Maximize Enjoyment of Your Outdoor Living Investment with Naples Pool Deck Lighting

Classic Naples home design offers a gorgeous Floridian aesthetic with a heavy focus on outdoor living spaces. With our fantastic climate, the outdoor areas around the home are distinctly a part of everyday life. Applying the same love and attention to the outdoors that you do indoors is a part of Naples culture. Including more than just lawn and landscape care, Naples residents invest heavily in outdoor living spaces such as pools, lanais, outdoor kitchens, decks, and patios, including all of the necessary accessories such as ceiling fans, screening, electricity, small appliances and of course outdoor lighting to maximize use of it all.

Downtown Pool Lighting

This downtown Naples home already enjoyed stunning landscape lighting to illuminate trees, shrubbery and give their home nighttime curb appeal. Pleased with the landscape lighting design provided by our award-winning lighting design team, they called us back to illuminate their stunning pool area.

The four-foot privacy wall around the pool deck became an obvious host for the perfect lighting technique. We mounted our copper half-moon deck lighting at the top of the wall facing down. The resulting effect is a gorgeous wall wash that subtly highlights the perimeter of the pool deck while illuminating the texture of the stucco garden walls.

Taking full advantage of the exotic plants that create the lush tropical surround, we placed landscape lighting within the three large planters that line the pool’s edge. With so much lush greenery, a few lights to illuminate the greenery allows the space to be enjoyed as a tropical getaway at night as well as during the day.

Water Feature Focal Lighting

The focal feature of the pool deck is without a doubt the stunning Mediterranean-style fountain on the wall of the pool house. The classic water feature further exemplifies this Naples home in the Floridian style that draws everyone here. Framing the fountain are two columns with large palm trees on either side, by illuminating the columns and trees from below, we simultaneously draw your eye to the fountain and complete the lush tropical feeling of the entire outdoor space.

Naples Outdoor Lighting – A Gift Dad Can Enjoy for Years to Come

Give Dad a relaxing getaway in his backyard for Father's Day.

Give Dad a relaxing getaway in his backyard for Father’s Day.

It’s June, and Father’s Day is just a little over a week away – June 15th. So what do you have planned to celebrate Dad this year? Maybe you’re thinking of getting him a new set of golf clubs, a power tool, or new grill tools. All of these gifts would probably please him, but how about something a little different? Give Dad the gift of outdoor lighting, and he can enjoy mild, Naples nights relaxing on the patio or deck. Now that temperatures are consistently in the mid to upper-80s, nighttime is the best time to spend outdoors.

 

What are some good areas to light up for Dad? How about the lanai? He can spend evenings in conversation, drink in hand, enjoying mild Naples breezes. Or consider deck lighting. The deck is the perfect spot for an outdoor dinner. You can even give it a trial run on Father’s Day when you and the family go for a visit. Dad works hard in the yard. Be sure all of that hard work is noticed by adding landscape lighting. Even at night, the neighbors will be able to see the lawn, shrubs, and trees he tends week after week. Or you might add pool area lighting. After a hard day’s work, Dad can relax by the pool long after the stars have appeared. He won’t miss out even if he’s working late.

 

Be sure all of Dad's hard work in the yard is noticed with outdoor lighting.

2013: A Year of Aesthetics for Naples Outdoor Lighting

The end of 2013 is approaching much quicker than I anticipated. When we were kids, time seemed to creep along so slowly, especially around the holidays. But somehow as we age, time speeds up.  It’s hard to believe that the end of 2013 is already here. Like so many, at the end of the year, I enjoy reflecting on what the year has brought and how our company has performed. While I do this personally, I also do this as the owner of Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naples. So what has this year brought to outdoor lighting in our area? 2013 has been the Year of Aesthetics.

 

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naples uses light to blur the boundaries between indoor and outdoor spaces.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naples uses light to blur the boundaries between indoor and outdoor spaces.

It is no mystery that the people of Naples, Florida have elegant tastes. It is evident in our architecture, gardens, style, and especially our outdoor lighting. While outdoor lighting will always have practical applications that should never be ignored, we have been privileged to focus on how we can best utilize light to elevate the overall beauty of a property or specific outdoor area. For some of our most outstanding projects this year, we used outdoor lighting to blur the boundaries between the interior and exterior realms in gardens, lanais, and pool areas. By blurring these boundaries, we have created areas that are enticing and warm and connect our clients to the natural beauty all around them. This year, we’ve invested great effort into studying the techniques that will create such effects. We have experimented with our fixtures, so we are well aware of how to optimize their abilities. That work has paid off, enabling us to create several outdoor lighting masterpieces this year.

 

In 2013, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naples has been so very fortunate to employ a remarkable team that shares a mission to highlight the unique beauty of each client’s property. Our work reflects our commitment to producing outstanding outdoor lighting, maintaining the highest level of professionalism, and realizing our clients’ visions.

 

An emphasis on aesthetics has defined our work in 2013.

Without this trust, the Year of Aesthetics would not be possible. You enable us to continue lighting Southwest Florida, teasing out the beauty that’s already there, and integrating it into a stunning scene.  So thank you, Clients, for allowing us to do what we love best.

 

Beginnings are exciting, and as we approach 2014, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naples is eager to see what this year brings. But whatever comes, we remain committed to providing you with the very best outdoor lighting design, products, installation, and maintenance available. Even though we are right before the holidays should you have any outdoor lighting issues that need to be addressed, please give us a call this week.

Elegance and Elevation: How Outdoor Lighting Enhances Southwest Florida Nights

Outdoor lighting brings aesthetic elevation.

Outdoor lighting brings aesthetic elevation.

It is not the first time I’ve said, “We’re so lucky to live here.” It won’t be the last. There is no denying that Southwest Florida is one of the most beautiful areas in the country. Stunning white beaches, the shining gulf water, and towering palm trees come together creating what most would call paradise. Personally, I count myself lucky not only to live here but also to bring out Naples’ remarkable beauty at night. While outdoor lighting is functional, as it enables use of spaces and keeps them safe after dusk, it also elevates aesthetic aspects of your property, and such elevation can only be accomplished at night. It is this characteristic that makes outdoor lighting so enticing to homeowners in our area.

 

Using several different fixtures and lighting techniques, this pool area becomes an enchanting oasis.

Using several different fixtures and lighting techniques, this pool area becomes an enchanting oasis.

Recently, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naples installed a system that encapsulates Southwest Florida beauty after dark. Like many in Naples, the client has an enclosed pool area and spectacular palm trees. The property is also located on the water. This client wanted the pool area illuminated with elegant and dramatic lighting but also wanted to highlight the trees outside of it. By doing so, we were able to craft the illusion of being completely outdoors under these magnificent trees but without the annoying insects.

 

Dramatic uplighting was used on the trees outside the pool area, making them stand out against the darkness behind them. Several small palm trees within the area were also illuminated in this way. The uplighting and their shadows reflect off of the glass roof, adding a striking layer of depth and creating an even denser “forest” look. Other islands of foliage and flowers were lit with overhead lighting and path lights. The end result was enough ambient light to make the area functional and enough shadows to create a captivating mood. Now, our client can lounge around the pool soaking up iconic Florida beauty and the mysterious elegance the new system inspires.

Iconic Florida beauty - enjoyable all night long.

Iconic Florida beauty – enjoyable all night long.

 

What is most beautiful about your property? A pool area like the one above; a tropical garden of trees, foliage, and flowers; or awe-inspiring architecture? Whatever your best area may be, there is an elegance and wonder that can only be teased out at night under the very best outdoor lighting. If you would like to unlock this beauty in your home and elevate it, call Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naples today. You have seen what we can do, and I promise the potential is already there. After all, we live in Naples.

They guide you easily to the pool area where several fixtures have been set. They light around the water making it look memorizing and could rival the look of any commercial pool around the world. The glow is bright enough to lightly bathe the entire area surrounding it without overpowering. The scene is completely soothing. But your home won’t let your pool area take the entire spotlight. Against its exterior, floodlights wash the home walls and bring out the stunning texture. Shadows create striking contrast that keep your eyes entertained for hours. If you can pull your eyes away from them for a moment, the trees in your yard are begging for your attention.  Well lights beam

While most of the country is under freeze warnings and shoveling snow off the sidewalks of their homes, we are enjoying highs in the low eighty degree range with plenty of sun and light breezes. January in Naples means mild, comfortable outdoor conditions that make relishing in the great outdoors ripe for the picking. Since many homeowners are spending more evenings outdoors it makes the perfect time of year to add outdoor lighting into the scenario.

Enhancing form and improving function

Landscapes throughout the Naples area resemble a tropical paradise that has stepped right out of the pages of a magazine. The yards of many area homeowners showcase a host of exotic palm trees, many native to the area, alongside tropical perennials such as Hibiscus and Bougainvillea
