How to Pick Outdoor Lighting for Your House

Who doesn’t enjoy good outdoor lighting? Not only can outdoor lighting help illuminate part of the front of your house, but it also shines on the entire backyard, and can bring a refreshed look to your house. 

What outdoor lighting is right for you? Take a look below to see which each kind has to offer!

Who Needs Outdoor Lighting?

Outdoor lighting keeps the entertainment going late into the evening. Not to mention, it also helps improve navigation at your home. The best part is, lighting can aid in keeping unseen threats away which makes your home safer. 

Landscape Lighting

Landscaping lighting, which is also known as spot lighting, allows a homeowner to shine a single narrow beam on one concentrated area. Often, this light comes in different intensities and aids in highlighting unique plants as well as lawn ornaments. 

String Lighting

A very popular way to bring warmth and ambiance to your home is with string lighting. String lighting, which are also known as Edison bulbs, makes a wonderful addition to outdoor patios, kitchens, gazebos, pergolas, and more. Be on the lookout for waterproof lights with rechargeable batteries to make the most out of this option!

Security Lighting

A great and affordable way to keep your house safe is with high-detection motion lights. These are often the brightest lights and the highest voltage you can have. Use these on your front or back porch, or even garage! Newer options may feature smart home options. 

Path Lighting

If you’re enjoying a late night out with friends, path lighting provides your home with a safe way to walk in the night without having to worry about tripping. Even better, solar LEDs are an excellent option for this type of lighting as you do not need a power source and charge itself.
