Landscape lighting is a becoming a popular way to increase our homes curb appeal and value. It is no longer something only used in the nicest mansions but can be used to increase the attractiveness of any home. Some people wonder if this investment is the right choice for them and their home. When deciding to install landscape lighting, and if its the right choice for your home there are several things to consider.
Do you drive home at night past your neighbor’s beautifully lit home just to pull into a dark driveway? If so, this is a good indication that installing your own lighting would help keep your home consistent with the rest of your neighborhood. As you’ve probably noticed, your neighbor’s property looks amazing both night and day and your house can be just as attractive with the right landscape lighting.
If you are looking for increased safety, installing landscape lighting is one of the best ways to do this. Having a well-lit yard makes your home less of a target to any potential burglars and makes it safer for you and your family coming home every night.
With timed landscape lighting you never have to worry about turning the lights on and off as they will automatically come on when you need them and turn off when you don’t. This means that you don’t waste electricity during the day but will never come home to a dark house again.
Do you have a beautiful exterior living area that you wish you could use more often? Landscape lighting allows you to utilize these beautiful exterior portions of your home more frequently. Not only does it increase visibility it creates its own ambiance for any event or peaceful night in.
Property values are something that we are always concerned with, but especially as we get ready to sell a home. If you want to get top dollar or simply want to improve your properties value, outdoor lighting is a cost-effective way to do this. These systems are more affordable than most people realize but make a huge impact on the overall appeal and value of your home.
