Entry Lighting Ideas To Boost Your Home’s Curb Appeal

One of the easiest ways to spruce up your homes entry is with new lighting.

Imagine, as the sun begins to set, you turn on a front porch light to illuminate your home. While many of us just see this as a normal routine, leaving a light on is more than just illumination. It’s a welcoming sign for visitors and gives additional safety at night. With this in mind, why just settle for any old light? By upgrading your front porch light fixture, you’re adding curb appeal and creating a warm environment for guests. So, here are three ideas to consider:

HANGING PORCH LIGHTS

Nothing compares to the elegance of a hanging front porch light. This welcoming light illuminates a front porch and if hung properly, will draw all the attention to the front door entryway. Many hanging porch lights cast a wide range of light, so it likely will not need any companion lights. This is a great option for homeowners who truly want to make their front porch a focal point of their home.

Since it’s not attached to the home, outdoor porch lights have the freedom to go where you’d like, making them an extremely versatile option for the homeowner who is thinking out of the box. Many times, these lights are placed in the entryway to the porch. These come in many classic styles either with one bright light or multiple bulb options and they stand alone. A pro electrical contractor needs to be approached for its installation as the wiring can be complicated if you don’t already have a post light installed.

LANDSCAPE LIGHTS

These are not necessarily limited to the yard, but can be used to highlight areas of your home and entryway that you want to see at night. Consider a single landscape light to shine on a tree or feature of the home, illuminating the décor and giving light to the entryway. This lighting option is subtle than most and can work to subtly highlight your front porch.

ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES

In addition, you can opt for an array of other lighting options such as porch ceiling lights, home security lights, and wall lights. An upgrade or installation of front porch lighting can transform the look of your home, and adding exclusive lighting to the front porch will definitely help boost your homes curb appeal.
