Outdoor lighting is a great way to create some personality around your mobile home by adding convenience and ambiance to your exterior. So, if you are looking for an improvement that can help you out – especially during months with shorter days and less light – this may be the solution to consider. Outdoor lighting may not be at the top of your list when it comes to home improvement, so I’ll take a quick look at reasons why outdoor lighting may be a good idea for your home and some options to consider. Let’s jump in!
Why outdoor lighting?
There are many reasons you may benefit from lighting: whether your driveway is hard to see from the road, you have pets that roam around outside unseen, or friends have a hard time finding your place for a visit – adding light could make all of these issues go away. A flood light that turns on during motion could also discourage intruders.
Extends your home
Lights also make your porch into a room at night. They add space and create more room for parties, late night heart to hearts, or chasing lighting bugs with kids. You can extend shorter days in the fall by adding outdoor lighting! Your day doesn’t have to end when its dark outside. Create a space with lighting that will let you fully enjoy all the seasons.
What lighting options should you consider?
• Path lighting
• String lights
• Flood lights
• Porch light
• Step lights
• Tiki torches
• Battery operated candles in lanterns
Extra ideas to make your lighting perfect
• Use solar paneled path and stair lights (ecofriendly!)
• Try a timer that will set lights to come on. You’ll look like you’re home and it could save you some cash on your electricity bill.
I hope this helps you create a lighting plan for your exterior! Here’s to loving your whole home – even the outside!
