Building your own custom home can be an exciting project. But you don’t have to do it all by yourself. During the design phase of the process, it’s okay to have numerous questions. Something you do need to consider is how much exterior lighting you have. Here are some reasons why you should have more than you might think you need.
Increase Curb Appeal
You deserve to have a custom home that is beautiful enough to make your neighbors envious. Adding more exterior lighting can improve aesthetics while increasing curb appeal. Plus, you can make walkways and stairs much easier to see. Landscaping features, trees, hardscapes, and other elements of your home can be accentuated in a tasteful and elegant way. Consider how you can make your property look bigger and more welcoming to guests and other visitors than ever before.
Having enough exterior lighting is also essential to keeping your home safe. The lights can keep potential intruders away since they’ll be more afraid of getting caught. This tactic can also give you and your family some peace of mind, and that is something more valuable than money can afford sometimes.
Enhance the Atmosphere
The lights you put outside can also help your home feel cozy and bright. It’s almost time to start decorating for Christmas and the other end of the year holidays in December. You’ll have a much harder time putting festive decorations up if you can’t see what you’re doing! You can also use the lighting to illuminate your pool even if it is now a bit too cold to keep it open.
It Makes Financial Sense
Also, adding more exterior lighting to your custom home design just makes sense. Using LED bulbs helps keep your energy bills down. There’s something to be said about that since Black Friday is coming up and it’s almost time to splurge on getting everyone you care about that perfect gift for the holiday season!
