How Outdoor Lighting Can Extend And Expand Your View And Livable Square Footage

It’s funny how nature works. Months ago, we were enjoying long sunny days and lovely evenings outdoors, and now we’re stuck in the early darkness that winter brings.

With Daylight Saving Time starting at what seems like an eternal two months from now, escape the darkness that surrounds you at the conclusion of each day and step into the light with Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville.

The Glory And Benefits Of Adding Outdoor Lighting Are Well Appreciated Here In Nashville

The addition of outdoor lighting can dramatically expand and extend not only your family’s livable square footage, but also the view from within your home, especially during the dark, drab days of winter.

Without professionally designed and installed outdoor lighting, especially during these winter months, when you look out from your home's interior windows you peer into a dark void. That’s sad and depressing.

Similarly, without outdoor lighting during the outdoor living season, when you look out from those same windows you will still be challenged to clearly see your backyard or outdoor living areas. And with that loss of clear illumination comes a great loss of fresh air leisure time, usability of your backyard and outdoor spaces, and with it, functionality.

As soon as dusk sets in, dark skies will surround you. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

Outdoor Lighting Makes Your Home Feel Larger, Safer And More Secure

We invented the art of residential outdoor lighting and landscape lighting here in Nashville decades ago. At the time, little did we know the tremendous value it would add to the lives of our clients and their families.

By practicing this unique artform in automatically illuminating home exteriors, backyards, and outdoor living spaces, it can be strategically designed and installed to expand your home’s visual footprint – just by looking through your home’s windows. How cool is that?!

The feeling of more space is just one of the many benefits of outdoor lighting – both from inside your home and outside while you enjoy our Nashville nights.

Outdoor Living Lovers Can’t Live Without Our Deck And Patio Lighting

Our professional deck lighting creates a custom look for your outdoor living space with the dramatic play of light and shadows and sets the perfect mood for your outdoor events and gatherings. Our professional deck lighting is achieved by using a combination of lighting styles to accommodate different purposes. The size of the area to illuminate, along with its function, help to determine the types and number of lights you need for your deck lighting. Spotlights can be used in task areas, such as outdoor kitchens, while accent lighting creates a soft, inviting illumination in seating areas. Recessed lighting incorporated into steps and lights placed around walkways and doorways enhance safety.

Outdoor living spaces such as decks and patios are the single most used areas of your home from the onset of spring well into the fall.

A patio is an outdoor space built using pavers, brick, stone or concrete. It’s used for relaxing, recreation or dining. Patios are also often used as pool surrounds or transition areas within the landscape.

With the upscale-style home designs which are abundant in the Nashville area, a patio may also serve as an interior courtyard. Many Nashville residents have patios as a singular outdoor living space or as part of an outdoor living environment which may include a deck or porch. By augmenting its scope and functionality with our outdoor lighting, it just may become your most favorite part of your home.
