With the rising temperature, we’re enjoying the weather and trying to spend as much time outside as possible. Grilling, bonfires and watersports are favorite past-times in our family.
With more time on our deck and patio, we pay closer attention to the exterior of our home. Maybe you already planted the annuals, watered the perennials, uncovered the deck furniture and fired up the grill. In fact, you can dress up your favorite spaces with outdoor lighting techniques that will make an impression without breaking the bank. Where can we start? Here are 4 outdoor lighting tips to decorate our home.
You can place the light in front of an object, which then casts a shadow on the surface behind an object (typically, the house). This effect can add depth and interest to the exterior of our home, while also adding enhanced safety by calling to attention the home’s exterior.
Uplighting means to illuminate an area, surface or object from below to create a focal point in your landscaping. To do this, a spotlight is typically used to showcase a tree in the foreground, while the home in the background remains dark. Uplighting is a great way to showcase flowering trees and other features that are at eye-level or above.
Path lighting is likely the most common outside lighting technique. Along with improving the safety of our walkways, path lighting can also enhance dynamic landscaping elements like flower beds, shrubbery and borders. A mixture of high and low path lights can give our walkways a brighter look and a feel that is welcoming and inviting to us and our guests.
We often spend so much time and money on the building of the deck and the perfect furniture, but rarely do we factor in the lighting that will truly make your deck unique, not to mention more functional. Deck lighting has the power to improve the safety of our deck by highlighting the stairs and also makes the deck more noticeable and appealing.
