There are many reasons to consider outdoor lighting for your property, whether it’s for additional security, easier accessibility, highlighting focal points, or something else. No matter the reason you decide to add lighting to the exterior of your home, you have many options to choose from, but some will be more effective and aesthetically appealing than others.
Here are three outdoor lighting features to consider for your home.
- Floodlights: This type of outdoor lighting can be beneficial for your home if you want additional safety and security measures for your property. They can be set to turn on automatically once it gets dark, so unwanted visitors are deterred from sneaking into your home, and you can see easily when you get home late at night. You might put floodlights on your garage, porch, or patio.
- Accent lights: This type of outdoor lighting is just as it sounds. They’re typically smaller lights that light up smaller spaces. You can use them to highlight focal points in your yard, like an impressive statue or beautiful landscaping. Accent lighting can also include your more decorative lights, like string lights to transform your deck or patio.
- Step Lights: This type of outdoor lighting is perfect if you often come home after dark and find yourself tripping over the front steps. These step lights can be put on the sides of your stairs to adequately illuminate each step, so you can see where to put your feet without tripping up the stairs.
