6 Benefits of Choosing The Right Outdoor Lighting For Your Home

Is the exterior of your home dark and dreary? Here are six compelling reasons why you should install outdoor lighting in your Calgary home. 

Exterior lighting is equally important as your interior home lighting. It should be installed properly to provide a relaxing and safe environment for you and your family. That’s why it’s important to pay attention to where you’ll set the lights and what kind of exterior lighting you’ll use to light up your garden.

Hiring a qualified professional to install your outdoor lighting is important because they can:

  • ensure your lights are installed safely and quickly
  • design an outdoor lighting plan that shows off your backyard and its features
  • create an inviting, safe, and warm atmosphere
  • make sure your outdoor lighting serves practical purposes such as deterring criminals and increasing your level of home security

6 Reasons Why You Should Install Outdoor Lighting In Your Home

With the warmer weather and longer days, many Calgary homeowners are eager to barbeque and entertain. This means that the need for proper outdoor lighting becomes more vital than ever. If your garden is poorly illuminated, here are 4 compelling reasons why you should invest in proper outdoor lighting:

  1. Outdoor Lighting Increases The Value Of Your Home. Outdoor lighting is an easy and relatively inexpensive way to raise the profile of your home, making it look beautiful at all times of the day. In fact, according to some studies, exterior lighting can add up to 20% of the perceived value of a home.

  2. Outdoor Lighting Makes Your Home More Beautiful. Exterior light fixtures can be used to create ambiance on patios and decks, while making the outside of your home look more dynamic and attractive from the sidewalk. It’s also a great way to add an extra touch of elegance to your home.

  3. Outdoor Lighting Deters Burglars. While a dark home exterior may look uninviting to some, it can certainly be appealing to potential thieves and burglars. Installing some properly placed outdoor lighting and motion-sensing lights are a great way to frighten off vandals and those with ill intentions.

  4. Outdoor Lighting Makes Your Pathways Easier to See. Exterior lighting acts in a similar way to a flashlight by illuminating a dark area. When you’ve installed outdoor fixtures, you no longer have to worry about you and your guests finding their footing or navigating your property.

  5. Outdoor Lighting Helps You Show Off Your Property. The right choice in lighting can actually become part of your landscaping. It will help showcase aspects of your garden design and highlight certain trees or even water features such as a pond or fountain. You may even want to consider mood lighting that you can dim, depending on the type of atmosphere you’re trying to create.

  6. Outdoor Lighting Helps Prevent Injuries. A big advantage of outdoor lighting is that it helps prevent injuries. It also helps reduce the risk of someone slipping and falling on your property. Pay close attention to areas where traffic may be highest such as around pools, decks, or other outdoor seating areas.
