Have your eye on a beautiful glass outdoor wall lighting fixture but live in a place where dust, wind, or rain are part of your outdoor vocabulary? You may want to consider a more enclosed outdoor lighting fixture. The good news is that there's a scale to help you figure out how waterproof/dustproof a given outdoor lighting fixture is. This rating is call an "IP Code", which stands for "Ingress Protection", and is essentially a rating of how protected the wall light is from external elements like rain and dust. There's separate scales for both dust and water, but for rain protection, you'll probably want a water rating of at least 3-4 on the scale.
Then I reach the isle with the lamp shades. I see a shade that is $15 and would look great with the new design of my room. So an easy and cheap way to upgrade is to change shades. A few things to keep in mind is the hardware on your old lamp. Some shades (usually smaller) fit over the bulb. But most table lamps have a bracket that surrounds the bulb and goes to a point were a bolt is extended at the top. The shade will have an eyelet at the top that will slide over the lamp bolt and a decorative nut secures it to the lamp.
The only drawback with solar-powered lights is that in shady areas of the garden they may not get enough sun light to charge them, so you need to place them in spots where they will get adequate light for the charging process.
When you think about lamps, you may automatically think of them as the lamps that are made of the same type of shape. Moroccan lamps are not like this. You can find all sorts of unique shapes when it comes to these lamps. Some of them are curved while others are a few feet tall. They can be used in various areas of the home including the outdoors.
