Lighting. Friday , September 21st , 2018 - 19:11:44 PM
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.
Solar lights come in a variety of styles: two or three tiered lamps, lanterns that hang from an ornamental rod, bollards (small, dome-shaped lights,) tiki torches, fence lights, post lights, small reflector-type flood lights and walk lights with star-patterned down lights. The average cost of a solar light can range from $2.50 to $5.00 depending on the size and whether it is metal or plastic. Most solar lights are LED's today and give a crisp white light that lasts longer than an ordinary incandescent bulb. Solar lights can last for two, three and sometimes four years-the rechargeable battery can easily be replaced when the light grows dim. Solar light provides an attractive accent light that can be used in any area of a yard or garden. Place them where they can be exposed to sunlight all day to get the best and longest illumination at night (usually eight to ten hours.) Solar lights can be purchased singly or in packs of six and ten.
Accent lighting is used as part of an interior design scheme to draw the eye to houseplants, paintings, sculptures and other prized possessions. To be effective, accent lighting requires at least three times as much light on the focal point as the general lighting surrounding it. Accent lighting is usually provided by recessed and track lighting or wall-mounted picture lights. The upward vertical ones are lights which light effect is created primarily by reflecting the beam in the ceiling. This system is often used to create a soft indirect effect. For this purpose you can use wall lamps and floor lamps.
