Lighting Your Outdoor Spaces
Enjoy the outdoors well into the evening with the right lighting. Outdoor lighting enhances the curb appeal of your home and creates a functional, inviting outdoor living space your family can enjoy for years to come.
Use landscape and path lighting along your driveway and walkways to make your home look welcoming and to provide guidance in the dark. Showcase your landscape with outdoor flood and spotlights aimed at gardens, entryways, or other fixtures around your home for instant nighttime curb appeal. A lamp post and lantern add a timeless aesthetic to your landscape while increasing safety along pathways and sidewalks. Illuminate an outdoor seating area or entryway after dark with attractive wall lights and sconces. Wall sconces not only accent your home’s exterior, but they also light the way to porches, patios, and doors.
If you're conscious of your home's carbon footprint and contribution to light pollution, consider an energy-saving solution. LED lights generally consume less energy, saving you money in the long run. And compared with other lighting options, LED lights emit fewer lumens and provide a softer glow. Dark Sky approved lighting is another option. These lighting fixtures are fully shielded to minimize glare, reduce light trespass and skyglow, decreasing the amount of blue light in the nighttime environment. Set an outdoor timer to ensure your lights go on and off when you want them to—even when you're not home. Lighting timers can deter unwanted visitors after hours and help keep your property safe. Solar outdoor lights gather energy from the sun during the day and come on automatically at dusk. Most solar-powered lights provide up to eight hours of illumination.
