Outdoor lights are used primarily to illuminate. You can see them in dim places to ensure safety. This is mainly what the authorities and street lighting require for outdoor lighting.

Types and styles of Exterior Lighting for Decoration
String Lights, fairy lights, globe lights, designer lights.
String Lights are bulbs that have been connected at regular intervals using a low voltage power cable. There are two types of string lights: the ones with bulbs and those that have shades.
There are many options for fairy lights. You can choose between multi-colour or static action. There are no shades available, but some bulbs have distinctive flutes at the bulb neck. Because they are so small, fairy lights can be used both indoors and out. They are useful for decorating trees, lining up building features and creating free-standing features.
Globe lights are designed in the same fashion as fairy light but use larger bulbs. They can be attractive on their own and don’t need to cover with a shade. Globe lights are not intended to be used indoors unless it is necessary to decorate large areas of indoor space. Globe lights are often connected, making it easy to get just the right quantity for your project.
There are many sizes available for designer string lighting. These can either be a different shape of bulbs or have shades. String lighting is designed for children and adults. They can have a theme or not.
The Static, multifunction Rope light, also known by chasing lights, is a string made of small bulbs and encased inside a transparent flexible, waterproof tube. They have a similar effect and are easy to fix and modify for certain projects such as the construction of words and motif lighting.
Rope Motif Lights. Images or words may be printed on back-boards, or made freestanding. Motif lights may be used for greetings like “Happy Christmas”, advertising a company or promotion, or showing a shape or character. They come in many sizes, colours, and can be combined with multi-effects. Curtain and net Lighting
Curtain and Net Lighting
Curtain Lighting is similar as string lights. However the wire holding bulbs is dropped vertically to the top horizontal wire, and back up again at regular intervals. This creates curtains. They come in various lengths. Some run straight across the base, while some are angled or have a textured finish such as a scalloped- or ragged bottom.
Net Lighting is almost the same as string lighting, except that instead of being attached to one long string of bulbs, the bulbs are connected to an array of power wires. Nets come in many sizes, and can be either square or a diamond-shaped. They can also be placed outdoors over hedges, bushes or other features.
Fibre Tip Light – fluffy & effective
Fibre tip lighting has a very pretty quality. The light doesn’t shine through as much so you can only see the fibres. It’s lightweight, fluffy, flowing, and it makes you want touch it. It is composed of tiny bulbs, which are located at the ends, of soft nylon fibres. These move in the wind and move with it. They’re very beautiful and can provide some breathtaking effects.
Uplights can be used to highlight trees or patios as well as other features.
The ability to illuminate large areas with uplights is a great way to highlight features. They are excellent for commercial use. They are often used to highlight spectacular buildings’ facades, such as historical event venues. There are also smaller versions which have multiple uses. They can be placed under trees to provide light that casts beautiful wavering shadows. They can be connected to mains electric, but they’re best used for solar power.
Although they are quite different, the Walk Over Uplights for lighting up walkways and patios are exactly the same as uplighting. These are flush with your ground and can easily be walked over. They highlight the available floor space, not glaring in too much. They can be used as a way to add light and atmosphere to an area outside or inside.
