Installing outdoor lighting can help complete your exterior design style, adding ambiance and personality. Outdoor lights make it easier to navigate your outdoor spaces, reducing the risk of falls and accidents between dusk and dawn. Landscape lights can come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and styles, which allows you to place them throughout different areas of your property.
Some styles can light up pathways to help you get from your car to your front door. Others can accentuate your garden or plant life dispersed throughout your landscaping, like trees, bushes, and flower beds. Overall, installing lights throughout your outdoor space will increase safety and style when you have guests at your house.
Whether it’s LED, electric, or solar-powered, modern outdoor lighting is designed in such a way that they do not wear down after being exposed to different weather conditions and natural elements. In addition to being weather-resistant, many styles of patio lights and landscape lights can be set on a timer.
Outdoor lights with timers allow you to control how long the lights are turned on. Oftentimes, homeowners set their lights to turn on during sundown and turn off during sunrise. This setting saves energy and makes the most sense for featuring different elements of your front yard and backyard when it’s dark out. The timer feature on landscape lights also prevents you from having to go outside throughout the night, so you don’t have to interrupt your routine while you’re inside the home.
At CJ’s Hearth And Home, we carry a wide variety of landscape lights, including outdoor lantern lights, wall lamps, ground lights, hanging lights, and solar lights.
Outdoor wall lamps can be mounted above eye level to put a spotlight on different areas of your home or fence. Wall lamps can be used to highlight architectural features and, if there's an area where people hang out, to light it up and make things more visible.
Ground lights are installed into the ground and can be used to light up walkways, driveways, or paths throughout your front yard. Outdoor ground lamps are especially effective in drawing attention to flower beds, bushes, and small trees. Ground lights, such as solar walkway lights, are built with pointed spikes on one end, allowing for easy installation and stability during windy weather.
Hanging lights are playful decorations that are hung from tree branches, and they can be used to add a touch of whimsy and beauty to any outdoor space. Hanging lights can also be hung from roofs, fences, and overhangs to light up lawns, patios, or any other areas that require minimal lighting. Wherever you place your outdoor tree lights, they provide a simple way to intertwine modern home decor with nature.
Many outdoor landscape lights are now powered by LED bulbs, which are more energy-efficient and longer-lasting than traditional incandescent bulbs. Additionally, many outdoor landscape lighting companies are designing LED solar lights with solar sensors, which absorb light rays from the sun and convert that energy to power the light bulbs without electricity. Solar lights are becoming increasingly popular in 2023 and beyond.
Installing landscape lighting is one of the best ways to elevate the style of your home. The specific styles, shapes, and finishes of the lights you choose will depend on the exterior design style you’re trying to achieve.
