If safety is a concern then you should consider installing security lighting. You should keep it as far away from your living area as possible so it doesn't create a distraction. Task lighting should be used for specific functions like grilling or walking. Accent lighting is focused lighting that can be used to make a certain feature stand out, like an outdoor statue or other lawn object.
The first thing you need to consider when developing an outdoor lighting scheme is safety. The pathways and the doorways need to be properly illuminated in order to prevent any unexpected stumbles. Properly lit entrance ways including any back alleys that might border your property also increase your level of personal safety. A good rule of thumb is to have at least 60-80 watts of light at every outside door, set of outside steps, or any other place that you might want to go to at night ie alleys or garbage bin areas.
Once you've dealt with the color of the lighting arrangement, it is important to notice the appearance and shape. The lights should be exactly corresponding to the interiors of your home and in doing so utmost care must be taken in choosing the correct size. These days, markets have been flooded with a variety of lights, ranging from modern outdoor lights, deck lights, security lights to outdoor chandeliers. It is important however, to choose from a select range of lights that fit in your budget well and at the same time work fine for your home. Consulting an interior decorator always works to your benefit. So before you go ahead with transforming your idea into action, it is important to seek an advice from him/her for that lifetime investment. In the end, too much or too little of any lighting experience can badly impact your home.
