If you’re considering adding out patio lights to your Fort Worth and Surrounding Areas home, there are several varieties to choose from. In this article, NTX Outdoor Lighting looks at the different varieties of patio lights available to enhance your outdoor space.
Wall lanterns and sconces enhance a home’s curb appeal and landscaping by providing a source of indirect lighting. Try using dimmable LED-powered wall sconces in pairs over an outdoor patio.
Landscape lighting showcases plants, trees, shrubs, and flowers. Small spotlights and well lights (which require digging a hole so that the light will sit flush with the ground) are common for landscape lighting as they do not compete with plants for attention. Landscape lights can also be used to highlight architectural features like columns.
Pendants or hanging lanterns are usually used to illuminate the front door and enhance curb appeal or a porch. Pendant lights add an interesting design element and provide task lighting as well. They are available in a wide variety of materials, colors, and styles to add a dose of charm to an outdoor living space or front entry.
Ceiling lights also known as outdoor flush mount fixtures work well in an entryway, porch, patio or overhang. Usually hung above a door or patio dining table, ceiling lights come in the form of pendants, which offer a dramatic look, and flush-mounts, which are best for low ceilings.
Offering maximum safety and security, flood lights cast light across a wide area, discouraging intruders and making the yard well-lit for nighttime outdoor fun. Place flood lights about 9 feet high so that they cannot be easily accessed. Mounting flood lights up high also assures a wide field of light.
