Summer Brings Outdoor Living To Homeowners, Even At Night
With beautiful summers hitting Australia, scorching temperatures may affect outdoor living and activities during the day. However, this summer, locals are set to take to outdoor fun and relaxation during the night. And to do this, outdoor lighting is a must.
Landscape lighting and ceiling fans with lights add to the star-lit atmosphere, creating an inviting and chill-worthy ambience during those balmy summer nights. When installed with aesthetics in mind, landscape lighting can also highlight the textures and colours of your flowers, foliage, statues, and feature pieces.
Landscape lighting also increases property value, as it boosts outdoor security too by eliminating hiding places and warding off unwanted guests. This is especially true when you choose spotlights in addition to aesthetic lighting.
Before Actually Installing Outdoor Ceiling Fans, Consider Fan And Landscape Lighting Design
Landscaping lighting is more than just purchasing a light and popping it wherever. And if you’re adding a ceiling fan into the mix, it definitely requires more thought. For a beautiful, well-lit outdoor space, lighting layout design must include ceiling fan lighting and landscape lighting – and how they work together. For those with no landscape lighting or ceiling fan, starting off on a clean design slate is best.
First off, consider where your lit ceiling fan will go. Is it by the patio on the roof of a covered structure like a courtyardl within your outdoor space? Once the perfect place has been decided, consider how the light from the ceiling fan illuminates the nearby surrounds. Considered task lighting, ceiling fan lighting works well as the main source of illumination – especially if it has an interesting shade that throws unique shadows. Then, consider landscape lighting for either ambient or accent lighting. Outdoors, under the night skies, are always enjoyed with ambient lighting and accent lighting strategically placed around the landscape. Hanging lights, post lights, string lights, and wall lights, as well as spotlights, can accentuate your landscape if placed in complementary locations according to the ceiling fan light.
Following the later considerations, the ceiling fan and its lights become the focal point. Then ambience is added alongside natural accentuations with different outdoor lights positioned according to the ceiling fan. This choice of lighting and its placement is effective in translating the language of lighting and expressing your taste and desires for your outdoor space.
