In order to determine your final choice of outdoor lighting pieces you have to decide on where they should be placed. It is best to light only the corners that will be used during the dark hours - the sitting spaces such as tables and chairs, benches and chaise lounge areas.
The use of the kerosene lantern declined after electricity became widely available and improvements to battery operated devices were made. Today, the kerosene lantern is largely a collectors item and is never lit. The kerosene lantern of the 19th century has largely been replaced by modern fueled lanterns and battery operated fluorescent lamp models. Because handling liquid fuel is dangerous, most modern lanterns use a small disposable steel cylinder to enclose the fuel and is simply disposed of when empty. This fuel is most likely propane. Of course, there are lanterns in use today that use kerosene, diesel and ethanol.
The good news is that the styles today are much more varied than they were in the days of David Copperfield. While old world styles are still very popular, modern designs have taken significant creative leaps, accommodating every home and garden scenario.
Conversely, if you are lighting a large area, you may consider a street lantern, with two or more individual fixtures for broad lighting and maximum security. You can easily convert your outdoor post lamp into a motion-detector light that will alert you to visitors, both welcomed and unwelcomed.
Just as there are limitless effects, there are limitless designs and styles. Your outdoor lighting can be an antique design, an ornate design, or a vintage design which seamlessly blends the frayed garden design that is created by your blossoming flowers, shrubs, and trees. An old world atmosphere can be created by integrating a vintage outdoor lantern lighting system, conducive to relaxation during any season. With modern outdoor lighting designs, your yard can be emphasized as a summer location for sun-bathing or an evening location for conversation by lamp-light.
