Are you considering outdoor lighting for your Northern Virginia home? Instead of moving, many homeowners in the area are improving their homes. They are adding decks, patios, gazebos and outdoor kitchens, and they aren’t just planning to use them in the daytime.
The trend toward expanding outdoor living spaces has been growing for some time now. In past years, the goal was lighting the outdoor space and showing off the garden. Now the focus is on finding innovative ways to light outdoor spaces so they can be used at night, much as they’re used during the day.
Backyard decks no longer just have a small light near the door. Lighting designers are now installing down lights in trees and attaching them to chimneys to shine light down on the space. They are also putting in a lot of step lights to make the transition from the upper to lower level easier. People no longer have to feel that they’re under a spotlight when they sit outside under the stars.
Is Outdoor Lighting a Good Investment?
Not only is outdoor lighting a good investment, an outdoor lighting system also allows you to walk around your property at night safely. It is a deterrent against unwanted intruders, for the same reason as it is welcoming to your guests: visibility. Outdoor lighting makes your home gorgeous at night, as it highlights features to bring out the beauty that was always there. It shows off the beauty of your patio, deck, gazebo, pergola or pool during the dark hours, while extending the usability of your outdoor living areas into the night. Outdoor lighting is great investment when it comes to home value and for the experiences your family will have with neighbors and friends!
