Often, outdoor post lanterns are desired for aesthetic purposes or accent lighting. If so, you may want to make sure it highlights focal points in your landscaping, providing a dramatic touch to outdoor seating areas, fountains or even statues. If the goal is to imitate moonlight or you want an ambient glow, you may choose a fixture with muted windowpanes or opaque panels. Solar lights are excellent choices for this type of lighting, as they offer a more natural glow, are inexpensive to maintain, and friendly to the environment. Sensors on the light figures turn on at dusk and off at dawn, but in order for them to recharge correctly, they must be placed in an area that will get a lot of sunlight for most effective use.
Homeowners who want to include a new outdoor lighting system should first make a list of what they wish to achieve through their lighting system. One thing to consider is whether or not you want to have lantern lighting at all times, or only when it is needed. If you only want it when needed then the aforementioned options of an infra-red system or a motion detector system are the best methods. You should also determine whether you want to create a specific atmosphere in your garden, around a seating area, on a porch, or a deck. There are limitless effects that can be created with the right outdoor lantern lighting system and lighting layers.
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 The kerosene lantern of the 19th century has largely been replaced by modern fueled lanterns and battery operated fluorescent lamp models.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 style of the outdoor lighting should be as natural as possible to complement the design of the whole space. Go for models with gentler yet organic designs in warm earthly colors such as brown and green. The rustic lights in the form of lanterns with mock wooden frames are ideal for every yard.
When considering outdoor post lanterns for your home, the first thing you want to ask yourself is, what are you lighting? This will help determine the size of your outdoor post lanterns and whether you want the beams to face up, down or spread out for maximum lighting coverage. It will also help narrow your choices if you are trying to match other lighting or home design features such as fences, outdoor furniture, or nearby structures.
