Different Outdoor Lighting Effects and Applications

Last updated 7 years ago

Outdoor lighting for your house can serve multiple functions, offering a warm welcome to guests and safeguarding against intruders. When it comes to designing an outdoor lighting system, a variety of design, placement, and material choices can help you create a plan unique to your home and needs. Here are some outdoor lighting ideas to consider for your own landscape lighting plan.

  • Path Lighting: Path lighting is a very common form of outdoor lighting.  It is visually pleasing and practice, illuminating walkways or driveways to reveal any potential hazards.  Unlike other outdoor lighting fixtures that may need to be buried, path lights can be left exposed.  By displaying a clear path, you can safely direct guests to and from your home.
  • Wall Washing: Whether you want a soft, welcoming glow around your house or a bright and safe yard, a multitude of fixture and placement combinations can create a look unique to your home and property. While each outdoor lighting plan will vary based on the size, location, and architecture of the house, any home can benefit from a combination of soft and bright lights that create rich texture.
  • Spotlighting: Spotlighting can focus attention to a specific feature of your home or bathe a large area in light. Decorative and functional, your landscape lighting not only means added curb appeal but also increased security.  Having a well-lit yard draws attention to your home’s beauty while leaving few hidden spots that can draw the attention of potential intruders.
