Light Up Your Outdoors
Enjoy the outdoors well into the evenings with outdoor lighting. Not only does outdoor lighting enhance the curb appeal of your home, it can be used to design a space that is both functional and inviting for your family to enjoy for years to come.
Path and accent lighting along your driveway and pathways make your home look inviting and help guide you at night. Showcase your landscaping with accent lighting. Consider highlighting gardens or entryways with spot lights for instant nighttime curb appeal. To create an area to enjoy the outdoors at night, use wall lights directed towards a comfortable seating area.
Motion sensors do more than provide an additional sense of security in your home, they also help conserve energy and decrease your home's contribution to light pollution. An alternative to motion sensors is a lighting timer that ensures your lights go on when you want them to—even when you're not home.
If you're conscious of your home's contribution to light pollution, consider using LED lights which typically emit fewer lumens and provide a softer light. Plus, compared to other lighting options, LED lights generally consume less energy and save you money in the long run.
