Between the wet weather in the valley and the 300 inches of snow in the Sierra, spring still feels a long way off here in northern Nevada. If you’re coming home to a dark house after a long day, consider how it might lift your spirits instead to drive up to a beautifully lit home. That’s one of the benefits of residential outdoor lighting, and it goes far beyond an exterior light by the front door. Here’s why you should consider lighting up your home with outdoor lighting – right now.
Aesthetics – Enhance your Home’s Curb Appeal
Well-placed lights around your home’s exterior are an automatic upgrade to its appearance. When lights are positioned properly, they enhance features you love – and can downplay areas that still need some work. Make your home stand out even after the sun goes down. It really does make a dramatic difference. But beauty aside, there are functional and practical benefits to outdoor lighting at home.
Functional – Expanded Outdoor Spaces
If you’ve invested time and money into creating beautiful outdoor spaces that you want to enjoy, don’t let darkness take them away! By adding exterior lighting to your patio, walkways, and driveway, you can expand your outdoor spaces for enjoyment in spring, summer, and early fall. When it’s just too cold to be outside (no outdoor fireplace?), exterior lights make these parts of your property safer.
Practical – Improved Safety & Security
Many burglaries are crimes of opportunity – someone seizes the chance as it comes up. A dark entryway or side entrance may be considered an opportunity to the wrong sort of individual, and adding lights is an easy deterrent to potential intruders. Strategically positioned lights can also make it easier for you to get in and out of the house when it’s dark.
