Take Control of Your Home’s Lighting

It’s cold! It’s dark! Winter is officially here in less than a month, but it feels like the deep throws of the dark and cold already. Thankfully, there are solutions! First, you have the option of moving somewhere that has more daylight. Or, to avoid uprooting your life, you could consider a simpler solution—landscape lighting.

Why come home to a dark driveway, dark lawn, and dark house? There’s nothing inviting or safe about unlocking your door in the pitch black.

There are several options when it comes to landscape lighting.

  1. You can go the simple route by adding solar lamps to frame your driveway and some column lights to illuminate parts of your lawn.
  2. Or, you can get a little more fancy with some uplighting to your home to accentuate the architectural details of the front exterior.
  3. You also have the ability to extend your living space by adding lighting your back exterior with down lights mounted on deck posts and step lights set in the riser of the steps to provide light on the deck.
  4. Path lighting also reduces the risk of tripping or falling.

With the cold weather on the rise, now is the perfect time to set up your exterior lighting to make the most use of your fire pit and outdoor space while staying safe. Take advantage of the perks of landscape lighting, such as automatic lights, energy efficiency, and remote applications that allow you to control your lighting system from your cell phone.

Call Rainy Days today for an evaluation of your home and suggestions on how best to utilize landscape lighting for the benefit of your home.

Illuminate Your Home

Yes it’s still summer, but autumn is quickly approaching and those dark winter nights will be here shortly. Now is the time to start considering incorporating landscape lighting to your exterior to illuminate your home when the nights get longer and the daylight passes quickly. Here are 5 important reasons to have landscape lighting installed around your house:

 5. Decor | Your home is your sanctuary from work and you spend a lot of time making it look presentable. Why not showcase your landscaping and highlight the architecture of your home to highlight attractive areas? Decor is a great asset of landscape lighting, allowing you to experiment with illuminating your home in the most attractive way possible. Mood lighting will romanticize your exterior and welcome you home, while low-voltage exterior lights will showcase your plants and gardening for you to enjoy 24 hours a day. Don’t let darkness hide your house, allow your taste to shine through with tasteful landscape lighting.

4. Curb Appeal | We’ve all heard ‘curb appeal’ and houses used in conjunction and landscape lighting can be a huge benefit in increasing that appeal. A well-lit house displays a warm and inviting home that welcomes family, friends, and visitors. It shows that the lawn and house are cared for and well-maintained by the owner, which increases property value in the long run. It also helps visitors find your house in the darkness and makes them feel invited. The value of curb appeal also lies in the possibility of your home being listed for sale in the future. The exterior is the first impression, and it takes 8 following instances to change that impression. Make it stellar by setting it apart from the surrounding houses.

 

 3. Comfort | By expanding light outside of the confines of your home, you can extend your living space into the outdoors. Maybe you invest in a screened-in porch or a fire pit, any way you use exterior lighting can benefit your family, friends, and guests when hosting parties, dinners, or simply relaxing outside on a warm summer night. Use uplights and install lights on outdoor structures to illuminate your home farther.

2. Safety | The safety of your family, guests, and pets can depend on the lighting available outdoors. Use walkway lamps to light paths, and illuminate your pool, patio, deck area, and any steps that could be tripped over. This will ensure the safety of any activities you may host, and may prevent accidents.

1. Security | Exterior lighting offers many security factors including motion activated lights and remote control from your smart phone. Burglaries and break-ins are significantly reduced when the front door and windows shed light on anyone attempting to cause harm to your property. Talk to your neighbors about keeping an eye on your house when you are out of town, and leave your home illuminated especially when you are away for long periods. Motion activated lights are highly effective as well in keeping criminals away from your home.

LED Lighting Choices

There are more lighting choices available than ever before. Even with all the new choices, it’s still simple to recognize LED lights as having the best advantage. Because of their small size, LEDs are now being incorporated into bulbs and fixtures for general lighting applications and provide unique design opportunities especially for landscape lighting fixtures.

It’s Easy to Get Started! Want to upgrade to LED lighting? Need a landscape lighting design from scratch? Discover the difference LED lighting can make. Let Rainy Days Irrigation provide a consultation to find the right solution for your home. Rainy Days will create a custom design and perform proper installation of your new LED system so you can enjoy all the benefits for years to come.
