How to illuminate a covered terrace? And an open one? What kind of lamps do we use? Which combination of luminaries is ideal for creating a good atmosphere? These are some of the questions that appear to us the moment we say goodbye to the winter and give way to the expected summer. Let’s enjoy our terrace!
The ideal way to illuminate a terrace is to do it by atmospheres. For this you must consider these tips:
– Protection Index of the luminaries must be 44. It is the recommended index for outdoor luminaries.
– We also recommend warm light (2700K). As this is a leisure area, to relax, rest, the ideal is a nice light that produces comfort.
– LEDs to encourage savings.
– Security, we must consider minimal lighting to prevent tripping.
Two types of terraces, two similar lightings
If we have an open terrace, the best combination is some recessed wall luminaries installed on the perimeter wall of the terrace. Thus, we will achieve a grazing light to the ground.
We will also put a standing structured Versus-type luminary to illuminate the table for lunches or dinners. It is also a decorative element as it has dual functionality, not just the lighting.
It would be interesting to complement previous illumination sources with a number of Garda Led type pickaxes to install possible flower planters. Thus we will have of the atmospheres well-lit.
If we have a covered terrace we will also use the recessed and the pickaxes. But in this case we will use an outdoor hanging lamp, to illuminate the area of the table directly. As we well know, a lamp is also a decorative element therefore we will be able to choose between a more classic or a more modern design.
