Chrome fixtures are great because they can be added as a simple lighting afterthought or they can be integrated into a well-thought out, outdoor lighting system plan. They offer the same outdoor lighting you require with a greater longevity. The chrome materials used in these outdoor decorative lighting fixtures are hard wearing and simple to clean. They offer a better lifespan than alternative lighting materials. They also offer a more creative and decorative appearance in your yard, raising the value of your home.
One of my favorite outdoor decor pieces is bamboo water spouts. A beutifuly designed Japanese bamboo water fountain like a Shishi Odoshi (Deer Scarer) bamboo fountain creates zen-like back yard. A perfect compliment to a Shishi Odoshi fountain is a tea stand and fragrant Asian herbs.
It is also important to ensure that your lighting fixtures enhance the appearance of the other features of your yard with the proper amount of light. Chrome features are best suited for large porches or decks, or driveways because they offer powerful lighting that covers a full spectrum. It is important that if you are using chrome lighting that you do not buy too many fixtures and create an unnecessary glare. It is best to start with one and determine how much of your exterior area that single light is capable of illuminating so that you can then verify how many more fixtures will be needed to light any surrounding exterior areas. Balancing the necessary amount of light is important. If you are using the chrome lighting features to light an entire outdoor patio used for entertaining purposes, then you need to ensure that there is enough light to avoid eye strain and headaches, but not so much that you create a glare and severe light pollution.
If your outdoor area is a bit sunny and planting trees around it for shade may take some time, you can try putting up a shade instead. All you need is a canopy. Put it up and you get instant shade that immediately makes your area a great place to hang out.
As, stated before, we all know things that are outdoor wear different from what we have indoors.
The internet is obviously a good tool in locating products that we want and need in decorating and designing an outdoor living space.
