Understanding the advantages of outdoor lighting will help you to properly enhance your space and achieve this.

 

1. APPEARANCE

One obvious advantage to landscape lighting is the overall improved look of your home. Your home stays visible and stands out even at night. When used properly, outdoor lighting can highlight structural features adding intrigue and a sense of drama.

 

2. FUNCTIONALITY

Improve every inch of your space by adding outdoor lights to increase functionality. When your space is properly lit, the whole outside area can be utilized in a whole array of sorts after sundown. Don’t be restricted to certain areas at specific times; expand your space physically as well as aesthetically.

 

3. VALUE

Any addition to your home will boost its worth. A quick way to increase its value is with the addition of lights. A beautiful, solid home will always be worth more and with landscape lighting you will be able to spot cracks and problem areas even in the dark to easily correct them and increase your property value. Lights also have a way of creating a wonderful ambiance and outdoor lighting can feel almost magical, adding luxury.

 

4. PERSONAL SAFETY

Without night-vision, it is hard to see in the dark. Outdoor lighting can help increase personal safety by lighting pathways and certain areas that are full of potential dangers like stairs, pools, and raised edges. Lighting those areas will decrease the frequency of accidental falls and other injuries while safely guiding people to and from your home.

 

5. HOME SECURITY

Having a well-lit space protects from criminals targeting your home. Vandals and burglars are more successful when they’re hidden beneath the shadows. Brightly illuminating your home rids it of hiding spots for unwanted guests; focus on entrance points like doors and windows.
