Floodlights emanate an intense and widely spread beam of light, that’s incredibly effective at providing intense illumination over a large area. Their thorough coverage makes them ideally suited as security lighting instruments. Floodlights are great for making your Virginia home safer during the night and can be linked to motion sensor to expose (and ideally scare off) any unwanted, nocturnal intruders. Floodlights are typically placed roughly 9ft high, which helps them cover as much area as possible and keeps them out of the reach of ne’er do wells.

Wall Lights

If you’re looking for something less intimidating and more aesthetically functional, you might want to consider installing wall mounted outdoor lighting instruments. These soft and welcoming lights are typically used to highlight specific areas of your Virginia home’s architecture, and can also be used to bookend doorways and windows.

Ceiling-Mounted Lights

These ceiling mounted outdoor lighting fixtures are usually installed above an entryway or an outdoor gathering point, such as a patio, and come in a dazzling array of shapes, sizes, styles, and color. They can be a simple and quirky as a lone, hanging light bulb, or as ornate as an antique lantern. This type of outdoor lighting instrument is well-suited for places with low ceilings, providing subtle accent lighting or focused light on a small area.

Walkway Lighting

This type of outdoor lighting fixture is usually employed to create a visually pleasing guide for any walkways or paths that run across your Virginia landscape. This is particularly useful during the night when guests may have trouble discerning where a path lies and could stumble off. These small lights are typically styled to look like small lampposts but can come in a wide variety of designs and configurations.
