The outdoor light is useful for not only improving on the aesthetics of the home and garden, but also to keep it safe and secure.

No matter the size of the patio, balcony or garden, there are a wide range of lights to instantly transform the space to make it that much more welcoming.

Here are a few of the most popular types and styles of the outdoor light:

Task

The task lights are a practical choice for installing at entrance points to front porches, sheds, garages, etc. They give a useful amount of illumination to make it that much easier to enter and leave a property.

One of the most attractive styles to install above the front door is the lantern wall light which has a very inviting and stylish look. Also, the flush fitting wall lights give similar illumination, but are more cost-effective and great for installing above the back or side doors.

Floodlights are a useful option to give a little extra illumination to the outside seating areas, steps, driveways and paths. Alternatively, the deck lights can help to mark out a pathway.

Accent

Accent lights are the best option to add a touch of drama and atmosphere to the garden. They are a nice way to highlight a water feature, sculpture, pond, certain plants or other focal points outside.

A single accent light placed under foliage or near a favorite feature gives a focused and intense beam, while a light placed either side of the feature creates the more flattering and soft effect.
