We frequently share curb appeal tips that can add value to your home. Exterior lighting is an investment that has the potential to yield a 50-percent rate of return in an upper bracket housing market.
Here are a few techniques for all homeowners to consider, especially as daylight dwindles. (Daylight Savings Time switch – November 1st.)
Create focal point: Your walkway should be a welcoming beacon to family, friends and neighbors. For safety and security, as well as esthetic reasons, a well-lit entrance is a must.
Highlight trees: Trees are excellent to highlight with exterior lighting, so consider illuminating them from below or even mounting a light to the tree itself.
Up-lighting: Shining light upwards can create a very dramatic effect. When used in moderation, this can help to create a very tasteful exterior lighting plan
Moonlight effect: This is the fundamental theme of many exterior lighting designs. It offers a naturalistic look that is similar to the light of a full moon. When done well, the light will create beautiful shadows and highlights in all of the right places.
