Your Fall decor will get more mileage with outdoor lighting

Nashville outdoor lighting enhances seasonal outdoor decorAs the season changes, so does the exterior aesthetics of our homes. From the vibrancy of the deep greens and bright blooms of the summer landscape to the subdued hues of amber and gold as leaves begin to change and landscapes welcome autumn. One popular way we pay homage to the changing seasons is through outdoor holiday decor. Many Nashville front porches and entries are brimming with a bounty of harvest-themed decor already. Wreaths adorned with hints of Halloween will soon mingle alongside pumpkins, scarecrows and colorful mums.

Nashville Halloween LightingOutdoor lighting will ensure you home and landscape is full of curb appeal throughout the year, and will also allow you to get more enjoyment from any seasonal outdoor decorating you do. Imagine the impact outdoor lighting will create when paired with the decor and timely plantings around your home’s front entry. Colors will look bolder, textures will have more dimension and all salutations will be easily legible to guest that come to call — and don’t forget about lighting the way for those trick-or-treater’s who are soon to come calling!

In addition to highlighting your outdoor decor landscape lighting, tree lighting and even architectural lighting can also serve as a stage for the changing seasons. As your landscape changes, leaves change hues and blooms emerge, outdoor lighting can help illuminate each moment as it unfolds.

Autumn in Middle TennesseeLighting makes a huge impact as part of your landscape. Landscape lighting can be used to emphasize a fall garden or a line of deciduous trees that transform from jewel tones in the fall to barren branches in the winter.Even the smallest landscape ornamental will change personalities from spring to fall. Although your outdoor lighting stays in the same place, the area it illuminates evolves, as does the scenery.

The benefits of outdoor lighting go well beyond beautification and aesthetic enhancement. Lighting also aids in providing a more safe and secure setting for you and your family to enjoy. This includes having a more secure area to enjoy outdoor activities and relax. Security lighting such as path lighting can even makes the trip to your front door more secure because you no longer have to muddle around at a dark entrance to find your keys or while dropping shopping bags.The addition of lighting will make ease, peace of mind and convenience as a way of life. Experts are also quick to point out that outdoor lighting reduces the chances of falling victim to crime because a well-lit home, or business, is less likely to become the target of a break-in.

Autumn in Middle Tennessee

Although preference of LED over halogen outdoor lighting is really a matter of choice. A higher percentage of our clients opt to go with LED. It is true that LED is more energy-efficient, long-lasting and eco-friendly than traditional outdoor lighting systems; but did you also know LED is more durable? That’s right! LED lighting makes the perfect candidate for outdoor lighting because it holds up better to the harsh elements and the extreme hot and cold of seasonal changes. In additon, since LED is a UV free source of light it is less likely to attract nuisance insects. This means the insects that are drawn to your front porch or outdoor living space by light are reduced making outdoor living more enjoyable for everyone!

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville Can Upgrade or Expand Your Outdoor Lighting, No Matter Who Installed It!

Brentwood TN architectural lightingWe aren’t persnickety about getting the job done at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville. If you want to upgrade, tweak or expand your existing outdoor lighting system, we are up for the task no matter who installed it—even a competitor’s system! That’s right, other lighting contractors may not want to touch outdoor lighting installed by another company, but that’s only because they don’t have the expertise to do it. They are afraid of what they may find or have to deal with, but our techs have seen it all (and have fixed every imaginable problem we have encountered), so it’s a no-brainer for us!

Chase away the winter blues with beautiful backyard views through outdoor lighting!

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives tree lightingIf you are looking out your home’s back windows and there is a dark void, you are missing a fabulous opportunity to extend the dimension, depth and view of your backyard through the use of professional landscape lighting. Wouldn’t you rather see your entire backyard elegantly illuminated so you can still enjoy it on a cool night while you are sitting in the comfort of your home with a good book in your hand?

Many of our customers come to us only thinking about adding outdoor landscape lighting to the front of their home, or only adding architectural lighting to their home’s front facade.

A lifeless winter landscape can get a good dose of drama with outdoor lighting that can make every season look like an evening postcard from your windows. We can uplight your tree branches to give them an exciting and ethereal look that will make them dazzle even though they are bare of leaves. We can even add a downlit moonlight effect that can make your lawn shimmer and play up interesting shadows.

Nashville Decorative Outdoor Lighting Delivers Endless Evening (and Daytime) Appeal with a New Twist

Nashville cafe-inspired outdoor lightingDecorative outdoor lighting is the new rage in design. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville has a broad range of chic and trendy lights that offer something totally different from what traditional landscapers offer that come from those big home improvement stores. Our fixtures are custom-made specifically for us and proudly made in America with high quality commercial parts. We do not sell or install inferior made products made of plastic or other low-grade components that won’t survive the season before needing replacement. Our fixtures stand the test of time, and Mother Nature, to provide years of unbridled enjoyment.

Nashville festival lighting

If you are still sporting an outdated or aging halogen outdoor lighting system, it’s time to check out how much outdoor lighting has changed in recent years. Modern LED bulbs cut down on energy consumption and provide a long life, and they come in all sorts of unique genres that give lots of different benefits and appeal.

Festoon style permanent festival lighting in the Gulch.

Festoon style permanent festival lighting in the Gulch.

Permanent Festoon lights (aka festival or cafe lights) can be installed across a covered porch or deck and provide plenty of visibility as an overhead light source that delivers a swagged romantic lighting effect. They have a party feel like you’d see in outdoor festival settings or that lovely corner cafe you visiting while on vacation — we offer them in either white or in colored bulbs that are housed in small globes and we can change out the lights whenever you want a totally different effect such as during the holiday season.

Nashville Outdoor Orb LightingOrb lights are a twist on festival lighting that kick it up a notch since the globe housing that surrounds is much bigger. You can choose either 10, 12 or 16 inch globes in size (or vary them and mix it up) and it looks like these ethereal spheres are floating through the air in a mystical way. You can also get these in white, clear or in multiple colors and the effect is truly breathtaking and unusual.

Nashville decorative outdoor lighting Normally, we hide our ground level fixtures so they are very hard for anyone looking around your property to see. In some cases, the fixtures are just as pretty as the light they cast and have incredible artistic value—and this is absolutely the case with our Attraction lighting series. Custom made for us; these dazzling metal fixtures have incredible sculptural flair that sends rays of light dancing around your walkways, a retaining wall or even your home’s walls. If you are fascinated by the use of light as an art source, then these lights are right up your alley as they throw immensely interesting patterns of twirling light around an outdoor space. They even look fantastic during the day thanks to their interesting shapes and cut-outs, and no can argue how decadent these look in comparison to boring landscape lights you see in most yards.

Decorative lighting can become a work of art in the garden and landscape.

If that’s not enough for you, our Starry Light fixtures uses hologram technology to shoot pinpoints of light that can be elegantly sprayed all over your home, trees or pool. They are perfect during Christmas time because it avoids the nightmare of wires and string lights that have to be taken down after the holidays. This clever light fixture plugs right in and comes in red, green, purple and blue, and it casts a fantasy land of shimmering light wherever you want it. Take a peek:

Make your outdoor living spaces safer this season with Nashville deck and patio lighting.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville deck lighting

Deck lighting will enhance the safety and function of your deck.

Deck and patio lighting brings your backyard to life after the sun goes down while improving outdoor safety. With May being  the North American Deck and Railing Association’s Deck Safety Month, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville would like to share with you ways lighting can increase the function, style and safety of your deck or other outdoor living space.

Outdoor lighting, specifically deck and patio lighting, is especially helpful when installed by stairs risers, exits and handrails. We also use deck lighting to create ambiance within areas that are being used in the evening. For example, pillar lights help define perimeters and look amazing when mounted directly onto brick and wood columns.

Professional deck lighting creates a custom look for your outdoor living space with the dramatic play of light and shadows providing the right ambiance for your outdoor events and gatherings. This proper lighting is achieved by using a combination of lighting styles to accommodate different purposes. The size of the area to illuminate along with its function help to determine the types and number of lights you need for your deck lighting. Spot lights can be used in task areas, such as outdoor kitchens, while accent lighting creates a soft, inviting illumination in seating areas. Recessed lighting incorporated into steps and lights placed around walkways and doorways enhance safety.

wall_deck_post_light_sconce

A well-lit deck makes your outdoor living experience safer.

 Increased visibility enhances safety and is attained with the right amount of light for the use of the space without distraction. Low-voltage lighting is best for deck lighting. It illuminates your custom deck without being overpowering or making it difficult to enjoy the night sky. This type of lighting will also prevent you from annoying your neighbors with intrusive exterior lighting. 

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives deck and patio lighting

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives deck and patio lighting.

When creating an outdoor lighting system, we focus on the effect, not the fixture. While the effect of our lighting design will increase the curb appeal of your home, our exclusive high quality fixtures add style and are a cut above the rest. Our corrosion-proof outdoor light fixtures, wires and lamps can weather the toughest outdoor conditions. You’ll love the way the solid copper and brass takes on a rich patina over time, blending beautifully into your landscape. With a long life expectancy and a consistent light output, we’re so confident of our equipment’s performance and durability that we offer unmatched warranty coverage.

Adding outdoor lighting to your deck space will extend function and style while increasing safety when using your outdoor spaces in the evening. Memorial Day kicks off the summer season in just a few short weeks — have your outdoor spaces such as decks, patios, and pools ready for the occasion! With deck lighting sundown will no longer dictate the end of your outdoor living enjoyment!

Don’t let your beautifully cultivated Nashville garden and landscape vanish in the cover of night

Outdoor Lighting perspectives rose garden lightingYou’ve worked so hard to make your property look its best, so why allow it to disappear under a veil of darkness? Artistically installed landscape and garden lighting can make your exterior spaces feel like an outdoor room filled with natural moonlight enhanced focal points. With a custom designed and professionally installed garden and landscape lighting plan by Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville, the fruits of your labor  will not only shine in the darkness, but your outdoor living areas will come to life.

Zen inspired landscape lighting

With the utmost care we provide exterior lighting designs which highlight your home’s landscaped surroundings, drawing special attention to prized plantings and trees. In the evening as colors seem richer and more vivid — lighting adds depth, texture and dimension not typically visible during the day. Imagine fragrant night-blooming jasmine glowing in the moonlight-like illumination of a path light as its small tubular blossoms permeate the night air with its exotic sweetness, or the papery silver-gray bark of the river birch appearing almost sterling as tree lighting accentuates and adds drama to its umbrella-like canopy of diamond-shaped, double-toothed leaves.

Several night-blooming varieties of flowers and plants beg to be cast in the warm glow of landscape and garden lighting, for example: Brugmansia – a small tree with hanging flowers, Night Phlox – a bordering ground cover, Tuberose – opulent flowering bulbs, Japanese Wisteria – a woody vine with clusters of blossoms, and the fragrant Moonflower vine. No matter which type of foliage or floral displays your garden and its surrounding may contain, landscape and garden lighting intensifies their vibrant beauty…matched only by their intoxicating fragrances.

Our own Bob Lyons Sr. goes live on the airways with endless ideas for making this Christmas the merriest!

podcast-logo-Porch Ideas NetworkOutdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville was filling the airwaves last week when our own Bob Lyons Sr. was featured on Porch Ideas Network via podcast with Mary and Dave. The segment featured Christmas Light Decorating Ideas for Your Front Porch and Yard and secrets on creating wonderful holiday light displays and installing outdoor Christmas lights safely.

This informative and fun segment covered every area of holiday lighting, including choosing the colors you like best and desired location of your display. Here’s a peek:

Colorful Nashville Holiday Lighting

Colorful Nashville Holiday Lighting.

“What you first have to decide is what color you want to use or whether you want to use all white or clear. And then you have to decide whether you want to augment it with different features like starbursts, wreaths, garland, or other holiday decorations.” 

“Then you have to decide if it’s better to concentrate on one area of your yard or porch (and do it really well) or broaden out (and possibly not do as good a job overall).”

Nashville lighted stars in trees

The variety of colored LED lighting used in holiday lighting displays was also covered at great length during the segment. In addition, proper spacing of holiday lighting, power requirements, tree wrap holiday lighting and how we combine strings of lights for a cohesive effect were all hot topics!

We can’t divulge ALL our secrets! But you can listen to the full audio program with Bob Lyons Sr. for more lighting tips.
