First thing you might need to figure out if you are thinking of lighting an outdoor part of your home is the reason why you are illuminating this area. Your reasons could include security, the need to have the place lighted for future entertaining uses or for ambiance purposes. You will also need to figure out how much light you will need this place to have.

The number of lights you install in an outdoor area may also depend on the size of the area that you will be lighting up.

Therefore many people opt to let the interior decor people do the ceiling lights for them and even though it is a little costly that way, it is the best option. However if you are of a savvy mind, you can still do your own lighting and bring it out beautifully just like the interior decor people.
