Three Reasons to Buy Outdoor Lighting

Time:2021-05-27 Views:1062

Knowing the benefits of outdoor lighting will help you create a lighting plan that works best for you. Here, three reasons you might need lights around the outside of your home.

1. Outdoor Lighting Adds Curb Appeal
Great lighting outdoors adds ambiance to any home. Little extras, like a post light at the end of the driveway, add a welcoming touch. Install lights in multiple locations for a layered look with maximum curb appeal.

2. Outdoor Lighting Creates a Unified Look
For even more curb appeal, use fixtures in the same style or from the same lighting collection to ensure a cohesive look.

3. Outdoor Lighting Adds Safety and Security
Make sure there’s ample light where you need it, especially near doorways, patios and walkways.


How to Choose the Right LED Outdoor Lighting?


Depending on the location of where you want to install lighting, there are a number of choices available.

Wall Lights
Best Uses: Porches, Patios, Entryways, Garages
The classic front or back porch light, wall lights can be mounted on virtually any vertical surface. One of the most commonly seen outdoor fixtures, wall lights are a durable and attractive way to brighten your home and the area surrounding it.

Ceiling Lights & Hanging Lights
Best Uses: Porches, Covered Patios
Need more light on a covered porch or veranda? Or don’t have room for wall lights? Ceiling lights and hanging lights are the perfect options. Built for damp locations (where they’re never directly exposed to rain), these fixtures can be a bright and beautiful addition.

Post Lights & Pier Mount Lights
Best Uses: Walkways, Driveways, Patios
As the name suggests, post lights are fixtures that mount on top of posts. Because they’re usually placed in open-air settings like driveways and pathways, most post lights are “wet rated,” meaning they are designed to withstand direct exposure to rain and moisture.

The diameter of the post (also called a pole) needed may vary according to design. See individual product detail pages for specific recommendations.

Pier mount lights look much like post lights, but are designed to be installed on top of columns or walls. In some cases, we offer YOKE different bracket, allowing you to install post light fixtures at top columns or walls.

Security Lights
Best Uses: Walkways, Alleys, Garages
The best solution for a safe and secure property, motion sensor lights are triggered by movement. Security lights, in particular, offer a bright, flood-like light that helps ward off would-be intruders.

However, motion sensor lights can be decorative too. These designs are perfect for high traffic areas as they automatically turn on whenever needed. Read more in the section below.

Landscape Lights
Best Uses: Gardens, Landscape Features
Landscape lighting is a low voltage system separate from the wall and ceiling lights listed above. Path, spot and floodlights can be used in combination to give your property a rich, layered look.
