There are two basic functions of outdoor lighting. First, outdoor lighting allows areas to be well-lit, making them safe and functional for homeowners and their guests. This is the most practical use of outdoor lighting, as these lights make it possible to have late night grilling, bonfires and get-togethers. Outdoor lighting can also light up driveways and walkways, making it safe for visitors or coming home late. For warm summer nights, outdoor lighting can provide a soft glow for swimmers or those who are fishing off a dock.
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.
Ceiling fixtures are attractive for the outdoors and come with fashionable designs. Usually you will find them made out of nickel or brass or other high quality metallic finishes. Watch out for energy costs with exterior ceiling fixtures because they tend to be kept on for many hours. So, again, check out what the potential energy costs are before choosing any ceiling lights.
