3 Outdoor Lighting Tips To Enhance Your Home’s Winter Curb Appeal

Shorter daylight hours and colder winter weather contribute to a weaker housing market towards the end of the year. Oftentimes, winter landscapes are drab and potential homebuyers typically view homes in the evening, when it’s already dark.

If you’re trying to sell your home this winter, one of the best ways to increase your curb appeal and draw homebuyers to your door is by updating your exterior lighting.

Here are some simple tips on how to do this:

1. Light Up the Path

Home viewings are often very short affairs, especially because most buyers follow a gut reaction soon after setting eyes on a house. Because first impressions are key, that walk up to the front door can be extremely influential on a buyer’s final decision.

What to do: Make those first steps a charming experience by installing low voltage path lights along your front walk. This will not only highlight the best features of your home and garden, but will also add an extra level of security that will be appreciated by potential buyers.


2. Draw Attention to Outdoor Living Areas

Homebuyers aren’t without imagination - they will be able to see the potential in your home’s backyard or patio. So if your property includes a natural outdoor space, consider accenting it by adding string lights.

Why this works: Even in the cold winter, string lights can remind potential buyers of the warmer summer weather to come, and your home’s potential for hosting social gatherings.


3. Highlight Unique Architectural Features

One of the most important functions of interior and exterior lighting is to highlight the beautiful and unique aspects of your home. Installing up lights can show off the best architectural details your home has to offer.

For example: If your home has graceful, beautiful columns, adding spotlights in the eaves will make these even more striking for potential buyers.


Benefits of Residential LED Lighting

While traditionally, homeowners preferred fluorescent exterior lighting to LEDs, advancements in LED technology now provide added benefits to your outdoor lighting. This includes:

  • They’re more energy efficient
  • They have a longer life-span
  • They’re more cost-effective in the long run and require less maintenance
  • They come in a range of colors and styles to suit all requirements

If you want to upgrade your outdoor lighting, talk to your local electrician about how an LED retrofit can lower your utility bills and enhance the look of your home.
