Many homeowners spend so much time, effort, and money into the lighting in their home, but surprising number overlook the exterior. Accent lighting for your home not only creates great curb appeal, but adds value, increases safety, and is generally a low-cost upgrade. Here are a couple quick suggestions as you plan your project.
Survey Your Landscape
Before deciding on where you would like the lighting to be installed, consider the purpose. There are many variations of lights available, from those most suitable for illuminating a walking path or driveway or those that act as an uplight for a tall tree, steps to a deck, or perhaps a line of shrubs.
Wall-mounted down-lights can shine in a downward fashion and are great for steps or patios.
Consider, too, that lighting is also great for security purposes. From a lighting system that is on a timing schedule or those that charge during the day, activate at sundown, and turn on when motion takes place, using a proper lighting system – and having one professionally installed – can create an added sense of security and protect your home.
Powering Your Lighting System
There are a few primary options here, including lights that operate off of rechargeable batteries, and sustain that power from solar panels, lighting systems that operate via AC power, and those that are hardwired to existing power.
If you have a small area to light, a diy system might be completely plausible, but if you are looking at having a larger project done, particularly one that requires connecting to your existing power, be sure to hire a professional.
