Thanksgiving is this week and that means family gatherings and a lot of hanging out around the house. What better way to have an inviting home this season, than having a well-lit and welcoming residence. Outdoor lighting can create a very fun and inviting vibe this Thanksgiving. Not only can it make your landscape stand out, outdoor lighting can add safety as well. Here, Georgia Lightscapes discusses the benefits to outdoor lighting and why you should invest in some this year.
Why Invest In Outdoor Lighting?
Warm & Inviting
Outdoor lighting can highlight parts of your home that wouldn’t be possible to see at night. By illuminating different parts of your home and property, you are showcasing your home during the holidays. This makes your home more inviting to family and guests. A well-thought-out lighting plan can transform your dark home into a bold and warm space. For example, highlighting a few trees can light up the branches and yard below. Garden walls, flower beds or any other focal points can come to life at night with well-planned illumination.
Prevent Holiday Crime
Outdoor lighting is a great way to avoid your home being a potential target for thieves. Lighting draws attention to a house, which increases the chance of a thief being seen. By increasing these chances you are actually decreasing the likelihood of crime in your area. If you plan to have the whole family over for dinner, make sure no strangers are lurking around cars while everyone is inside eating. Deter crime this holiday with proper lighting.
Avoid An Accident
The last thing you want during the holidays is an accident around the home with family. Outdoor lighting helps with visibility and decreases the chances of someone tripping and getting hurt. Outdoor gatherings or backyard football that take place at night can be potentially dangerous with dark areas obscuring uneven paths and cracked sidewalks. Strategic illumination of problem areas in your yard can help avoid unfortunate accidents and hurt family members.
Value Of Home
One of the top attributes of outdoor lighting is that it adds style and dimension to your property. With well-placed lighting, a modest and subtle home can turn into a property that stands out and makes your family wanna move in. Light can add space and dimension to an otherwise boring exterior. Outdoor lighting ultimately increases the value of any home, offering a huge advantage when it comes time to sell.
