Proper Home Lighting and Your Family’s Safety

Posted on February 2, 2012

Some homeowners have never stopped to consider the connection between proper lighting and family safety. When the exterior of a house is bright, it serves to deter criminal mischief. Having motion lighting installed by a licensed and insured company is an excellent way to begin making your home less attractive to thieves. Other lighting that adds to a safer home environment includes landscape lighting and pathway lighting. These not only make the home less likely to be burglarized but also make it less likely that a fall will occur.

Having security lighting installed on the outside of the home is a good place to begin making changes that will increase family safety, but lighting on the inside of the home matters just as much. Dark, shadowy areas around the home are hazardous for aging residents with failing eyesight. Many homeowners need to add lighting in several places to prevent eye strain and reduce the chance of an accident. Poor lighting can lead to falls, medication errors, and mistakes in the kitchen.
