Exterior lighting is designed not only to enhance the visual appeal of the exterior of your home but also to help you make the most of your outdoor spaces. And if there’s ever been a time to try to get out and enjoy outdoor living spaces illuminated with contemporary lighting fixtures, this is definitely it.

Staying home is one of the best things you can do to stay safe and to do your part to help “flatten the curve” and slow the spread of the Covid-19 virus. But staying home doesn’t mean you have to stay cooped up inside. Whether you have a small balcony or a sprawling backyard, designer exterior lighting can help you get out and enjoy it. 

Landscape and Exterior Lighting

If you are thinking about lighting up and enjoying your outdoor areas, the design pros at HGTV recommend that you start off by defining what you want your new exterior landscape lighting to do. “Before you invest in any landscape lighting, ask yourself what your purposes are for wanting illumination in your backyard,” they say.  

It’s not just a question of lighting up the night and finding a little space to stretch. You can accomplish a lot of things with exterior and landscape lighting. If you have kids, you might want to light up a section of your lawn for their use as a playing ground. If it’s just the two of you, you can use exterior lighting to inspire romance or to create a little welcome breathing room after all your together time. 

Exterior lighting is also a great way to enhance home security and safety. Designer exterior lighting on your front porch or by the back door will do a lot to keep crooks at bay, while strategically placed flood lights or pathway lighting can illuminate uneven walkways or steps that might trip someone up.
