What are the benefits of exterior lighting for residential properties?

From residential homes to student accommodation, and even HMO’s, there are a number of advantages and benefits to installing exterior lighting. These advantages include:

  • Increasing property safety- exterior lighting, such as motion activated security lighting can help to improve the security and safety of your property as well as the tenants within. This can help deter crime as well and scare off any would be criminals. It can also help your tenants or staff feel safer.
  • Adding practical and well lit areas- residential properties cover a myriad of different types of home, and adding exterior lighting can help to make the most use out of the outdoor area. Whether you need to include a designated smoking area, or you want to create a lovely dining and entertaining space outside, exterior lighting can be used to help achieve this. Not only can this improve the quality of life for tenants in your property, but it can also make your residence more appealing and increase market value too. The type of lighting you could consider includes wall lighting, pillar lighting and even spotlight lighting.
  • Reducing accidents- a well lit outdoor area that allows you tenants to go from a car park, main road or footpath into the property can help to reduce accidents like slips, trips and falls, and increase the overall safety of your property. This can be especially important in dark winter months.
