No matter how great your home looks during the daytime, if you don’t have enough illumination come nightfall, it’s going to either disappear or become dormant and uninviting. This is the hard truth for a 1 million dollar home or a $10,000 home. Professionally designed and installed outdoor lighting can bring both curb appeal, as well as added safety and security come nightfall. Recently, we installed outdoor lighting for the University of South Carolina’s Chi Omega sorority. Needless to day, it turned out to be a big success!
While you may think of outdoor lighting as simply an aesthetic application, it also has highly practical uses as well. First, outdoor lighting keeps the grounds illuminated come nightfall. Statistically speaking, would-be intruders are much less likely to target a well-lit home than they are to target a non-well-lit home on the very same street. In addition to the added security, there’s always the factor of safety while walking on the property at night. As you can see, there are no dark zones in which you could not see where you’re walking. This reduces the likelihood of someone tripping over a step or other obstruction within the yard itself.
Notice how the property itself is cascading with subtle illumination? This will also create an inviting atmosphere for the homeowners once arriving from class or work. Also, any guests they invite over won’t arrive at a dormant, uninviting atmosphere. It truly takes a professional outdoor lighting system designer to create the perfect, custom-tailored layout for your home’s outdoor lighting system. We work with you to understand your goals for your outdoor lighting, then we create and install the perfect system.
