- Safety and Security – With adequate outdoor lighting, you can help deter thieves from targeting your home. It will significantly lower the risk of your home and your family becoming victims in a burglary or worse. Plus, exterior lighting can help increase your safety when walking around outside once the sun goes down.
- Welcoming Ambiance – With the right amount of outdoor lighting (also in the right places), you can create a very welcoming environment for any visiting friends, family members, co-workers and any other guests that you may have over. At the same time, it helps to increase their safety as they are walking up to your home or around your home. This is particularly helpful when your guests have never been to your home before and are not familiar with the set-up and layout. For best visibility, lighting should be at the beginning, middle and end of any exterior walkway.
- Entertaining Guests – If you enjoy entertaining guests, especially outdoors on your patio or in the backyard, then outdoor lighting is an absolute must. Not only does it provide adequate lighting for dancing, eating and socializing, but it can also help spruce up the area for the perfect ambiance for entertaining.
- Highlighting Features – If you're looking to put focus on a certain part of the yard, such as a foundation or other garden features, then outdoor lighting can be the perfect way to achieve a dramatic, yet sophisticated look.
