This spring and summer, it’s time to make your home’s outdoor space into the stunning oasis it can be. Adding lighting to your Overlea home is not only useful, but it can add to the beauty and curb appeal. Lighting your home’s landscape helps your home to stand out and emphasizes all those beautiful features regardless of the time of day, wondering where to get started? We’re sharing our four favorite types of landscape lighting for this spring and summer!
Emphasize Your Hardscapes
Along with being beautiful, hardscape lighting serves critical purposes. Depending on where your home is located and your driveway, it can help guests not only find you but stay on the driveway and paths and prevent harm to your space. Likewise, lighting steps and other features can prevent tripping hazards. All the while, this same lighting serves an aesthetic purpose – allowing your beautiful features to be visible even at night.
Light The Way
As with hardscape lighting, ensuring that pathways and stairs are well-lit is critical from a functional purpose. On decks and patios, in particular, having well-lit steps can reduce the chances of injuries and falls significantly.
String It Up
When lighting up your actual entertaining space, using a variety of lighting sources allows for a cozy, festive mood. String lighting, in particular, is a stunning option. For a look that’s less Christmas and more class, make sure to opt for large globe string lights. These can be hung from trees, along railings, and on fences to create whole yard illumination with plenty of personalities.
Add Bright Accents
How can accent colors light up a room? Accent lighting works to light up specific features in your space. These accent lights are a great way to make essential spaces in your design pop. Try adding additional lighting to your bar set up, or LED light balls to your pool for a dynamic effect. Using extra, interesting options helps to draw the focus of your guests to areas or of note, and it’s a great technique to highlight where things are.
