We’re excited to share the latest outdoor lighting trends with you! Outdoor lighting plays a vital role when it comes to curb appeal –and you’ll want to make sure you have plenty of curb appeal when selling your home. We’re here to shed a little light on some recent trends that might change the way you look at lighting.
It’s a good idea to have well-placed lighting along paths, stairs and driveways, not only for aesthetics, but to provide safety for these areas of your home. Some homeowners choose to go with a low-profile approach when it comes to recessed lights that are flush with the ground. Bollard-style lights are pop-up fixtures that boast a unique, modern look that safely light the way to your destination. These lights are becoming increasingly popular and come in a variety of interesting shapes and sizes.
Go solar with your landscape lighting! This wireless, energy-efficient choice will make illumination possible even after a gloomy and cloudy day.
Tiny, copper-wired LED lights are seeing a surge in use. The new styles are easy to bend and twist, and often come with on/off switches and built-in timers, making them extremely user-friendly. Tuck the flexible strands into the fronds of outdoor plants or wrap them around smaller, low-hanging tree branches for a magical, twinkling effect.
So, what lighting will you choose for your outdoor spaces?
