Resolve to Make This Year Brighter Through Outdoor Lighting

Happy New Year 2018

As 2017 draws to a close, many of us will be making resolutions to improve our lives in the New Year. These promises to ourselves can involve our health, finances, lifestyle and even improving our state of mind. As important as each of these changes can be, sometimes it is the small changes you make to your environment that can help inspire you to reach your goals.

The addition of outdoor lighting or upgrading your existing outdoor lighting is one of the small changes you can make moving into the New Year that will inspire you. After all, you have a beautiful home, a picturesque backyard, and inviting outdoor living spaces. By installing LED landscape lighting, your open-air oasis can come to life after the sun sets—allowing you to enjoy your time outdoors well into the evening.

Just as we pointed out in our story See the New Year in a new light with Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Clearwater & Tampa Bay, adding outdoor lighting to enhance your home and landscape can make a huge difference in the way you use them and will put them in a whole new light, (no pun intended).

Great examples of how lighting can change your home, backyard and landscape for the better include architectural lighting, landscape lighting, pool surround lighting and much more. Take a look:

Deck and patio lighting will bring your backyard to life after the sun goes down while improving outdoor safety. Lighting is especially helpful when installed by stairs, risers, exits and handrails. Imagine being able to enjoy your New Year Yoga routine under the stars on your tranquil illuminated backyard deck.


Two girls swimming underwater

Thinking of losing a few pounds in the New Year? Swimming for weight loss has been regularly praised for its calorie-burning and cardiovascular health benefits, especially for older people. This is because swimming uses so many muscles in your body, your heart and lungs must work hard to supply them all with oxygen. With the addition of lighting to your pool area, swimming to get in shape has no timelines!

Outdoor pool with lighting

Pool, spa and water feature lighting is also a must for making the most out of your pool, spa, backyard water features and/or surrounding space. Outdoor lighting will extend hours of enjoyment and relaxation by the pool.


Outdoor living can encompass many areas of your property, from outdoor kitchens, patios and hardscapes, fire pits, pergolas and even outdoor play areas for the kids. Outdoor lighting can help maintain these areas as desired destinations and as versatile extensions of our homes. Aside from creating ambiance and enhancing the function of our outdoor spaces, lighting will also allow you to utilize these areas in order to enjoy additional benefits.

Home and yard with special lighting

Professional outdoor lighting changes the way you live, brings your family outdoors to gather and gives you the chance to enjoy your backyard long after the sun has set. Let Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Clearwater & Tampa Bay make your home and landscape a destination worthy of enjoyment all year long!
