The right outdoor lighting can easily highly the magnificent palm trees on your property.

For example, if your yard is lined with a few grandiose palm trees, a wider flood bulb may be a better choice than a regular bulb in order to fully illuminate all of their impressive features. Choosing the wrong bulb can cut off light from the tops of trees and cast unflattering shadows on your home. If you have larger trees, statues or other features that may require more outdoor lighting, be sure to consult an expert to find out which bulb is right for you.

Additionally, the size of your home will come into plan when designing your unique  outdoor lighting strategy. Ranch-style Naples homes look especially impressive when illuminated by a wider flood bulb, while taller homes more than two stories benefit from installing narrow spot lights.

Why Should Southwest Florida Homeowners Choose Outdoor Lighting?

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives architectural lighting accentuates Naples home

Outdoor lighting influences aesthetics, functionality, and safety.

No matter how you look at it, outdoor lighting is an investment – an investment of energy and money. Even with the best outdoor lighting company, you will have to cope with some chaos at your home during installation, and all quality products cost money. So why is outdoor lighting such a good choice for homeowners? And why do so many choose to add it? The answer is simple really. The effects of outdoor lighting dramatically change your property. No other home improvement can have such a profound impact on how you, your family, and your guests experience your home. Outdoor lighting elevates a home, makes it stand out from the others that surround it, and brings notice you will need when it comes time to sell. But why does outdoor lighting have such an impact on a home? It comes down to three areas of influence – aesthetics, functionality, and safety.

 

Aesthetics – There is no denying how much more beautiful a property appears at night under strategically placed lighting. In that warm glow, textures seem more vivid, architectural features stand out, and the entire property radiates elegance and mystery. Areas of shadow contrast with bright pools of light, bringing emphasis to the most detailed areas of your home. Beautiful outdoor lighting draws you to a property and causes you to see all its best features. Such light effects mood, brings calm, and transforms the atmosphere.

Outdoor lighting increases safety around your home.

Functionality – It’s hard to do stuff in the dark, even if you are simply sitting on the deck for drinks and conversation. Outdoor lighting extends the hours you can utilize your outdoor spaces. It gives you romantic nights in the lanai and energetic evenings by the pool. No longer will darkness chase you into the house. Rather, you will be able to take advantage of the milder evening temperature, linger, and relax.

 

Safety – An illuminated property is a safe property. Outdoor lighting helps prevent injuries that could occur as a result of night time trips and falls over steps, stones, and misplaced objects. Light can also reveal the presence of encroaching wildlife, such as snakes or spiders. In addition to revealing hazards, outdoor lighting deters criminal activity. It is much more challenging for a thief or vandal to break into a home that is lit because there are fewer places to hide. If given the choice between a well lit or a dark home, criminals will choose the dark one.

 

So why should you add outdoor lighting to your home? Because it improves not just your home but Kurt Shearer Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naplesalso your life in that home. Don’t wait any longer. Take advantage of all these benefit, and start that process by calling Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naples today.

Flashes of light and color splashed across the night sky, followed by a sharp pop. Sparks scattered and threw brief illumination across the sand. You stopped. How could you not stop?

They lift our mood and cause us to let our worries go, as we shift our attention to their shining patterns. What is it about fireworks that captivates us so? It’s not the sound, which is actually unsettling. It’s the light. Light has a profound effect on how we feel. It puts us at ease and makes us feel at home. While fireworks last mere moments, adding outdoor lighting can create many of the same effects on you, your family, and your guests. Fortunately, outdoor lighting is more lasting. It can even last a lifetime.

Naples’ Top Three Outdoor Lighting Blunders Can be Avoided When You Hire a Professional for Your Naples Home

As outdoor lighting professionals, we really do want everyone’s property to look its best, especially when it comes to their outdoor lighting. You know that cringe you feel when you see work in your field of expertise that just isn’t well executed? This is how we feel when we see poorly installed or designed outdoor lighting. Unfortunately, there is a lot of bad outdoor lighting. Homeowners and other non-professionals who attempt to install an outdoor lighting system certainly have the best intentions, but a lack of knowledge can lead to mistakes that prevent the property from looking its best. By allowing Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naples to install your system, you can avoid these common outdoor lighting blunders.

 

Awkward Fixtures – We all know the scene, a small spotlight or floodlight installed near a wall or corner, probably in a mulched area. It stands out day or night, and it is one of the first things you see when you approach the home. When designing a system, it is important for people to see the effect of outdoor lighting not the lights themselves. Fixtures should blend into the landscape rather than drawing the eye. If fixtures are positioned awkwardly or are the incorrect fixture for the area,

The fixtures draw more attention to themselves than what they should be illuminating

The fixtures draw more attention to themselves than what they should be illuminating

they garner more attention than the lighting itself. To eliminate this blunder, be sure that you have a professional install your lights. That way, they are positioned correctly. By using high quality fixtures from Outdoor Lighting Perspectives, their shape and color will blend into your landscape. Our copper fixtures develop a patina finish over time that is stylish and even has camouflaging characteristics.

 

Insufficient Illumination – If the wrong fixtures are chosen or if the lighting configuration is incorrect, a home will be riddled with either dark spots or hot spots. These areas are unattractive and ineffective. Having plenty of fixtures correctly positioned bathes the exterior of a home showcasing all of its architectural elements. This doesn’t mean that the façade of a well lit home is white washed with light, but it does mean that shadowed areas don’t look like a monster is lurking there. A consistent wash of light with purposeful areas of shadow is not only more appealing; it is also safer, giving residents and guests clear visibility. To eliminate this blunder, have a professional install your lights so fixtures are positioned for optimal illumination.

Poor outdoor lighting does nothing to enhance the look of your home

Solar Lighting – While it is true that solar lighting is ideal in terms of energy consumption, the technology is not developed sufficiently to transform it into quality outdoor lighting. Solar lights harvest energy from the sun and store it to burn at night. Unfortunately, current solar fixtures cannot store enough energy to shine consistently, brightly, or naturally. Often, solar lights are dim, oddly colored, or even off. Though the lights are supposed to turn on when the sun goes down, they often turn off randomly and are not reliable. Many homeowners who choose this option are trying to be more environmentally conscious, but they would be much better off choosing a quality LED system. Our LED lights are energy efficient, long lasting, and indistinguishable from halogen lights. Your property will be environmentally friendly without sacrificing any of the look you crave.

 

If you are about to install an outdoor lighting system, don’t fall victim of these blunders. Call Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naples today. With us doing the work, your outdoor lighting will be in the best professional hands.

Outdoor Lighting Techniques That Make Your Naples Home Shine

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naples is committed to making your southwest Florida home stand out, and this has been our aim for many years. One of the reasons we are the best outdoor lighting company is because we tailor each system to the property features and the homeowner’s preferences. This makes each install unique and personal. Homes that are bathed in light from our systems are the most eye-catching in the neighborhood. When designing and installing outdoor lighting, we use several lighting techniques to highlight all the best of your home.  By implementing washing, grazing, and silhouetting, we can bring out the best of your Naples home.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naples Pool Lighting

Washing is a technique that is used to bring out texture. Perhaps, you have a stone accent wall on the exterior of your home or a landscape feature that incorporates a variety of plants. These elements are rich in texture, and this aspect should be showcased. Washing utilizes flood or well lights to accomplish this effect by illuminating them enough to show their distinctive characteristics but not with so much light that detail is lost.

 

If using the grazing technique, we “brush” landscape or architectural features with just enough light to allow your eyes notice that these features are there. This technique can be very useful to create an air of mystery or to light areas subtly.

 

Sometimes, what you don’t see is more striking than what you do see. Silhouetting involves putting a spot or floodlight behind an object to create a distinct shadow. This technique can be used to striking effect when lighting objects with unique shape. Ornamental plants or other landscape features become even more distinct when lighted in silhouette.

Naples home with various outdoor lighting techniques

Most homes we light use a combination of these techniques. Notice that each technique uses a different level of light. Contrasts, highlights, and lowlights work together to create a scene that reflects you, the homeowner, and makes your property visibly unique after sundown. We will highlight your home’s best features and delicately illuminate other areas in order to give you the best curb appeal possible.

 

If you want to bring out the best of your home, choose outdoor lighting from Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naples. Call us today, and let us use our expertise to make your home shine.
