The most common types of home illumination lights are uplights and downlights. Uplights are lights placed at ground level with the lights aiming upward to highlight focal points in the landscape, such as trees, signs or architectural features. These lights not only highlight features from the outside, but they also provide for an extension of the interior living spaces at night. Downlights are lights placed above an object or area and aimed downward to imitate natural light and simulate moonlight, or to provide security to an area, such as a back entrance.
Brite Nites offers a number of different finishes and shapes for your uplights and downlights so that you can maintain a consistent decorative theme throughout your home’s exterior. From aluminum and copper to brass and bronze, you’ll find a finish that fits your style. Your home’s curb appeal and security will instantly increase with the simple addition of uplights and downlights.
