What’s the Best Uplighting for My Home?

Are you looking to elegantly illuminate the front of your home and landscape for a nighttime curb appeal? Are you tired of your property falling under a blanket of darkness once the daylight goes?

What is uplighting?

Uplighting is a professional outdoor lighting technique where fixtures are strategically placed on the ground and shine upwards. Uplighting offers flexibility in the range of light, from narrowing in on finer details to creating a beautiful wash of light over a given area. For example, you could use a narrow beam to highlight the angle of your roofline and a wider beam to accentuate the textures and colors of your home’s façade.

Where can you purchase uplighting?

You can buy outdoor lighting fixtures in most Big Box stores. However, if you’re looking for a beautiful nighttime outdoor aesthetic, we recommend a professional uplighting installation.

What’s the difference?

While the fixtures in Big Box stores are significantly less expensive, they are typically mass-produced and made with cheap materials that won’t give you the results you desire or stand the test of time. Over the years, we’ve seen numerous fixtures from Big Box stores that have been bumped or run into by a lawnmower and need to be replaced. It’s not worth the frustration.

Most professional outdoor lighting companies use high-quality fixtures made from copper or brass that are durable and can withstand the elements. When working with a professional outdoor lighting company to install uplighting, you can create a beautiful, upscale nighttime ambiance that aligns with your home and landscape.
