Has the following scenario happened to you at some point in your life? You’re invited to a friend’s home for a nighttime get-together. You appreciate the friendly invitation, and look forward to the evening.
But it doesn’t get off to a good start. Because once you’ve parked your car, you find that you’re forced to navigate a dark and murky pathway to your friend’s front door.
Is there a slick spot waiting to ambush you? A black cat lurking to trip you up? A child’s roller skate perfectly positioned to provide a nasty slip?
Who knows? You can’t see!
You Don’t Do That to Your Guests, Do You?
Homeowners don’t intentionally leave their guests in the dark. They just don’t think about it. After all, they know their property like the back of their hand. So they don’t have any difficulty at all in navigating a pathway that’s less than well lit.
That’s why it’s a good idea to occasionally evaluate your outdoor lighting. Try to envision yourself arriving at your home after dark, perhaps for the very first time.
Is every step from parking to threshold lit with crystal clarity?
If not, that’s a problem that could potentially result in a serious injury. And though that murky walk you impose upon your visitors is quite unintentional, it’s really rather rude.
