We started to create our outdoor lighting scheme about 5 years ago. My spouse and I were charmed by the simplicity and beautiful effect or the outdoor lights of a French restaurant in our town. Since that time we have experimented with many different variations of outdoor lighting designs. Our scheme is a work in progress and it gets tweaked each year. Some years we use a lot of string lights while in other years we use spot lights and twinkly lights. We generally tend to stick to white lights although we sometimes use the odd colored spotlight to great success.
There are many different kinds of lights available for your outdoor area, so you may have to choose between fixed lighting or hanging, portable lighting, if you wish to change or move your outdoor areas. A great idea is to leave hanging lights near pathways and terraces. Once you have your lighting chosen, make sure you think about how it will affect your gardens. You need to look at the lighting brightness and colours, and match them with wall features, or garden plants. A great idea is to string fairy lights around a small pond, for added reflection of the light.
The purpose of outdoor wall lights are to make the exterior portion of your house light up so that its beauty is shown off. You can combine wall lights with outdoor wall sconces. Lighting up the exterior of your home is also effective for protecting you at nighttime against burglars.
