When Lighting Your Drive Way, Outdoor Post Lighting Works Best
Outdoor post lighting is an important part for any home's exterior. This is a kind of down lighting for the source of light is from a pole above which is projected downward. Just imagine these tall and stately poles gracefully shedding light to your driveways, walkways, gardens, patios, garage, pool areas and other parts of your house. It's a good design rule of thumb to match finishes on other exterior fixtures like outdoor low profile fans, pendants and wall lights.
When installing exterior post lights, be sure that the pole is tall enough to provide clearance for the tallest vehicles to enter your driveway. It follows that the higher you place the light, the wider ground the brilliance of the light covers. Adjust the light up or down to get the angle you want. Twin light posts on each side of your door invite bugs to converge so place exterior post lighting a few feet away to alleviate this problem.The benefits of post mount lighting is well worth the investment. These lights are valuable when you live in an isolated and poorly-lit area. Post mount lights illuminate outdoor area, so you can go outdoors at night feeling secure.
Outdoor post mount lights come in many styles, sizes and materials including, iron, aluminum, copper and glass. You can opt for a dramatic or subdued, ornate or refined style. Whichever design you choose, take into consideration the overall style of your home and get an outdoor post light that fits in well.
