Creative Ways Outdoor Lighting Can Transform Your Home

Creative Ways Outdoor Lighting Can Transform Your Home

Are you making the most of your home's precious outdoor living space?

Often, we cultivate lavish gardens, build on decks and screened-in porches, but find we still spend more time inside once the sun goes down. A dinner party on the patio shuffles its way indoors; the swing set gets abandoned; the lawn becomes a no man’s zone. And it all comes down to one simple thing: the quality of your outdoor lighting.

Lighting plays a critical part in your home's nighttime curb appeal. If you want to see for yourself the difference that lighting can make, think about a house with an exterior that you admire. What do you notice? Is it the shiny red front door and tidy flower beds or the towering oak trees? Now, think about the same house at night. Does it still stand out? If you answered yes, the owners have likely taken advantage of the transformative magic of outdoor lighting. And you can, too.

Landscape lighting allows you to enjoy your investment at night. Path lights provide visibility and safety while highlighting a slate-lined trail. Spotlights bring out the beauty of statues and other ornamentation while also highlighting your home's unique architectural features, such as columns or dormers. Uplights can showcase the intricate crags of sturdy trees gathered in the lawn, while others illuminate trim bushes and colorful flowerbeds. With outdoor lighting, your outdoor space takes on new life after the sun goes down..

Outdoor lighting increases your home’s square footage for entertaining. If you find that your parties eventually wind down indoors with guests crowded around a table or television, it may be that your outdoor space isn’t as inviting as it could be. Lighting can change this. Well-lit decks turn ordinary dinner parties into al fresco dining experiences where the conversation flows. A patio adorned with the warm glow of string lights adds a special touch to a make-your-own smores soiree. Colorful in-ground pool lights provide a fun atmosphere, as well as extra visibility, inviting guests to linger longer. Setting the mood with outdoor lighting installations is a surefire way for you and your guests to get the most out of your outdoor living space.
