Get the Best Look on Your Block: Upgrade Your Outdoor Lighting System

upgrade outdoor lighting system

When it seems like the world is on fire, sometimes we have to take comfort in what we can control. Is it petty to want your house to be the best-looking one on the block? We don’t think so–we think it’s a way to create a haven of comfort and joy in a world full of unknowns. Let’s talk about how an upgraded outdoor lighting system can help you create a house that looks like the stuff of dreams and is the envy of the neighborhood. 

Show Off Your Home’s Exterior

Let’s start with highlighting all the work you’ve done (or had done) to upgrade and improve your home’s exterior. You care about your house, you take care of it, and you make sure it looks its best. And it does! Everyone can see and appreciate the great taste and proper care that goes into making your house shine… until it gets dark. Then all that can be seen is a big hulking shadow sitting at the end of your driveway. To show off that beautiful exterior after daylight, you need professionally installed home uplighting

There’s a trick to great home uplighting. Sure, it’s not rocket science, and you can find plenty of DIY kits and fixtures at the closest big-box hardware store. But most people don’t understand how many light fixtures you need, how much fixture placement matters, and how to place fixtures properly. You almost always need more fixtures than you think you do. Why? Because too few fixtures create dark spots and shadowy areas across the front of your home. Proper home uplighting creates a uniform look, which is visually appealing and makes your home look its absolute best. With our professional landscape light installation, you get high-quality fixtures–nothing cheap that’s going to break in one season–and we make sure each fixture is installed at the proper distance from your house, with just the right angle. 

Amp Up the Curb Appeal

Excellent home uplighting is the first and necessary step in an outdoor lighting system that makes your home the hottest topic at the next HOA meeting. But why stop there? If you’re going to own the block, own it: add drama, interest, and visual appeal with landscape spotlighting and pathway lights. 

When we install landscape spotlighting, we customize it for the best features of your landscape. A well-placed, perfectly aimed spotlight can make the right things stand out: a beautiful, giant old tree, a perfectly planted bed of annuals, custom hardscaping, statues or decorative objects, manicured shrubs, or even architectural features. What is it that gives your yard, garden, and outdoor spaces such great personality and an elegant feel? Spotlights bring those features the attention they deserve from dusk till dawn. 

Pathway lights are another component of visual appeal, from the curb all the way to the door. First, pathway lights give your home’s exterior a finished look. They delineate different walkways and spaces. They also provoke curiosity; where does that line of lights lead? What’s at the end of that gently curving, softly lit pathway disappearing around the side of the house? Second, pathway lights create a sense of welcome for everyone who enters your property. They lead people along the perfect path, ensuring that guests get the best view from the very beginning of their visit. 

Invest in Quality for the Best Look

There are outdoor light fixtures, and then there are high-quality, contractor-grade, extended-warranty outdoor light fixtures. Is there a difference? Yes. Can you see the difference? Also yes. The better the light fixtures, the longer they last, and the more options you have. That means you have more materials, finishes, and styles to choose from, so you can choose the fixtures with the perfect style to complement your home’s architecture and colors. Choose from sleek black, minimal fixtures for a modern style, or classical, solid brass for a more traditional look–or from a wide variety of styles in between. You can also choose fixtures which will adapt as needed to the changing conditions of your yard and outdoor spaces. 

When we install a new outdoor lighting system, we offer a discounted annual maintenance plan to ensure that your entire system keeps looking its best, season after season. High-quality fixtures are going to last longer, look better, and keep your home looking its best, too. 

We’re here to help you achieve your goal with the best lighting systems, highest-quality fixtures and components, customized designs, and on-call maintenance. Get in touch to talk over a customized design for the perfect outdoor lighting system to make your house the show-stopper you know it is.
