Improving Your Home’s Curb Appeal
If you’ve lived in your home for a few years, you’ve probably made minor upgrades here and there, making it either more functional, more comfortable, or both. When it comes to the exterior of your house, one of the top priorities of most homeowners is to retain and perhaps improve curb appeal. You want people who drive by your home to be impressed by the design, the architecture, and the landscaping. When people walk or drive by at night, your outdoor lighting is what highlights and accents those design and architectural features, and what makes your landscaping stand out from your neighbors.
Perhaps you’ve noticed that a certain aspect of your home’s exterior, such as an arch or a corner, that could use some more illumination. If your house lacks that one eye-catching feature that you know will improve the curb appeal, a new light can provide the illumination you need. If you’re planning to sell your home in the near future, making lighting upgrades this spring can help attract more potential buyers.
Improving Safety and Security
Besides creating the ambiance you want, your outdoor lights should provide safety and security around the exterior of your home. Maybe you’re thinking about adding a new walkway from your driveway to your front porch, you’re planning to build a new deck over the old backyard patio. Once the sun has set, it’s important that each sidewalk and pathway has adequate lighting so that people can see clearly as they make their way to and from the house.
If you’ve noticed that a certain part of your yard is particularly dark at night, you can add motion sensor lights that turn on when they sense movement. You don’t have to illuminate the entire yard all night long, but adequate security lighting can help you feel safer inside your home, and protect your property against trespassers and intruders.
Spring is a great time for making upgrades to your home’s exterior, and if you’ve been looking at your outside lights this winter and thinking about how you can make them better, then Accent Lighting is here to help.
