Light Up Your Home’s Value

Why You Should Work with an Outdoor Lighting Company

What improvements or features add the most value to your Atlanta, GA, property? As any good realtor would tell you, updated kitchens and bathrooms are the highest on the list. The reasons for that are simple; they are the areas that involve the most expense to upgrade or renovate. 

Do you know what’s next on the list? Perhaps unsurprisingly, it’s curb appeal. In this case, those renovations are often easier and less costly, like new paint, spruced-up landscaping, and a new front door. But we have another item that sometimes doesn’t get the attention it deserves for adding curb appeal – outdoor lighting. Here is where working with an outdoor lighting company can pay off, not only boosting your home’s outdoor aesthetics and the value of your property in the long run but also making your home safer and more enjoyable.

Aesthetic Appeal

Outdoor lighting can do wonders for the aesthetics of your home. During the day, the eye can see everything. At night, the right lighting can direct the eye to your home's best features. Highlight architectural features, landscaping, a fountain, trees, or anything else of visual interest. Outdoor lighting companies use professional techniques like uplighting, downlighting, silhouetting, and more to create a visually stunning view of your home at night. 

Safety and Security

A well-lit property is a safer one. The right illumination for driveways, walkways, entries, pools, decks, and other areas creates a safer space. Not only will this lighting make your home safer after dark, but it can also deter intruders from trespassing on your property. 

Energy Efficiency

Are you concerned that outdoor lighting can use up too much energy? Modern LED outdoor lighting is vastly more efficient than older incandescent fixtures and bulbs. Plus, LED lighting lasts far longer, which is an excellent benefit for outside lighting that is on for long hours after dark. 

Avoid Light Pollution

Many neighborhoods are increasingly concerned with light pollution. A professional outdoor lighting company can help you select the right lighting solutions that avoid light pollution, comply with homeowner association rules, and are neighborhood-friendly. This involves careful selection of lighting fixture intensity, color temperature, and positioning to add aesthetic appeal and utility while not disturbing the neighborhood.

Increasing Value

Outdoor lighting increases your property value in two significant ways. One, it enhanced curb appeal, showcasing your home in the best light at night. Two, it adds utility and enjoyment to outdoor spaces like pools, patios, kitchens, gardens, landscaping, and more. Creating an inviting outdoor environment with light is a great way to differentiate your property.
