Choosing the right colour temperature and lighting is as important for your outdoor spaces as it it for the indoor rooms of your house. Using colour temperature correctly will help maximise the features of your property and create relaxing, practical and welcoming areas of your home.
Warmer colour temperatures are more effectively used on solid structures with the effect of emphasising architecture and stating the physical look of a building, and cooler colour temperatures best mimic natural light so can be most effective when used as down lighting to illuminate shrubbery or flowerbeds.
Equally, varied colour temepratures can be used along paths, drives and outdoor decking. Warm lighting can create hospitable and welcoming spaces and cool white lighting or daylight white security lighting can help create safe and practical passageways.
Below are three examples from JCC Lighting’s Architectural Exterior lighting range. This range has a fully aligned colour temperature of 3000K to provide consistency in the style, finish and performance of its lighting.
Architectural Exterior is a varied range of outdoor lighting designed to look impressive and complimentary to your outdoor spaces. It features downlighting, wall lighting, linear lighting, spotlights and bollard lighting, with all products in the range engineered with die-cast alluminum and finished with high-quality anthracite.
