Spruce Up Your House This Spring With Electrical Lighting
It’s been a long, dark, cold winter. Time to brighten things up a little bit, wouldn’t you agree? Spring is an excellent time to get electrical lighting upgrades and prep your home for the summer. Consider the following home improvement ideas to make your home shine during the spring season.
Add Additional Lighting to Your Patio Area
Have some outdoor lighting installed around your patio and/or garden. The days may be getting longer but that doesn’t mean you’ll be ready to head back inside when the sun does go down, so add a few lights and stay out as late as you’d like. You can opt for subtle, softer lights to illuminate your walking path or go for more eye-popping, party lights. The styles, designs and functionality options are endless!
Consider Additional Outlets
Have outdoor outlets installed. Outdoor outlets are some of the best and handiest electrical upgrades available. Imagine how convenient it would be if you had a weatherproof outlet in reach every time you wanted to plug in an appliance, radio, etc. And outdoor outlets aren’t just handy for spring, you’ll also be happy to have them when the holiday season rolls around and you don’t have to run ugly, heavy extension cords all over the place.
Install an Electronic Fire Pit
Install an electrical fire pit. Electrical fire pits provide you with all of the benefits of a traditional fire pit, without the headache of having to chop the wood yourself.
Hire a Local Electrician
With these suggestions in mind, it would not hurt to consider hiring an electrician to assist with some of these ideas. Both police along with insurance issuers agree that having good outdoor lighting can deter potential theft or home invasion.
Various Upgrades to Your Exterior
Line your walkway with hanging electric lanterns. Just imagine your lush garden lined with beautiful lanterns, all lit up on a lovely spring night. There are thousands of designs and style outdoor lanterns you can choose from. Plus, once you have lanterns professionally installed, they are fairly easy to maintain and if you choose the right type of long lasting light bulbs you won’t have to worry about constantly changing burnt bulbs.
If hanging lanterns aren’t the kind of outdoor electrical upgrades you’re looking for, try lining your walkway with accent lights. Accent lights can either be embedded in the ground or above ground with lights that almost look like little lamps, stuck in the ground. Both options offer unlimited possibilities for style and design so you can choose the best option to fit your personal style. Many people like to opt for the in-ground lighting option because this option makes lawn maintenance easier.
When you hear string lights, you probably think Christmas lights, but string lights offer so much more possibilities than that! Just imagine relaxing on your porch or garden at night, with a beautiful display of string lights hanging overhead.
