Light quality and colour can dramatically change the appearance of a room so it is important to get this right. You wouldn't, for example, want bright white lighting in a bedroom, instead a soft warm white ambiance would be more suitable. When choosing a light bulb you first need to decide which colour temperature you require. Colour temperature is a measure of how warm or cool a colour appears. It is measured in Kelvin; the standard measurement for lighting output in addition to lumen output. Colour temperature is derived from the colour of light produced when carbon is heated. The Kelvin Scale ranges from extra warm white at 2,700k giving a warm yellow glow, to white at 3,500k, cool white at 4,000k and daylight colour at 6,500k which produces a white blue colour. LED, CFL and halogen energy savers are all available in a range of colour. Complaints have been made in the past about LED giving off a cool blue light but with the improvement in technology, as long as you buy a good quality LED this should not be a problem. It is then important to look at the colour rendering index (CRI) which shows to what extent the light will make an object appear its true colour. An incandescent bulb is rated at 100% because its light contains a full spectrum of colour. CFLs do not contain the full colour spectrum but a good quality triphosphor fluorescent rated between 80-90% will be sufficient for everyday use. Higher rated CFLs can be obtained but are usually only used by designers or artists and are less efficient. It is advisable not to buy a light bulb which scores below 80% on the CRI scale. Energy saving light bulbs have received a bad press at times because of the light they produce, but this has tended to be because many poor grade CFLs either brought from supermarkets or given out for free by energy companies have come onto the market.
At this stage it's very important to make sure that you are very familiar with every aspect of your garden, especially those parts that you hardly notice during the day. I recommend that you tour your garden a few times in the evening just as its getting dark and use a reasonable powerful portable light or torch to help decide about those garden features you might want to illuminate. As you go round the garden make a list of the types of lighting you will need in all the different areas of your garden. Don't just concentrate on the lighting that's going to create the "wow" factor. Your security and safety lighting is also important.
Out door lighting is not necessarily just for practicality. You can use it for both decoration or security purposes. A nice outside light in front of the home or office can not only look very good, it can also offer security. If the outdoor area is very large, such as a large garden in the family home, then flood lighting can be used, or strategically placed track lighting. If you are looking for a party feel then fairly lights are good, if you are looking for simple and practical then some ceiling lights or spot lights could work well.
