Charlotte outdoor lighting enhances your outdoors during every season!

Charlotte landscape lighting in the winterOutdoor lighting is one of the few outdoor improvements that provides year-round enjoyment, no matter what the season, or what Mother Nature dishes out. Keep in mind that outdoor lighting, unlike other genres of exterior additions, isn’t just about the warm weather months, it’s a benefit that gives you four seasons of beauty and allure, and aids in function, during all seasons. The Charlotte area has had it’s fair share of cold temperatures and inclement weather lately. Even when temperatures dip into the single digits, or your property is coated in a blanket of snow or ice, your landscape can take on a magical presence thanks to outdoor lighting.

Outdoor Lighting in the Winter

If you can’t go outside on a very cold night, you can still sit indoors and enjoy the majesty of your property through your back windows all lit up in splendor.

Just as the famous prose from Skakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet ..”But, soft! what light through yonder window breaks.”  this also defines the benefits of having outdoor lighting during the late fall and winter here in the Queen City perfectly! If you can’t go outside on a very cold night, you can still sit indoors and enjoy the majesty of your property through your back windows all lit up in splendor. Curling up with a good book in the living room while gazing outside will certainly have a calming effect that can be extremely relaxing after a busy day.

Our outdoor lighting is designed to take advantage of the changing seasons and dramatically improves your lifestyle — both indoors and out. During the warm weather months it enhances all the fun associated with outdoor entertaining, BBQ’s, al fresco dining, late night swims by the pool and more. In the cooler months, outdoor activities such as gatherings by your outdoor fireplace or fire pit with a cup of hot chocolate and even the ease of outdoor food preparation and dining is enhanced.

Safety is another benefit of outdoor lighting at your Charlotte home. Outdoor lighting will  make your property easier and safer to maneuver when it comes to being able to clearly see wet or icy areas that may be on your walkways and sidewalks. Illuminating your garage and the darker corners of your property also deters crime and promotes the appearance as if someone is always 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.

Professional Charlotte landscape lighting will create a feeling of warmth and celebration even before your guests ring the doorbell. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte can make that happen. Call us for a free consultation.

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.

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.

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.
