Outdoor Lighting Done Right: Dimmers are a Must for Proper Outdoor String Lighting Installation

Professionally designed and installed outdoor lighting offers a long list of benefits when compared to DIY. At Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Wilmington, outdoor lighting is ALL we do. The benefit of that fact cannot be over-stated.

Day in and day out for years we are installing outdoor lighting systems. The sheer volume and variety of fixtures and systems we install provide us with a breadth of experience that leads to the most intelligent lighting design and avoidance of common issues.

One after-installation issue homeowners don’t plan for is the brightness of their new outdoor lighting. Light temperature (or brightness) of your outdoor lighting shouldn’t be an effort to reproduce full afternoon sunlight. Soft, subtle lighting is how to create a tranquil and enjoyable outdoor living space.

Do they contradict the gorgeous glow of your fire pit flames?
