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 The kerosene lantern of the 19th century has largely been replaced by modern fueled lanterns and battery operated fluorescent lamp models.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.
Some of us are old enough to remember when lanterns were the primary(only) source of light, especially in rural areas before electricity was widely available. The lantern lit the way to the barn and down the path to that special little out house. A lantern can be classed as any portable lighting device used to light large areas. Lanterns are used in signaling, and widely used for camping.
You can have wall mounted lights if these are close to the house, but the patio umbrella lights are also a good idea. You can also have special tall light posts near these. If you want some of the decorations in your yard to be lighted then you can use the well lights.
When you are planning your outdoor lantern lighting you should first consider how to shine more light on your outdoor room with less electricity. Particularly with outdoor lantern lighting it is important to verify the best possible angles from which to mount your outdoor lantern lighting. With this information you can determine the number of lights that you need, which outdoor lantern lighting system works best for your home, and where they should be mounted.
