Outdoor flush mount light – The terrace should not be seen as a mere extension of the habitat. It’s a place in itself where you have to feel good. And who must not forget to be warm. If the lighting is too pronounced, we run to disaster. Indeed, a cold and mineral brightness gives an austere atmosphere in which the guests will not feel comfortable. It avoids all sources of light too dazzling as projectors or neon lights. We ban direct and white light in favor of a soft, dim and indirect lighting. And especially we avoid dazzling its guests around the dining table by favoring wall sconces. As much as possible, it is better to multiply the light sources to create a cozy atmosphere. Without overloading the space and saturating the electrical installation. Than to minimize the luminaries by choosing more powerful ones.
If you do not have to light your terrace too much, you must not light it too much. It is therefore important to check the number of lumens need depending on the area of the terrace but also the loss of light. For example, if the outdoor space is close or has a blind or awning. The light will be stronger than if the terrace is locate outdoors. One trick is to choose fixtures made of glass or a perforated material since they diffuse the light well. Beyond pure use lighting such as the dining or reading area. It is important to create a unique atmosphere on a terrace. For this, do not neglect the mood lighting. The latter provides additional brightness. It is not necessary in terms of light but can completely transform the atmosphere that emerges from an outdoor area.
Some ideas for mood lighting: hanging colorful paper lanterns, hanging lanterns around the terrace. Hanging a light garland in a tree branch, or subtly lighting up shrubs or flowers using LED spots. Or torches hidden in the foliage. The more we highlight the specificities of its terrace, the more it will be embellished. On the one hand, this diversity makes it possible to establish a real atmosphere according to the style of the lighting and the furniture. On the other hand the space will be only better enlightened, and finally there will be much less chances of get tired. Because it will be enough to replace one lamp with another. For small budgets, we think aesthetic before thinking price. And we do not hesitate to ask for quotes before committing. It is also important not to skimp on the quality of the lighting.
