Outdoor Lighting Benefits
Have you seen the light? The outdoor light. There's something about a house bathed in light. Words like elegant, stately, and dignified are just a few adjectives that come to mind. The benefits of a proper outdoor lighting package are many; we want to share a few of them with you in this blog.
Let's start with the best part, the beauty. A well-lit house and landscape, to put it simply, just 'looks good.' You can't put a price tag on curb appeal, but lights will make your home stand out, and the cost isn't as high as you might think.
Outdoor lighting doesn't only look great; it provides a security benefit. While your lights will showcase your home, they also do the exact opposite to any ne'er-do-wells looking to break-in. Well-lit homes are like kryptonite to burglars; these bad guys are like other forms of scum; they like to operate in the dark. According to FBI reports, there's a burglary every 18 seconds in the United States, and the average property loss per break-in is more than $2,200!
Safety is another reason to add lighting to your home. You know your property well, but a little light on your paths will make it safe for you and your guests to get around. No one wants to trip over a rock that they couldn't see in the dark.
There's a lot to lighting
Outdoor lighting is one thing you can do yourself, but it's best to leave it to the pros. There's a bunch of things to keep in mind when setting up a lighting system. Besides the fun stuff like coming up with a design plan, it's essential to know details on your electrical system, the bulbs you want to use, the fixtures, the wiring, and that's only a few of the factors that go into outdoor lighting.
