Beautifying your home’s curb appeal while making it more secure.
If you want to enhance the beauty of your Houston home while providing it the security and safety you desire, you may want to look into landscape lighting. Landscape lighting is an elegant way to enhance your home’s architectural features while making it more secure during the nighttime hours.
A landscape lighting design increases the curb appeal of your home.
When we think of curb appeal, the first thing that often comes to mind is a meticulously landscaped lawn framed by perfectly trimmed trees and a few strategically-placed garden beds bursting with a palette of flowers.
All too often, landscape lighting is an afterthought. But it shouldn’t be. Lighting the landscape of your Houston home has the potential to illuminate your home’s special features.
It creates shadows and contrasts through the use of your home’s landscape. It plays with the elements to create an alluring design, making your landscape more intriguing. It creates balance in your home’s curb appeal and landscape.
When your landscape is designed with an attractive lighting solution, it’ll become another living space for you and your family. You’ll want to spend more time there and create more lasting memories.
Lighting your landscape also adds to the safety of your home.
This is especially important when entertaining and receiving guests at night. A landscape lighting solution can help guide your guests safely on the walkway leading to and from your home’s entranceways.
It’s important to focus on entryways to increase security, safety, and visibility. Adding landscaping lights to the doors of your home should be a high priority. Your home’s garage shouldn’t be overlooked, either.
Adding landscape lights to all of these focal points will also deter outsiders who mean harm. They are less likely to invade a home that’s well lit.
Where should landscape lighting be installed?
As we’ve mentioned, your home’s entryways and the areas leading to it are important. Here are some other things to consider:
- Does your home have special features? Your home may have a pool, gates, fencing, or columns. You’ll want to add focus and highlight those areas and put them on display.
- Functionality should be a huge consideration. If you have a deck or a pathway that meanders about, you’ll want to light those up. Any area that receives foot traffic should be well-lit to prevent injury.
- Are there areas you want to stand out more? Landscape lighting can take a simple feature and offer it another dimension. The interplay of light and shadow makes a huge difference.
- Trees shouldn’t be overlooked. Adding light to trees can offer just the right amount of ambient light needed.
