This or That: Path Lighting VS Focal Lighting

Deciding on the correct type of outdoor lighting for your property can be daunting. What does each type of lighting do? Will they meet your expectations and fulfill your goals? The experts at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Wilmington can help you understand your options and what will work best for your particular property and vision. This article will explore the differences between path and focal lighting.

Wilmington Path Lighting

When it comes to path lighting, it is pretty self-explanatory. These lights are meant to light up a walkway so you can see every step of the way when it is dark outside. This type of lighting has a mushroom cap and casts the lighting all around the area, as opposed to shining directly on one point. Path lighting can give you peace of mind for security and ensure that anyone walking on the path at your property day or night can see where they are going and avoid a mishap. If you have gorgeous landscaping around your pathway, these lights will ensure that beauty is visible even during the nighttime hours. How great will it be to keep your walkway safe AND show off your beautiful landscaping?

Wilmington Focal Lighting

As with path lighting, focal lighting explains itself quite well. This particular type of lighting has the purpose of accentuating pieces of your property. What do you desire to show off in your yard? Could it be some gorgeous trees, a sculpture, your flower garden, or simply the side of your home? Focal lighting has a narrow beam that will amplify the visual appeal of the item it is focused on. However, focal lighting can also be used indirectly, for instance, by shining up the edge of a wall to create a wall wash effect. The options are nearly endless, and our team would love to give you a free demonstration.
