Bring your Charlotte Home and Property into its Best Light in 2016 with the Benefits of Outdoor Lighting!

2016 is here and it’s time to finally stop ignoring your outdoor landscape lighting! Incorporating a well-designed illumination plan to your home and yard is equally as imperative as all those other New Year’s resolutions you’ve made like reducing your waistline a few inches, starting an exercise regime and updating the bathroom. There is no better time to get a nifty new outdoor lighting system put in, or add to an existing one you already have.

Charlotte entryway lighting (2)If you’ve overlooked brightening those gloomier reaches of your property for several years, it’s now time to enhance your current system to give you increased light so that you have a practical lighting scape throughout all of your property. The benefit is that it will improve the security level of your house by brightening the parts of your property for the bad guys who are looking for an easy place to hide while they break into your home. Good lighting prevents thieves from coming to your property and keeps them moving on to an easier target.

Give the Gift of Charlotte Outdoor Lighting

Give the gift of outdoor lighting this year.

Give the gift of outdoor lighting this year.

So many gifts that we give have a very limited lifespan. Technology toys become obsolete so quickly and many other gifts break or go out of style in a matter of months. A Charlotte outdoor lighting system is a gift you can give yourself and your home that will pay dividends for many years to come– perhaps even for as long as you own your home.

 

The first thing you will notice after installation of your new custom-designed system is how great it makes your home look from the street. As you pull up in front of your house or into your driveway after dark, you will feel a little more relaxed and at peace. Your home is welcoming you back with its brightness and warmth. Others will notice the change as well; neighbors and friends will comment on how great your home looks– did you have work done?

 

Once spring rolls around, you will find that you are spending more time out in the yard. The landscaping and garden look terrific and it’s much easier and more fun to spend time out on the patio or deck. Families that have a lighted outdoor living area are out in the yard more often and stay there for longer stretches of time. High quality lighting is the most important component to enjoying your outdoor living spaces. Your lighting is buying you extra time with friends and family.

 

Outdoor lighting makes your home look good all year long.

Outdoor lighting makes your home look good all year long.

Too many homeowners wait until the last few weeks before they put their home on the market to make the improvements that they have always wanted for their property. Make sure you make the upgrades that will improve your quality of life at home now so that you can enjoy them. Wonderful amenities like Charlotte landscape lighting should be something you purchase and use yourself, not just pass along to your home’s next owner.

 

Give Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte a call so we can show you what an investment in outdoor lighting will mean to your life and home.

Making Your Holidays Brighter and Better with Charlotte Outdoor Lighting

With each new experience we have the opportunity to embrace the best things about it and to take away lessons that will help improve our future experiences. Hopefully your Thanksgiving was filled with family, friends, good food, and plenty of time to relax. Thinking back on it, what things would you change to make your next holiday even better?

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives - Brantley Front Entry

The front of the house can create a warm and welcoming atmosphere with outdoor lighting.

 

Starting with the arrival of guests to your home, was the front of the house well-lit, creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere? Quality Charlotte architectural lighting makes your house stand out like a beacon of hospitality. When your visitors walked toward the entryway with their contributions to the evening’s feast, could they easily see the right path to take? Proper walkway lighting not only protects against falls, it lets your guests know how much you value their safe arrival.

 

Homes with professional Charlotte outdoor lighting need very little extra attention to prepare to greet the holiday season. The yard and facade already look bright and festive. Many homeowners spend a good portion of their Thanksgiving weekend pulling lights out of storage and testing them before stringing them around trees and along rooftops. An investment in a permanent landscape lighting system buys you extra free time that you can spend on favorite pursuits like watching football or playing it out in the yard with the kids.

Charlotte Outdoor Lighting Makes a Great Holiday Gift

An investment in the beauty, safety and value of your home is a good idea any time, but it can be especially meaningful during the holiday season. When you install a professional Charlotte outdoor lighting system, you are improving the quality of life at your home all year long.

Let a professional design your outdoor lighting system.

A well-designed architectural lighting plan will include your decorating ideas for your home. Whether you hang wreaths in December or display flags on the big oak in your front yard, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte will make sure that everyone can appreciate your sense of style. You will be able to see your beautiful home accessories day or night.

 

There is nothing more warm and welcoming than arriving at a well lit house. When you incorporate Charlotte architectural lighting into your property, you let friends and family know that you are always happy to see them. Day or night, every month of the year, you leave a light on for them.

 

Outdoor lighting increases safety all year long

Outdoor lighting increases safety all year long.

Strings of blinking lights wrapped around trees are fun, but they do little to improve the safety of your home. Trip and fall injuries are usually preventable. The first step in avoiding this common problem is making sure that walkways and stairs are easy to see. By illuminating areas where there is a change in elevation, like doorways, gates, and patios, you make movement safer for everyone. It’s a great way to show you care.

 

The one group of potential visitors who won’t appreciate your Charlotte landscape lighting, is burglars. Home security professionals recommend that you light shadowed areas close to your home to take away possible hiding places. Everyone likes to see Santa bringing a big bag of gifts. No one wants to see the Grinch taking everything out of your house. Quality exterior lighting is one of the best security features money can buy and that’s one of the best gifts you can give yourself and your family.

What Does an Outdoor Lighting Pro Bring to the Table?

Landscape lighting done professionally adds value to your home.

Landscape lighting done professionally adds value to your home.

If you have ever tried your hand at another person’s job, you know the potential pitfalls you can run into when you are attempting a new task with unfamiliar tools. Charlotte landscape lighting is a classic example of a project that is deceptively difficult for the average homeowner. Fortunately, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte can help you out.

 

One advantage that outdoor lighting design professionals have is that they are experienced at thinking in three dimensions. When they approach facade lighting, they work their way up and down and side to side, always considering special architectural features that create a feeling of depth. Your home isn’t flat and your lighting shouldn’t make it look that way.

 

Every home gets a custom design to highlight their best features.

Every home gets a custom design to highlight their best features.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte also understands that your home doesn’t exist in a vacuum. Our experienced exterior lighting designers give careful consideration to your entire property and how your house looks within that environment. If you have outdoor living spaces, gardens or outbuildings, they will work to create a design that integrates all the parts of your property into one comprehensive and attractive plan.

 

There are dozens of tricks, tools and specialty lighting techniques that our pros regularly use to make their projects really stand out at night. Moon lighting, for instance, creates the effect of a bright full moon shining down through the trees onto your property, regardless of how big the actual moon may be on any given night. Sometimes even we barely notice that the light comes from a fixture and not the sky. It’s extremely difficult to pull off a special effect like moon lighting if you are an amateur.

 

Our solid copper fixtures blend in with their surroundings.

Perhaps the biggest advantage the professional has in Charlotte outdoor architectural lighting is knowing which tools to use when. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte has access to reliable, reputable suppliers and only uses the highest quality brass, copper and heavy-duty pvc lighting fixtures handcrafted for exterior use. We know when a well light should be used instead of a spot light (or something else entirely). We also have an eye for potential nighttime safety hazards and make them our highest priority.

 

Exterior home lighting is an investment in your property that will pay dividends in increased safety, security and curb appeal. Give us a call for a free consultation and we will show you the professional advantage only Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte can give you.

Don’t Wait To Turn The Light On

Do you remember the old slogan from the Tom Bodett commercials for Motel 6? Whether or not that motel chain is your cup of tea, the warm, folksy promise that Bodett offered at the end of every ad: “We’ll keep the light on for you,” really resonates. Leaving the light on is a timeless way of telling friends and family that you care about them and want them to arrive safely.

Your Charlotte landscape lighting is an welcoming invitation to your guest.

Your Charlotte landscape lighting is an welcoming invitation to your guest.

 

Regardless of your stage of life, Charlotte outdoor lighting offers so much to the people who live in and visit your home. Toddlers and young children often fear the dark and approach a building much more confidently when it is well lit. Whether they are your children, your grandchildren or even your great-grandchildren, you will want to make the path to your house warm and welcoming.

 

Teenagers are notorious for their inexperienced driving and late night arrivals. By lighting your driveway, you will help them navigate it safely, regardless of what time they come or go. You may find yourself staying up late to watch for their car returning from an ice cream run or a party. When the yard and doorways are lit, you won’t have to squint and peer out the window. You will know for sure if they made curfew or not.

 

Lighting your driveway with landscape lighting brings guests in and sends them off safely.

Lighting your driveway with landscape lighting brings guests in and sends them off safely.

Trips and falls are not fun at any age, but they can be especially dangerous for elderly relatives. By keeping the entrances and exits to your home well maintained and adequately lighted, you help to mitigate that danger. After daylight savings time ends and the nights grow longer, Charlotte exterior lighting grows more important with each passing day.

 

Each night when I let the dog out before I go to sleep, I am always very happy to have a way to monitor his “progress” as he sniffs about the yard. If you have a procrastinator like mine, you will be very glad to have a way to know when the business of the evening has been accomplished. I believe my lights also deter other dog owners from stopping at my yard on their evening constitutional.

 

Your friends and family are the most important part of your life. Don’t wait to turn the light on for them. Call Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte and your landscape lighting will extend that invitation to the each and every night.

Outdoor Lighting for After the Snowstorm

As you know, snowstorm Pax arrived in Charlotte last week. It  really came down out there! Schools were closed, businesses are sent their workers home, and we were all hunkered down. Hopefully, you were by a fireplace. While it seemed like Puxatawnee Phil might have been lying earlier this month while we were out enjoying the sun and mild temperatures, last week we have no doubt he was telling the truth. Even though the storm drove us back indoors, warmer weather is right around the corner. We do, after all, live in North Carolina. When spring finally comes, be sure you are ready to escape into the outdoors, and be sure you can spend as much time there as you want. This can all be made possible with outdoor lighting.

 

Get your outdoor living spaces ready for spring time use with outdoor lighting.

Get your outdoor living spaces ready for spring time use with outdoor lighting.

Whether you want to light the front of your home or extend the hours you can use your deck, gazebo, fire pit, or garden, outdoor lighting adds beauty, functionality, and safety to your property. Not only does illuminating the front of your home help prevent trips and falls as you walk to the door, it attracts the eyes of those strolling down the street and welcomes guests when they arrive. Deck and patio lighting allows you to use these areas far into the night and can create a variety of moods in your outdoor living spaces. Fire pit area lighting can help facilitate conversation since you will be able to see the faces of those across the pit from you, and it can also help you avoid stepping on the marshmallow bag. Nothing elevates the look of your garden more than garden lighting. Carefully illuminated trees, foliage, and flowers inspire relaxation and a sense of peace. Sounds enticing, doesn’t it? Especially today.

 

Be sure your home is ready when the snow melts.

Be sure your home is ready when the snow melts.

The outdoors are beautiful, and I know you want to preserve that beauty. With advancements in LED outdoor lighting technology, you can minimize your impact on the environment while you enjoy it. The high quality LEDs from Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte are indistinguishable from traditional halogen lights, consume 80% less energy, and last up to 25 years. You won’t have to sacrifice light quality to fulfill your dedication to the world around you.

 

Yes, there was a lot of snow on the ground and luckily it did melt fast and soon we will be enjoying warm, spring weather. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte has the industry experience you need to turn your outdoor lighting visions into reality and the ability to maximize the time you can enjoy the outdoors. Give us a call.
