There’s nothing quite like using free solar energy to brighten up a home! Nowadays, the price of every single object under the sun is increasing, which is why it is becoming more and more attractive to take advantage of outdoor solar pole lights.
These are the lighting options that will not only save you on electricity bills but also help you be eco-friendly and keep your home safe at night.
They’re also perfect whether you’re remodeling, modernizing or building a new home! Since they come in all sorts of styles, sizes and qualities, you need to be careful where you invest your money.
Stylistically, you can find outdoor solar lighting options to match your home’s aesthetic. From a tall, stately Georgian mansion to a small Californian bungalow, outdoor solar poles make a great addition to the garden or front yard. To determine the right style for your new lighting fixtures, determine the style of your home as well as the colors that will be used primarily on the exterior of your home, including the roof, siding, and brickwork.
Beige, red masonry, and earth tones work best on solar poles with copper, brass, and bronze-like finishes. If your home is black, gray, or slate, choose posts with white, zinc, nickel, chrome, pewter, and black finishes. Don’t forget the proportions either. Your home may have been built between 1950 and 2004. If so, chances are the outside of your home is fairly flat compared to older or newer homes. Shorter posts are the best option. On a newer or very old house, taller posts will look better. A townhouse also requires larger and smaller proportions for lighting.
It is also important that you place your solar towers outdoors if you want to ensure your family’s safety. If the light bulbs are broken or burned out, it’s time to replace them. Also clean dirty lenses with a soft, damp cloth. If your bulbs are corroding, replace them immediately. Finally, cut branches, shrubs and bushes to avoid slight obstacles.
