Installing Outdoor Lighting at Your Home

Looking to make the outside of your home more beautiful, safer and more secure? There’s no better way to accomplish these goals at a price that fits your budget than to install decorative and security outdoor lighting around your house.

Outdoor security lighting deters crime, makes it easier to walk through your yard at night and helps emergency vehicles locate your house at night. Decorative lighting can give your home a warmer beauty and make it easier for you to host outdoor parties at night.

When you’re ready to install outdoor lighting, follow these first few steps:

  1. Determine which areas of your landscape need security lighting. Walk through your yard and look for dark spots in places where there might be hazards, such as uneven ground or water hoses. These are the places where you’ll want the bigger bulbs, such as a LED PAR 38 bulb, to provide a bright light for the area.
  2. Find the places where you might want decorative outdoor lighting. Decorative lighting goes around your house to create warmer tones and shadows around your home, building the curb appeal of your house.
  3. Look for bulbs that are suited for outdoor use and offer a long lifespan. LED outdoor lights are great options when installing landscape lighting because they have longer lifespans and use less energy than traditional bulbs, meaning lower bills and less frequent bulb changes. Regardless of the type of bulb you purchase, make sure it’s been rated for outdoor use and will work with the fixture you’re interested in using.

Once you’ve determined where you want outdoor lighting and which bulbs you’d like to use, check with your city or county to learn of applicable codes for installing outdoor lighting and get started. Installing new lighting can be a fun weekend project that increases the value of your home.
