The role of a terrace

The terrace serves as the architectural link between the interior of the home and its external parts. If you want to enjoy late summer nights in the open on the terrace, artificial light is essential. Terrace lights can help create an inviting environment to stay outside on balmy summer evenings

Enhance architectural features of the terrace

Beautiful and well-thought-out lighting can give an aesthetic touch to the terrace and plays an important role in terms of creating the right atmosphere and mood. Therefore, when decorating the terrace, the focus should not only be on the floors, plants and furniture but also on the lighting.
Lighting is most effective when used intentionally to enhance design elements or architectural features of the terrace. Light has the ability to reinforce the geometries and complexities of the architecture.

Beautiful lighting design for terrace

Generally, outdoor spaces such as the terrace, requires less light than indoor spaces. That means, that the overall lighting of the terrace can be more dramatic rather than focused on tasks. This also means that low, warmly toned lighting levels are preferred.
However, any lighting design should always consist of three main components: ambient, task, and accent lights. Layering light concepts is preferred since it is the most natural way to experience light, which is a mix of dark and light.

Terrace lighting provides security

Terrace house lighting is not only a matter of creating a pleasant and inviting atmosphere to the space, but also a matter of providing a respective level of security. Illuminating accesses and entrances as well as paths, will make the terrace more accessible and secure. For instance, portable lamps can help users navigate back and forth.
