Exterior Lighting Adds Home Safety and Curb Appeal

03B90977Exterior lighting is a simple and inexpensive way to add gorgeous curb appeal as well as security to your home. To create a dynamic impact for your home, there are few more cost-effective options than lighting. A simple spotlight can accent your landscaping and showcase your home’s façade, while flood lighting can provide additional safety.

There are many different styles and options to complement the style of your house and your needs:

Path Lights – Lights along the walkway to your home can help ensure a safe walk for you and your guests. Consider a solar path that will turn on as the sun goes down. This will prevent you from having to remember to turn them on when you leave your home as well as conserve energy. 

Well Lights & Spotlights – Well lights and spotlights can be installed around homes and in yards to light flowers, shrubs, trees and décor. Consider weather-sealed lights to ensure long-lasting beauty. 

Post Lights – Post lighting is great for creating ambiance or atmosphere for outdoor parties. Excellent around patios or pools, post lighting can add flare to your home as well as welcome visitors. 

Deck Lighting – Installing lights to your deck can help to light stairs and railings for safety. These lights are flush mounted and can be walked on without incurring damage.

Floodlights – Floodlights allow you to light a stairway, garage or entry for security. Most have motion sensors, which could help deter intruders. Position LED floodlights 9 feet from the ground or higher so that they cast a wide light and aren’t accessible without a ladder.

DIY stores are full of excellent options for creating great nighttime ambiance for your home, and many will offer classes or videos to help you install these lights yourself. Alternatively, a landscape architect will be able to provide excellent insight into light placement. Call me if you need a good recommendation, as I work with some terrific people who would be happy to help.
