Walkways or paseos are commonly seen in private homes and commercial buildings. Those from your entrance till your house or those in your gardens, hotels, or any commercial areas, are the prime attraction. When you have a look at a long walkway, the paver designs catch your attention. The beautiful looking pavers look even charming when they are rightly illuminated. Highlighting these walkways, which are installed in between the landscaping designs is a much essential part of your garden or backyard. Walkway lighting is important in making the path visible at night. Apart from illuminating them, the lighting helps give the entire section an elegant look, and amplify exterior beauty. So, if you have not yet added lighting to the paseos, it's time to get it done soon. Wondering what are the options in outdoor lighting? Here are some ideas that will help you have your paseo illuminated in the best way.
Solar Lights
The solar fixtures are the simplest paver lighting designs. If your walkway gets enough sunlight and is not covered with trees, get the solar lights installed on poles at equal intervals. These do not need wiring as they get charged due to sunlight, and can be used in the evening. You can choose from designer light fixtures available in various materials. Also, the poles on which these are installed, come in various patterns. You can pick from straight poles, curved poles, tall or short ones, as per your choice.

Path Lights
Path lights are usually installed on both sides, which rightly illuminate the entire span of the paseo. Remember, while installing path lights, the distance between them should not be too less, as this can give your walk a runway look! Pathway lights can be parallel to each other or arranged in alternating patterns on each side, which can create a unique designer effect. The path lights are quite popularly used in landscape lighting. Path light fixtures come in various designs and sizes. If you are placing these at short intervals, go for small light fixtures, and add low voltage bulbs inside. Those in lovely designs and ultimate glass coverings would add a designer dimension to your exteriors.
Paver Light Kits
Another idea to revamp your paseo is, to buy the ready-made paver lighting kits. Those outdoor fixtures of commercial finish are one of the best options, if you want an elegant look for your paseo. These fit in the pavers, just like the bricks, and look classy. If you check out the recessed lighting pictures, you are sure to hit the stores and ask for the kits. With colorful and designer fixtures in recessed pattern, which stay at the ground level, you can turn the exteriors into a grand space. You can also drive or walk on most of these without damaging them. Most commonly installed along the borders, you can also opt for those fixtures, that can span the area between two borders on the entire walkway.
These were some ideas on picking the light fixtures for your walkway. Remember to check out the pictures and products available in the market for illumination of the walkways. The market is flooded with a wide variety of light fixtures, which are sure to confuse you. Pick the most suitable ones, and have them installed rightly to spruce up the walk. Have a gratifying experience while you walk on elegantly illuminated walkway!
