, task lighting is essential to many workers operating equipment at outdoor venues such as restaurants and bars.
