Lighting has always been an important part of interior decoration of a building. In early days, people used to illuminate their houses and work places with oil lamps but with the introduction of incandescent bulbs lighting has assumed greater importance in our everyday life. Lighting assumes its importance because of multifold advantages that come along with it. Outdoor lighting in places like patio, backyard or in a porch, creates a pleasant atmosphere to relax and enjoy, besides enhancing the appearance of the house significantly.
For this, right amount of luminosity is needed and specific systems like wall and patio lights that come in various beautiful designs and sizes can be installed. Excess of radiance can cause harm and discomfort instead of relaxation.
Patio lights can also act as a security system of your house if you don't have a guard or a burglar alarm placed at your place. Since these are sensitive to motion, a person entering your premises can be caught easily thus discouraging people to enter your premises without permission. These lights allow you to highlight the best parts of your garden and patio. They can be used to provide gentle radiance while you enjoy a get together with your friends or family.
Patio lights come in various shapes and designs. You can have a patio umbrella light which works as an umbrella during the daytime saving you from the sun and when the darkness sets in, you can just switch on the umbrella lights that can be either lamp type or string type. These patio lights give a heavenly feeling every time you put them on because they are dim and just luminous enough to drive away the darkness.
Patio string lights come in two variations namely the electric string and the solar string lights. Both these provide a gorgeous look to your patio and are extremely advantageous to use for gatherings in the summer season. An important feature of the patio string light is that even if a bulb of the string fuses, the other bulbs continue to remain lit and are extremely durable and long lasting. These lights come in various price tags starting from a modest $10 for a cheap string to $1000 for a beautiful permanent fixture one.
Light can define space, substance and style. Today lighting has assumed importance in decorating schemes and most architects make it a point to give this aspect the prime importance when designing spaces. Choosing wall lights for different rooms and different purposes is a very tedious task and often puzzles the most intricate person while choosing one.
Since there are so many varieties in wall lights like the spot, clamp, up lighters, pendants, fluorescent fixtures, the best method is to first decide the place where a fitting is to be installed and later decide the fitting required.
