Lutherville, MD, has been talked about as one of the best places to buy a house in the suburbs in Maryland and one of the best places to retire in Maryland. Wouldn’t you agree? We’d like to add this suggestion: Lutherville, MD, is possibly one of the best places for homeowners to add professional outdoor lighting to their property.
Outdoor lighting—and not just any outdoor lighting, but professionally-designed and installed outdoor lighting—will make any Lutherville home stand out and stand proud. Until a majority of homes add outdoor lighting in Lutherville, MD, that will continue to be the case.
- If just one house on your street is going to stand out as having the best (or only) curb appeal at night, why not let that house be yours?
- If 15 homes in your neighborhood or subdivision are going to have amazing curb appeal at night, why not let yours be one of them?
As you can tell, we are all in favor of outdoor lighting in the Lutherville area. Let’s look at a few of the reasons why.
You’ll enjoy your home’s outdoor areas more with outdoor lighting
So often people focus on the safety and security benefits of residential outdoor lighting, but let’s take a look at how and when you enjoy the outdoor living areas around your home. Do you have a patio, deck or pool at your Lutherville home? If so, how well are these areas lit? Once it gets dark outside, do people tend to go indoors and call it a night?
With the right lighting, the outdoors can be magical at night. Think of how much more use you could get out of your deck, pool or patio if you could use them comfortably at night. You may have thought of only using these areas at night on the weekend, but with outdoor lighting, you’ll find time to enjoy the outdoors any night of the week.
Deck lighting: Instead of relying on flickering candlelight, let Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Baltimore install small LED lights under your deck railings and on the posts at the top of the deck stairs. We’ll also add tiny lights on the stair risers. Not only will your deck be safer, the ambiance provided by our subtle deck lighting will be much more inviting.
Patio lighting: Do you have shrubbery around your patio or perhaps some container gardens decorating the area? Using landscape lighting techniques, we can provide a warm, welcoming glow on and around the patio allowing you and your guests to linger there long after sunset.
Pool lighting: Anyone for a midnight swim? With landscape lighting around your pool and special lights for the pool itself, your pool will be the perfect late-night place to relax and shed the stress of the day. We’ll be sure to light the path from the house to the pool, too, to remove tripping hazards there.
Outdoor lighting will enhance the beauty of your landscape at night
We mentioned landscape lighting above as a way to increase your enjoyment of your outdoor living areas after dark, but what about the sheer beauty of landscape lighting? While we don’t want to light all of the plants and trees around your home, we can select the most beautiful ones to illuminate. We’ll walk around your yard with you and determine which trees could be illuminated most effectively. We’ll even come back with a lighting design plan and give you a nighttime outdoor lighting demonstration so you can see the effects professional lighting can have on your landscape.
Outdoor lighting in Lutherville, MD, can increase safety and security at your home
We can’t overlook the safety and security aspects of outdoor lighting. We can combine the most effective implementation of architectural lighting to showcase your house and landscape lighting to showcase your yard, with increased safety and security as the result. Every stepping stone, every path around your yard or up to the door, even the walkway from your driveway to the house—path lighting increases the safety of walkways. Increased security results from lights that remove the dark and shadowy areas around your house. Intruders are less likely to approach a well-lit home.
People talk about curb appeal in the daytime, but why not at night? Why should your home and your yard go dark after sundown? Let your home be the one people drive by in the evening wishing their homes looked as good as yours.
