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. We want our decks to not only look fabulous, but we want the lighting to offer the convenience of helping us with visibility so that we can extend the hours of use well into the evening.  We can give you targeted task lighting that helps you see when at the barbecue, overhead café style lighting that can be draped across a large breadth of space that looks cool and brings plenty of light to do virtually anything under, and we can ensure all the key features of your deck and patio (such as steps) are lit to provide you the safety you need to make them work to their fullest.

One of the hottest trends in outdoor living design is outdoor lighting. Outdoor lighting procures a safe and secure environment around your home but in addition also provides loads of aesthetic value. A recent post by HGTV Remodels indicates the market demand for outdoor lighting is on the rise. They also point out four outdoor lighting techniques that can deliver the effect most homeowners are looking for. These are up lighting, down lighting, zonal lighting and moonlighting. Now, to someone who is not familiar with outdoor lighting terminology, these types of outdoor lighting can sound like a foreign language. In order to get the most out of your outdoor lighting it is important to become familiar with these lighting techniques so you and your professional lighting specialist will be on the same page.

Nashville uplighting

We used up lighting on this home to accentuate the width and depth of the home and bring out special features such as the columns.

Up lighting – this lighting technique is used in both architectural and landscape lighting applications. We use up lighting to accentuate the height, width and depth of your home. This lighting technique is also used within the landscape to add drama and focus to trees, and other areas of interest in the landscape.

Down lighting – down lighting plays upon the same principles as up lighting. Down lighting can be used as an innovative way to enhance your home’s architectural features. Down lighting is also the most widely used technique to illuminate walkways and pathways. Down lighting can promote safety along the most frequented areas around your home and within your yard.

Focal point lighting – focal lighting such as focal tree lighting, waterfall lighting and statuary lighting is the best way to highlight an area or object of beauty in your landscape. Our exclusive focal point lighting uses soft washes of light to enhance your object or space. This technique ensures your eye is drawn to the object we are illuminating rather than the light source itself.

Moonlighting – this appropriately named lighting technique mimics the effects of the light present during a full moon. A combination of up lighting and down lighting is used to create this hauntingly beautiful technique. We often design moonlighting within trees in the landscape to not only illuminate the tree in a unique way, but also the area that surrounds the tree.  Dramatic shadowing and ambient light combine to create moonlighting that is a work of art.

Garden and landscape lighting includes statuary lighting

Focal point lighting works beautifully when lighting statuary or other areas of interest in your landscape.
