Nowadays, outdoor activities have become the first choice for people to relax, especially outdoor camping. After a busy week, an outdoor camping trip with your family during the weekend can certainly clear up the fatigue of the week. The most important thing in outdoor camping is the lighting. So what kind of camping lights do you need when camping outdoors? What are the best outdoor camping lights?
What is The Difference Between Indoor And Outdoor Light?
We all know that the indoor environment will be more stable, except for some specific places: such as the kitchen, bathroom. Other environments we don't need to think much about waterproofing.
Outdoor environments, on the other hand, are different because you can hardly predict when your outdoor lights will need to withstand sudden showers or downpours or unexpected sleet or snow. Therefore, outdoor lights need to have a higher waterproof rating.
Should Outdoor Camping Lights Be Warm Or Cool?
Whether you should use warm or cool light for outdoor lighting will vary according to personal preference and lighting usage. With a color temperature greater than 5300k and a spectrum close to daylight, emitting a bluish-white light that mimics daylight, cool lighting is more for practicality and safety reasons. White light won't provide much ambiance, but will show off important features of your property at night. Warm light has a color temperature of 3300k or less, and its appearance ranges from orange to yellowish-white, and less intense lighting will create a warm, relaxing atmosphere in your outdoor living space. Warm white lighting is therefore popular with camping enthusiasts as it creates an inviting, intimate atmosphere for when you're camping outdoors with friends and family.
