Curb appeal is important when it comes to your home. And one of the best ways you can amplify your curb appeal is by installing pathway lighting. Of course, there are more reasons to install these lights than just their looks. Below are 5 reasons we recommend you install pathway lights.
1. It Makes Walking at Night Safer
While you may already have some outdoor lights, chances are they are focused on illuminating your yard in general, or they are more focused on matters of security, such as a motion-sensing light above the garage. Pathway lights ensure that you can see where you are walking when returning home late at night, making it less risky for you and your family. This can be a big plus if you are trying to get children inside or are carrying packages.
2. It Helps Accent Your Landscaping and Hardscaping
If you have a beautiful pathway and surrounding landscaping, you should want to complement it with accessories. Pathway lights come in a variety of types, styles, and colors. Rather than treating them as a stand-alone item, you can integrate them into the overall design and make it feel more unified. This is a great way to enhance the style of your home while also adding functionality.
3. It Helps to Deter Thieves
When it comes to theft, most criminals are looking for the easiest targets and those that pose the least risk of being seen. Suffice to say, the more light you have outside your home, the more visible those prowling around it will be. While this is not a foolproof way to protect your home, it is an additional deterrent and will make those looking for the easiest opportunity think twice.
4. It Can Highlight Something Special
Do you have a specific plant along your pathway that you want visitors to really focus on? Or perhaps your pathway has a special border that you want to catch everyone’s eye? Pathway lighting can help. In addition to making it easier to see where you are going, you can use it to shine a spotlight on the features you want to display.
5. It Can Help to Define Your Space
Much like the inside of your home, your outdoor space is divided into different areas that serve different purposes. However, unlike the inside of your home, there often are not walls or other barriers that help to visually divide the space. Pathway lights can help establish a division without obstructing your views or taking away the functionality of your yard. And they are much more affordable than other options available to you.
