When considering outdoor lighting enhancements for a front walk, sidewalk or front porch, remember these three key elements.
Have Your Address Easy to Find
Make certain that your house number is well lit for safety and practicality. Guests arriving after dark will appreciate knowing which house is yours. A simple spot light on your number or a down-lite is plenty to accomplish this.
Guiding the Way
Lead guests to the front door or along sidewalks and paths with path lights set along the walkway. Choose soft-light fixtures that direct most of the light downward. Lighting sidewalks and pathways will increase the safety of your property as well.
Step by Step
Ensure safe footing on steps between outdoor living areas by using down-lighting or foot lighting to easily show stair depth. Spot lights on the exterior of your home will also add indirect light to these areas, making them easier to transgress.
