Proper Outdoor Lighting- How to go
Gone are the days when a simple lantern or bulb was used to illuminate exteriors. These days outdoor lighting is given equal importance as indoor lighting. Various fancy lamps and lanterns are now available for this purpose and apart from making the ambience look more beautiful and decorative; these lights also help pedestrians in the night by erasing the darkness.
For the purpose of electric outdoor lighting, certain pre-requisites are to be maintained. It is necessary to consult an electrician to make the electric line ready. It is necessary to get them water proofed to avoid any hazards and accident. Moreover, it is mandatory to chalk out a plan of installation. Finally, before setting up the lanterns and lamps, certain factors must be considered like voltage, water lines and so on.
Some other factors that need to be considered for lighting include:
• It is always advisable to select such lighting fixtures that require short wirings. An electrical specialist shall be able to guide in this matter.
• It is a good decision to opt for copper lighting fixtures, as these are most suitable for exterior lighting. Copper ages with times and develops an antique look that enhances its beauty. Moreover, copper is more endurable than any other metal and can withstand any natural adversity.
• Another important thing to consider while opting for exterior lighting is the place of installation. The lighting fixtures should not be clustered around one place; rather they should be uniformly distributed. Lamps and lanterns can be installed in front of the gateways, along the pavements and walkways, around the pool, in patios and gardens and so on.
Thus, outdoor lights can be used for a variety of purposes and in garden, a hub of parties and get together of friends and families. However, the above-mentioned guidelines should be abided by.
