A number of exterior lighting upgrades can provide extra curb appeal and security to your home.

Well-lit exteriors make a wonderful impression on any building. You can boost your curb appeal, property value, and safety by installing a simple yet efficient exterior lighting upgrade. You can also use exterior lighting upgrades to highlight your favorite landscaping features, like shrubbery or fountains, to make sure your home’s beauty is enjoyed even after sunset. If you want to increase your home’s appearance and improve the enjoyment and safety of your exterior space, consider installing the following exterior lights with Professional Electric Inc. 

Step Lights

Install LED strip lights or step lights along outdoor stairs as a maintenance-free solution that improves safety and security. These lights provide more beauty and make the steps much safer to use in the dark. 

Motion-Sensor Lights

When motion-sensor lights are paired with security cameras, you enjoy even more security for your property. These bright lights instantly turn on when they detect motion, are often quite energy-efficient, and can be solar-powered. 

Path Lights

Exterior lighting upgrades include path lights that illuminate your pathways and enhance nighttime visibility. In addition to providing safety, path lights create an inviting atmosphere for all visitors. You can use these lights for garden beds, the path to your front door, the driveway, and a ground-level patio. 


Downlights are designed to illuminate or put focus on a particular area. They can light up dark and secluded home areas, walkways, and flower beds. 


Spotlights or uplights will point upwards to highlight plants, trees, and other ornamental landscaping features. Install these lights above the ground level for a better impact. 


Floodlights are another exterior lighting upgrade that can contribute to your security. They can light up broad areas like driveways, patios, and decks. By covering large areas often shrouded in darkness, they ward off potential intruders. 

Bollard Lights

Bollard lights can add lots of character and visual interest to your landscape. They can be used to illuminate long pathways and landscapes to increase safety and direct people on where to walk. If you have many paths or want to highlight particular areas like poolsides, or your pond, these can help spotlight this area even more. 

Wall Lights

Wall lights help add depth to a blank exterior wall. Incorporating multiple wall lights in your exterior lighting design can add unique aesthetic appeal and provide the light you need in an understated way.
