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.

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.

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.

Outdoor Lighting Captures Southwest Florida Nights

Outdoor lighting creates an atmosphere that is attractive your guests.

Outdoor lighting creates an atmosphere that is attractive your guests.

Tis the season. Well in reality, we do have a couple months before the holiday season gears up, but during this time of year, the swelter of summer is fading. Now is the time Southwest Florida residents are out and about. Parties are moving outdoors. We linger outside at night for conversations or strolls by the water, and some of our favorite moments occur on the patio or lanai while relaxing with family and friends. Whether it’s the holiday season or just the outdoor season that comes before, lighting is a big part of celebration, and there is no lighting more festive than outdoor lighting.

 

Since humans are not nocturnal, we are drawn to light, especially if that light shines in a space that is otherwise dark. From campfires to candlelight to lamps glowing in widows, light has helped civilization progress and thrive by allowing us to function once the sun goes down. Light also makes us comfortable and evokes feelings of security and happiness. Around lights, people have gathered to celebrate for generations, and with outdoor lighting, that tradition continues today.

 

Path lighting is not only safe. It is also enchanting.

Path lighting is not only safe. It is also enchanting.

Chances are, you’re not going to build a bonfire in your backyard for your next gathering. Though you may have a fire pit, a fire large enough to supply light for your property just isn’t practical or safe. But with outdoor lighting you can have the warm, striking glow that makes your guests feel comfortable and right at home. That light is what people crave. Well-positioned path lights illuminate your walkways, floodlights wash the walls of your residence, and spotlights cast dramatic uplighting onto your palm trees, live oaks, and outstanding architectural features. Relaxing and forgetting cares of the day, you and your guests will find yourselves laughing, sharing, and enjoying the night.

 

Add outdoor lighting, and you will capture all the benefits that it brings to your home – safety, curb appeal, and resale value. But above all, outdoor lighting captures mood and aesthetic in a way that no other home improvement can because no other home improvement speaks to us on such an elemental level. If you think it’s time to make your outdoor areas the place everyone will want to gather this season, contact Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naples. As the area’s premier outdoor lighting company, we will help you capture the night so you can make the most of it.

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.

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.

Unique Naples Homes Demand Unique Outdoor Lights

Naples outdoor copper LED lighting fixture for use in small areas

Our new stick light is perfect for areas with a lot of ground cover.

Distinct. Your home is like you. You invest time, money, and hard work into making your property stand out in your neighborhood. It is elegant and refined and very atypical. Distinct is good, but because you do things your way, “normal” may not always work when it comes to your home improvements. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naples is introducing a new lighting fixture to our line, and like your home, it is not everyday or run of the mill. The BB-02 LED stick light is a unique fixture for a unique property, and for this reason, here at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naples, we are very excited about its possibilities. The fixture is used to create dramatic uplighting. Though it can be used in a variety of ways, it was developed for use in landscape lighting, specifically for areas with large amount of ground cover. Crafted from the highest quality copper, the BB-02 will, over time, develop a patina finish, which is fashionable and causes the fixture to blend into its surroundings.

 

Since each property is different, outdoor lighting designers need options for all types of spaces. The BB-02 stick light is an excellent light to use in tight or restricted spaces, and the stick mount gives versatility for installation. Even though the fixture is small, it is remarkably powerful, emitting a bright light that provides the best illumination. The detail and beauty of gardens and landscaped areas will stand out under the illumination of this outdoor lighting fixture.

And don’t forget, because they consume less energy, LED lights are much gentler to the environment too.

 

The BB-02 may well be the perfect light for the most unique part of your property. The designers at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naples have many years of experience creating the optimal lighting system for each home. Each design is tailored so that the best features of your property bask in a warm glow that incites enchantment and drama.
