Different Types of Outdoor Lighting

There’s no doubt about it, well-designed outdoor lighting makes a home look inviting and stylish, and helps keep you safe at night.Different Types of Outdoor Lighting

Whether you’re interested in selling your home or just want to spruce up the front of your property, it pays to know about the different types of outdoor lighting.

Path lights are among the most common types of landscape lighting, and consist of small posts that are capped with a diffuser and have a light built in. Use them to illuminate a walkway, or to highlight a favorite landscape feature, like a fountain or pond, in your yard.

Deck and step lights are built into your deck or stairs to make it easier and safer to access these features at night. They can also be used for washing light down stone walls.

Accent lights are a great way to make your favorite yard features stand out. Whether you try “uplighting,” i.e. placing spotlights on the ground and pointing them up to shine on stonework or a sculpture, or “downlighting,” which means shining a light down onto a landscape feature like a large tree, these types of outdoor lighting are a great way to make your home look unique.
