Create a Warm Welcome for the Holidays with Landscape Lighting in Naples

Expecting company for Thanksgiving or the holidays? Not looking forward to losing a day to hanging the outdoor Christmas lights and decorations that will create the festive scene you’re wishing for? At Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naples we have an alternative solution to Christmas lights. Have you considered landscape lighting and architectural lighting for year round sophisticated magic?

There is no singular solution to creating holiday magic for Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s and all of the holidays in between. With permanent landscape lighting, you can enjoy a magical effect without the annual efforts of untangling lights, climbing ladders and then taking it all back down a month later.

Give us a call for a custom designed creation to meet your sophisticated year-round outdoor lighting needs. But enjoy these few ideas to get you started:

Tree Lighting

With a few strategically placed lights you can create a gorgeous winter scene across your property. Nothing says the holidays in Naples like a well-lit palm tree. Add a colored lens filter for the current holiday for additional festive spirit.

Deck & Patio Lighting

The most obvious benefit to winter holidays in Naples is the lack of cold weather. Especially if your guests are coming in from a northern state, they’re going to want to spend as much time as possible outside. With long winter nights upon us, add pool lighting, lanai lighting, deck lighting or patio lighting for added function. String festive café lighting over your outdoor living space for an instant party atmosphere.

Architectural Lighting

Make your holiday guests feel welcome year round with a well-lit exterior. Architectural lighting adds curb appeal, visibility and the additional benefit of helping your guests find your home easily. Wall washes and column lighting are gorgeous year round, but are a perfect choice for adding colored lens filters to match the current holiday.

Custom Commercial Outdoor Lighting Brings Solamar Naples Residents a Lovely Nighttime Retreat

Sweeping views of the Gulf of Mexico and a lovely community space for the residents to relax, play tennis and entertain guests make this Solamar Naples condominium rooftop patio the place to be. During summer days the space can get quite hot, which lead the owners to invest in a Sunmaster pergola for added protection from the scorching Florida sun. While daytime shade was the priority, the pergola was a perfect opportunity to add commercial outdoor lighting to increase the patio’s function at night too.

Commercial Outdoor Lighting for Community Space

Solamar-Naples-Pavilion-and-Grill-Outdoor-LightingNaples living means outdoor living, which many times requires accessories for added comfort and enjoyment. The residents at this condominium complex on Gulfshore Boulevard in Naples can now enjoy the shade under a stunning aluminum pergola that has become the centerpiece of their rooftop deck overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. With the practicality of shade and the stunning design of a modern art installation, this pavilion deserved commercial outdoor lighting for increased nighttime function and beauty.

Modern Architecture Deserves Designer Outdoor Lighting

Sunmaster included us early in the design of this stunning commercial pergola so we could work with them on a custom decorative lighting design. With custom manufacturing, they were able to create a false bottom at the base of each post for recessing well lights. The uplighting gives the pergola a stunning modern lighting effect for luxurious nighttime entertaining.

We placed an LED outdoor lighting fixture at the top of each of the four posts, aiming the light into the center of the vinyl rooftop canopy creating an ambient glow for the dining space underneath the pergola. With the unique louvered over-hang of the pergola design, we were able to add task lighting to shine over the outdoor kitchen areas on either side of the pergola. With separate controls, the task lighting will only be on when needed, so it doesn’t detract from the gorgeous mood lighting. Now dubbed “The Pavilion & Grill”, the residents of Solamar Naples will be able to enjoy this gorgeous amenity day or night.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives Works with Your Commercial Vendors

By working closely with Sunmaster, we were able to create a gorgeous custom commercial outdoor lighting installation with perfectly concealed wiring inside of the aluminum pergola. With the hot Naples sun, pergolas, gazebos, and awnings provide the perfect focal feature and location for the addition of outdoor lighting.

Securing Your Naples or Fort Myers Home While You’re Away for the Summer

It’s that time of year again, many of our beloved snowbirds are heading north to spend their summer with family and friends. If you’re heading home for the summer, you quite likely have a long to-do list in preparation for your trip. With so much to consider, we’ve put together a few tips for securing your home while you’re away for any extended period.

Create the illusion that you’re home

This illusion is the best way to deter potential burglaries. There are many ways to achieve this illusion including:

  • tree-lighting-Old-Florida-home-NaplesMail Delivery. Suspend all mail/package delivery while you’re away. Don’t forget monthly subscriptions and newspapers.
  • Car in the Driveway. Leaving a car in the driveway is a great way to make burglars think twice. Asking a trusted neighbor to park in your driveway will create a more believable affect as the car will come and go at normal hours.
  • Timers. Adding timers to your indoor lights will allow you to set your lamps to come on at various times to give a natural appearance to the evenings and early mornings inside of your home.
  • Maintenance. Hire someone or a service to perform regular exterior maintenance on your home while away. Keeping the lawn maintained and the shrubbery trimmed will keep your home looking neat and occupied.
  • Outdoor Lighting. Outside lighting provides visibility of doors and windows from the street and neighboring homes, deterring would-be burglars from trying to enter through such a visible area.
  • Timers. Outside lights left on during the day can signal you are gone. It is the little things like this that burglars look for. Learn about Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naples lighting control automation, it can control your interior and exterior lights. And best of all, it can be turned on and off from a laptop, allowing you to make changes and resets from across the country.

Security system

Having a security system is a great way to deter intruders. If alarms go off when windows are opened or doors are opened, intruders will usually leave immediately. Add security system signage to your lawn or front door to advertise that your home is secure to deter attempted burglaries before they even try.

Attentive neighbor or friend

Ask a trusted neighbor or friend to watch over your place and call you in the event there is an issue. Having your home checked over once a week to be sure issues from summer storms, attempted burglaries or power outages don’t occur is advised to avoid having small issues turn into large expensive disasters.

A house sitter

Hiring a house-sitter is a great way to keep your home occupied while you are gone. With someone inhabiting your home and keeping up with general every day cleaning and maintenance you can rest easy knowing any potential issues that could arise are being handled or communicated to you in real-time.
