How Outdoor Lighting Can Enhance Your Home

Around the holidays everyone is concerned with their exterior lighting, family is coming, the neighborhood will be lit up, but what about the rest of the year? Outdoor lighting is important year round, and while aesthetics play a large part, there are many other important reasons why you need to up your outdoor lighting game.

For starters lets talk security

You may already have an alarm system in place, but why not deter those intruders before they even make it to the back door? A huge part of effective home security is prevention, and outdoor lighting is a great way to make an unwanted guest think twice about breaking into your home. Floodlights for example, are a common preventative, and are most often motion triggered, and as the name suggests, when triggered they put off a flood of light. Any intruder will look like a deer in the “headlights” when they get caught on your lawn.

Safety

During the summer months especially, when you might be traversing your landscaping in the evening, it’s important to consider lighting pathways, areas near doors, and patio or deck stairs. When your yard and home walkways are properly lit there isn’t as great a risk of falling as there was when you were using your phones screen light to try and find the way. With new lighting options for stairs you can make your deck not only a beautiful nighttime gathering place, but also ensure that no one will hurt themselves taking the stairs.

Drama

If you’ve spent time and money on gorgeous landscaping than you’ll be amazed how impressive it will look in the evening with some well placed accent lights. Small LED lighting can highlight the landscaping and areas of your home that you’re most proud of. Why not show off the architecture of a great doorway, or highlight a well placed flower bed, get creative with outdoor lighting as a way to create drama around your favorite outdoor places.

Entertaining

Especially in the Spring and Summer months, you’ll be spending more time outdoors, grilling and spending time with family and friends. Outdoor lighting on and around your deck and patio make entertaining outdoors at you home an exceptional experience for everyone. Well placed lights on and around your deck will allow you to spend more time outside, enjoy your company longer, and make guests feel more comfortable.
