Why Modern Outdoor Wall Lighting is Important
The application of wall lights inside the home plays an important role in bringing out your home’s design, so why stop there? While outdoor wall lights don't get quite the amount of attention that indoor wall sconces gets, there's a lot that can be done with modern outdoor wall lights when taking your home's exterior design into consideration.
Outdoor lighting is important for many reasons. Having proper lighting around your home is an essential part of creating a feeling of safety around your home. Also, lighting is helpful for your family and guests to find their way around your home. Design-wise, utilizing outdoor wall lights can highlight the important landscape and architectural features that are unable to be highlighted with ceiling lights. Also, you can create unique lighting schemes for your outdoor communal areas such as porches, balconies, or outdoor rooms.
How To Choose Outdoor Wall Lights + Sconces
The type of outdoor wall lighting you choose will depend on how you intend to use it for. If you are simply looking to provide a wealth of light in your backyard, look for floodlights or open-faced wall lights so that your lighting is unhindered. To accent your home's architecture, you may want to choose wall lights that emphasize directional lighting. These types of lights focus light upwards and/or downwards upon the wall they are installed in and help to pronounce space.
Depending on your energy costs, you may want to opt for either solar wall lights or motion-sensor wall lights. With solar wall lights, your outdoor wall lightings will power itself throughout the day, so that they can shine throughout the night, thus reducing your energy usage. Motion-sensor wall lights will only power on when they detect motion so that they are only using energy when you are actively using the space they are lighting up.
