Charlotte exterior lighting is a concept that has been growing strong for 20 years. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte has been illuminating homes across the greater Charlotte area during all that time. Have we reached your home yet? In any given Charlotte neighborhood, the homes with professional exterior lighting stand out as the most beautiful at night. We hope your home is one of those. If not, please give us a call so we can make your home as beautiful at night as it is in the daytime.
Everyone can see that your home is beautiful in the daytime, but it takes professionally designed and installed exterior lighting to show it off at night. Exterior lighting, sometimes called architectural lighting, is not for the do-it-yourselfer. The trained and experienced lighting designers with Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte use specific lighting techniques and equipment to achieve the most beautiful effects. Where we can, we work with shrubbery lining your home’s façade, and we also use stand-alone fixtures. We’re careful not to shine lights directly into your windows! Our lighting technicians will carefully angle each light fixture just right to highlight dramatic elements of your home’s exterior whether it’s made of stone, brick, siding or stucco. We find the perfect balance of light and shadow to draw out your home’s best features.
Hand-in-hand with architectural lighting, landscape lighting will pull back the dark curtain and reveal the beauty of your property at night. A favorite tree, the gardens you have carefully nurtured or a line of hedges cradling your driveway—with landscape lighting we selectively illuminate beautiful features in your yard. Instead of lighting almost everything, we carefully choose those elements of your landscape that can be illuminated most effectively. This is where our artful design talent comes into play. Much like an interior designer, an exterior lighting designer makes an artistic statement using your home and landscape as a canvas. Water features such fountains and ponds with waterfalls are especially beautiful with the soft glow of subtle outdoor lighting, as are outdoor fireplaces. If you have statues in your yard, or any other type of yard art, those are perfect candidates for outdoor lighting.
With Charlotte exterior lighting your family can feel safer in your home at night. Would-be intruders avoid well-illuminated homes. Outdoor lighting, strategically placed, removes the dark shadows where potential intruders would hide. When those intruders see that your neighbors can observe every move they make, your home becomes less appealing as a target. If you have security cameras, exterior lighting will help ensure clearer images.
We differentiate safety lighting from security lighting to speak directly about safe footing, for example, from the car to the door. Additional lighting is extremely beneficial there, along your pathways and up your front or back steps. When used as a part of a landscape lighting design, we call this form of lighting path lighting. Stepping stones can be especially treacherous at night because they tend to shift and become uneven over time. If you have a pool, you definitely want to remove tripping hazards by illuminating the path from pool to house with subtle but effective path lights. You know how tiny feet like to run back to the house from the pool! We also recommend adding tiny deck lights on your deck stair risers for deck safety. Improve your peace of mind with exterior lighting for the safety of your family and your guests.
The deck, the patio, the pool area—all of these become safer with even a small amount of illumination. What’s wonderful is the same lights can be used to create a warm and welcoming ambiance for your outdoor living spaces. When we add just the right amount of lighting here, you’ll be amazed at how much more time you spend enjoying these areas at night.
You could call it nighttime curb appeal. If you’re planning to sell your home, create additional value first with a professionally-installed outdoor lighting system. This is when Charlotte exterior lighting pays for itself. Your real estate agent will be impressed, and your efforts may practically sell the house for them.
