LED Outdoor Lighting
May Be Ideal for Your PorchLED outdoor lighting may be just what you need to create a calm and serene setting on your front porch. LED lights are ideal for outdoor pendant lighting, recessed can lights, wall mount fixtures, and landscape lighting.
Dave and I like beautiful lighting - both indoors and outdoors. The right kind of lighting can make a huge difference in how your indoor and outdoor spaces look and feel.
The right outdoor lighting warms your porchEver notice how changing the lighting in a room can make such a nice difference in how the room feels? When we replaced the fluorescent lighting in our kitchen with nicer fixtures and bulbs, our kitchen took on such a different feel.
Outdoor lighting is no different. The type of lighting you have on your porch and landscaping makes a huge difference in the curb appeal of your home. So, let's take a closer look at LED outdoor lighting.
Benefits of LED Lighting for Your PorchThe kind people at Best Value LEDs provided us many of the facts we share here.
Costs and Savings Of LED Outdoor LightingProbably the biggest drawback of LED light bulbs for most people is their initial cost. However, once you realize that their life span is much longer then incandescent or CFL bulbs, then you know you can save money several ways.
Over time, you will save in light bulb replacement costs as well as on your electric bill.
Some LED light bulbs produce a blue tinted light, however you can get LEDs that emit the same color of light as your typical incandescent bulbs.

LED lighting - Positive Impacts on Daily LifeLED light bulbs are also ideal for landscape lighting or pathway lighting. Because these bulbs last so long you will hardly ever have to replace them. That is especially helpful when it comes to replacing light bulbs that are out of reach. We all know about those.
Dave and I have several flood lights on the outside of our house that require a 30 foot ladder. How nice it would be to only have to replace those every 10 to 20 years.
And we have tall ceilings in our foyer and living room, too. LEDs, because of their longevity, would be so handy there, too.
