Tampa Handyman Tips: Benefits of Outdoor Lighting
At ANDY OnCall® Tampa, our handyman services include outdoor lighting installations. We handle everything from simple, one-light installations to complex lighting systems. We also know how outdoor lighting can make a difference for your home.
Below, the handymen from ANDY OnCall Tampa have listed six of the biggest benefits of outdoor lighting, along with how our team can help you get started on your next outdoor lighting project.
Landscape with Light
Landscape lighting can literally transform the look of your front or back yard, giving it a completely different appearance and feel when day turns into night. Outdoor lighting can be used to accentuate specific features, frame key areas, or paint your home with light.
Extend Yard Usability
Nobody wants to share stories, sip drinks, and spend time with friends in total darkness. With even a simple one-light or two-light outdoor lighting system, you can extend your yard’s hours of operation, allowing you, your family, and your friends to enjoy your backyard well into the later hours.
Create a Safer Outdoor Space
Dark spaces can be a big safety hazard, making it easy to trip, slip, or fall due to unseen obstacles. This can be a big problem for yards with inclines, steps, or fixtures, and is a particular risk for older adults. Lighting helps make outdoor areas safer by making them easier to navigate.
Improve Home Security
A well-lit exterior will help you keep your home secure, making it easier to spot intruders and deterring home invaders from your property. Trespassers and burglars will think twice if they can be easily seen on your property. Lighting also signals that you are mindful of your home, and are more likely to have a security system installed.
Set the Mood for Your Yard
Lighting sets the mood in any space, and the outdoors are no exception. An outdoor lighting system can turn a plain home exterior into a stately, upscale garden or a romantic outdoor getaway.
Boost Curb Appeal
Functional and decorative outdoor lighting alike can have a significant impact on the curb appeal and resale value of your home. Pictures of a well-lit home or yard can help push your home on the open market, showing off the daytime and nighttime beauty of your property.
