When it comes to custom homes, it is important to have a well thought out exterior lighting plan. You should enlist the help of an experienced electrician who can work with your landscaper to make sure your lighting plan is perfectly suited to your individual needs and lifestyle. When building a new home, you can save yourself stressful changes later on by having a plan in place for all your exterior lighting needs.
Safety and security are both important concerns to consider when planning your exterior lighting. Motion lighting for security, or pathway lighting to allow you to see where you are walking at night are examples of safety and security lighting. Of course, outdoor lighting can be both functional and aesthetically pleasing. For example, driveway, entrance, pool, cabana and pathway lighting can be designed for added safety while also illuminating architectural details. Accent lighting can also be used for purely decorative purposes, highlighting masonry and other exterior features of your home or garden. – Hotwire Electric, www.hotwire-electric.com
