Find Your Lighting Style
The lighting you use around your home plays a pivotal role in shaping the aesthetic of your home's exterior. Narrowing your style can make the search for lighting simple. Here are a few tips to help you find the ideal wall lighting style for your home.
- Consider the façade of your home and make note of any unique qualities. Does your home feature lots of curved accents? Perhaps your home is more modern and built with clean geometric lines. Take your home’s architectural features into account when looking for outdoor lighting.
- Match your new outdoor lighting fixtures to existing fixtures around your home. For example, if you have a brass door handle and knocker, adding light fixtures that are made with a similar brass finish can give your home a cohesive, well-designed look.
- Look for outdoor lighting fixtures that match your home’s trim. If you have dark trim on a white house, a dark lighting fixture can blend in even if doesn’t match all other fixtures. Coordinating your lighting to your trim generally gives your home visual balance.
- Pair your lights to outdoor furniture and accessories. Match your metal dining table or complement your pool furniture if you’re shopping for wall lights to illuminate these areas.
