How to Set the Mood with Landscape Lighting

Landscape lighting can not only help you highlight the best features of your home, but it also gives you an opportunity to make your property safer and more secure.

But perhaps best of all, landscape lighting allows you to set a certain mood for your exterior.


Consider how warm or cool you want your landscape lighting to be

Warm Outdoor LightingThere are some people who are under the impression that all landscape lighting is created equal. But this couldn’t be further from the truth!

There are cool white lights that you can use when lighting an outdoor space as well as warm white lights, giving off completely different vibes. Cooler lighting will brighten up your space and inject some energy into it, while warm lighting will make it feel more intimate.

Your goal should be to pick the right lighting based on the type of event you’re hosting or the overall feel you’d like to create for your outdoor area.

Strategically place overhead lighting throughout your outdoor space

You probably don’t want to make your outdoor space too bright. But you do want to strategically place some larger light fixtures, like outdoor chandeliers, in areas where more light is needed.

It’ll allow you to put some extra emphasis on the most important parts of your outdoor space.

Try to outfit your trees with lighting to tie your whole look together

Do you have trees throughout your outdoor space?

Use them to tie the overall look of your outdoor lighting together. Smaller lights can be positioned on trees to make your outdoor space appear larger than it is. Doing this will also make your outdoor space feel a little bit more magical for your guests.
