How a Well Lit Home Can Keep You Safe

As the days continue to get shorter and sunset is earlier each day, now is the time to make sure your home is safe! Starting soon, many of us will be leaving our houses and coming back home while it’s dark. It’s important that you know exactly what awaits you and that you can be certain of your surroundings. 

Why You Should Invest in Outdoor Home Lighting

Proper outdoor lighting can provide you with safety, security, and help you feel more comfortable about coming and going in the dark. It’s crucial to be aware of any unexpected activity and obstacles that could be around your home. Lighting up your driveway will make it easier for you to park and get in and out of your car. Adding light to a doorway, walkway, or staircase can help ensure yours and any guest’s safety and prevent falls. Putting up lights around your home’s sides and back can help provide a sense of security and certainty that you, your family, and house are safe. Pay close attention to any areas of your property that are dark and hard to see behind, such as shrubbery, trees, sheds, etc.  

Another added benefit to illuminating your home is beauty! Lights can help accentuate parts of your home’s architecture and enhance your yard’s natural beauty when the sun goes down.

Ways to Add Light to Your Home’s Exterior

Here are some lighting ideas to help ensure yours and your home’s safety:

  • Motion sensor lights – Adding lights that are turned on when they detect motion by your front door, back door, and garage can help you not only when you are outside in the dark, but also to be aware of someone or something unwelcome on your property.
  • Lanterns – Not only do lanterns add a touch of beauty and architectural design, but they are also a great way to add light to key areas outside your home.
  • In-ground lights – Adding in-ground lights to line your driveway or walkways is an easy way to make sure you know where you’re going and add beauty to your property. Try solar powered lights!
  • Uplighting – Using bright light bulbs anchored into the ground and angling them upwards adds lots of light to dark areas and creates a beautiful and elegant landscape. Try pointing them up in trees!
