Bring Your Home to Life at Night with Outdoor Soffit Lighting

Illuminate Your Home’s Facade Like Never Before with our Designer Approach to Outdoor Soffit Lighting

If you don’t have lights installed on the exterior of your home, it’s common for the height to become lost at night without any illumination. This is especially true when the ground level lights and landscape lighting are on, and your home is two or three stories high. The upper levels of your home might become lost in the dark. To combat this common design problem, at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of St. Louis, we use gutter-mounted lighting instead of soffit lighting. Discover how we can bring your home’s facade to life at night with our unique approach.

How Our Outdoor Lighting Company Uses Outdoor Soffit Lighting

Traditionally, soffit lighting is mounted along the soffits of a home. It is a downlight that highlights the facade of a home. However, there are some major design challenges when it comes to soffit lighting. You have to have a flat roofline to install it. If not, the light shines down on a funny angle and could potentially even make a large illuminated X across your façade. Many homes feature gable roofs, leaving very few places for soffit lighting. Which could lead to major dark spots. None of which is ideal.

To avoid this challenge and provide gorgeous lighting for homes with any roof type, we exclusively (except in very rare instances) use gutter-mounted uplighting. Instead of pointing the soffit lights down alongside your home, we place lighting alongside the ground and point it up.

The uplighting effect helps the light display more evenly throughout your home’s facade and doesn’t create dark patches or harsh bright spots throughout the exterior of your home. It can even capture your home’s entire height! We can adjust the uplighting as needed to ensure your home has just the right amount of light to look amazing at night.
