The holidays in Charlotte are a wonderful time of year thanks to our mild weather, so there are plenty of outdoor activities that can still be enjoyed outdoors — like tossing the football around after Thanksgiving dinner even in the evening. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte can set up perimeter and landscape lighting that will enable tossing the ball around, and all sorts of fun, family-friendly games like horseshoes or even a cornhole battle with guests. If you want to show off your outdoor fireplace or fire pit, we can provide lighting in those specific areas that will make it easy for everyone to hang out and enjoy some marshmallows and a hot chocolate.

We service everything we install, so be sure you are holiday ready by contacting us for an appointment to check the health of your system NOW. We will make sure your bulbs, fixtures, timer and wires are all working as they should. If you’ve got old-fashioned halogen bulbs, we can change them out to low consumption LED ones that can save you money in the long-term since they have a 50,000+ hour average lifespan.  If you need additional lights, we can add fixtures to your existing system from our broad offering of MADE IN THE USA metal fixtures that are made especially for us under our exacting standards. They are commercial grade and made to last unlike the cheap housings made for the big box stores with plastic parts and inferior quality.

Spotlight on 2013: The year’s most popular trends

As we wrap up another great year at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte, we’d like to thank all of our wonderful clients again for helping us light up Charlotte with beautiful, one-of-a-kind designs and recap our favorite outdoor lighting trends of 2013.

Smaller homes can look larger with professional outdoor lighting.

LED outdoor lighting offers a brighter, balanced look for your home.

Making the switch to LED

The biggest trend we noticed in Charlotte this year is that a majority of our clients chose LED bulbs for new outdoor lighting systems. We highly recommend these high-quality bulbs, not only because they offer a brighter, balanced look that compliments the overall lighting design, but because they’re a wise investment. LED bulbs use less energy than halogen bulbs to produce a stunning lighting effect, and the lifetime of the bulb is expected to last decades. Between a lower electricity bill and virtually no maintenance/replacement costs, it’s no wonder LED outdoor lighting was one of the most popular trends in 2013.

Entrance lighting really makes your home pop — and it looks even better in LED!

Another major achievement we want to make sure we highlight this year is our one-of-a-kind entrance lighting. This year, we converted 4 large entrances from halogen bulbs to LED. In addition to immediately brightening up the whole area and creating a warmer welcome to the neighborhood, our experts estimate the return on investment for clients who choose LED is approximately 3 years, keeping in mind the energy savings and maintenance benefits detailed above.

It’s just about that time of year again – If your New Years resolution is to save some money or just get some home improvement tasks done, LED outdoor lighting is the perfect investment for you. Happy holidays from Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte, and we look forward to helping you enjoy an even brighter 2014!
