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

Nashville TN home after outdoor lighting

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.

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.

Outdoor lighting brings forgotten areas of your landscape to life.

5) Fall in love with your home and landscape all over again – seeing your home and landscape in a whole new way, with the right outdoor lighting can make you fall in love with your home and landscape over and over again for years to come. 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.

Last week we attended the CAI Nashville golf tournament Luau Golf Scramble at Gaylor Springs Golf Course here in Nashville. We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We sponsored the straightest drive contest and had a nice tent where we met lots of great property managers around the Nashville area. In fact, some of the CAI members were already customers of ours and didn’t realize that we do commercial outdoor lighting. We do! After the event, we were asked by several CAI members to do a consultation. These were for traditional outdoor lighting but also for parking garage and parking area lighting.

3 main aspects – design company first – you give us a blank canvas and tell us what you want and we will tell you what you need #2 – installation - we provide all of the fixtures and all of the installation labor for you. There is no sub-contractor. We complete the install, you get warranty #3 – service. We service our systems, we service other systems.
