When it comes to lighting, a homeowner’s focus is often on the interior of the home and how they can improve the kitchen, bedrooms, and other spaces. While this is perfectly acceptable, it’s important not to forget about the exterior of the home and addressing what outdoor lighting needs your property may have. At Lighting Design by Wettstein’s in La Crosse, we have a fantastic selection of outdoor light options, and would love to help you choose your new fixtures.

Ambient Lighting

Your goal may be to transform your backyard from a ho-hum patch of grass to an oasis where you can spend summer evenings with friends and family. You’ll want to set the mood with the right outdoor fixtures and landscape lighting, and while you won’t be aiming to brighten the entire space, you’ll want to be sure there’s enough illumination for every area. If you have a dedicated seating space or a grilling area that you plan to use after dark, outdoor sconces, pathway lights, and other options can help you create the perfect ambiance.

Security Lighting

The other reason for updating your exterior lighting is to ensure that your property is safe after sundown. Motion sensor lights, porch fixtures, and other options will illuminate your home during the night, and this can be a great deterrent to trespassers and other threats. You can put your lights on a timer so that they come on at a certain time each night, and when you come home after sunset, you’ll feel safe walking up to your front door. We have a number of options for the outside of your home, the garage, and other areas that need light.

Choosing the Right Style

Once you’ve decided where you need new fixtures for both ambiance and security, you can begin choosing the style of lighting you want. Perhaps you want Craftsman-style fixtures that match your home’s architecture, or maybe you want something a bit decorative such as Art Glass lighting. Regardless of the style you want, our showroom experts can help you narrow down your choices for the specific fixtures for your home. It’s important to keep in mind that you may have to add or update your exterior wiring to support your new lighting, and if that’s the case, it will require hiring a professional electrician.
