The Vital Functions Of Attractive Outdoor Lighting
A lack of exterior lighting can actually be inviting. Unfortunately, a dark landscape and home exterior might be inviting the wrong crowd. In addition to the numerous aesthetic benefits, outdoor lighting is one of the simplest ways to bulk up security for a home and property. We specialize in creating attractive, multi-functioning exterior light schemes that perfectly frame a home’s exterior. Your home is your castle; we work with our clients to put that extra shine on their home life.
As mentioned previously, security experts espouse having a well-lit home and property as being one of the most important safety measures one can take. Unsavory types and crooks tend to seek out dark homes that appear as if no one is home; unfortunately, a dark house doesn’t necessarily mean that a home is unoccupied. Our custom tailored light plans light all important areas to prevent dark blind spots or allow for individuals to use the cover of night to get a closer look at the home. Security oriented lighting doesn’t have to involve the use of generic, blinding lights or motion activated lighting. Even attractive ambient lighting can provide security benefits.
Proper exterior lighting also helps frame steps and walkways to prevent slips and falls, allowing for safe and worry free access to the home during late nights. A well-lit home and yard discourages nuisance wildlife as well.
Premier aesthetics are the basis for all of our home lighting projects. Different areas of the home and yard often require unique lighting choices to properly accentuate them. Dimmable accent lighting is perfect for high use outdoor areas like patios, outdoor grille and kitchen areas where people can use the thekitchenelite utensils a lot more easily, pools, and decks. Warm lighting creates an inviting atmosphere for outdoor dining and social events while providing the proper brightness for common activities.
Homeowners have an incredible variety of lighting options to fit their needs, including a wealth of colors, energy efficient LEDs, portable fixtures, and much more. Solar powered lights are an excellent choice to line driveways and walkways; their portability makes using them easy to use anywhere, anytime. Using lights to display gardens, trees, and other plantings at night is another popular choice. With all the hard work that goes into maintaining attractive landscapes, why not enjoy them at night as well?
Creativity is the king of outdoor lighting. Well placed lighting creates dramatic shadows from trees, architecture, and landscaping. Water features like ponds, pools, and fountains are also ideal canvasses to create colored reflections and beautiful shimmering effects. Homeowners often incorporate lights to enhance outdoor statues and artwork, turning a yard or patio area into a dazzling environment reminiscent of famous parks and art walks.
We also assist homeowners in creating an outdoor light plan to fit seasons and holidays. The right lighting can turn a yard blanketed in fresh snow into an awe inspiring environment full of shadows and shimmer. The changing leaves during the fall season also provide for special lighting opportunities; the peak orange, red, and yellow colors of fall leaves can be enjoyed in the evening with proper light choice and placement.
Putting up Christmas lights no longer requires the use of poor quality, tacky store bought lights. We help customers develop high quality holiday exterior lighting that truly stands out. Holiday lighting can be as simple as perfectly placed, classic white lights or a dizzying mixture of colors and decorations. Our services eliminate the need for our customers to pull out the ladder and go through the tedious—and potentially treacherous—task of placing the lights. Good holiday lighting sets a festive mood for families and guests. We work to enhance the holiday spirit.
Lighting technology is developing at a rapid pace, offering unprecedented design choices and ease of use. In-home and portable lighting controllers give homeowners total control of the outdoor lighting style, ability to turn lights on and off from a distance, dim lights, set timers, and more. The latest in LED lighting technology is particularly notable; LED lights are incredibly energy efficient, have longer lasting bulbs, and can be exceptionally bright if desired.
A beautiful, high functioning outdoor light plan creates an attractive and inviting atmosphere. Lighting is not only an artistic endeavor; it helps provide safety and peace of mind. When it comes to outdoor lighting, we encourage our clients to think big. We use the latest technology and vast selection of lighting options to custom tailor a light plan to our clients’ home and outdoor areas. The spectacular results are something that needs to be seen in person.
