The days are much shorter in winter and your home will spend much more time in darkness than it will in the bright sunshine. You still want to show it off, and lighting will help you do just that. Follow this guide to bringing out the character of your home with lighting.
Step out onto your curb or even across the street and evaluate the look of your home. Pick out areas that you see that you could and even should highlight more. This exercise will help you discover ways lighting will enhance the curb appeal of your home. Wait and repeat this exercise at night to really find dark areas that need more lighting, especially for security purposes. You could also ask your friends and neighbors for their opinions. They could give you perspectives that you hadn’t considered before.
For safety and impact, your paths and walkways provide great spaces to use lighting. Again, it adds security to the exterior of your home and directs your visitors directly to your front door. It’s a charming element that your guests and, if your home is on the market, potential buyers will be attracted to. Mark the walkway to your door with low voltage lighting that will be impactful and leave a lasting impression.
Does the exterior of your home have excellent outdoor living areas that you enjoy with your friends and family? Give those areas more life with light. You’ll be able to enjoy these areas longer into the night, especially in warm weather. With enhanced lighting, home buyers will be able to better imagine themselves using those spaces for their own families and guests.
Does your home have any particularly charming features that you think should be highlighted? Many home buyers are looking for homes that are unique and tell a story through their structure. Make sure that those features can be seen from the sidewalk.
