Selling your home in the New Year? Outdoor Lighting Adds Plenty of Evening Curb Appeal to Turn Heads!

House for saleAre you thinking of listing your home for sale?

Whether you are thinking of selling your home due to relocation, or you are ready to upgrade (or even downsize) your existing residence, the addition of outdoor lighting at your home can help bring your listing into the “best light” and spark interest with potential buyers!

We’re early in the home selling season, which typically heats up from spring through mid-summer, but you can get a jump on adding curb appeal now so that you can be ready to make a lasting first impression when the buyers pull into your driveway. Since days are still short and the evenings come early, you need to be ready to make a big impact after the sun sets since most buyers will visit your property after work when it’s nightfall. You certainly don’t want potential buyers to come up to a home drenched in darkness, so investing in landscape lighting will have them seeing everything in clear light.

Nashville outdoor lightingThe addition of outdoor lighting adds curb appeal!

Entice the attention of prospective buyers with lighting ambiance that adds dazzle to your garden beds and elicits a wonderful sense of warmth, charm and elegance.  Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville can also illuminate your For Sale yard sign so that it’s visible even at night when people are driving by. If your home looks appealing at nightfall, there is a good chance that a potential purchaser will want to make an appointment to tour it during the day.

Your buyers are likely working a day job and commuting, so they will need to see your home at night for the first time, so make certain your property is attractive and well-lit. You want to ensure that your home is clearly visible from the street as we know that many potential buyers decide right on your driveway whether or not they want to actually go in. Adding landscape lighting stages the outside of your property at night very similarly to the way indoor staging does, and architectural lighting helps bring the details of your home to center stage. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville will work within your budget and provide you with an outdoor lighting plan that gives your property appeal well into the evening hours. We will show off the roofline of your home, the façade and front door; we will illuminate your flower beds, the patio, your walkways and all the interesting facets your property has to offer so they can visualize what their outdoor lifestyle can be if they buy your home.

If your home looks extraordinary in the twilight hours, they will be excited about making a follow-up appointment to see your home during the day. Good landscape illumination also makes your house look larger in the backdrop of the night sky — enhancing the depth and width. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville will set you up with an expert lighting designer that will showcase your home’s features such as a back deck, gazebo or a two-story front porch in its best light.  Your tree canopies will be lit up and ready to pique the interest of lookers, and we will add sparkle to every corner of your property to give it a grander perspective of size. We can take a pool, water feature or pond and give it immense depth and elegance, too!

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville Partners with Top Landscape Architect, Anne Daigh, to Light Up Edgehill Village

Close up bulb shot for Anne Deigh project

In progress unique lighting installation in Edgehill Village.

We love unique and creative outdoor lighting challenges at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville and this one from our friend, and landscape architect, Anne Daigh is one of our favorites. Anne, who is a talented landscape architect here in Nashville, was looking for a partner to help illuminate a courtyard  located in super trendy Edgehill Village—a vintage industrial building that has been repurposed into cool shops, businesses and restaurants just off Music Row. The location consists of 8 brick building that once house Whiteway Cleaners in the 20’s which have been restored to embrace their historical style and significance.  Anne’s  goal was to illuminate it in a unique way that would inspire patrons and keep them coming back. She approached us with a clever way to light this outdoor area so that it would pay homage to the structure’s history, but also have a retro modern feel at the same time.

The courtyard is partially exposed to the open air, and we wanted to make sure Anne’s vision came to life by tying the indoors and outside together. We used LED dimmable Edison style light bulbs that were customized to nest inside massive metal caged orbs that vary from 18” to 38” in circumference. The orbs are red and bring a fabulous pop of color into this indoor/outdoor space that we suspended with aircraft cables from the exposed metal grid iron work that supports the roof covering the courtyard.

Edgehill Village loves the final result that Anne designed and Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville installed, and we were thrilled to partner with her on illuminating yet another fashionable and trendy corner in the city of Nashville. We love that we have our name stamped all over some of the hippest spots in town like the Country Music Hall of Fame and The Gulch. We are thrilled that building and landscape architects come to us to put the final touch on their masterful creations so that they are showcased to the max in the evening hours. And we are more than happy to make them look good after the sun goes down.

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.

Experience seasons of splendor in your Nashville landscape with outdoor lighting

Imagine enjoying season after season with outdoor lighting!

Imagine enjoying season after season with outdoor lighting!

Many people assume that outdoor lighting is just a luxury to enjoy during the warmer months, when actually nothing could be farther from the truth. Lighting gives homeowners, and business owners alike, the chance to enjoy the changing seasons in all their majesty.

Nashville Landscape Lighting Gazebo

To everything there is a season:

One of the most memorable elements landscape lighting, tree lighting and even architectural lighting provide is a stage for the changing seasons. As your landscape changes, leaves change hues and blooms emerge, outdoor lighting can be there to illuminate each moment as it unfolds.

Lighting makes a huge impact as part of your landscape. Landscape lighting can be used to emphasize a perennial flower garden that changes with each colored bloom and bud, or a line of flowering trees that transform from hauntingly beautiful barren branches in the winter months to green to mounds of whimsical pink blooms from one season to the next. Even the smallest landscape ornamentals 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.

Nashville-led-landscape-lighting

Truly professional outdoor lighting will enhance your home, landscape and your lifestyle.

More than just a pretty face:

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.

Outdoor lighting for all seasons:

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 amount of mosquitoes that are drawn into your deck, patio or oudoor living space by light are reduced making outdoor living more enjoyeable for everyone!

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

“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).”

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.

How outdoor lighting is helping Nashville homeowners add design, and curb appeal, to their home

Belle Meade Blvd. outdoor lighting by Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville

This past weekend marked not only the arrival of August, but also the inaugural arrival of National Curb Appeal month. This new, annual event is dedicated to helping homeowners focus on ways to add value and design appeal to their home’s exterior. One of the best ways to add loads of curb appeal to your home, and landscape, is through the addition of outdoor lighting. Look through the pages of any upscale home or garden magazine and outdoor lighting takes center stage.You may think that creating that same type of nighttime magic, and elegance at your home is only a dream. However, nothing could be farther from the truth. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville has opened up a world of possibilities to homeowners with our professional outdoor lighting designs enabling you to not only daydream about outdoor lighting at your home, but make that vision a reality too!

Recently, our friends at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Augusta  filmed the transformation of one of their client’s properties taking it from beautiful by day to pure enchantment at night. These videos serve as a perfect example of how Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville can transform your property too. It all begins with our consultation, take a look…

The Idea and Inspiration: When most people think of lighting the outside of their homes, they usually just consider safety and security. Important considerations, however, landscape lighting can be incorporated into an overall landscape plan that also adds to the overall beauty of your property. The lighting of steps, paths and walkways will make the grounds of your property safer; the lighting of the home façade, trees, and outdoor living spaces will add significantly to the aesthetics and make the home more inviting.  And there is the obvious benefit of added security by eliminating dark areas of the yard.

Free Design Consultation and Demonstration: Most people don’t realize this until we add lighting, but the backyard is a whole new room that they haven’t explored fully. You can have the option of going  beyond that light bulb at the doorway and create a storybook setting at your house too. Good lighting can bring magical qualities to any setting. You can rediscover the perimeter of your property, make it fun to entertain friends and family at night again and highlight points of interest, such as sculptures, fountains or even trees within your yard. Take a look at this  “preview”of  how the addition of outdoor lighting can enhance our property  as we reveal what is involved in a  nighttime demonstration …

The Installation: Once you have experienced the magic of a nighttime demonstration, here is an  in-depth look at our quality installation process…

The Outdoor Lighting Perspectives Reveal: Here in Nashville, March through September is some of the best times to enjoy outdoor living. With the addition of outdoor lighting, your landscape and outdoor living spaces are instantly transformed into usable space.Take a look at the big reveal of this transformation and imagine you and your family in the starring role…
