Outdoor lighting includes any illumination that is used to provide light, safety, decoration, and visual orientation to your home’s exterior. It involves tactical placement of various lighting styles on your sidewalks, garden, driveways, porches, decks, and by your fountain or poolside. 

You can blend different affordable & easy outdoor lighting ideas to increase the curb appeal of your home. Here are some tips to help you with this.

  1. Prefer LED Light Fixtures:

How Outdoor Lighting Improves Your Home Security

In addition to improving your home's exterior appearance, outdoor lighting is also useful in keeping your home safe from intruders. Illuminating your home exterior at night can make it difficult for the burglars to break in as there is no darkness where they can hide. 

Therefore, if you are worried about theft, invest in some outdoor lighting to discourage intruders. However, avoid overly bright lights because they may create unattractive shadows.
