You may think landscaping should take precedence when planning out the exterior of your home. However, you can’t forget about the lighting that can help to highlight all of the amazing features of your home and its landscaping. When you fully understand the advantages of outdoor lighting, you will be able to choose the perfect lights to fit your home’s needs! The experts at Farryn Electric have come up with four ways your home and its landscaping will benefit from adding exterior lighting.
Pros of Installing Landscape Lighting
The most obvious advantage of adding exterior lighting to your home is the enhancement of appearance it brings. The right lighting can accentuate your home’s beauty even after the sun goes down. You can even angle the lights to show off all of the hard work you put into your landscaping! Your home instantly becomes more inviting and gains major curb appeal just with the installation of outdoor lights.
Family, friends and any other visitors will be able to see (and stay on) the walkways of your home thanks to landscape lighting. The added visibility can decrease the risk of injury on your property! From cracked sidewalks to uneven paths, the strategic illumination can further highlight the areas to avoid when making their way into your home, so all visitors will make it safely inside.
A dark home can easily become the target of vandalism and burglary. In contrast, a well-lit home draws attention, making it easier to catch a thief in the act than if the house was dark. With less darkness surrounding your home, it becomes difficult for a potential intruder to remain hidden around your home. Just be sure to place lights close to entryways, so when you are arriving home in the dark, or looking outside your windows, you can see if there is anyone lurking around your property.
By adding lights to the exterior of your home, you can expand the capabilities of your living space—the fun doesn’t have to end when the sun goes down! The addition of lighting on your porch or deck can allow more time outside to enjoy the springtime breeze or relax with family after a long day. With outdoor lighting you can really take advantage of all of your outdoor living spaces!
The addition of landscape lighting can completely alter the appeal of your home. In fact, exterior lighting ranks among one of the top characteristics for home buyers in NAHB’s annual survey of what home buyers are really interested in!
