In addition to building a new deck, planting a garden or adding color to an exterior wall, installing outdoor lighting has become a popular addition to the honey-do list.
There is more to installing outdoor lighting than just mounting a few lights over your garage or deck. It may be a good idea to consider having your lights installed by the professionals at Irrigation & Lighting Specialist before biting off more than you can chew. We can give you the right outdoor lighting perspectives you'll need to add a tasteful flare to the exterior of your house.
"I have seen it several times before, a homeowner tries to install outdoor lighting as a do-it-yourself project and they end up doing more harm than good," says John Minor of Irrigation & Lighting Specialist. "Installing outdoor lighting is like an art form. A lot has to go into it and doing it the right way is harder than one may think."
Unique Outdoor Lighting Methods
Irrigation & Lighting Specialist has lighting designers that concentrate on creating subtle overtures and nuances for your outdoor space. This approach ensures that outdoor lighting will increase your home's curb appeal, security and beauty instead of turning it into the Las Vegas Strip.
Too much light can create unwanted light pollution that can create glares, waste energy, wash out the view from the sky or shine into indoor rooms. We use the following outdoor lighting perspectives to prevent this happening to your home:
- Careful light positioning to predict where the majority of the light will shine.
- Shielded bulbs that have reflectors to direct the light where you want it.
- LED lighting to reduce harsh lighting and reduce the amount of energy your lights use.
- Controlled lighting using timers, dimmers or motion sensors can control when and how your light is used depending on your needs.
"Having a professional company install your outdoor lighting really makes a difference," says Minor. "We love taking our customers' outdoor spaces to new, beautiful levels. Avoid the crowded hardware stores, sit back and leave outdoor lighting to the professionals."
