Exterior lighting is an important choice for the consumer. Not only does outdoor lighting directly effect a homeowner's safety and security, but it has a direct impact on curb appeal and resale value as well. Exterior lighting must be practical as well as attractive. Lighting designers must blend wattage requirements with aesthetics to create a functional lighting plan. Too little illumination can lead to safety hazards such as trips and falls by visitors, as well as unwelcome visits by burglars. Too much wattage can leave a home with a garish glare unpleasing to the eye and damaging to home values.
Further, the exterior environment of your home is a demanding location. The effects of moisture, cold, sunlight and other environmental variables can be extremely detrimental to exterior lighting fixtures. Quality outdoor lighting manufacturers use superior materials and finish techniques to ensure the maximum life from your exterior lighting fixture while maintaining the wonderful appearance we all desire. The cheap, stamped-out fixtures offered by some chain stores may seem tempting to some consumers. Unfortunately, these consumers are usually rewarded with a fixture that not only fails prematurely, but looks like it was purchased at a discount store as well. Take a drive down your street at night and you will see exactly what we mean!
