Live, light, love your space


Make the most of your outdoor living area


Just because it's already dark by the time you get home from work, school, or shopping, you don't have to forgo enjoying quality outdoor living and entertaining. To get the most enjoyment out of your outdoor space during cozy holiday-time evenings make sure your outdoor lighting is working properly. For the comfort and safety of you, your family, and guests, start by adding lights to dark areas and paths or steps. Consider installing sconces to frame doorways, and redirect floodlights so that they do not shine directly into visitors' faces. Most importantly, make sure all exterior lighting is wet rated.
