The Most Common Questions about Outdoor Lamps
What is the better choice: outdoor lamps for positioning or hanging?
In general, outdoor lamps that are adjustable will also provide the necessary light just as well as the hanging models. As a rule, however, the latter are, for example, very popular for the porch area. This means that there is sufficient light to avoid any stairs. Since the lamps are hung up, they do not get in the way, when entrances are slightly smaller. Outside lamps that can be positioned can be found at entrances, cooking areas or similar surfaces, with a lot of space. A third possibility is external lamps, which can be inserted into the ground. So they line the path with light and create a lovely optic.
What is better: an outdoor lamp with, or without, solar power?
This question depends upon your specific needs. If you need a reliable source of light, then you better opt for an outdoor lamp without solar. These models are operated, for example, by means of a battery or via the household current. If, on the other hand, you are looking for an environmentally friendly lamp that does not need to provide constant light, then an outdoor lamp with solar power is certainly the right choice.
Do I have to mount my new outdoor lamp?
There is a wide range available. In general, there are lamps that need to be fixed. However, there are also a large number of lamps which do not require a fixed installation. The specific product descriptions instruct you on the best installation method.
How bright should my outdoor lamp be?
An outdoor lamp for stairs, the home entrance or similar should be quite bright. This way, you will not run the risk of hurting yourself, nor will you have to search for your key in the dark for hours. Mood lighting is ideal for the terrace, the balcony or the garden. This creates a wonderful, cozy atmosphere that is inviting for both you and your guests.
Are outdoor lamps weatherproof?
Since an external lamp is exposed to all weather, the models are usually weatherproof. This way, cold, heat or rainfall, should not affect your lamp.
