A Basic Guide for Charlotte Outdoor Lighting

For as long as outdoor lighting has been in existence, homeowners have been exploring the different lighting options for their homes. Different effects, shapes and styles have come and gone, but designers still implement the same basic principals to evoke the highly desirable, "Ahhhh" factor.

These design elements are used to create attention and to transform a dull exterior into an eye-popping masterpiece. In addition to this, they also add security and safety while enhancing the usability of your home. There is no wonder why Charlotte outdoor lighting projects are more popular than ever. 

"Outdoor lighting techniques have really grown over the last decade," said John Minor of Irrigation and Lighting Specialist. "New technology and techniques have really enabled homeowners to do magical things with their exteriors. When outdoor lighting is applied correctly, it can have a more positive impact than any other home improvement project."

Principals of Charlotte Outdoor Lighting

When designing an outdoor lighting system, keep in mind the following key principals of outdoor lighting: 
  • Depth - Refers to how far the viewer's gaze travels as they observe a home. By using depth properly and strategically, our expert designers are able to control the viewer's gaze and primary focus. 
  • Perspective - Think of your outdoor space as a three-dimensional canvas for light. You can create visual interest from different viewpoints and angles around your home's landscape and exterior. 
  • Focal Points - During the observation experience, focal points are grab the viewers attention. They are used to guide the viewer through the landscape, step by step. 
  • Direction and Quality - Use outdoor lights to "paint" the landscape surrounding your home with various lighting intensities, directions and accents. Our designers use this to reach moods, great visual impact and to highlight your home and landscape's natural beauty. 
At Irrigation and Lighting Specialist, we've developed our own signature system of applying these design principals. We take a different approach by not only focusing on how you can use the space outside your home, but what kind of lighting delivers the absolute best accents to the landscape and beauty of your home.
