Any outdoor setting, no matter how large or small, benefits from proper lighting. In fact, the perfectly placed outdoor wall lighting can transform the darkest of settings. Modern lighting can lift a drab and small outdoor area, while large areas can go to town with all the modern lighting options out in the market place. Outdoor flood lights are one popular option, as is outdoor wall lighting. These variations allow you to set the tone and mood for the right area.
Accent Lighting - As its name suggests, accent lighting is used to accent (or highlight) features of interest and should be brighter than any ambient illumination. In a lot of spaces, it is used to add drama to a room, which, in turn, adds a sense of increased appeal. Wall lights used as accent lighting are commonly fitted with dark or opaque shades, as this forces the light to spread out from above and below the fixture, creating an attractive hourglass shape and dramatic shadows. Wall lights are commonly used to draw the eye to artworks, plants and even architectural elements.
In most rooms it is advisable to use multiple light sources in order to create the right feel. Interior designers often refer to these multiple sources as layers of light. These start with general ambient lighting, with task lighting and/or accent lighting adding additional layers. Let's explain this in more detail. Ambient lighting is the general illumination of the space. Natural sunlight provides good ambient lighting during the day, but ceiling or wall lights are usually used for ambient lighting when the sunlight has faded.
