We’re all familiar with the pale white glow of traditional outdoor lighting options, but what about the increasing popularity of lighting with other colors? Today, colored lighting isn’t just for celebrating holidays or special occasions. Using filters with outdoor lighting systems gives you the option of adding ambiance to different outdoor spaces, depending upon the mood you wish to create – no matter the time of year.
How do Colored Filters Work?
Lighting filters are thin sheets of plastic designed to be placed in front of a light source to change the color of white light to another to further customize your outdoor LED lights. They are known for helping produce visually stunning effects.
From subtle to bold, filters are available in a variety of colors to transform any area and give your property a modern update. Use colored filters to help set a mood, create an area of interest, highlight an architectural feature, or add a wash of color. Imagine changing the lighting colors around your water features or landscaping with a soft colored glow to create elegance and style. The options are endless!
Select Colors Based on the Latest Research… or Just for Fun!
- Ample research has been done to figure out what effects colors have on mood, circadian rhythms and sleep, alertness for vehicle drivers or employees, and much more. For example, blue light may increase alertness, while red is associated with feelings of love, warmth, and comfort.
- Not interested in using colors for practical reasons? Maybe you simply aspire to turn your outdoors into a purple dungeon on Halloween, or light up the garage red, white, and blue on July 4th. Or, maybe what you have in mind is centered more on an elegant year-round look to beautify your home and garden.
- Whatever your vision, colored filters can help you craft an expressive nightscape you will be proud to show off!
Professionally Designed Lighting vs. DIY
DIY project ideas that try to replicate color filters can produce harsh or overly strong results, and often create an unreal look. Outdoor lighting is an art! If you feel over your head, consider talking to a professional lighting company. They will be able to advise you on the ins and outs of colored lighting options so that all your outdoor lighting blends cohesively – and aesthetically.
