CAN ADD AMBIANCE
TO A PROPERTY
The value of the right lighting in a home is undeniable.
Lighting can instantly transform a room and create the
ambiance homeowners are looking to establish.
Backyards have come a long way over the last several decades.
Once reserved as play areas for children and stomping grounds
for the family dog, backyards have become oases for homeowners
and their families. Outdoor living areas are wildly popular,
and no such area is complete without exterior lighting.
Exterior lighting can have a dramatic effect on landscaping,
and estimates from the online fi nancial resource Kiplinger.com
suggest such lighting is inexpensive, with installation averaging
roughly $67 per fi xture.
When installing exterior lighting around their landscapes,
homeowners can keep various tips in mind to create a relaxing,
awe-inspiring mood on their properties at night.
• Consider uplights. Uplights are installed in the ground and
direct light up at a tree, focusing on its trunk or canopy. This
creates a dramatic effect that makes it possible to enjoy majestic
trees at night just like you might when spending time in the
yard during the day.
• Focus on trees. Many homeowners already have exterior
lighting lining their walkways and patios, but focusing on trees
can create an entirely different look. Though it’s possible to
install exterior tree lighting on your own, landscaping professionals
with lighting experience know which fi xtures will pair
most effectively with the trees around your property and how
to arrange them for maximum effect.
• Opt for warm light. Warm white light creates an inviting
feel around the property. The exterior lighting experts at Utah
Lights acknowledge that choice of lighting is up to homeowners
but also note that, in situations with lower levels of ambient
light, such as in exterior lights around a property, people typically
prefer warmer light. That’s because warm light tends to
be easier on the eyes and directs attention to the features of the
landscape, which is many homeowners’ goal when installing
exterior lighting in their yards.
• Utilize a timer. Modern exterior lighting timers make it easier
than ever to control the lights outside a home. Many such timers
even adjust for the changing seasons and the shifting hours
of daylight. That means homeowners shouldn’t have to tinker
with the timer once it’s set.
Exterior lighting can add signifi cant appeal to a property without
breaking the bank.
