Spring is a season with the joy of more extended daylight hours. The moderate temperatures of spring make spending time outdoors at very appealing, even at night. If you have a patio, deck or garden, think about installing LED lights so that you enjoy your outdoor landscape at night as much as during the day. Here are some basic outdoor LED lighting fixtures you can consider for your home this spring.
After spending time indoors during the winter, spring is a welcoming season to get outdoors and entertain guests in the yard. But a little lighting is necessary for improved visibility after dusk, a time many people like to gather after working all day. Some great options include overhead lighting such as ceiling lights on your porch, wall lighting, and string lighting. All these lighting options are efficient and will help you get a fresh breath of spring night air without straining to see each other and the first meals of the season cooked on the barbecue grill.
There are plenty of options when it comes to overhead outdoor LED lighting fixtures, depending on the style of your home. If your home has a modern feel, install recessed lights as compared to hanging or pendant lights. These types of lights are more suitable for homes with a traditional design. And LED lights typically come with a holder to increase the beauty of your patio while providing you with the lighting you need.
If you want to decorate the wall of your patio or even your front door, consider having wall lights installed. Check out classic lantern designs or updated sconces for your wall. No matter what style wall lights you choose, they are sure to add sparkle to your patio and style to the exterior of your home.
Light Up the Porch
Adding an LED wall light on either side of your front door is a practical way to improve the curb appeal and function of your home. For a festive feel that goes from spring into summer, have string lights installed. String lights give your home a classic and elegant look that is sure to impress your visitors and neighbors versus the standard LED light bulbs.
If you want to show off the structure of your home, add some strategically placed LED lighting to your yard. Options such as pathway lighting, landscape lighting, and stairway lighting will improve the appearance of your home’s exterior and the surrounding land. And they illuminate commonly accessed areas to make them safer at any time of the day or evening.
Pathway Led Lighting
Besides being beautiful, lighting your pathways with LED lights guides people so that they know how to move about your yard. If you want to keep traffic off sensitive areas like your lawn, then you might want to consider pathway lighting such as lighting strips. The proper placement of LED lighting creates spaces for people to be and places they should avoid, depending on how the lights are used.
People invest money and time into creating eye-catching gardens. Flowers, bushes, and trees are all planted to create a natural ambiance in your yard. Landscape lighting is an ideal way to showcase landscape designs. For example, lighting near a fountain, pond, or flowerbed draws the eye to this area of the yard. And if you are working on other areas, it also distracts people from focusing on spots that are less appealing. LED lighting also sets a mood in your outdoor spaces, based on its color, brightness, and focus.
Now that spring has practically sprung, it’s time to shed some light on your outdoor living spaces. Let us help you select the ideal LED lighting for your unique needs.
