6 Hinkley Hints for creating an all-American outdoor living area:

  1. Go for a look that is pulled together yet casual by using a bright color palette and fun patterns.
  2. Use a combination of interesting fabrics and textures, including tufting and contrast piping, for a crisp touch.
  3. Comfort is key so invest in cozy upholstered outdoor furniture that encourages relaxation.
  4. Ensure the space is well-lit with Hinkley’s coordinating lanterns and landscape lighting so family and friends can continue to enjoy even after the sun goes down.
  5. Place touches of wood and metal to add rustic elegance.
  6. Whimsical accessories in stripes and chevron encourage a subtle patriotic theme without going overboard.

Light your landscape for splendor and safety

You can keep your home safe while enhancing your landscape’s beauty – just improve your outdoor lighting. It expands your outdoor entertaining opportunities, provides better sidewalk illumination for guests, adds a bit of romance to your porch and makes your yard interesting in the evening.

Front entrance Exteriors Prescott II

A well-lit stoop allows you to identify visitors, and gives guests a warm welcome. Choose wall lanterns on either side of the front door that match your home’s look, whether it’s traditional or modern.

Match the wall lanterns on your home’s entrance to ones on either side of your garage door. If part of your house would still be in shadow, illuminate with a spotlight above the garage door. Consider installing a motion sensor on these fixtures, or a photocell that turns the lights on at dusk and off at dawn. This will conserve energy. Be a considerate neighbor – make sure your lights don’t shine directly into your neighbors’ windows.

Steps and pathways Executive home

Path lights or post lanterns will not only add beauty to your home’s exterior, they will also add safety for visitors. Low-level path lights, which spread circular patterns of light, will not only show the way to your front entrance, but can also highlight nearby flower beds, shrubs and ground cover. They can also help define the boundaries of long driveways.

Convert these into romantic retreats with low-voltage lighting. You’ll also be creating outdoor “rooms,” extending your entertaining spaces. Plus, chasing away shadows from these areas adds to your safety. Grills and serving areas, of course, need brighter task lighting, which could be provided by wall-mounted or free-standing lamps.

For all this lighting, experts suggest you buy the best-quality and well-constructed fixtures you can afford. They will last longer and be better values in the long run.
