Bright Light Ideas For Landscape Lighting

m4Landscape lighting shouldn’t only be pleasing to the eye but also functional. To have both of these benefits, your lighting should be properly placed. Here are some ideas on how you can hit two birds with one stone, with the use of proper landscape lighting.

A Grand Welcome

Putting lighting fixtures on your house’s entrances would definitely earn you both beauty and functionality. By doing so, you are enabled to identify visitors and greet guests easily even at the middle of the night.

Putting wall lanterns on both sides of the door attains a welcoming and warm look for your home. It also gives a classy feel since the wall lanterns resemble torches, which were used in the medieval days to light up castle entrances.

If you want a single light for your entrance, you can put an over-hang light on your porch. Lighting your entrance can also be very helpful especially, if you’re always having a hard time fitting your door key.

Home Sweet Home

If you have family members that arrive late at night and use the garage, placing a lighting fixture in the outer wall of the garage can be very helpful. It is somewhat a safety measure for them.

A lot of accidents happen even when people park in or pull out from their very own garages. That’s why it wouldn’t hurt if you put some sort of lighting, so that it could serve as a guide for them.

Security Purposes

You can also put lighting fixtures in areas in your house that are commonly looked over and are covered by shadows. Areas like backyards and sides of the house are included here.

If you want, you can even install motion-sensitive lights or heat-sensitive lights for added security. You also get to conserve energy with these types of lights because they only switch on when they sense movement or changes in temperature.

Instant Romance

By lighting up patios, decks, and porches, you instantly have a romantic evening getaway spot. You can do this by hiding mini-lights with low-voltage under railings, benches and steps. It doesn’t only serve as a guide for the steps, but it also gives a romantic aura to your place.
