Our recent install at 500fifth takes Nashville residential outdoor lighting to a new level

Nahsville Upscale Apartment Outdoor Lighting

Nashville outdoor lighting at 500fifth.

When you think of Nashville residential outdoor lighting you probably picture a beautiful home in Brentwood or Belle Meade or maybe even a quaint farmhouse nestled among acreage in Middle Tennessee. These images are accurate, and with good reason, because Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville specializes in residential, commercial outdoor lighting and holiday outdoor lighting in the Nashville area. However, with the growing trend in urban residential living, Nashville outdoor lighting is popping up amid all genres of housing. From townhouses, condominiums and even upscale apartments.

Nahsville Upscale Apartment Outdoor Lighting

One of our most recent outdoor lighting projects took place at 500fifth Apartments in downtown Nashville. This upscale complex delivers breathtaking views of the city skyline and offers an easy commute to those working downtown.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville was asked to help make the building’s facade come to life through the addition of lighting. We accomplished this project with understated grace as we used up lighting to create the look and feel they had in mind. Through the use of 3000 degree kelvin/200 watt LED up lighting fixtures mounted on custom brackets the entire front facade of the 500fifth becomes a location you immediately want to know more about. The lighting adds dimension, depth and an air of majesty to the building.

Nahsville Upscale Apartment Outdoor Lighting

On this particular project our goal was to illuminate the front facade of the building. However, on many apartment properties there are other facets on the grounds that can also benefit from the addition of outdoor lighting. This can include, but is not limited to, the property’s common areas such as the pool, parking areas, walkways and clubhouse. We have also had great success illuminating the signage located at the entrance to many of the apartments we have lit. Take a look at the areas we illuminated at The Grove Whitworth apartments in Green Hills, TN…

As you can clearly see, Nashville residential outdoor lighting can benefit all types of homes, from apartments to estates and everything in between!

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.

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!

Brentwood TN architectural lighting

Check out this stately home that we recently took on the challenge of a full architectural and landscape revamp to an existing system. Located in beautiful Brentwood, TN, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville gave this property’s  lighting a whole new jolt of pizzazz by adding more light and giving it a much needed upgrade. As you can see, it has extreme WOW-factor now with a dazzling dance between shadows and light.

We are proud to say our work and fixtures absolutely pass the test of time. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville is the ONLY outdoor lighting company in our area that is maintaining systems that we installed 25 years ago! We don’t do outdoor lighting as a sideline other types of work. We aren’t gardeners, landscapers, electricians or irrigation companies that dabble in putting a few fixtures in the ground and adding a timer just to make an extra buck–ALL WE DO IS OUTDOOR LIGHTING!

Our lighting designers and architects are specially trained in the art of casting light in a theatrical and exciting manner. We don’t just shove a fixture in the ground without thought of how light can play up every feature of your home and garden. Everything we do carefully planned and poised to showcase a home’s facades, garden paths, decks, water features, pools, patios and more in a romantic wash of light. We are professional, dependable and we only sell American-made systems and fixtures that will stand the test of time.

Brentwood TN landcape lighting

Brentwood TN landcape lightingIf you are dissatisfied with a system you had installed by another company or it just isn’t working properly, we can solve any problems and get things working right. We can work with within your timing and budget. We are happy to illuminate a single garden bed just as much as we are to light up The Gulch in Music City. If our name is on the project, we do our best no matter what the size of the challenge or who installed it initially.

If your budget is tight, you’d be surprised and how much light we can actually shed on your property even with just a few targeted fixtures. It doesn’t take much to really jazz things up so you can make a great impression in the neighborhood. Of course you get the added value of safety and security thanks to improved visibility, too.

Outdoor festival lighting is all the rave in Nashville — but keep in mind all festival lighting is NOT created equal!

Nashville TN festival outdoor lighting

Festival outdoor lighting recently completed in Nashville, TN, by Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville.

Don’t be fooled into thinking that all festoon, festival and decorative outdoor café lighting is the same! If you compare those made and installed by Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville versus those found at your big box or home improvement stores, you will be amazed at how much betters ours are by a stretch! First of all, our permanent festival lighting is made right here in the USA and is also made to LAST for years, and not just one or two seasons. If you are going to invest in festival overhead lighting, make sure you invest in a product that can stand the test of time and can resist the varied weather here in Nashville; such as the sun, rain, wind, snow and ice.

Nashville backyard festival lighting

We can recreate the same magic in your residential or commercial outdoor space!

Our festival lighting entails using commercial grade lighting suspended by heavy wire so it doesn’t sag over time. We professionally install everything we sell so that you can be sure it is safe, hung properly and provides a custom look that is all your own. We also ensure it is suspended with corrosion resistant hooks exactly where you want them so that it provides a gorgeous overhead lighting effect for years to come. Unlike those cheap string lights that only look like café lights, our bulbs don’t crack, yellow or fill with water. This can be highly dangerous and can cause your breakers to trip, and shock or even a fire. Don’t risk your family’s safety on cheap fixtures!

Our festoon lighting uses LED bulbs so that they are low-wattage, last 50,000+ hours and are easy on the wallet. We offer you clear, white and a rainbow of colors so that you can customize the look and change them out during any time of the year such as the holidays. It’s great to have options!

We’ve replaced plenty of inferior so-called café lights that our competitors are selling, and you can be assured theirs are nothing more than cut-rate imitations. Don’t be fooled into thinking that these are the same ones you see at actual restaurants and cool retail street alleys that we’ve installed all over Music City like Edgehill Village, The Gulch and homes just like yours. Check out this recent installation we did for a customer in Clarendon, where we swathed their brick patio from above with festival lights that went from a nearby tree to the back wall of their home. We are sure you will agree that it adds a ton of backyard beauty and charm with unmatched simplicity and style.

Nashville Fiesta Lighting

If you want the look of an elegant French café over your patio or deck, festoon lighting is the ideal solution for overhead. It can elegantly drape across large expanses without having to use a harsh stadium-type fixture with a large bulb that is blinding and has a tacky look. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville can install your festival lighting so that it perfectly fits into your existing landscape lighting plan in a totally natural way so that it is a cohesive part of your outdoor entertaining area. You will be able to hang out with family and friends, easily be able to cook, dine and play card or board games with the kids.

Don’t waste your money on cheap imitation café lights that are nothing more than seasonal string lights that are not meant to last. Instead invest in authentic, high quality festival lights that will provide years of solid use with no headaches or disappointment over the long term.
