A well-lit home at night is a thing of comfort and beauty. There’s just something about a night-time glow that puts us at ease and welcomes us in.
The finest example of form meets function, custom outdoor lighting serves many purposes. Here are three reasons outdoor lighting is important — and what you might consider when choosing lighting for your outdoor spaces.
1. Outdoor Lighting Makes Your Home Safer.
2. Outdoor Lighting Makes a Statement.
On a less practical level, outdoor lighting is important because it makes a statement. You spend a bundle to buy or build a house, and your investment should literally glow in the dark. After all, what good is curb appeal after sunset it you can’t turn on some lights? Lights on and around a house complement the architectural style of the house and function a bit like fashion accessories, adding texture and interest to a home and its grounds. Even while serving a practical purpose, driveway sconces show off a gated entrance. Light posts along a winding driveway may as well say, “Come right this way, dear friend.” Likewise, a porch pendant says, “We’ve been waiting for you.”
