Homeowners spend a lot of time and resources for careful architectural designing and landscaping of their homes. But the fact is that once the house is built, there is not a single more influencing factor than the outdoor lighting, which can make your home prominent in the neighborhood. Creative, well selected and well placed outdoor lighting can drastically transform the night view of the house.

Here are a few tips to consider while planning the outdoor lighting for your home:

  1. 1.    Emphasize On The Front Lighting:

Front lights are extremely important in terms of both safety and aesthetics. Flood lights are most commonly used because they brilliantly illuminate the area and help in keeping the house safe.  However, if you don’t want your home to give impression of an amusement park by keeping high-intensity flood lights on all the time, try motion sensors along with some low intensity spotlights installed at the corners for keeping appropriate level of illumination throughout the night.

  1. 2.    Light The Walkways:

Your guests will feel much more welcomed and safe if the pathway from the drive way to the front entrance of your home is well-lit. So, wisely choose the design and type of path lights and always prefer soft and non-glaring down-lights to create a more comfortable atmosphere.

  1. 3.    Watch The Steps:

Poorly-lit stairs and risers can cause accidents which is why it is very important to keep them well-illuminated at night. Building lights into the steps is a good idea because it prevents glare and gives just enough glow to spot each riser.

  1. 4.    Enhance The Focal Points:

Find one or more focal points in your front yard and highlight it with the help of a spot light. In most homes, a big and beautiful tree can serve as the focal point and an appropriately provided up-lighting by one or more spotlights can easily enhance the attractiveness of the focal point as well as the entire front yard.

  1. 5.    Outline The Landscape Bed Edges:

Properly illuminated flower and plantation beds looks stunning at night. If you have one or more beds in your garden, consider using rope up-lighting along the outline of the bed. Coloured tube lights, rolled out and pinned at the center, in the corners or all along the outline is also a good idea for providing a hidden glow to the beds.

  1. 6.    Try Lantern Luminaries:

You can easily create the traditional luminaria look in a walkway, staircase or some other outlined zone by placing candles inside glass lanterns and hanging them along the boundary. This cost economical idea can give a impressive appeal to your outdoor areas.

  1. 7.    Submerged Lighting:

Now a days, you can find various types and styles of lights rated for submerged use. So, if you have a water fall, water garden, a fish pond or even a swimming pool, underwater lighting can significantly transform the entire outlook of the area.

Undoubtedly, outdoor lighting is one of the easiest and most significant ways to add ambience to the outdoor atmosphere of your home. Consider these tips and shortly, you will see that the little effort you did for outdoor lighting improvement was worth it!
