Have you ever thought about outdoor lighting for both your home and landscaping? Burley Electrical Services has tons of our customers add outdoor lighting to their home and landscaping that have truly made the homeowners love home. There are many different benefits to adding outdoor lighting.
One of the largest benefits of outdoor lighting is that it truly helps illuminate your outdoor living space. Many of our customers love to spend time outdoors with their family and friends. Without the proper lighting it can be hard to use your patio and backyard as much as you want. When you add outdoor lighting you can begin to entertain more on your porch. If you have had a busy day and want to use that very same outdoor patio to unwind with your spouse you add some low lights as well. Some outdoor lights even come with a dim feature. This dimming feature allows you to keep the lights nice and bright when you are hosting a crowd and have children running around playing and then dim them when you want a romantic evenings or a quiet space to yourself.
Many people think that only their backyard can benefit from outdoor lighting but this just is not true. Have you ever driven past a house in the evening and your eyes are just drawn to it? The homeowners have probably used strategically placed outdoor lighting in their front yard to accentuate the architecture and landscape in the front of their home. This also increases the value of your home. Anything that you can do to make your house stand out will increase the value of your home.
Where to Place Landscape Lighting
In addition to making the architecture of your home stand out increased outdoor lighting can also highlight your landscaping. Tons of homeowners take pride in their landscaping. Landscaping features that are accented with outdoor lighting can truly catch your eye and make a statement.
Flood Light & Security Lighting Advantages
Another reason that outdoor lighting can be beneficial is the added security that it brings to your home. When burglars are casing houses they definitely do not want to risk breaking into houses that are well lit. If a house has lots of outdoor lighting it will be harder for the criminals to break into your home without being seen by someone. Some insurance companies even offer a discount on your homeowner’s policy if you have increased exterior lighting. Outdoor lighting will also help keep your family and guests safer while they are on your property. If it is dark outside it can be easy for people to trip and fall in dark areas, uneven paths, cracked sidewalks, or toys that may have been left out by your children. It is easy to avoid these pitfalls if you have outdoor lighting illuminating the areas.
