Outdoor lights not only look spectacular but they also promote the safety of the house, keeping intruders at bay, lighting up the way for your welcomed guests.
Right lights at the right places can make a huge difference and impact the look and feel of your house. So let’s look at some of the ways you can update your outdoor lights.
Front Door and Porch Lighting
Depending upon the exterior look of your home, you can go for modern or vintage lighting designs, while matching the front door and porch lights.
For a more traditional look, you can go for wall scones whereas a pendant light will complement a modern home.
Driveway and Pathway Lighting
Often the street light does not reach the walkway and makes it hard for your visitors to find the way to and from the house.
If your driveway and pathway are getting sufficient sunlight, it’s a good idea to installing solar stick lights that would lit up the way for you. It’s also worth considering that your lights are weatherproof as well as sturdy, brighter and offer high visibility to serve the purpose they are installed for.
Garden and Pool Lights
Now that’s where things begin to get interesting. Plants, when accompanied with the right lights, can add drama and glamour to your ordinary looking space. While floodlights can make a bold statement in your backyard, spotlights can highlight specific features such as a fountain or the steps.
On the other hand, if you are installing pool lights for your outdoors, consider brightness, colour and energy-efficiency to get your desired look and feel.
Last but not the least is your garage. If you like to spend plenty of your free time experimenting and fixing stuff, treating it as a gym or simply a storage room, you need lights installation that would meet your needs.
LED tube lights are a great way to go for garage lighting. Since your garage lighting doesn’t have to be an elegant one, put functionality, durability and energy-saving as your top priority when choosing lights for your garage.
