How to Pick Outdoor Lighting for Your House

Outdoor lighting can spark a whole new look for your home. Whether you want to illuminate part of the front of your house or the entire backyard, outdoor lighting can help bring your vision to life.

How can you decide which outdoor lighting is right for you? The ideas below may point you in the right direction! 

Why Do I Need Outdoor Lighting?

While outdoor lighting is a fantastic way to keep the entertainment going into the evening, it also helps improve navigation at your home. This can aid in keeping unseen threats away and also showing off the hard work you put into your landscaping. 

Landscape Lighting

Landscaping lighting, which is also known as spot lighting, shines a single narrow beam on one concentrated area. This light is often of different intensities. These lights often aid in highlighting unique plants and lawn ornaments. 

String Lighting

String lighting is a very popular way to bring a warm ambiance and unique style to your home. String lighting, also known as, Edison bulbs make a wonderful addition to outdoor patios, kitchens, gazebos, pergolas, and more. When choosing this option, look for waterproof lights with rechargeable batteries to make the most out of this option!

Security Lighting

Keep your house safe 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!

Path Lighting

Path lighting provides your home with a safe way to walk in the night without having to worry about tripping. Solar LEDs are an excellent option for this type of lighting as you do not need a power source.
