Make Your Home Shine with Custom Landscape Lighting
What does your home look like after the sun goes down? Do the beautiful architecture and noteworthy details get lost in the dark? Can anyone appreciate your beautiful mature trees? Does your property look foreboding or inviting?
You put significant effort and expense into both the inside and outside of your home. Last month we talked about how lighting automation and LED technology could transform the look and feel of your home. This month, we want to talk about how you can do the same with the outside of your property. As we’ve said before, never underestimate the power of light’s ability to change the way you view, use, and appreciate your Chicago, IL home. Keep reading to learn more about landscape lighting and automation to make your home as beautiful on the outside as it is inside.
Want to bring the beauty out of the darkness? Bullet lights are perfect for drawing attention to detail. You can use them to uplight a tree, an entry gate, an outdoor sculpture, or other noteworthy detail. Bullet lights can be focused or spread a wider circle of light depending on the need.
Need to illuminate a unique outside wall or a portion of a landscape? A wash light is a compact solution that is easy to fit in many areas. Wash lights are excellent for adding a layer of light with other lighting to create an overall effect.
Path lights serve dual purposes, adding both aesthetic beauty and safety. Make your home more inviting with softly lit paths to entries while also making it safer for visitors at night. Well done path lighting also shows off your landscape and shrubs along your paths.
Also adding beauty and safety, lights add a dramatic effect to steps. Add them to steps to your front entry or deck and patio steps in your backyard. You can even make your steps appear to almost float in the dark with well-designed step lighting.
Niche lights are small and practical and can be fit into tight spaces. They are excellent for stone paths or can create unique lighting effects on decks. Be creative, and there’s virtually no limit to how you can add flair to your outdoors.
