Nothing sets a more dramatic, warm, and welcoming, even an artistic effect to your house better than outdoor lighting. From simple to complex the only limit is imagination. From enhancing the existing textures of walls, fences, flooring and pillars, to making beautiful statements with the trees and gardening around your house, the many choices in outdoor lighting are sure to make your home a real head turner. And as an added bonus, enhancing home safety and security.
- When working with outdoor lighting one should use the textures integrated within their home to determine what their theme should be, stone and brick and even foliage will vary on how lighting should be fixated on the home.
- Pointing your lights a specific way will enhance the lighting on ones home. Down lighting should be utilized on pathways or a porch, while up lighting can be used on trees, sculptures and windows.
- A home should always be set with task lighting so the exterior intelligently lights at the proper time as the sun goes down. A home should not light up too early or too late.
“With the right lighting plan for your house and yard, you’ll be able to appreciate aspects of your home that aren’t evident when the sun is shining.”
