Adding a Traditional Touch To The Outdoors

Planning an Outdoor Renovation

Spring is upon us and baseball season is in full swing! With the weather creating a more comfortable and relaxing environment for entertainment and relaxation, some find their outdoor living spaces are in need of a facelift. In a recent survey from Houzz, nearly a thousand of those surveyed are planning or have completed renovations to their outdoor living spaces. Of those thousand, over 57% plan to upgrade their outdoor lighting.

Making the Change

When considering a change to the lighting in your outdoor living spaces, more and more homeowners are reaching out to lighting professionals for support. A professional lighting designer is able to provide both the creative and technical expertise required to bring your project to life. Great lighting can bring zen-like qualities to any setting. You can rediscover the perimeter of your property, make it fun to entertain and highlight points of interest. Perhaps you want to set a soft, romantic mood during the evening hours. Maybe you have a bench or a shadowy garden corner you need to illuminate for security reasons. A path leading through the garden may require landscape lighting to mark its boundaries.  A professional lighting designer can bring your creative ideas to life through their creative design abilities.

The Fundamentals of Lighting

Do you understand how different types of lighting can work together in your home? Ideally, you want to use a variety of lighting types to achieve a dazzling yet functional aesthetic. Here’s a quick rundown of the three basic types of lighting:

Ambient: Providing an area with overall illumination, this hidden source of lighting fills a room and produces a glow. Ideally it should blend into the surroundings. Ambient lighting can be achieved with chandeliers or wall-mounted fixtures.

Task: Pretty straightforward, this lighting provides light for a function such as reading or cooking. Task lighting can be provided through pendant, recessed or track lighting – or even a simple table lamp! The right kind of task lighting should prevent eye strain and be free of any glare.

Accent: The lighting helps draw the eye to specific fixtures or elements such as paintings or sculptures. It can also be used outdoors to highlight landscaping or unique architecture. Accent lighting can be provided by fixtures such as wall sconces or track lighting.
