Increase the Value and Beauty of Your Home with LED Landscape Lighting
November 9, 2007
Most people do not have to be convinced of the value or importance of indoor lighting as it a virtual necessity. However, many people do not understand the value or importance of outdoor and landscape lighting. A well designed outdoor or landscape lighting system will increase the aesthetic appearance of your home and garden and highlight the features of your home.
Outdoor or landscape lighting will provide three principle benefits:
1. Safety. Studies have shown that criminals and vandals are less likely to select a home or property that is well lit. Most criminals will move on and select a home or property that is dark because there is less risk of detection. Outdoor and landscape lighting also reduces accidents and injuries caused by people tripping and falling in poorly lit areas.
2. Expansion of Living Space. Many homes have very nice outdoor living spaces such as decks, gardens, or patios. These spaces are often used less frequently at night because they are not well lit. Added some outdoor or landscape lighting to your outdoor living space allows the home-owner to enjoy this space at all hours of the day.
3. Beautification. If you visit any neighborhood with high-value homes you will see that most of these homes are illuminated at night with landscape lights, spot lights, and path lights. A well designed outdoor lighting plan will highlight the features of your home and garden.
