Outdoor LED task lighting is essential in your lighting plan, especially if you have an outdoor kitchen, bar, or grilling area. Task lighting provides a gentle but concentrated light source, so you can easily see while you work. That means that many of the tasks you might have done inside can – with the right lighting – now be performed outside.
Outdoor Task Lighting for Cooking Alfresco
During summer BBQs and parties, you will most likely be cooking outside in your kitchen or on your grill. Outdoor LED task lighting is necessary above cooking surfaces, so you can make sure that your favorite cut of meat is cooked. Task lighting eliminates the guesswork, so you won’t have to take the meat off the grill and run it inside to make sure it’s cooked through.
Outdoor task lighting is also commonly used above food preparation areas. The focused light ensures that you have enough illumination to use sinks, counter space, and cutting boards (and much more!) without straining your eyes in the dark.
Outdoor LED Task Lighting Gives a Warm Glow
LED lighting produces a warm glow that sets an ambiance. Overhead or lights under cabinets are used to enhance work specific areas, improving visibility in areas that overhead lights cannot reach.
Professionally installed LED outdoor task lighting can be positioned aesthetically and unobtrusively, so your outdoor space is beautiful but still functional.
Other Uses for Outdoor Task Lighting
While task lighting is most commonly used in outdoor kitchen areas, consider some other locations that benefit from a focused light source.
Eating or dining areas of course benefit from good lighting. Your guests and family will thank you when they can see the beautiful meal you prepared, lit by gently focused light.
Recreational activities deserve task lighting too! Imagine a soft pool of light over your favorite outside reading nook. Or light up the porch table to invite a leisurely after-dinner game of cards.
Swimming pools need lighting not just in and around the pool itself, but also on poolside-decks, changing areas, and storage spots for pool toys and equipment.
Do you enjoy gardening in the cool of the evening? Task lighting can be used to illuminate your work table, hose or water pump, or a specific planting area. If you employ a landscaping service, they will appreciate the ability to see their work areas and safely navigate obstacles.
Creating more functional work areas
Outdoor buildings, garages, tool sheds, and workbenches are another obvious choice for task lighting. If you are lucky enough to have someone in your family who enjoys woodworking, puttering in the garage, working on cars, or fixing things around the house after dark, task lighting above working surfaces in these areas is a must!
