Taking Charlotte Outdoor Living to the Next Level

 Fall and winter are outstanding times to evaluate your home and yard and make arrangements to improve them. During the spring and summer there can be a lot of competition for the best contractors and the best prices. The cooler months are the time when the early birds are thinking about how they want to enjoy their yards next year and making their plans.

 

Professionally designed and installed Charlotte outdoor lighting is frequently underused and undervalued. If you have ever spent an evening relaxing around a fire pit on a well lit paver patio, you know how the lighting elevates the quality of the experience. People aren’t stumbling around in the dark, accidentally swapping drinks or risking a dangerous trip and fall. The patio lighting warmly echoes the light from the fire and improves both the mood and the safety.

 

Charlotte landscape lightingIf you are lucky enough to have a gazebo, trellis or swing in your garden, it is probably one of your favorite parts of your yard. They are wonderful because you can almost surround yourself with nature. When they are carefully and gently lit, you will find that you spend even more time outside enjoying the serenity of the garden. With your lights on a dimmer, you can decide if you want enough light to see the colors of the flower blossoms or read a book or whether you want to keep things dim enough to enjoy the fireflies without losing your footing on your way from the house.

 

Have you invested in a grill or outdoor kitchen big enough to feed the whole clan? Can you see the food while you are cooking it? If you accidentally left this key design detail off your original plans, now is the perfect time to do a project add on. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte can design and install a system that will make all your outdoor cooking and entertaining so much easier and more enjoyable. It’s never too late to add lighting to your outdoor living area… and it’s never too early.

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.

Beat any commercial space with the perfect deck or patio lighting.

Autumn in the South is a welcomed change that brings an array of brightly colored trees and pleasantly cool temperatures. It is a brilliant season tailor made for receptions, tailgates, birthday parties, and several other special events. Yet who has the time or money to spend on finding extravagant venues to host these events? Crowded restaurants are too impersonal, public parks have no ambiance, and overpriced destination spots may be more trouble than they are worth. You want to be able to host the perfect event that can only be made complete by the perfect venue. That’s why Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte proposes turning your very own backyard into the season’s hot spot with outdoor lighting.

By installing strategically placed outdoor lights you can transform the area into something spectacular. Deck lights washing over your gathering area will provide illumination for safety and beauty, giving your guests a place to sit and relax.

More Lights and More Beauty with Charlotte Outdoor Lighting

We’ve all heard the phrase that less is more. Overabundance can create something chaotic and overwhelming. When it comes to outdoor lighting, we couldn’t agree more. However, only investing in the mere basics is not ideal either. There is a perfect balance between too many lights and too few. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte wants to help you find that balance. We also want to make you aware of how going beyond the bare bones necessity can really enhance your home.

Adding additional fixtures can really enhance your home.

Adding additional fixtures can really enhance your home.

Illuminating your home and yard provides safety on top of beauty. When designed and implicated the correct way, outdoor lighting can transform any home into a work of art. In order to achieve that result, more than a few fixtures need to be installed. You may be content with the system you currently have, but take a closer look. Are the textures on the outside of your home being showcased as best as possible? Are your beautiful trees a spectacle even after the sun has set? Take an inventory of all the eye catching, unique parts of your landscape. Then consider how stunning they would be with the proper landscape lighting. There is always something in every yard that deserves a soft, visually enhancing spotlight.

Even a few extra lights can make an area of your yard more inviting

We don’t want to overwhelm your yard with light. It’s not our goal to simply sell as many lighting fixtures to you as possible. We take great pride in designing specific landscape lighting systems that complement. What we want is for your home to go from beautiful to breathtaking as the natural light fades from the sky. Adding a few more outdoor lights here and there can do just that. It doesn’t have to be a gratuitous amount of lights. Sometimes a spotlight here or a well light there embellishes the entire scene.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte is here for you. Give us a call and allow us to upgrade your current outdoor lighting system. We can reassess every piece and find a way to bring new life into your landscape. More lights don’t mean more hassle. It means the opportunity to discover hidden gems and upgrade the overall aesthetic of your home.
