In addition to playing with gas porch light, we include small romantic fire flames with candles or burners … You’ll see how many solutions there are for your favorite corner! Everything depends on it. If it is a point well travel by you or yours. Or if it is within reach of street and you want to provide an extra security. Then I recommend you first place a motion sensor that makes it light when feeling any presence. This will scare away unwanted visitors and give you more comfort.
Now, general or occasional gas porch light? It will depend on if you usually use that space for meetings or if it is a place of more intimate enjoyment, for you and little else. In first case you will need a general, preferably superior, illumination so that everyone can see and be seen. And transit is safe taking advantage of all space. But if it is your private corner for personal use. With some indirect lights and imagination it will be much more attractive and cozy.
That said, general gas porch light will apply-when necessary by dimensions or use-through ceiling or wall panels, creating a more distributed light. A great idea may be to place switches that allow us to regulate light. To adjust it to needs and environment of each moment. To guide our steps and not stumble during night, we can also place sconces on steps, curbs or ledges.
