Light Up Your Naples Home for the 4th of July

Light and shadow make summer fireworks a captivating sight.

Light and shadow make summer fireworks a captivating sight.

Ah the sights and sounds of summer! Good food sizzling on the grill, bright sunlight reflecting off of the ice in your drink, and the kids shrieking as they push one another into the pool. The kids are lucky. For them, summer is one long holiday, but at least we adults get some holiday too. The 4th of July is a mere two and a half weeks away. Hopefully, you are getting ready. Independence Day is characterized by our favorite way to celebrate in America – good food and fireworks. What better way to celebrate than by throwing fire and light into the night sky? With a pop, crackle, and flash, fireworks mesmerize us and leave us with a sense of child-like awe. It’s a good feeling. Now what if you could make those feelings and that air of celebration last? With outdoor lighting, you can.

 

While it won’t flash and flicker (and you really don’t want it to!), outdoor lighting can bathe your property in warm, dramatic light that will capture the attention of those who pass by. Like fireworks, outdoor lighting uses areas of light and shadow to attract notice, cause pause, and elevate mood. Outdoor lighting can bring a celebratory atmosphere to your home this 4th of July and every holiday afterward. Unlike fireworks, outdoor lighting is long lasting. Carefully maintained, outdoor lighting systems can last a lifetime, continuing to elevate the look and feel of your property night after night.

 

Outdoor lighting uses light and shadow to create an atmosphere that captivates like fireworks.

Your outdoor lighting system can be as big or small as you like. Perhaps you want to start with a certain area – like the front of your home or your lanai or pool area. Like a small fireworks show, a small outdoor lighting system is still beautiful and captivating, and of course, if you want to expand later, that is possible. Whether your neighbors are out for a stroll or you are hosting a summer gathering, your outdoor lighting system will lift the spirits of all those who see it. And in addition to improving the quality of your outdoor time, it can even add resale to your home should you ever choose to sale.

 

Light captivates. Be sure you are taking advantage of this characteristic and get your property celebration ready for the 4th of July and all other holidays after. Call Outdoor Lighting Perspective of Naples. As the area’s premier outdoor lighting provider, we will use light to make your property unforgettable – without unsettling pops and explosions.

LED Outdoor Lighting Fixtures for Every Area of Your Home

Last week we talked about the advantages of LED outdoor lighting and why this technology is becoming the popular choice among homeowners.  It’s all about the longevity of the bulbs, the energy it saves, and the low impact on our environment.  We do understand that the ultimate decision is based on the effect of the outdoor lighting.  After all, the benefits are a bonus, but you still want your outdoor lighting to look exceptionally nice.

Attractive outdoor lighting, with the benefits of LED technology, is where Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naples comes in.  Our advanced LED technology looks just as good as traditional halogen lighting.  Not all outdoor lighting specialists can say that.  It has to do with the Color Rendering Index or CRI.  CRI is a scale used to measure a light source’s ability to reproduce the colors and textures as closely as natural light would, and you can read more about that in a previous story we wrote called Why Color is so Important for Outdoor Lighting in Naples.  Our CRI is rated high and that is what makes your palm trees, pool areas, landscaping, driveways and every other area you want to see at night look so great.  After all, you’ve taken a lot of time and care of your outdoor spaces, so outdoor lighting should make them look as classy and elegant at night as they do during the day.

Our LED outdoor lighting produces stunning results with energy efficiencies.

We offer a complete line of LED lighting fixtures to illuminate these areas.  Our LED well lights offer a strong light while remaining hidden and out of the way.  They can be used to graze or wash a home’s exterior or majestic columns, or shadow and silhouette taller features such as your palm trees. Our copper and brass LED path lighting fixtures are as attractive as they light they produce.  These fixtures are elevated above the ground and spread the light, making them ideal for illuminating your flower beds or adding safety to your path and walkways, steps, and driveway.  Flood lights give a wide spread of light while spot lights provide a more focused beam.  These types of fixtures are used for safety and security, although they can also be used for more unique situations such as lighting a grill, basketball goal, sculpture, fountain and archway.  We also have a variety of LED deck lights that wash ambient light along deck posts.  Our sconce lights shine up and down simultaneously and our step lights are ideal for long, winding steps or sculptured paths.

No matter what you want to shine at night, we can create a custom lighting plan that includes our LED outdoor lighting fixtures.  You’ll appreciate the benefits of LED lighting while enjoying your outdoor spaces longer.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naples Specializes in Bringing your Evening Home and Landscape to Life

Most Naples residents will agree that this is their favorite time of year to spend time outdoors. 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

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naples Talks Outdoor Lighting with the Naples Daily News

We had the privilege of being interviewed by the Naples Daily News about our business last week and would like to share a copy of the article with you.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naples has been designing outdoor lighting systems for upscale homes in Southwest Florida for more than 10 years.  Outdoor Lighting Perspectives works with clients to design the perfect lighting system that meets clients’ needs.  Staff can help light homes, outdoor living areas or pathways.  Outdoor Lighting Perspectives is familiarized with lighting Southwest Florida’s architectural styles and can light living spaces, pools, decks, gardens, landscaping and more.  Outdoor Lighting Perspectives now offers a full line of LED lights.

1  What does your business offer that’s unique compared to businesses like yours?

Unlike most other lighting companies, we manufacture our own fixtures in Nashville, Tenn.  This unique relationship with the manufacturer allows us to control what is used in the field with rapid response and great quality control.  After installation we take great pride with maintenance and follow up with each customer.

2  What is unique about having a business in Southwest Florida?

A large majority of our customers have homes in other parts of the country and have our lighting on those homes too.  We have about 50 locations nationwide.

3  What do you enjoy most about owning the business?

I enjoy enhancing our customers’ properties to expand their living area outside and into the evening. Also providing beauty, safety and security to the home and the landscape.

4  What types of work experience or training were required for you to run your business?

Being creative was the biggest asset.  Having a sales background helped too, although with our nighttime design demonstration, it pretty much sells itself.

5  If someone gave you $1 million to improve your business, how would you use it?

I would most likely expand my territory to include Dade and Broward counties.  I’m pretty happy here though and don’t foresee that check coming any time soon!

Southwest Florida’s Unique Spaces Deserve Great Lighting

The pleasant weather we enjoy in Southwest Florida lets us take advantage of the great outdoors much longer than in other parts of the country.  Entertaining or just relaxing on our decks and patios is more enjoyable with good lighting that allows us to stay outside longer.  But, thinking about other spaces unique to Florida’s Gulf Coast brings to mind additional areas that could benefit from outdoor lighting.

Naples path lighting illuminates the area and increases the safety.

Southwest Florida backyards often lead to a dock or water.  The pathways down to these docks can be illuminated to create ambiance and increase safety.  Our 6” low-voltage path light is a perfect choice for this application.  It’s hand-crafted with a solid copper top and mounting stake that is enhanced over time when the copper oxidizes to a gorgeous patina, blending in with the landscaping.  The built-in impact resistant irrigation shield protects the bulb so it’s not directly exposed to water, humidity and other elements that harm traditional lighting fixtures. The lighting radius of 15 feet is fully adjustable and ensures you and your guests won’t miss a step along the way.

 

Outdoor lighting on your docks is also advantageous.  A great option here is our low-voltage copper

Dock lighting also ensures your safety near the water

wall/deck light.  This fixture can be installed on the railings of the walkways to provide the perfect amount of light for safety and atmosphere.

Our wall/deck light is small but powerful, and casts a wide indirect wash of light on the posts of the docking area. The ‘half-moon’ sconce creates rich ambient light and the copper weathers the elements beautifully.

Our path lights and wall/deck lighting fixtures are available using our traditional halogen bulbs or our energy-efficient LED lighting technology.  We’d be happy to discuss the differences and advantages of the lighting technologies with you.

Using traditional lighting in nontraditional ways is just one example of how Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naples can make your outdoor areas safer and more attractive.  Let our professional lighting designers show you ways you never thought of to light up your outdoor living spaces.  Give us a call today and we’ll show you how with a free night time demonstration.
