As the experts in outdoor lighting in Midlothian, Manakin Sabot and the Greater Richmond area, we at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives pride ourselves on providing our clients with beautiful lighting systems that accentuate their properties. Each homeowner has different needs, tastes and budget meaning that each lightscape should be unique. A custom lighting design ensures that when the projects is complete, you’re happy with the results. Here’s how we do it:
It starts with a complimentary lighting consultation. One of our trained lighting designers will visit your property, walk all around it and get a feel for the architecture, landscaping and outdoor living spaces. We’ll discuss with you what you’d like to see in the finished project. It’s important to us that the goal is clear so we can properly design a system for you. A homeowner looking to increase the safety of the property, for example, will be looking for something different than the homeowner who wants to extend the time they can spend on their new deck.
While discussing what you’d like to see in the design, our consultant will also make recommendations into what should be added. Illuminating walkways, steps and stairs is an example of something we may suggest adding to ensure your property is safe for friends and family.
After the consultation, our designer will map out the system keeping the conversation in mind. One of our mottos is a beautiful outdoor lighting system is about the effect, not the fixtures, so don’t be alarmed if you don’t see a ton of lights on our initial plan. We don’t want the eye to go to the fixture itself so we use only the amount needed to achieve your goals.
Our design isn’t done with that map, nor is it done when the installation is complete. A few days after installation, you may see us drive by the property at night to make sure everything is as it should be. Nighttime adjustments – maybe a fixture needs to be moved ever so slightly, or a specific fixture needs more or less output – are the icing on the cake. By seeing everything illuminated, we can rest easy that the design is perfect and your needs are being met.
