I recently read an article by the American Lighting Association on Outdoor Lighting. The article cites outdoor lighting’s benefit, enhancing your property and providing safety and security. It also talked about how outdoor lighting allows you to take advantage of your outdoor spaces after dark and adds value to your home.
Some of the lighting applications were listed as:
- A well-lit front entrance enabling you to greet guests and identify visitors.
- An illuminated house adding security to otherwise dark areas.
- Steps, paths, and driveways properly lit for easier navigation and safety after dark.
- Decks, porches, and patios turned into romantic evening retreats enhanced with spotlights in the branches of nearby trees.
- Water falls illuminated with underwater lighting for beauty and safety.
- Grills and serving areas with bright task lighting.
These are all areas of the home and outdoor spaces we would agree should be properly lit. But where do you begin? The first area should be determined by the way you use your outdoor spaces. Do you want the front of your home illuminated for ambiance and/or additional safety? Do you have a big outdoor event planned that could benefit from deck, patio or backyard landscape lighting? Are you looking to bring some tranquility to your world and just want an outdoor area where you can unwind and relax?
