Upgrade your Naples Outdoor Lighting System to LED Before the Long Nights of Winter Arrive

LED Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of NaplesThere are many great benefits to having LED outdoor lights. Compared to incandescent and halogen outdoor lighting options, LED offers lower energy use, lower energy cost, longer bulb life and high quality beautiful illumination with plenty of flexibility.

While all of those features are fantastic, I have to admit, seeing the significantly lower electric bill at the end of each month is my favorite part. There is no use in having a gorgeous outdoor lighting system at your Naples home if you are turning them off because you are concerned about the electric bill. If you’re considering installing a new outdoor lighting system, LED outdoor lights are the only way to go.

Retrofit Existing Naples Outdoor Lighting Systems

At Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naples we don’t just install new outdoor lighting. We repair, maintain, retrofit and upgrade existing outdoor lighting systems. If you already have an outdoor lighting system installed by someone else, there is a very good chance we can come in and retrofit it to LED. By upgrading your outdoor lighting to LED you’ll save up to 80% on your electric bill without having to have an entire new system installed. With LED you get gorgeous light that matches your previous light, but with less electricity to get you there. A standard halogen’s light temperature is 2700-3000K and considered soft white. We primarily use 3000K LED light, matching perfectly.

Naples home with various outdoor lighting techniquesLonger Nights, Means Running More Lights. More Lights, Means more Electricity.

The winter is a lovely time of year in Naples. With the nights being longer, but the weather still being warm, you’ll be running your outdoor lighting even more. Winter evenings are a great time to enjoy your Naples lanai or deck. Don’t wait until the shortest day of the year to realize you’re missing out on a cost savings by not having LED outdoor lights. Now is the time to call us to have your outdoor lighting system upgraded to LED, before the nights get long and the electric bill goes up.

An LED Retrofit Means More Capacity

One of the benefits of upgrading your outdoor lighting system to LED means that your transformer is handling less wattage. With less wattage being used, if your transformer was previously maxed out, you will be able to add more lights that you may have originally decided against. For instance if you currently have seven 35 watt halogen lights and your transformer is full, replacing those with 6 watt LEDs (for a comparable effect) means you can now fit a total of forty 6 Watt LED lights on that transformer. Meaning with just some additional wiring but no new transformer you can add 33 more lights, if you wanted to.

LED Outdoor Lighting Brightens a Mediterranean Villa nestled between the Imperial River and Harbor Cove

Tucked in the Bonita Bay neighborhood of Bonita Springs, FL sits a gorgeous Mediterranean Villa that was just asking for some outdoor lighting. With gorgeous architectural details, brick paver driveway and a variety of palm trees we couldn’t ask for a better canvas.

Architectural Lighting in Bonita Springs

architectural -outdoor-lighting-show-off-mediterranean-villa-bonita-bay

The front of this Mediterranean beauty does not disappoint. In the day time you’ll notice the prominence of the five Alexander Palm trees that frame the fountain and skim the roof line. Your eye is naturally drawn up to the top of the palms where your attention is immediately grabbed by the beautiful arches over the balcony and then the red tile roof.

tree-lights-uplights-highlight-Alexander-palms-bonita-springs

Our intent with the front of the home was to make the features that are so striking during the day, equally striking after dark. By focusing on the arches, fountain and roof line we were able to not only highlight the details of the Mediterranean style but also show off the height of the Alexander Palms. With tree lighting, the palms now frame the illuminated arches and fountain while creating additional beauty in shadows.

Entrance Lighting in Bonita Springs

southern-live-oaks-hide-gorgeous-entryway-bonita-springs

A beautiful inviting entrance like this should never be under the cover of darkness. The homeowners asked us to illuminate the entryway and stairs so evening visitors could be guided inside safely. With a brick paver driveway and sidewalk leading to the stairs that are tucked in so perfectly under the Live Oak trees, this entry way was dark and treacherous under even the brightest moonlight.

led-outdoor-lights-illuminate-hidden-entrance-bonita-bay

To remedy the dark entryway, we started with some down lighting hidden up in the Southern Live Oak trees. What used to cause the darkness became a perfect source for just the right amount of light. By also adding integrated outdoor LED uplights and path lights we were able to show off the paver walkway, the beautiful stair case, and most importantly lead guests safely to the front door with lighting that appears to be planned solely for aesthetics.

Ambient Lighting in Bonita Springs

brick-paver-driveway-lined-with-palm-trees-bonita-springs

Around the right side of the home, just past the beautiful front entryway lies the brick paver driveway leading to the garage and rear of the property. Surrounded by beautiful landscaping that includes Coconut Palms, Sable Palms and another Southern Live Oak we needed to illuminate this area with subtle ambient light without stealing attention from the front of the home.

driveway-lighting-bonita-springs-FL

We were able to place integrated LED uplights under the Coconut Palms and the Sable Palms to create a distinct yet gentle border around the edges of the driveway. With the addition of a couple of strategically placed integrated LED path lights, the homeowners were provided with enough ambient lighting to navigate into their home at night, without turning on their garage lights.

LED Outdoor Lighting in Bonita Springs

coconut-palm-lights-sable-palm-lights-bonita-springs

This is what 31 Watts can do. Using 1/2 the energy of a single incandescent light bulb.

By using only integrated LED fixtures at this Mediterranean Villa in Bonita Springs, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naples was able to illuminate this architectural masterpiece and all of its landscaping with only 98 Watts along the front and 31 Watts around the side and rear. Think about that for a second. A standard incandescent light bulb is 60 Watts. We are illuminating the entire exterior of this home with just slightly more power than two of the light bulbs you may still have in your lamps at home. LED outdoor lighting is a great way to save energy and save costs without compromising light quality.

Outdoor Lighting makes The Trianon Hotel an evening gem in downtown Naples

Commercial outdoor lighting in downtown Naples

Right in the middle of downtown Naples you will find a treasure in the boutique style Trianon Hotel. With the addition of commercial outdoor lighting the Trianon’s exterior architecture and beautifully landscaped grounds are getting the attention they deserve well after the Florida sunset sizzles into the sea at sundown.

Old-Naples_Trianon_Day-Time

Old Naples

Dubbed “Trianon Old Naples”, the owners wanted to highlight the front of the property to improve curb appeal and add to the landscaping. Highlighting the beautiful Palm trees, statues, portico and the Florida charm of the front façade was the key to making that goal a reality. With the added benefit of unique architectural features like the balconies, roof line and the different reliefs along the front, we were able to capture the “Old Naples” splendor with this commercial outdoor lighting design.

Naples Trianon entry

Commercial Outdoor Lighting Design

Down lighting on two big oak trees provides the right amount of shadow and light to create a majestic effect on the smaller trees and shrubbery below. The palms, shrubs, and other greenery gain a glow from above that makes for a mysterious affect when uplights and path lights are added nearby. Seeing the depth and beauty in every branch and every leaf at night gives guests at the Trianon a warm and friendly invitation to enjoy the grounds at any time.

With approximately 20 low voltage uplights to highlight all of the beautiful palms and the front façade, we created striking shadows along the front of the boutique hotel. The shadows created from the tall tree canopy, the ornate balcony railings and the palm leaves create a unique majestic Florida feeling with drama and grace from every angle.
Naples Trianon center entry
As you see in the picture there is a sidewalk running in front of the main entrance. The client wanted more light on the sidewalk. Rather than opting for typical task lighting we elected to install fixtures up in the trees to have the light cascade down. Having four very tall shade trees in the Florida heat is a valuable feature during the day. By using the trees to cast interesting shadows across the sidewalk and property at night we were able to maximize their presence after the sun goes down. The creation of shadows and patches of light results in a very aesthetically pleasing and original night time affect.

By converting existing uplights along the front fascade to LED we were able to illuminate the Trianon in a whole new light. The addition of outdoor LED lights to the property is a win-win for the owners, as the lights provide brilliant illumination while spending less energy, less running expense, less maintenance and longer warranties than traditional 120 volt.

Mystery and a personal haven are hidden among the lush landscaping at this Olde Florida style Naples sanctuary illuminated with LED outdoor lighting

One home removed from the endless sunsets of the Gulf of Mexico, this residence reflects Olde Florida style while serving as a personal sanctuary for the owners.  The lush landscaping for the front of the home is illuminated by 11 bronzed brass LED fixtures ranging from 1.5 watts to 6.5 watts each for a total of 50 watts power consumption. For additional perspective, consider for a moment that’s 30% less energy use than two typical incandescent candelabra bulbs found in most wall mounted coach or carriage lights.

Let yourself get lost in the images of how this home and its well placed illumination invite you to walk up the path and enjoy the warmth within.

Naples garden lighting

The carefully placed lighting creates the perfect welcome for any guest or homeowner upon arrival.

During dusk, the illumination acts as a compliment to the setting sun rather than competing with it. While the trees absorb the last of the fading sunlight, each LED fixture begins to bring the lush greenery to life.  A well placed glimpse of light from under the gate creates further allure of what might lie behind the picket fence. The property itself is too expansive to be limited to just the welcome path.  Depth and height is created by drawing the eye to the wide array of specimens that deserve attention. Across the front of the house are multiple species of palm trees, shrubbery and landscape accessories waiting to be discovered.

tree lighting Old Florida home Naples

As the sun finally sets on the Gulf, the landscaping brims to life with artful lighting. Without overwhelming the eye, LED illumination casts a romantic veil of light that emphasizes rich greens, vibrant yellows and the deep, earthy hues of the landscaping. The energy efficient LED lamps used to illuminate the porch continue to create a beautiful focal point. It’s hard to believe this much illumination can be derived from a total of 50 Watts.

fountain lighting Naples FL

LED outdoor lighting can do so much more than create the perfect landscaping scene.  It can optimize it. The water flowing through this fountain is not the only soothing feature here. Notice how the light captures the detail of the curve of the swan’s neck and feathers at the center of the fountain. The strength of the base is contrasted with delicate sounds of water trickling in the shadows. The corrosive proof fixtures are a perfect match for the moisture rich environment a fountain can create.

LED lights create a simple and elegant effect. It’s easy to appreciate the soft glow surrounding the specimens rather than the harsh glare of a simple spot light. In addition to the 50,000 hours of life expectancy, these energy efficient LED lamps deliver a savings of 80% compared to a halogen based low voltage system.

The selected solid brass fixtures blend right in to the surroundings. You can enjoy your personal oasis without the intrusiveness of the fixture impeding your view.The_Secret_Passage_Gulf_of_Mexico

Have you seen the most fabulous outdoor lighting in Bonita Springs?

After designing and installing outdoor lighting and landscape lighting in Bonita Springs for 15 years, we believe that our lighting designs at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives are the most fabulous. We are tremendously passionate about outdoor lighting. You will see many of our outdoor lighting designs in Bonita Bay and The Brooks and many other upscale homes throughout Bonita Springs.

One of the best ways to evaluate outdoor lighting is to take a look at before and after pictures. With outdoor lighting design, so many landscape elements and architectural elements can be illuminated. But exceptional design calls for the designer to select areas and elements within the landscaping that will create the best nighttime illumination. Take a look at the before and after picture below. One of the focal lighting scenes is in the back corner. The contrasting colors of the landscaping along with the water feature make it ideal as a focal element of this lighting design. You will also notice that we paid particular attention to the beautiful colors of the Thai plant toward the left of this scene. The next aspect of this design is gently illuminating the architectural pillars and horizontal beam. This spectacular pool area has tremendous height and dimension and it would be a shame not to draw the eye upward and to the Coconut Palm trees right outside the enclosure. Illuminating the trees adjacent to but outside the enclosure seamlessly blends the inside and outside. It allows the homeowners to view and enjoy their exterior landscape in a way that cannot be done during the day. Taking a look at the landscaping, it’s well designed, well manicured, and just beautiful. But seeing it at night brings dimension, contrasting colors and elements of each of the palm trees to life. You don’t have to look too closely at the nighttime view to see the texture on the trunks of the palms. As it relates to texture, you can also see the fronds of the interior trees and the individual stones within the water feature lighting area. Low level lighting brings this area to life.

Bonita Springs pool lighting and Bonita Springs palm lighting

Below you will see another pool enclosure lighting design in Bonita Springs. Notice the way your eye is drawn beyond the enclosure and the way the lighting is able to blend the interior and exterior landscaping. Also notice the detail of the leaves, fronds and trunks. Notice how those details become engaging and mesmerizing with discrete lighting.

Bonita Springs outdoor lighting

Below is an architectural facade outdoor lighting design in Bonita Springs. Here are some of the principles we hold dear with lighting design. If applicable, the home’s facade should be illuminated from side to side and from top to bottom. You will see too many designs that illuminate just the entry or just one particular area of the facade. Make sure your lighting designer adeptly illuminates the beauty of your home’s entire facade if applicable. That’s just one element of good architectural lighting design. Next, your lighting designer should adeptly bring to life both depth and texture. By specifying the correct wattage, beam spread, and color temperature; the different architectural reliefs can be seen and enjoyed at night. In fact, these become more apparent with exceptional lighting. You want texture to come to life as well as focal architectural features. Taking a look at the image below, you will note that this spectacular Bonita Springs home looks even more spectacular at night.

Beautiful tree lighting is essential to exquisite landscape lighting.

Beautiful tree lighting is essential to exquisite landscape lighting.

Trees are an important component of the Estero landscape, and with many large trees, it is important that your outdoor lighting designer understand how to light older trees and trees of different species. For example, palm trees, with their unique shapes, require different lighting than oaks. The positions of fixtures are especially critical for not only achieving optimal lighting, but also for eliminating “burn out” – extremely bright spots on tree trunks where detail and textures are lost. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naples understands all of the peculiarities that can mean the difference in great landscape lighting and landscape lighting that leaves something to be desired.

If you are currently building in Estero, contact Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naples today. We can give you landscape lighting that is a perfect complement to your property and is a perfect fit within the Estero community. Remember that installing your landscape lighting while your landscaping is being designed will allow for more lighting possibilities and will minimize the time that your property is in construction disarray. The holidays may be upon us, but we are here to serve you. Don’t hesitate to call.

Put Outdoor Lighting on Your Holiday List This Year

Give a truly memorable gift this season - outdoor lighting.

Give a truly memorable gift this season – outdoor lighting.

Have you decided what you want for Christmas this year? The days are counting down, and we’re just about three weeks away. If you still don’t know what you want or if you’re stuck on what to get for that special someone who has everything, consider outdoor lighting. The best gifts are those that are used frequently, but ones you either didn’t think of buying for yourself or were just putting off for some reason or another. Outdoor lighting is the perfect gift for a spouse, parent, or homeowning child. Not only will it keep giving night after night all year long, but it will transform their home.

 

There are many practical benefits of outdoor lighting. It increases the functionality of a property, allowing homeowners to use outdoor living spaces once darkness falls. It increases safety by illuminating potential trip hazards and enhances security by reducing shadowed places where unsavory characters can hide. Outdoor lighting also increases curb appeal and can affect property value if a homeowner decides to sell. But in addition to all of these benefits, outdoor lighting profoundly affects the ambiance and beauty of a property. Outdoor lighting can be designed to evoke many different moods – festive, serene, warm, elegant, or enchanting. At Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naples, we design systems that complement the property and match the homeowner’s personality. Our systems highlight each property’s very best features, and homeowners are routinely surprised by how beautiful their properties really are once the lights come on.

 

In additional to its practical benefits, outdoor lighting transforms the atmosphere of outdoor living spaces.

Outdoor Lighting – Naples’ Warm Holiday Welcome

Welcome your holiday guests with the warmth of outdoor lighting.

Welcome your holiday guests with the warmth of outdoor lighting.

Seasonal residents have returned to Naples, and those who live here year-round are thankful for fall’s mild temperatures. Cooling weather and longer nights mean the holidays are coming, and what better place to spend the holidays than where the cold doesn’t hurt! Now that all of our residents have returned home, it’s time for everyone to start their holiday planning. What have you done so far? Made gift lists? Tested that new cookie recipe? Thought about outdoor lighting? Though it may not be the first thing that comes to mind, outdoor lighting is actually key to a beautifully decorated home. And while you could certainly include festive holiday lighting in this consideration, I really mean architectural lighting, landscape lighting, entryway lighting…(the list goes on), though you may consider these to be simply “normal” outdoor lighting. They make a profound difference in the ambiance and atmosphere of your home, and the very best outdoor holiday lighting designs incorporate both “normal” outdoor lighting and festive lighting.

Why would a regular outdoor lighting design put others in the holiday spirit? Because of the feelings lighting can inspire – feelings of welcome, warmth, and comfort. Warm, natural light contrasts sharply with dense darkness surrounding it, and the reasons it stirs up positive feelings are probably instinctual. For countless years, human beings have been making our own light so we can better function after sunset. Our ancestors built campfires where they and their kin gathered for warmth and protection. Today, we don’t build as many fires, but we are still drawn to oases of warm light at night. Outdoor lighting can make your property warm and inviting – a space that draws your guests in.

DSC_0030And those feelings of warmth and welcome are what we strive for during the holidays. We want to foster positive emotions that make everyone feel good. In creating this welcoming atmosphere, landscape lighting, driveway lighting, path lighting, and entryway lighting will be essential. Such lighting gives your guests direction, as well as that cozy feeling.

With the holidays only a few weeks away, it’s time to take a serious look at your property and your lighting, and call Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naples. We are a full service outdoor lighting company that specializes in outdoor lighting alone. With years of experience and a stellar reputation in Southwest Florida, we would love to help you welcome your family and guests with holiday cheer. Let’s talk about it today.

Keep Your Naples Outdoor Lighting System Performing its Best This Fall

Maintenance keeps your outdoor lighting system looking and performing its best.

Maintenance keeps your outdoor lighting system looking and performing its best.

To the many who are returning to Naples for the winter – Welcome back! The temperatures are mild, the sun is shining, and this is still paradise. Relax and enjoy the season. For both those who are returning and those who call Naples home year round, fall is the perfect time to do maintenance on your outdoor lighting system. Why? Because now that the temperatures are no longer sweltering, you want to spend more time outdoors, and with Daylight Savings time coming to an end on November 2nd, that time will likely be spent after the sun goes down.

 

Here on the Gulf Coast, the elements can be harsh. Rains and wind cause erosion around your wiring, and they can even beat on your fixtures so they are no longer aimed with the precision they once were. During routine landscaping, fixtures can be bumped and jostled. Your dogs might even do this when they are dashing through the yard after that squirrel. In addition to general repositioning and adjusting, outdoor lighting systems need to be checked to ensure all components (wiring, bulbs, and transformer) are functioning properly. Bulbs burn out, and well lights can accumulate debris. Debris accumulation and damaged wiring can lead to fires, so it is important to give your system the attention it needs. A little care now can save you time and money later.

 

LED Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of NaplesIf you are an Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naples’ client, you may already have an Annual Maintenance Plan (AMP). If so, this work is covered by your plan. All you have to do is give us a call. If you’re not an OLP Naples’ client and own a system that was installed by another provider or contractor, there is no need to worry. We can still perform maintenance on your system and are happy to do so, especially if you cannot reach the contractor who performed the installation.

 

Your outdoor lighting system is key to fun-filled evenings outdoors in Naples. Be sure it looks and performs its best. Contact us today. In order for your system to stay in top shape, it needs a routine check up. So why not do it as you prepare to utilize your outdoor living spaces more frequently? Be sure your home and outdoor spaces are shining brightly and turning heads this fall. It all starts by giving us a call.
