How your home’s value can be improved with LED lighting.
Installing LED lighting at your home is a wonderful way to be more energy-efficient and improve the appearance of your front or back yard. What you might not realize is that the installation of LED lights also has the potential to add to the value of your home. There are many different LED styles and designs to choose from, along with many different applications. Let’s take a look at six LED lighting solutions that will help increase the value to your home.
Focus on Architecture
The architecture of your home may look great during the day, but with the right type of lighting, it’ll look even better at night. Proper LED lighting solutions designed and installed by professionals can use angles, shadowing, and other effects to help certain features stand out. This will improve your home’s value to a potential buyer when they visit your home after the sun’s gone down.
Light Up the Garden
With many homes, gardens and vegetation just don’t get the amount of love that they deserve. If you have impressive trees, shrubbery, or other types of vegetation in your yard, this can add value to your home if you present them properly.
Adding LED lights at certain spots can bring out the greens of different plants, along with the reds, whites, yellows, and other colors of flowers or other types of blooming plants. Highlighting your garden is especially useful since potential buyers are often interested in starting up a garden of their own.
In this day and age, security of your home must always be a top priority. No matter what type of security lighting you choose – such as flood lighting or strategic placement to cover any blind spots – this will add to the perceived value of your home. Depending on your homeowners insurance, adding certain types of security accessories (such as alarms) could also lower your premiums, so be sure to check your policy.
Many homeowners don’t realize the huge impact that entryway lighting has on the value of their home. Path lights and overhead lights are a great way to welcome visitors through your front door and provide them with better visibility while they’re walking outside at night. There are many different styles of LED path lights you can choose from, so you can really make it your own.
Adding any type of security to your home will typically increase its overall value, not to mention its safety, of course. Regardless of what type of LED lighting you choose for your landscape, you should consider hooking it up to motion detectors. Having your lights come on whenever motion is detected not only has the potential to increase the value of your home, but can also prevent your property from being vandalized or trespassed upon.
If you have a swimming pool in your backyard, you probably already know that it adds quite a bit of value to your home. The same is typically true with any ancillary landscape items, including the construction of a pool deck. Install a bit of LED lighting to the deck and you’ll not only make the area safer for nighttime dips, but you’ll further add to the value as well.
