Although the industry continues to bring more and more outdoor wall lighting to the marketplace, outdoor lighting will forever be on our wishlist. There will never be enough styles or configurations. Lighting’s popularity is not surprising as a design element—it seems the perfect vehicle to carry the colour and conversation (from our last post) of outdoor living.
Illumination serves to highlight areas of interest, but with today’s designs and colours, the lighting element can actually become the focal point. Design Contract will be looking for outdoor lighting at the show in 2017. Outdoor wall lighting is an integral part of any house exterior. They can provide light, enhance the architecture of the house and add comfort and warmth to the exterior of your house.
That is why it is not a surprise that there are so many outdoor wall lighting available on the market. They come in a variety of shapes and styles to suit any needs. And indeed, most homeowners will buy from 4 to 6 outdoor wall lights for their home. Another great thing about outdoor wall lights is that they are very easy to install. Within minutes you will have a beautiful and functional light without any extra cost!

The placement of the wall light is also very important. Depending on where you will install the light it will create a different effect at night. Usually, the outdoor lights are not super bright and their illumination radius is quite small. Keep in mind this when deciding where and how to place your outdoor wall light.
The light that hangs low to the ground will be great to illuminate the pathway or a walkway outside of the house. If you position your outdoor wall light high above the ground the result will be more subtle and spread out the light. This would be great in the general area or garden lighting that does not need much light. If you hang the light too close to the eye level you might blind people so try to avoid this altogether.
Design Contract had presented the newest trends these days of how to decorate the outdoor space with outdoor wall lights and ground lights. Make sure you provide plenty of light in areas that need it most. This includes all the entrances and pathways as well as staircases.
