Light Up Your Outdoor Life This Summer!
You put time, money and effort into making your outdoor space beautiful and now you want to show it off to anyone that comes around. Unfortunately, once the sun goes down it can be difficult to show off your masterpiece, but it doesn’t have to be. Choose an outdoor lighting design that is perfect for your home and let Stack Electric get to work on providing you with after dark lighting solutions that will look beautiful and ensure safety.
Choosing Outdoor Lighting On A Budget
Lighting your outdoor home correctly is a responsible choice. It helps to keep your family and guests safe from unseen hazards at night by lighting up the exterior of your home. If you are shopping for outdoor lighting on a budget it is likely that you will focus your attention around the walkways. Ambiance lighting is beautiful and makes a true visual statement, but it is not necessary if you are trying to save money. You do not have to eliminate all ambiance lighting plans just to save money, though. Choose energy saving fixtures and bulbs and invest in lighting controls such as motion sensors, timers and dimmers that provide you a bit more control over your energy bill.
Choosing Outdoor Lighting Fixtures & Designs
There are a few different types of outdoor lighting fixtures you should be aware of before you choose the right look and design for your home. The most popular include:
- Deck and step lights to illuminate driveways
- Walkway and pool edges that clearly line spaces
- Cove lighting which highlights pools and fountains
- Outdoor wall lighting, the most common for front and back porches
Choosing outdoor lighting fixtures for your home is all about knowing which of these options will incorporate well into your current outdoor designs, as well as your overall budget.
Picking Outdoor Light Fixtures For Your Space
You want lighting options that compliment the exterior of your home and provide a subtle backdrop to showcase the natural layout, rather than lighting that will overpower your guests and steal the focus away from your landscape. Determine how many lights you will need for the amount of space that you want to illuminate and then consider using different types of lighting to layer your look for a more appealing and dynamic layout.
