Whether it’s for curb appeal or safety, outdoor lighting is the perfect way to create a cozy atmosphere, highlight your home’s architecture and landscape, make paths more visible, or deter trespassers. Here are 3 quick outdoor illumination tips for your home’s exterior!
Deck/Porch/Rail Lighting: Step and deck lighting adds safety and security to your stairs and entertainment area. We prefer AZEK and Trex composite decking products. Both have illuminated rail and deck systems. (Interested in building a composite deck – we can help you with that!) For inexpensive deck ambiance – purchase or make your own creative patio lighting. Simple Mason jars and twinkle lights can transform your backyard into a magical space!
Landscape Lighting: Highlight the focal points throughout your gardens. Uplighting on a tree, sculpture or water feature will enhance the overall beauty of your home. Spotlights or directional beams of light are a beautiful way to illuminate a prized specimen or architectural feature on your home or in your landscape.
Path Lighting: Illuminating your walkway is the perfect way to highlight both low growing plants and pathway pavers or stepping stones. With an extensive collection of light style available online or at your local hardware store, there are products for every budget!
Whether you hire a professional or do it yourself – outdoor lighting adds tons of curb appeal and enhances your landscape! Check out our Landscape Pinterest Board for more ideas!
