What does your ideal outdoor lighting installation look like? This is a broad question, but an important one. As a homeowner, one of your responsibilities is to make your home supremely livable and beautiful for you and your family. Such an undertaking can be difficult to get your head around, though. After all, there are so many components you can add to your home!
One thing is for certain: perhaps the best option for improving at-home life is outdoor lighting. When night falls, your property’s usability drops dramatically, limiting most activities to the indoors. No more hosting gatherings, relaxing with friends outdoors, or even traversing your property safely when the sun sets. However, this doesn’t have to be the case, as this property owner discovered.
As the premier source for outdoor lighting solutions, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives works with clients all over the St. Louis area. Often, customers learn of our services from their neighbors, which is exactly what occurred with this client. After refreshing their neighbor’s outdated system, our services immediately caught the attention of this homeowner, who was in a similar situation. Over the years, lighting systems can encounter abundant maintenance issues, slowly degrading in overall quality, effectiveness, and beauty. Even with partial refurbishment, the years take a toll, especially on older systems built with antiquated technology. We know this problem well, which is why we offer comprehensive lighting replacement services to bring vibrancy back to customer properties. So, what changes and additions did we make to this incredible property?
Essentially, we built everything back from the ground up, beginning with the home’s pathway. Using specialized tools and installation techniques, we installed our custom LED pathway lighting fixtures directly into the existing brick. Doing so without damage is difficult, but there’s just something so satisfying about lighting elements installed flush with the ground. They make pathways look sleek and add a nice touch of flare.
Next up? Curb appeal lighting. Every home has its own unique features, and this customer’s home is no different. With the help of our professional design consultants, we work with you to determine your favorite curb appeal lighting orientation, ensuring your home’s fine façade is displayed with just the right amount of light and at the right angle. For anyone looking to display their home’s glorious appearance, curb appeal lighting is essential. An added benefit is that it can highlight surrounding landscaping, too!
Landscape lighting is also great for adding depth to dark backyards, which was the case with this client. Dark yards create a cavernous space that can feel unwelcoming, but as you can see in the above image, strategically placed landscape lighting elements eliminate murky blackness and illuminates your landscaping’s best features. Further, all our lighting elements are built with quality materials like copper, bronze, stainless steel, and others that can withstand punishment from the weather.
For the property’s finishing touch, this client requested festive string lighting to illuminate the overhead space on their patio. Unlike traditional bulbs, our string lighting is very durable and is built to endure strong weather events. Add that to the magical aura these lights provide for spending time outside and you’ve got a recipe for success!
All our lighting elements utilize LED lights, which dramatically reduce energy costs in comparison to traditional halogen bulbs. Not only will lighting installations from OLP dramatically improve visibility and aesthetics on your property, but they will also reduce the energy burden on your wallet when compared to traditional lighting options.
Your ideal lighting installation doesn’t have to be the stuff of dreams. With our help, you can illuminate your property in a new light.
