If placed in the right spots, lights can draw attention to star home features you want people to see. Your curb appeal will go up significantly, and you’ll even have the added benefit of deterring unwelcomed guests from the premises.

Visual Appeal

Properly-installed lighting can bring out the best in your home’s exterior. You could choose to show off a new door you installed, or maybe you have a fountain, and you wish to have the light reflect off its sparkling waters. You could give a garden a new life by having outdoor lights that bring out the various vivacious colors.

Your home will be more inviting to family and guests, and with proper lighting, you can use more of your outdoor space after the sun goes down.


Burglars and other criminals love being able to conceal themselves in darkness. It makes it harder for them to be detected. With outdoor lighting, you expose criminals before they reach your doorstep. Also, whenever you’re arriving home late at night, you will be able to see all of your surroundings. This lets you detect anyone who may be lurking around in your yard.

It doesn’t hurt that outdoor lighting also offers potential insurance credit. Your insurance company may offer you a discount if you have exterior lighting.


Being able to see your surroundings at night helps avoid injuries. If your yard is dark, it raises the risk of you tripping or falling. If you want to host a party, you’ll have to bring the party inside once it gets dark, even if it’s a beautiful night. Keep in mind that all homeowners are liable for any accidents that take place on their property, so investing in outdoor lighting will help to minimize the risk of injury and maximize your chances of safety and fun.


No matter what kind of home you have, outdoor lighting will always add monetary value to the place. The right lighting can help even the most modest of homes to show off its best features. Exteriors that would otherwise be bland can become enchanting and alluring. A well-lit home will be more appealing to potential buyers, making lighting a great financial investment.
