Outdoor lighting to beautify your home's exterior

Give the exterior of your home a boost with these trends in outdoor lighting!


Outdoor lighting is a great way to add depth to a home without spending a lot of money. Interior designer Kimberley Seldon shares three beautiful outdoor lighting trends at every price point!

1. In-ground lighting

This is a simple and inexpensive way to make the exterior of your home feel significantly larger. You can light along your driveway or walkway by simply drilling a hole in your existing pavers and dropping in a low voltage, LED light. These lights will not get damaged by walking or driving over and they do not heat up so they are safe if you have children or pets! This trend works beautifully in stone as well as wood which makes it perfect for lighting a dock or pool area.

2. Illumination for shrubs

Greenery gives the exterior of a home character and is a beautiful feature that should be showcased not only during the day but at night as well. There are many great options that are quick and easy to install yourself! You do not need to spend a lot of money either – there are endless inexpensive lighting options that can be incorporated around any shrub to add gorgeous illumination around the whole house.

3. Drop-down fixtures

People are always looking to transform their outdoor spaces into more of a living area and the perfect way to achieve this is to hang an outdoor light fixture. This trend allows you to have fun with lighting while adding a personal touch to your space. You can use anything from a chandelier, to hanging fixtures that come in all different price points that will make your space look absolutely beautiful!
