Considerations for Walkway Lighting
When considering which type and style of pathway lighting will be the best for your yard, the first thing to consider is nature. The pathway lighting you choose should match the rest of your yard; the lighting should appear as though it belongs with the yard, the lights should have a natural look to them. The style of your home should also have an influence on the pathway lighting that you choose; after all, the outdoor lighting fixtures should be inspired by the architecture of your home. Premier Outdoor Lighting has many different styles to choose from, so take advantage of the large selection. For instance, if the exterior of your home is Victorian style, we have numerous lighting options that will appeal to the more traditional styles of homes.
One of the things that will help you choose which type of lighting you should use for the pathways is the type of material the fixture is made of. For example, pathway lighting fixtures made from bronze are a popular trend for both contemporary style and traditional style homes. It’s important to choose a material that is designed to withstand all types of weather conditions, such as titanium, both of which are popular and made to withstand the elements.
Choosing the Best Type
Lighting for pathways is generally either made to be low-to-the ground fixtures that will cast light onto the path or sidewalk, but doesn’t shine anywhere else in your yard. The different types of pathway lighting to consider may include:
- Spread lighting, which is a technique that is typically used for pathway lighting. This style produces a nice lighting effect and will light up a wide area, such as the full or large portion of the pathway.
- Step lighting is used to accent steps, such as steps leading up to the porch or off of a pathway. These lighting fixtures may be recessed into the step risers, underneath the railings and/or as surface lights on vertical posts.
- Lampposts are often used for homeowners that prefer to place only one fixture along the pathway instead of several in-ground lights. Lampposts produce a subtle illumination and can be used individually or with one on either side of the pathway.
