Landscaping isn’t the only thing you can add to your property’s exterior to make it stand out on your street. There are a lot of unique lighting techniques you can use to bring an extra touch of personalization to the exterior of your home. From the simple but effective floodlight to the classic path light, here are some ideas to keep in mind if you’re thinking about vamping up your property’s lighting style.
If you’re not quite sure where to start, your first step should be to add some architectural lighting to the front of your home to ramp up your curb appeal, says Houzz. Architectural lighting works to highlight the architectural features of your home, and this type of lighting can be easily added by installing floodlights like these to your property that face your home.
The next step you can take is to define a pathway. If you have a long driveway or a pathway leading to your front door, adding lighting like this to either or both will draw a passerby’s eye to your home’s front door or focal point. Plus, it’s polite to make sure that your pathways are well lit for your guests! If your home’s exterior has steps leading to a porch or a deck, adding lighting to accentuate the steps can also add a unique and appealing design element to your home’s exterior.
Think about what you love to look at on your home’s exterior. Whether you have a tree that you really love, or a garden, or maybe a small koi pond, these are all great outside features that would benefit from a bit of extra lighting. You can’t go wrong by adding a bit of extra light – and if you find that it doesn’t work for you, you can always redirect the light to another spot or refocus the lighting until you’re pleased with the results.
