Ottawa Electrician: Outdoor Home Lighting Solutions

Outdoor Home Lighting Solutions

Focusing on the curb appeal of your home adds value to your property, beauty and enjoyment. One area to upgrade around the exterior of your home is lighting. Gorgeous lighting is a great way to make your outdoor space more lively and secure. Handyman Connection, your electrical contractors in Ottawa experts, can help homeowners design and install sleek lighting fixtures for their outdoor spaces, such as decks, patios, front walkways and exterior perimeters.

Outdoor lighting helps improve the visibility of your property at night and can prevent trips and falls. Lighting may also help keep your home more secure from trespassers and burglars at night. Adding outdoor lighting fixtures to your home can also give your exterior a dramatic makeover and improve the curb appeal and overall style. Here are the lighting options we recommend for the best results:

LED or String Lights

A cheap and simple lighting option for your outdoor garden or patio is a set of string lights. There are lots of inexpensive options that can give your backyard instant glam. Most of the string lights today feature LED bulbs, which last for years without burning out. Our pros can help you hang a set of string lights all around your outdoor space to give it a gorgeous updated look for your next evening soiree.

Pathway Lighting

Next, consider adding lighting to your outdoor pathways to improve safety when navigating your backyard and front entrance after dark. Pathway lighting illuminates your property’s sidewalks and other walkways to improve safety and security. There are solar-powered options that don’t need additional electrical wiring or outlets to keep your lights on whenever it gets dark. You can also have our team install lighting that operates through an outdoor outlet.

Step Lighting

There are also some pretty lighting options for the outdoor steps around your home. Illuminating the sets of stairs around your home can help prevent potential falls. We can install lighting inside each step to make it much easier to navigate when it’s dark. We can also design lighting along the walls and railings of your outdoor stairs to add some visual appeal to your space.

In-Ground Lighting

Another possibility for your property’s lighting design is to choose in-ground lighting. Well lights and deck lights can be mounted into your outdoor sidewalks, patio or deck. This is a great look for your backyard if you plan on entertaining and hosting parties or cookouts with friends or family.

Lighting Spotlight

Lighting spotlights can also be used throughout the exterior area of your home to accentuate different features of your house. We can install lights to put the focus on windows, doors or other architectural features to make your home stand out. Many of these lighting projects don’t add more strain on your electrical system if they are solar-powered. LED lighting options are also much more energy-efficient and won’t break the bank or overload your system.
