Your siding greatly affects more than just your home’s durability and indoor comfort during inclement weather. Having an attractive siding greatly improves your home’s curb appeal, making it look inviting to you and your guests while making it desirable for buyers in case you decide to sell it in the future.
Did you know that you can enhance your siding simply by adding the right lighting fixtures? By using the correct light fixtures or by placing them in the right spot, you can add drama and flair to your siding, regardless of its condition.
Here are some outdoor lighting ideas for your home’s siding as described by Sturdy Home Improvement, your siding and roof replacement contractor.
Commonly used in garden lighting, festoon lighting can also be used to add drama to your otherwise plain looking siding during the night. Simply attach festoon lighting near your exterior walls and watch it come alive. Perfect for those late-night barbecues and al fresco dinner parties.
Fairy lights exude a softer, more natural effect compared to festoon lighting, but when placed in small areas, they provide adequate illumination that’s bright yet relaxing. Your home additions expert advises that they’re best placed in smaller gardens where walkways are quite narrow.
Up-lights are an effective way to enhance your home’s siding and garden. By up-lighting plants, small trees, topiary or other feature plants, you turn an otherwise simple garden or walkway into one that’s atmospheric and inviting.
Up-lighting plants near your exterior siding will result in an even more dramatic effect. You can also do this using solar-powered spike lights.
Certain areas of your home are best illuminated using down-lights. Down-lighters are effective at changing how your exteriors look. Use them in walkways, entrances and other areas where you want more attention.
If you’re looking for the best lighting that can enhance how your siding will look, look no further than architectural lighting. These light fixtures will greatly improve your home’s curb appeal by adding shadows and light that will flatter the best of your exterior features.
