Backyard Lighting – Economical Lighting
For many homeowners, making the backyard look good just doesn’t come naturally. Some go to great lengths and hire a designer to create a one of a kind outdoor space, but this can be impractical, not to mention an expensive venture. Others just place random items and lighting fixtures in their backyard, but this can make it look messy. Below are a few tips on how you can create a well-lit backyard without breaking the bank.
Use Eco-Friendly Lights If you really want to make the most of your lights, then switch to energy friendly bulbs. These are the new type of bulbs available in the market and you can find these almost anywhere these days, from the neighborhood hardware store to online shops. The best thing about these bulbs is that they use less power to create the same amount of light. For example, an LED bulb can produce the same light a 70 watt incandescent light bulb can but only consumes around 7 to 10 watts.
Make Sure the Bulbs are Outdoor Friendly Many people think that any bulb will work for outdoor lighting. However, you actually need to get a bulb that’s not that sensitive and can stand sudden temperature and humidity changes. Rain, sun and snow are things that you can’t really stop from damaging your light. Getting bulbs that are useable outdoors helps minimize the cost of maintenance. That way, you won’t have to constantly replace the bulbs outside because they keep on breaking.
Use Bright Cool Tones Choose bulbs that have bright cool tones to make the most of the light. These types of bulbs give out a nice, sharp and crisp light, perfect for lighting up an outdoor area. Try to get LED bulbs or any bulb that give a cool toned light. For comments and questions, feel free to contact our customer support hotline.
