Choose Spaces To Highlight
It doesn’t matter if you’re lighting your front yard or your backyard — you must choose a few main subjects to illuminate. The most common spaces include a few of the following:
- Your doors or entryway areas
- Your pathways and steps
- Courtyards or gathering spaces
- Trees, shrubs and garden areas
Incorporating light into these areas will not only make these spaces safer and easier to navigate, but it will also ensure you’re properly highlighting the areas you want to showcase the most.
Pick The Right Lights
The overall purpose of outdoor lighting is to provide enough light to the exterior of your home. This can be done through wall lights, spotlights, path lights, floodlights and other types of outdoor lighting using LED light bulbs, halogen light bulbs or traditional incandescent light bulbs.
By combining all of these lighting elements, your end result will be an optimized lighting solution. Not sure where to start? Simply consult one of our lighting experts at The Light House Gallery — we’ll be more than happy to help you pick the perfect lights for your outdoor spaces!
Get Outdoor Lights That Match Your Personal Style
Don’t just buy lights because they’re cheap or they’re “what’s in” — buy light fixtures that showcase your personal style. The exterior of your home is the first thing people will see when they walk in, so make your first impression a great one!
