Outdoor Lighting Fall 2021
The Earlier Sunsets came on fast this year. We are all adjusting to our new normals whether you are back at the office, shuttling kids to events and practices or getting dinners on the table.
No doubt your outdoor lighting has become more important and you are aware of its shortcomings so...LET'S MAKE THE CHANGES!
While you still have soft soil in the Northern States, we recommend getting that new Landscape Lighting planned and installed ASAP so that you can also get your new grass seed to take hold!
So, let's take a look at some ideas and see what you would like to incorporate.
Often times you will require hanging lights, wall lights and post lights in the same area of your outdoor spaces. Work with what you have and what is needed. Most outdoor lighting will come in a family of products or mix and match with similar color scheme.
While designing your outdoor lighting plan, be sure to choose the locations of your lighting strategically and with the long-term protection of each feature in mind.
Ideally, your outdoor lighting components should be placed in spots that will protect them from the elements while still giving them enough room to transform your outdoor space with the right type of light. For example, lights that are attached to your home can be installed underneath overhangs to protect them from moisture. Alternatively, porch lighting can be Pendants, chandeliers, fans or recessed to keep bulbs hidden away and protected within your porch ceiling.
