Charlotte Summer Parties Keep Rolling With Good Evening Lighting

The biggest summer holiday is this weekend with the 4th of JulyThe biggest summer holiday is this weekend with the 4th of July just days away. Many families are planning for the celebration as they have been busy wrapping up National Great Outdoors Month that has been going on all June.

Adding light to your outdoor entertainment and garden areas ensures your evening festivities can keep going all night long no matter what the season thanks to good visibility. Not only can we beautifully light up the façade of your home, including the steps, porch and your front door (and even your flag!)—but we can illuminate all those zones that you use most for entertaining such as your deck, patio, pool, outdoor kitchen, walkways and the entire perimeter of your backyard, too! If you’d like to play catch with the kids or battle it out with friends at a game of corn hole, we make sure it’s bright enough to see what you are doing without a harsh, blaring glare.

pool and landscape lighting a beautiful collaboration

There is virtually nothing that you can’t do in the evening outdoors just as easily as if it were daytime with good lighting. Our designers will help you achieve a stunning alfresco look that not only has an elegant and exciting vibe, but also helps you do all the things you like to do while getting a fresh breath of air. What better time to be outdoors than when it cools down, the crickets are chirping and your backyard is a moonlit wonderland? Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte will help you keep all your outside activities going no matter what the hour. You can cook, dine, hang out with friends, swim in the pool or toss the ball with ease with properly placed outdoor fixtures that are made right here in the USA. We don’t sell cheap, big box store grade lighting that deteriorates after only a season or two. Our gorgeous all metal fixtures are made to withstand Charlotte’s hot sun, rain, snow and ice and still look fabulous for many years to come.

At the same time, we extend your opportunity for nighttime fun because you feel comfortable and safe enough to hang out well into the early hours. If you and your guests can see exactly where you are going, it makes getting around your property a breeze.

Let your outdoor areas become an extension of your home, which adds immediate real estate thanks to additional usable square footage. Keep partygoers outdoors so they don’t make a mess inside your home, and can still have an enjoyable time and feel at ease being outside. Your Independence Day party can continue right on through to the fireworks display which everyone can enjoy right on your deck or back patio without a hitch.

Though this style of decorative lighting may seem new but the ideal has been around for centuries. Festival lighting originated as a way to light outdoor areas in honor of outdoor celebrations. Street festivals and fairs filled with music and merriment were often draped in lights for an evening or two to commemorate a significant local event and removed at festivals end.

Permanent festival lighting takes this dramatic lighting effect to a new level because the lighting is permanent which allows you to indulge in its appeal every night. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte has completed many permanent festival lighting installations here in the Charlotte and South Charlotte area in both residential and commercial settings for many happy customers. Calls continue to pour in as more business owners and homeowners are requesting this unique lighting for their backyards, outdoor living spaces and commercial storefronts.

Keep in mind, though similar in nature, all festival lighting is not the same. The string lighting that is offered at many “big-box” stores may appear trendy, it is not designed for longevity or to provide multi-seasonal use.We use commercial-grade lighting products and professional installation on our festival lighting, which include multiple strands of low-voltage LED or incandescent festoon lights.We then professionally install hem over the span of the area we are illuminating. We use cable to support the weight of the electrical wiring when we install permanent festival lighting over an area with a large span; this ensures the safety and the integrity of the system. Our lighting comes in both clear (white), and we also offer multiple colors to choose from.

Orb lights hanging from trees give a magical appearance.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte offers you commercial-quality lighting made right here in the USA with gorgeous and unique designs that are sure to create those “where-did-you-get-those” envious stares in your neighborhood.

We have Festoon light strings that are designed to be permanent and provide a truly unique draping of light overhead that provides plenty of visibility over a covered porch, patio or deck providing a festive flair that gives an outdoor Parisian street cafe vibe. A cable is used to support the weight of the wires for safety and strength.

Festival lighting was added to this outdoor living space to create ambiance and enhance use of the space in the evening.

Similarly, Orb lights are multiple strands of lights that can cross large spans such as above a large outdoor patio, your outdoor kitchen/dining area or draped romantically in a tree. They are much bigger than the lights on festoon strings and you have the option of 10″, 12″ and 16″ globes available in opaque white, multi-colored and clear. When lit up, these globes appear to be floating and offer a truly magical, fairytale appearance.

Sparkler fixtures are truly special because they are custom-made especially for Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte. Holes are cut out of the metal so when the light shines through them, they bounce a fabulous spray of light patterns that dance on pathways, walls and most anything nearby. These fixtures are very distinctive and bring an artistic vibe into the garden like no other.

Charlotte unique outdoor lighting designs

Garden Luminaries are yet another fixture that is completely different. These striking lights look like sculptural art during the daylight hours with their gorgeous shapes and metalwork designs, but at night they take on an otherworldly feel with romantic ambiance. They also cast remarkable shadows of light around a walkway or wall in the darkness that is breathtaking. If you are looking for something to stand out in the twilight, a few of our luminaries will fit the bill.

Don’t forget that we also can retrofit your existing fixtures to be converted and updated to LED bulbs, too. No need to run out and spend money on brand new fixtures if your current fixtures are in good condition and you will benefit from the energy savings that these bulbs provide and their long life.
