Outdoor lighting and indoor lighting have more in common than electricity.
Lighting brightens a space overall, highlights a specific area, or focuses on a particular spot.
- Just like lighting that’s inside a house, outdoor lighting helps define the extent of a space, makes navigating it easier and safer, and calls attention to something specific.
- Diffused outside uplight floods the space between the lighted windows to give an overall definition to the house.
- Light fixtures on both sides of the front door create a focal point, especially when combined with the uplighting that washes the entrance pillars.
- Downlights set off the boundaries of the entrance steps so no one trips.
Here the pergola support columns provide a natural boundary for the lighting. Both uplights and downlights are used to eliminate shadows. Then floodlights wash the rest of the house to create just enough light for the dining area.
By lighting both general and specific areas, you can expand the time you spend using outdoor living space.
