As summer gets started and more social activities head outdoors, make sure your home is prepared for the move outdoors just as much as you are. With the bright summer sun, daytime activities in your yard are plentiful! To ensure your home is ready for summer nights outside, consider these lighting designs for your home this summer.
If you’re planning on spending a lot of time outdoors this summer, motion-controlled lighting is a great way to both add light to your yard and to ensure you aren’t wasting electricity. With motion-controlled outdoor lighting, you’ll only use it when you need it. This is also convenient for other seasons, whether you’re having a spring barbecue with friends and family or simply taking the trash out after dark.
Whether it is in your front yard, back yard, or both, lighting up your walkway is not only a practical and safe choice but an inexpensive decorating option. Using your walkway lights is also a great way to give dim lighting to your yard or pool area if you want to avoid using brighter lights that may strain your eyes at nighttime.
Lantern light fixtures give your home a classic look while also providing lighting to guide you to where you need to go. Because there is a range of options available, you can install lantern light fixtures attached to your home’s exterior or isolated on a pole, or even a combination of the both. This wide range of options to choose from makes this a great option to light the exterior of your home this summer!
If you put time and effort into maintaining a garden, don’t hesitate to show it off! Though the sunlight during the day will surely display the colors and shapes of your garden, don’t underestimate its beauty in the moonlight with a little help from some small exterior garden lighting. Installing a lighting system for your garden will also allow you to plant, trim, or tend to your garden at any time of day or night.
