Happy New Year everyone! We at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives hope you have a great 2015!
New Year’s marks the end of the holiday season. It’s time to take down your trees and put the reindeer away, but it doesn’t have to mean that all the lights need to go back in the box. Festive lighting can be used in different applications all year round. At Outdoor Lighting Perspectives, we design and install lighting systems that include more than the common landscape lights.
The most common holiday lighting product is string lights. Indoor and outdoors, they instantly make a space more cheerful and festive for the holidays. They come in a variety of colors and sizes for all types of installations. And while they may be synonymous with the holidays, string lights can be used in all seasons. We install high-quality, high-preforming string lights in a lot of our clients’ back yards. While they can still properly illuminate outdoor living spaces, string lights are still fun! They can be wrapped around deck railings or trees or can be hung over across a space.
Many of our holiday lighting clients like wrapping some of their properties’ trees in lights, but some like a different installation that also works all year round: the lighting globes. Lighting globes are illuminated spheres that are hung on different branches as different heights in trees or sometimes in porches. While we wouldn’t substitute them for landscape lights for general outdoor lighting, they are whimsical and visually interesting.
These are just two examples of holiday lighting products that can be used all the time, but there are more. Take inventory of your lights before taking them down to see if you are interested in using them in another way.
We at OLP just don’t like to see the light go away at the end of the holiday season. Whether it’s reusing your holiday lights or reaching out to an outdoor lighting company to install permanent landscape lights, it’s nice not to go home to a dark house.
If you’re considering adding lights to your property, please contact your local Outdoor Lighting Perspectives office.
And again, Happy New Year!
