Lighting adds ambiance and warmth to any home. During the summer, having outdoor lighting will add curb appeal and value to your home, as well as promote security and safety. By using outdoor lighting in the following ways you will make your home an inviting and safe haven for your family and guests.
Highlight Your Home’s Features
- Outdoor lighting can help you highlight the aspects of your home that can boost its curb appeal. Consider adding lights to pathways, entryways, and around driveways. This will create clear lines into the entrance of your home and help prevent stumbling at night. It will also create parameters separating your yard from your neighbor’s. Outdoor lighting can also be used to highlight garden and patio areas. This creates an inviting space to entertain guests when you barbecue on summer nights. It also allows you to utilize this space no matter the time of day, and gives the kids a chance to still play in the yard even after dark. Outdoor lights act not only as visual aids in dark spaces, but also can add color and texture to your garden when placed next to vibrant flowers or water features.
Safety and Security
- Adding outdoor lights to your home will not only increase its curb appeal, but also increase security. This is especially important during the summer when you are away on vacation. Houses that are well-lit are less likely to attract burglars and decrease vandalism. Having a well-lit entryway will help you feel more secure getting home late at night, or having guests over who are new the area. Outdoor lighting also helps you navigate the outside of your home at night, preventing unnecessary falls.
