As many homeowners know, there seems to always be something you can do to the house and property. Whether it is adding new landscaping, repainting a room or a bigger project like renovating your kitchen, homeowners may be looking to add value to the home or just make it a little more comfortable for them.
When it comes to the outside of the home, we at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Richmond aim to increase the curb appeal of properties for not only the owners, but also neighbors, friends, family and potential buyers. To show you the difference that professionally designed and installed architectural lighting can make, here is one OLP project:
Here is what the property looked like at night before we started working with the family. As you can see, even with some of the indoor lights on the house and yard looks dark. Although the house is stunning, it cannot be appreciated after the sun goes down.
That is until we helped them…
And here is what the home looks like now. All the details can now be seen easily. Our trained designers visited the property to design the perfect system for this home. When creating the design, we first looked at the special details of the property. The numerous peaks and the stonework are standout features that needed to be illuminated. Architectural wash lighting was placed at the base of the home, shooting light upward.
The fixtures are placed strategically to effective illuminate the façade, but also so as not to blind anyone looking out the windows. We never want to blind anyone with light.
In addition to façade lighting we added a few path lights to add security and safety to the front walkway. Now visitors can clearly see where they are stepping as they walk up to the property.
