From the Inside, Out
The popularity of outdoor lighting is ever on the rise, as more quality products are brought to the market that emulate the experience of indoor living, and as indoor living spaces become ever more cramped. Outdoor living enriches the soul and proximity to nature increases one’s sense of calm and serenity. The circumstances introduced through the Covid-19 pandemic highlight the need for greater access to available public and private outdoor space.
One way of creating a smooth transition from indoor to outdoor living is to approach light illumination of these outdoor spaces in the same manner you would approach any interior environment, with consideration given to a layered approach of ambient, accent, and task lighting. Private outdoor space can range from terraces, balconies, gardens, yards, decks, porches and patios. Each will have its own unique properties, features and dimensions that designer lighting can accentuate.
