How to make an Impact with your Driveway Lighting

Driving into a well-lit driveway after a long day can give you a feeling of truly being at home, whilst also helping to reduce the amount of accidents due to poor visibility.  Great driveway lighting can also make your home easier to find for new visitors and enhance your beautiful landscape and gardens.

Before looking at some lighting options that will shine a light on your driveway, and make a real impact on the exterior aesthetic of your home, let’s look at some of the reasons good driveway lighting is important.

Why is good driveway lighting so important?

Increased safety – An obvious one, but the right driveway lights can provide the necessary illumination to make a driveway or pathway safer, reducing the chances of trips and falls.

Increased security – Having a well-lit driveway or garden can enhance the security of your property and deter potential intruders.

Makes your home more visible – By installing lights along your driveway, or even selectively placed at the start of your driveway, it will make your home more visible from the street, and so, much easier for visitors to find.

Create a visual impact – Good driveway lighting creates visual appeal, and a great first impression for visitors to your home.

Guide traffic – Having lights along your driveway really helps guide and direct new visitors to your home and where the front door and parking options are located. This helps your visitors, but also helps protect any surrounding lawn or garden areas from vehicle or foot traffic damage.

Driveway Lighting Tips

Lastly, a few useful tips to consider when looking at installing or upgrading your driveway lighting.

  1. If you are planning to install a new driveway, consider recessed lighting during the installation process.
  2. Monitoring sensors or security lights should be positioned near the garage and entry doors for increased security.
  3. Include driveway lighting in your overall landscaping and design of your home, creating a seamless flow throughout your home and gardens.
  4. Homes with short drives can easily make an impact by fixing outdoor wall lights close to the front door or on pillars.
  5. Up lighting is perfect for highlighting your landscape and lighting up your driveway.
  6. Solar lights are a great option if you are not wanting to install electrical cabling down a long driveway. When placing your lights remember to take into consideration trees and bushes which may cast shadows over your lights and hinder their ability to charge.
  7. Placing simple lighting options, like string lights, in your tree or shrubs can provide a magnificently warm and inviting glow for guests.
