How to Light Your Home's Exterior

Posted on

There's no one-size-fits-all answer to outdoor lighting, but there are some general principles that can help you choose the best option for your space. Here are a few things to keep in mind:

1. The type of outdoor space you have will dictate the type of lighting you need. For example, if you have a patio or deck, string lights or lanterns may be a good option. If you have a garden, path lights may be a better choice.

2. Consider the mood you want to create with your outdoor lighting. Do you want it to be romantic and cozy? Bright and cheerful? calming and relaxing? The type of lightbulb you choose (LED, incandescent, etc.) can have an impact on the overall mood of your outdoor space.

3. Think about how much light you actually need. If you're just looking to add a bit of ambiance, you won't need as much light as you would if you're trying to illuminate a large area.

4. You'll want to take into account the style of your outdoor space when choosing lighting fixtures. The fixtures you choose should complement the overall look and feel of your home. If you're near water, or aiming for an elegant, coastal/nautical vibe, our dock lights and exterior nautical lights are a perfect choice.

5. Finally, consider the type of materials used and the durability of the exterior lights you're buying. Brass, chrome, and copper will last a lot longer (and look much better) than cheap, plastic lighting.

By following these guidelines, you can choose outdoor lighting that's both functional and aesthetically pleasing. With a little trial and error, you'll be able to find the perfect lighting solution for your outdoor space.
