Outdoor lighting enhances your home and landscape every evening through every season.

Holiday outdoor lighting can add tremendous beauty to your home and landscape during the holidays, but the same can also be said about traditional outdoor lighting as well. By investing in outdoor lighting for your home and landscape now, you will be giving yourself the gift of light that you can enjoy during, and past the holidays, for many years to come! Join us as we count the ways you can benefit from outdoor lighting during, and beyond the holiday season…

  •  Comfort and Joy – By adding outdoor lighting, your home will appear warm and inviting bringing an air of comfort and joy to the season! In contrast to a dark and drab home, your illuminated home will draw people in and offer a warm refuge for family and friends with curb appeal galore.

  •  Safety – Outdoor lighting adds safety to your home and landscape in a variety of ways. Lighting walkways and paths ensures your guests are able to navigate these areas safely. This includes making your frequently traveled paths visible when ice and snow are present as well. You can also increase safety and beauty through zone lighting. Zone lighting is used to illuminate areas of your yard and landscape for nighttime use. For example, when you spend time outdoors with family and friends, you’ll need adequate outdoor lighting to illuminate your landscape areas. Zone lighting is an effective way to light a patio, deck, garden, pool area or outdoor seating area. For enhanced safety we also suggest illuminating sidewalks, driveways, garages and entryways to keep your landscape safe after dark. Keep in mind, since daylight savings time has ended our homes are darker for longer periods of time. Many Nashville homeowners are coming home from work and school to a dark home. Outdoor lighting can put an end to dark winter evenings for good.

  •  Peace of Mind – A well-lit landscape and home promotes a feeling of security, alertness and proof you care about maintaining your property. When you keep your outdoor areas illuminated, you present a feeling of  involvement and pride in your home. Outdoor lighting reduces the dark areas present around your home and promotes  a sense that your are aware of your surroundings, this helps deter would-be criminals from trespassing onto your property. Outdoor lighting can maintain your peace of mind as a homeowner in knowing you are adding another layer of security to your home.
  • Beauty -The beauty that outdoor lighting provides is reason enough to celebrate year round! A professional outdoor lighting design encompasses all the power of curb appeal by beautifying your home and landscape, and can even change your mood.

The outdoor lighting at the stunning home in Franklin, TN serves as a perfect example of how you can benefit from LED outdoor lighting.

  • LED Outdoor Lighting – Over half of our outdoor lighting installations here at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville are LED. LED outdoor lighting is more energy-efficient and leaves less of an impact on the environment than other types of outdoor lighting.  It can save a homeowner thousands in energy costs over the LED’s lifetime. In addition, since they contain no glass components, they are not vulnerable to vibration or breakage like conventional bulbs and make the perfect lighting for outdoor applications. LED lights are also free of toxic chemicals. Most conventional fluorescent bulbs contain a multitude of materials such as mercury that are dangerous for the environment and make disposal dangerous. The absence of these materials will help you reduce your carbon footprint by up to a third. LED is safer in many regards too, because it generates light from cool burning technology, and it uses less wire to install properly.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville gives you the top 5 favorite reasons to make outdoor lighting at your home this years resolution

This home in Nashville stands as a beacon of beauty and peace of mind with professional outdoor lighting.

The New Year is just days away, and with i’s arrival comes the time to make your annual New Year’s resolution. Choosing a resolution, or goal to achieve within the coming year is the easy part, all good intentions aside keeping and fulfilling it can be much more difficult. According to research conducted by Proactive Change 40%- 45% of Americans will make one or more resolutions this year. This same data also indicates that only 75% of those Americans will still be sticking to succeeding in their goal past the first week, and after 6 months only 46% will still be on track. Making a New Year’s resolution is one thing, but sticking to it to reach your inspired goal is quite another. I believe that this is due in part to the fact that most resolutions we set are too difficult, this year why not make a resolution that is easily accessible? Resolving to make your home and landscape a safer, more secure and beautiful place to live is a great resolution and  is easy with the addition of outdoor lighting.

Outdoor lighting adds many benefits to your home. From strengthening your homes curb appeal to thwarting off would-be burglars. A home and landscape that is charming by day will become dazzling in the evening by adding outdoor lighting. Here is just a few of the reasons to make outdoor lighting the one New Year’s resolution that is easy to keep.

bright and beautiful with outdoor lighting

This home is bright and beautiful thanks to outdoor lighting.

1) An end to coming home each night to a dark house – this alone is reason enough to install professional outdoor lighting at your home. Dark and dimly lit areas around your home and within your landscape leave you open to unsavory activity.  In the evening, darkness and fear of the unknown go hand-in-hand. If security is a concern outdoor lighting is critical. Having ample lighting around doorways, rear entrances of the home, garages and carports can help create a secure environment when entering your home and leaving. This security can be taken even a step further by adding LCA, (Lighting Control Animation), which can ensure your lights will be on whenever you need them. This convenient automation even allows you to control your outdoor lighting from remote locations.

 Nashville Deck and patio lighting

A well-lit deck or patio will enable you to use your outdoor space long after the sun sets.

2) Being able to entertain outdoors past sundown – have you ever had a summer barbecue on your deck or patio and just when the party gets rolling you have to cut it short because of the lack of light? By adding outdoor lighting in and around your outdoor spaces, this will never have to happen again. You can entertain into the wee hours if you wish with no worry of interrupting the treasured memories you will be creating with family and friends.

Nashville landscape lighting and path lighting

Path and landscape lighting aids in more secure travel when venturing outdoors in the evening.

3) Your kids won’t have to run from imaginary monsters anymore – Admit it, even as an adult your imagination wanders when you are forced to venture outdoors in the dark. Professionally installed landscape and path lighting will put an end to the creepy feeling that can overcome you when you venture to areas within your landscape at night. From getting the forgotten bike out of the driveway, to retrieving the expensive iPod that was left next to the kids swing set, you will feel more aware and more secure of your surroundings with outdoor lighting.

 

Nashville uplighting

Outdoor lighting makes this home’s entrance inviting and memorable.

4) A great way to make a lasting first impression – the first place to begin creating a warm and welcoming entrance to your home is with outdoor lighting. Path lighting in particular gently illuminates the path to your front door in an effective way to create ambiance and set the mood for things to come. Architectural and facade lighting that makes your homes most beautiful features come to life will lead the eye to drink in the unique characteristics of your home too. When guests remember visiting your home for the first time, a lasting impression of beauty and a welcoming atmosphere will enter their minds when you have professional outdoor lighting.

One wonderful aspect of having outdoor lighting and especially landscape lighting, is the beauty of seeing your surroundings change with the seasons. From the gold and amber hues of autumn, to the greens and blooming buds of spring and summer, your home and yard will transform into something new and beautiful with the arrival of each season.
