There are many options available for installing outdoor lighting, including low-voltage lights, high-voltage lights, and even solar-powered lights. Consider the purpose for your lights as well. Are you interested in creating a more secure property? Or maybe you want to add a subtle glow that illuminates your flower beds and walkways. Whatever you are looking to enhance with outdoor lighting, make sure the type of lighting you select is included in the process.
Lighting the pathways around your property is essential to maintaining the safety of the area. If you ever plan on entertaining in the evening, pathway lights are a must so that you and your guests can safely navigate your property. The great thing about pathway lighting is that it simultaneously enhances the overall appearance of a yard while offering important safety measures.
Patios are meant to be enjoyed throughout the day and night! If you enjoy spending time on your patio during evening hours, adding downlights can create some ambiance and a more relaxing environment. It also makes your patio easier to navigate when entering and exiting the area.
Trees, shrubs, and flowers
If softscape is the focal point of your property in daylight areas, keep the ball moving with lighting that highlights it at night. Installing uplights for various trees and shrubs will create a clean, elegant, and modern curb appeal.
Make your front door a focal point by installing hanging lamps that reflect your style and taste. Entryway lighting is also beneficial when you light up your address numbers so that guests can easily find your property when it gets dark out.
Swimming pools and water features
If you have a pool, pond, lake, or water fountain, outdoor lighting will really make it stand out. Lights installed behind waterfalls or underneath the water elevate the design and bring on a new level of sophistication.
