Why We Love Outdoor Lighting and Patio Lights

Outdoor lighting transforms any exterior space into a welcoming retreat, perfect for evenings spent under the stars. From enhancing safety along pathways with bollard lights to creating ambiance with decorative outdoor chandeliers, modern outdoor lighting marries functionality with style. We adore how these fixtures extend the usability of outdoor areas, allowing for gatherings, relaxation, and safe movement after sunset. The innovation in design and the adaptability of these lights to various environmental conditions make them indispensable for any outdoor setting.

Outdoor Lighting Styles

Outdoor lighting styles encompass a diverse range of designs to complement any exterior aesthetic. Modern outdoor lighting brings sleek lines and minimalist designs to the forefront, perfect for contemporary spaces seeking a cutting-edge look. Traditional styles hark back to classic design elements, often incorporating lantern shapes and ornate details that add timeless elegance to any patio or garden. Industrial outdoor fixtures draw inspiration from old warehouses and factories, with barn lights and raw metal finishes contributing rugged charm to outdoor areas. Transitional outdoor lighting bridges the gap between traditional and contemporary, offering versatile fixtures that can adapt to a wide range of exterior decors. This blend of styles ensures that there's an outdoor lighting solution for every taste, from the understated to the ornate.

How to Select Outdoor Lighting and Patio Lights

Modern outdoor lighting can breathe new life into outdoor spaces by bringing function and style to patios, entryways, outdoor stairwells, pathways and the landscape beyond the home. Wall lighting, ceiling lighting, path lighting and landscape lighting all serve a distinct purpose, illuminating spaces for outdoor activities, gatherings, safety and security and highlighting landscape displays. The most important aspect of outdoor lighting fixtures is the location rating. Each fixture, regardless of type, will have either a damp or wet location rating if it is appropriate for outdoor use. A damp rating allows for the fixture to be in the same vicinity as moisture, such as by the front door or under a covered patio — any location where direct exposure to water cannot occur. A wet rating allows for direct exposure to water, meaning the fixture does not need to be protected or shielded from wet weather.

Outdoor lights vary greatly based on their intended purpose. For example, pathway lights and bollard lights are designed to provide bright light for safety rather than aesthetics. Similarly, an outdoor pendant light offers an atmospheric glow that’s not always suitable for high-traffic areas. Wall sconces work well as accent lighting to highlight an architectural feature, like a door or arched entryway.

When installing any type of outdoor lighting, it’s a good idea to keep the surrounding environment in mind. Dark sky fixtures are designed to provide you with plenty of light that doesn’t disturb your surroundings. Places like coastlines and waterfront properties are more prone to corrosion from salt and water damage. If you live in these areas, it’s a good idea to take extra precautions to ensure that your fixtures hold up well.

Types of Porch Lighting

There are several kinds of outdoor lights, each with distinct purposes. Wall lights provide an accent light on the side of a home or patio, can showcase hanging artwork or objects and can illuminate front and back doors to guide guests at night. Ceiling lights provide a main source of light from above, illuminating dining tables, game areas, seating areas and other social gathering space such as an outdoor kitchen. Landscape lighting brings safety and security when placed near paths and along steps and, when placed throughout the yard, highlight plant arrangements and displays.

Outdoor Wall Lights

Outdoor wall lights enhance the home’s aesthetics, bringing accent light to walls to guide the way along the side of the home or to bring attention to hanging artwork and nearby objects. Outdoor wall lights illuminate dark corners, brighten doorways and make the general appearance of a home welcoming and warm.

Sconces

Another term for wall lights, sconces encompass the majority of wall light designs, mounting directly to a wall to provide accent light.

Lanterns

A specific look of wall sconces, lanterns often offer a vintage appeal with clean metal lines and simple geometric enclosures with glass paneling.

Up/Down Lights

Up and down lights provide directional illumination, either up, down or both, that splays across the wall, creating interesting patterns that can accentuate and enhance nearby objects.

Barn Lights

Typically pointing down, barn lights provide a full glow from a wide shade. Many barn lights contain a lengthy neck that extends from the wall mount.

Outdoor Ceiling Lights

Ceiling lights encompass a number of lighting designs including chandeliers, pendants, flush and semi-flush mounts, linear suspensiosn and even ceiling fans with lights. These lights provide a full, downward glow designed to illuminate an outdoor dining table, game space or seating area. In the case of chandeliers or linear suspensions they can also make a statement and help establish the style of the décor outside the home.

Outdoor Flush & Semi-Flushmounts

Resting close to the ceiling, flush and semi-flush mounts provide a full glow or an accent glow to spaces with lower ceilings or limited space.

Outdoor Chandeliers

A stand-out and often statement-making piece, chandeliers bring luxury and glamour to the area, effectively lighting the surroundings while drawing attention and establishing the style or theme of the space.

Outdoor Pendant Lights

Often simple in design, pendant lights hang from above, providing a directional glow at the end of lengthy cords or bodies. These lights are effective as single units or in various arrangements and are often seen over kitchen islands or bars and counters.

Landscape Lights

Landscape lighting encompasses all forms of light away from the home. These can include lights along a pathway, out in the yard, by steps and stairways and even on posts illuminating spaces such as the corner of the property.

Path Lights

Bringing safety to the outdoors at night, path lights literally guide the way when placed along paths that traverse the yard or around the house. These lights are often small and stick into the ground on short stems, creating an ambient glow that may illuminate nearby arrangements but mainly light a pathway.

Post Lights

These lights announce the edge of a yard or the beginning of the property, often seen in the front yard near a driveway or along an entry path to the front door. These lights can resemble many styles including antique lanterns as they rest atop thick posts that mount into the ground.

Spot & Flood Lights

Designed for security and safety, spot and flood lights mount near the roof and shine downward, providing a wide and bright wash of light. These lights often contain motion detectors and can be adjusted to shine at particular locations.

Bollard Lights

Taller than path lights and shorter than post lights, bollard lights serve many the same purposes. They mount into the ground near paths and landscape displays to bring light and guide the way.

Deck & Step Lights

To help illuminate steps and stairs at night, deck and step lights often mount into surfaces as recessed lighting. Steps and decks become safer at night, ensuring no accidental steps from guests.

Other Considerations

When selecting outdoor lighting, several considerations should guide your choice to ensure functionality, durability, and aesthetic harmony. The environmental impact of your lighting is an important factor; opting for LED fixtures can provide energy efficiency and a longer lifespan, reducing both your carbon footprint and maintenance needs. Material durability is crucial, especially in harsh weather conditions or coastal areas prone to corrosion, so selecting materials that can withstand these challenges is key. Modern outdoor lights come equipped with smart features like motion sensors for enhanced security and compatibility with smart home systems for added convenience. Maintenance is another vital aspect, as fixtures that are easy to clean and maintain will continue to enhance your outdoor spaces without added hassle. Taking these considerations into account will help you choose outdoor lighting that not only meets your aesthetic and functional needs but also stands the test of time.
