Use Exterior Lighting for Staging Your Home

in Lighting

 

When staging a home to sell, or even just sprucing up a home, have you ever thought about the use of exterior lighting, since the advent of outdoor Christmas lights, the use of outdoor lighting as grown considerably, outdoor flood lights have become very popular to enhance the look and feel of a home.
 
Not only does it enhance the look of your home, but also acts as security lighting, serving a double purpose.
 
Here are just 5 ways of using outdoor lighting:
1. In your garden, to show of your landscaping alongside paths and walkways, make use of this by planting strategically, some really colourful flowers, a good use of flowers by the way is the lavender, placed close to your gate, so as soon as someone brushes past it, they will get a beautiful smell of lavender, scents are very powerful on the mind. This is an excellent use of lighting at nighttime to.
2. Use outdoor lighting to light up a tree, I have seen this done many times, and is very effective for home staging, trees seem to take on a new meaning when lit during the night, if your tree is in a very dark corner of your garden, using flood lights will make this area of your garden more visible, again with security in mind.
3. Garden pond lighting is a very popular feature, I have seen this done not only at night but during the day by use of coloured lighting bulbs, when water is well lit at night time, just the rippling of the water changes the dimensions of your lighting.
4. Among your driveway, in areas of landscaping, can light the way on a dark evening to prevent slips and trips as well as giving your home a great look and feel.
5. Believe it or not, I’m a great advocate of outdoor security lighting, which comes on as soon as anyone comes on to your property, most of these that I have come across have never been set correctly, which is a good idea, as people walk past your property, the security lighting will come on, and stages your property for you.
 
If you are serious about Home Staging as a business or just to enhance your home, then I would highly recommend that you use outdoor lighting, as any outdoor lighting is a great addition to any home, when done correctly.
 
There are lots of stores out their and on the Internet that offer very competitive prices for the outdoor lighting enthusiast, these include Home Depot, Sears, Lowes, Amazon.co.uk, Ace Hardwear just to name a few, and it needn’t be expensive, there is no going over budget.
 
You may get some free training by simply asking these shop assistants questions about outdoor lighting, as these people will have been trained.
