Qualified Remodeler recently conducted  a survey that solidified what we already knew at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville—that homeowners still put a big emphasis of Importance in lighting their outdoor living and entertaining areas. The main and largest part of their backyard—the patio or deck—are #1 on their list since that’s where they spend the most time with family and friends. The components that make up these areas and pull it all together to bring practicality are next on their hit list, including the steps, seating areas, railings and the post caps. It makes perfect sense that deck rails can easily be seen to safely guide visitors up and down to the lower levels; and that post cap illumination would provide a soft glow that is not only attractive, but useful in terms of providing a spread of ambient light.

The deck and patio are the core centerpieces of any backyard, and that’s where most of the fun happens including dining, grilling, relaxing and family parties. It makes perfect sense that our clients are looking to enhance this area since it’s the hardest working area in your outdoor oasis.

Outdoor Lighting Brings Fun to Backyard Football on the TV Screen or on the Field!

Backyard-pergola-lightingWho says home entertainment can’t happen outdoors—particularly during football season? We are lucky enough in Nashville that the weather stays warm deep into the year, and watching TV outdoors on your  porch, deck or patio with friends and family is a lot more fun than sitting on the couch inside. Think of all the fun that can be had with the game on while you are grilling on the barbecue outdoors!

Proper outdoor lighting is what enables backyard entertaining well into the evening and Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville can illuminate the areas where you choose to hang out. It doesn’t matter if it’s the porch, deck, patio or even a backyard man cave if you are so lucky–you can be sure that you will be able to impress the boys (and girls!) by watching the big game right in the comfort of your backyard with high quality outdoor lighting fixtures that are made right here in Nashville.

Outdoor man caveWhen watching sports on your outdoor TV, the luxury of having a grilling/barbecue area or  an outside kitchen is a huge benefit. The mess can stay outdoors and all the cooking can happen right where all the action is so you don’t have to miss a thing as the host. We can provide you with functional area-specific lighting that ensures those burgers get cooked exactly how your guests want them without having to guess if they are done. Why cook by flashlight or your home’s spotlights when you can have proper overhead and task lighting to handle the job safely? You can increase the value and usability of your outdoor kitchen and get a lot more functionality out of it if it’s easy to see and get the work done easily. It’s also cool to show off your culinary skills too!

Football season is here!Of course, when half-time hits, great lighting gives you the opportunity to turn up the fun by tossing around the football with friends and family on the lawn. Our landscape lighting will provide you plenty of light to be able to do this while still looking beautiful. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville can ensure that there is increased visibility for everyone who chooses to jump into the game. Proper lighting can also clearly delineate your “field area” so no one tramples your rose bushes (ouch!) or heads down a slope because they can’t see. We can give you the benefit of function, beauty and safety all in one package.

Imagine enjoying season after season with outdoor lighting!

In addition, as part of Residential Resources, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville works closely with other local Nashville companies to provide a vast menu of possibilities for your backyard. We can connect you with fellow businesses that we’ve partnered with extensively–such as The Porch Company if you are considering a custom porch project to serve as your outdoor man cave, or Siteworks Hardscape Construction for your pool, patio or hardscape needs. It’s always best in an outdoor project when all the contractors can be brought in together so they can collaborate on the job from the very beginning. It saves you time, money and a lot of hassle when everyone is on the same game plan.

Did your Father’s Day outdoor celebration come and go leaving you in the dark?

Outdoor lighting nashville spa lighting

Do you regret not adding lighting to your outdoor living spaces sooner?

I know you have all heard the phrase “hindsight is 20/20”, right? The phrase is actually a proverb that teaches a moral, meaning in hindsight things are obvious which were not obvious from the outset; one is able to evaluate past choices more clearly than at the time of the choice. With this in mind, you may have in fact found yourself wishing you had moved ahead with having your outdoor lighting installed prior to this past weekend’s Father’s Day festivities — hindsight.

With all the outdoor living opportunities the warmer season brings, such as Memorial Day, Mother’s Day, Graduations, Father’s Day and Independence and Labor Day, it is a shame to have your outdoor celebrations cut short because of a lack of proper outdoor lighting. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville wants to remind you that it is not too late to make the most out of your outdoor moments spent with family and friends. Now is the time to contact us to design and install your outdoor lighting to ensure all your upcoming outdoor celebrations are set to the right light. Outdoor lighting will allow carefree spontaneity and enable you to set the time the party ends, not the setting sun!

  • Here a few scenarios where the addition of outdoor lighting would be beneficial in maximizing you and your guests’ enjoyment:

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

Outdoor lighting for your outdoor living spaces — You have an outdoor barbecue planned for family and friends. You have planned everything accordingly including a delicious menu, desserts and even backyard games for the kids! Unfortunately, you did not consider the lack of lighting on your backyard deck or patio, where the event is to take place. This is a case where professional deck, patio and landscape lighting would have been a huge benefit to the success of your gathering. We can even custom design lighting specifically for your grilling area or outdoor kitchen to give you a food preparation area that is well-illuminated. With outdoor lighting nightfall would have allowed you to remain outdoors with your guests, enjoying delicious barbecue, conversation and endless fun. If you had chosen an LED installation, which utilizes exclusive CREE LED technology, your outdoor lighting would have an added bonus: it would have meant fewer bothersome insects in your landscape and outdoor living areas than that of traditional outdoor lighting.

Nashville landscape lighting integrated with pool lighting

Enjoy all the benefits of landscape lighting integrated with pool lighting this summer!

Outdoor lighting for the areas around your pool and spa — its summertime, after all, and you decide to throw a pool party in honor of your son or daughter’s birthday! You want this occasion to be special for your child, and his/her party guests. You carefully plan the games, refreshments, paper goods, music and party favors. The day of the event arrives and you soon realize you did not consider the party would extend past dusk! You soon realize you must move the entire party indoors because the lack of visibility around your pool becomes a risk for the attendees of the party. The solution to this situation would have been the addition of water feature lighting and landscape lighting to the areas frequented around your pool. Lighting would have made your pool area safer for party-goers, giving you peace of mind and delivering a one-of-a-kind party the kids will remember forever!

Guest house outdoor lighting

Guest house and cottage outdoor lighting.

Outdoor lighting for the areas around your guest house or cottage — You have company coming in from out-of-town this season, which will be staying in your guest house or cottage. You may have an exterior building on your grounds that has great architectural flair or that it visited often at night. It could be a guest house, cottage or some other type of outdoor building. You have the accommodations prepared for the comfort of your guests in mind, neat as a pin and ready for their anticipated arrival. Unfortunately you did not consider how dark entering and exiting the guest quarters could be for your friends or family to allow them to make themselves at home. One of the best ways to alleviate dark pathways that lead to and from your home to other structures on your property is by the addition of path lighting. Our path lighting casts a gentle glow downward on the path and adjoining landscaping making evening travel safe and relaxed. You don’t want any overly bright light to obscure night-time vision, overpower the surroundings or lose the romantic effect that you have with such beautiful structures on a property — our path lighting delivers safety and style!
