The House of Lights and Home Accents team can transport customers into an exciting new world where lighting, design and fashion all come together. Fashion has taken on an influential new role in home design by inspiring the colors, shapes and textures that create the unique mood and atmosphere inside and outside of your home.

Before selecting outdoor lighting, consider the key architectural and landscaping elements of your home. By adding different sources of light at varying heights, your exterior will come alive at night.

The exterior of your home is the first thing guests see, so it’s important to address it and make sure it gives a good impression. Is it welcoming? Is the lighting well-placed so people approaching can safely enter and leave your home? Is it attractive? All of these are important questions to help you when selecting exterior lighting for your home.

Don’t undersize lanterns. A common mistake when selecting exterior lanterns is to undersize them. A good rule to follow is the lanterns should be ¼ the size of the door they’re being placed next to. For example, if you are putting lanterns on either side of a garage door that’s 8 feet tall, your lanterns should be 2 feet or 24 inches tall.

Exterior lighting is more than just lanterns and pathways. With the Space Coast’s beautiful year-round climate, we’re using outdoor spaces as extensions of our homes. Don’t forget to light patios and those spaces immediately outside your house. You need to light trees (trunks and branches) or vine-wrapped trellises in far corners of your yard. These accents lure guests outdoors and create magical settings for entertaining and relaxing.
