How to Improve Your Home’s Nighttime Aesthetics

outdoor lighting illuminating walkwayHow’s your home landscaping looking? Does it serve the function that you intended it to? Maybe you would like there to be more lights so you can better entertain. Or perhaps you want to spend more time on your patio with your family once the weather warms up.

As spring begins, it makes this time of the year the perfect time to think about any additions or upgrades you might want to make to your home, including a potential Boston, MA outdoor lights installation.

Safety

Think about the walkways leading into your home. If they’re well-lit then you’ll never need to worry about elderly or otherwise compromised guests tripping or slipping on your property because they couldn’t see where they were going.

Something liked zoned lighting is a terrific way to brighten up the areas of your yard and landscaping where you’ll be entertaining or spending the majority of your time. You may want lighting in spots like your patio, deck, garden, pool area, or outdoor seating areas.

Security

If you want to guard your home the best you can, we recommend the installation of a fully armed home security system. But there are other steps you can take on top of that to deter burglars. For instances, you can install the right type of outdoor lighting.

A well-lit house is much less likely to be robbed than a dark and inconspicuous one, since a burglar is, first off, likely to assume that nobody is home, and secondly, less likely to be caught by a neighbor or passerby. No burglar wants to draw attention to themselves by attempting a break-in at a house with lights on all over!

Improved Use of Space and Comfort

The right type of outdoor light fixtures can create the illusion of a larger space. This is mostly true indoors, but can absolutely apply to outdoor settings as well.

For example, if you have a deck or patio with seating on a balcony, then outdoor lighting can be used to visually extend the area and brighten up the space to draw more attention to it.

Highlight Lawn Decorations

Have you ever considered having uplights installed around your landscaping? Doing in this in the right areas can pull the eyes to areas that you want to highlight within your yard. You might also consider “mood” lighting along the exterior of your home, and low voltage lighting to highlight planters.

Our team of expert electricians is more than happy to discuss your outdoor lighting options with you, and give you our professional recommendation on what type of lighting will look best, serve you well, and also give you advice on what your electrical system can handle.

And if you find you can’t make the additions you want because your electrical system can’t handle it, then we can also perform an electrical panel upgrade for you. These have become more popular in recent years as the electrical demand we place on our homes grows.
