There are several types of lamps available for use in low wattage outdoor lighting kits. LED, incandescent, low voltage fluorescent and halogen lamps all provide soft, non-glaring light. Halogen bulbs offer excellent color rendering, are highly efficient and typically last about 4000 hours. Low voltage fluorescent bulbs use little energy and are a good choice if the lights will be on for more than 4 hours at a time.
One of the places in your house that constantly need security lighting is the garage. Make sure this area is amply covered with lighting at night. For a small garage, a single light at the center of the entrance would suffice. But for a 2-car garage or bigger areas, you should install some more. The sides of your house also need proper illumination for a similar purpose. In addition, sensors in your lighting system in these areas are a good idea if you'd like to save energy. These sensors automatically activate your lighting system when programmed according to time or when motion is detected.
The color of your outdoor lights is one of the most important things. If you are just wanting to light up your driveway a white light might be fine. If however you want to create a real ambiance, then you want to choose a color that suits the theme of your home. Before choosing the color of your lights you might want to consider how they will make the outside of your home look. You will also want to check the color you choose online, or with a designer to make sure that it will work well with your home.
Your functional spaces outside your house like your barbecue and pool areas require an ample amount of lighting to avoid accidents and injuries. Swimming pools must have proper underwater lighting to ensure safety during your poolside parties and night swimming laps. Outdoor barbecue and kitchen areas should have task lighting fixtures, which are usually recessed spotlights or track lighting.
