One Fun (and Actually Unique) Way to Boost Your Home’s Curb Appeal

If you’ve been thinking about making a few upgrades to your home recently, you’re definitely not alone. (We for one, have been itching for a change.) Maybe you’ve been working remotely and need a fresh perspective. Maybe you recently moved in and want to make the new place your own. Or maybe you’re into adding something that’ll give your house that certain je ne sais quois to make it stand out (in a good way) from everyone else in the neighborhood. But let’s be real: You don’t want to spend a ton of money or a ton of time. Which is where Trimlight, a patented lighting system you can have installed on your home for permanent year-round lighting, comes in.

Tell Me More.

Here’s the deal: Trimlight’s programmable, customizable and weather-proof lights can be installed not only along your roofline, but also on your patio, gazebo, pergola, deck, or for security lights. Their brilliant, beautiful color will light up your house at night, but they’re barely visible during the day because of a color-matching channel that blends in with your unique roofline, hiding the wires from view and holding the lights securely in place. That way you can leave your lights up all year (no post-Christmas rooftop acrobatics necessary). Plus, they use proprietary LED technology that’s both durable and energy efficient enough to last 20-30 years—and they back it up with a lifetime product warranty.

But How Do I Actually Use Them?

There’s an app for that. It’s called Trimlight Edge and it lets you program up to 16 million different color combinations and patterns. Set your lights on a timer function so they come on and turn off at the days and times you specify, or use the calendar feature to pick your patterns months in advance. You can quite literally set it and forget it. We suggest you get creative and celebrate every single holiday from Valentine’s Day to Fourth of July, every sporting event—think: Super Bowl, March Madness, the Masters—and any other special occasion you and your family can dream up. (Your kids will love coming up with new combos.) And you can even flex your maestro muscle: Trimlight comes with music capability so the lights will play along with your tunes using your phone. Plus, it’s Alexa and Google Home compatible and uses cloud-based technology so you can connect to your system wherever you are.
