Nothing works better than outdoor lighting to make your home more inviting. Outdoor lights add curb appeal. They brighten entranceways, making them safer to walk up at night. Outdoor lighting comes in several types. Most connect to your electric panel and a few decorative lights use battery power. Many different outdoor light designs are available. You are sure to find some to match the style of your home. Look for traditional, contemporary or another popular style.
It's a good idea to put outdoor lights over your front door and garage doors. You can operate these with a switch in an accessible location. Or you can install motion sensor lights which light only when someone approaches. Most homes have existing outdoor lights so replacing them with new models is easy. Weatherproof shades make sense so that electrical connections do not get wet. For added safety, you can also add battery-operated path lights to your driveway.
