At Butler Lighting we are your outdoor lighting in Greensboro leader, and we wanted to share some of our expertise with you. Last blog post we covered the logic and thought process you need to successfully light your outdoor spaces. This time we wanted to take some time to discuss three vital types of lighting to really pull whatever outdoor space you’re working on together. If used correctly, these lighting fixtures will not only provide adequate lighting, but they’ll give a sense of aesthetic beauty which can’t be beat.
Here are three of the most important outdoor lighting fixtures you can have:
Three must-have outdoor lighting fixtures
Close to ceiling or hanging outdoor lights
Ceiling mounts are designed to be attached to the ceilings of any outdoor space. Strategically placed on porches, gazebos, or entryways, these lights add great aesthetic value to any outdoor space.
Another great thing about ceiling lights if you have a variety of options to choose from. You can mix and match lights that hang with lights that sit flush to the ceiling for a varied look from space to space.
Landscape lighting is pretty self-explanatory. Use this type of lighting to bring your landscaping features to life when it’s dark. You can use it to highlight a garden area, a particular landscaping sculpture, an outdoor pathway, or even a garden gnome — though we usually recommend against this. Use it to highlight some of the best features in your front yard.
Landscape lighting is also useful for lighting otherwise dark paths which other types of lights may not reach
Wall sconces are lighting fixtures which mount flush onto your walls. At Butler Lighting we carry a wide-range of sizes, shapes, colors, and styles, so you’re sure to find something you like. Most people choose to place their scones at their property’s front entrance, on its exterior walls, or near any outdoor stairways.
This lighting fixture is particularly useful for lighting the places that are prone to tripping and falling — exterior pathways, walkways or stairways. If placed properly — and you choose a fixture which has a style that matches the aesthetic of the area you are trying to light — it can add just the right touch of beauty as well.
