As important as the interior lighting, arrangement and organization of its elements are for everyday functioning, the external one is equally important. It has its protective purpose, although at the same time it allows the stay in the yard to be more pleasant, and the appearance of the house and garden more attractive.


The meaning of outdoor lighting is primarily reflected in the fact that it facilitates movement in the yard during the evening and night, especially because the paths are lit, for example, the entrance to the house, garage or gate, external stairs. In addition, if the outdoor space is harmoniously lit, we can spend time at night on our terrace or in the garden, have dinner, relax, hang out with friends or do something, which is certainly more pleasant than staying inside, especially during summer days. In addition to the light, with fragrant candles and flowers, in good company, of course, the atmosphere can really be fantastic.


The lighting of the yard also has a protective role: the outside light subtly tells that the hosts are present. When the space is lit, burglary occurs less often, ie. entry of unknown people into the property, which certainly makes us safer. Of particular help may be the light that comes on when approaching a person or animal, which is a direct signal. If we have cameras in addition to outdoor lighting, we will definitely feel safer.


Decorating the exterior is a special task and requires a lot of dedication and effort. Outdoor lighting greatly contributes to the appearance of houses and backyards, so that it is, in addition to being functional, also very decorative. Thus, for example, it illuminates windows and doors, ie certain segments on the facade, flower alleys and paths stand out, when these refined elements act very effectively in the dark. For that purpose, various yard lamps and lamps are used, which with their appearance and shape contribute to the aesthetics of the exterior, especially if they are tendentiously integrated with the facade and garden furniture in terms of style.


When choosing outdoor lighting, we should primarily be guided by where we would place a particular lamp, ie where we want to direct the light beam, and whether we need continuous lighting or one that will work on the sensor. In accordance with the position and purpose of the light, we choose outdoor chandeliers, lamps, various pendants, and very interesting lanterns that can stand on the ground. Lamps that are located along paths, pools, ponds or jardinieres are more suitable for the yard space. If we especially want to illuminate an element with intense light, spotlights are also suitable. Thus, outdoor lighting is basically divided into three types: floor, wall and ceiling, with many variations. Lamps are made of materials that are resistant to wind, water, corrosion, or different atmospheric conditions and their impact, ie. primarily made of metal, and in neutral colors – black, white, gray. Also, light bulbs can be used of different types, shades and intensities.


Whether we have a large yard or live in an apartment with a small terrace, outdoor lighting is always a good choice, even necessary, to make it easier to function while staying outside. Also, in that way, our space becomes more protected and more beautiful, and the atmosphere is more pleasant and warmer.
