Let's Talk Lights
Every wondered why some people's homes seem to SHINE at night? They appear elegant long after the sun sets? Let's unlock the key to perfect outdoor lighting:
Planning: The first step lies in conversations from the beginning. Architects will take the time to include lighting plans as part of both the exterior plans and the landscape outlay. See our post on 'planning' if you missed out. https://www.wtoutdoorliving.com/single-post/2017/12/05/Free-Lighting-Demo
If you own a home where lighting was not considered as part of the initial plan, it is certainly possible to add lighting after the build.
Nowadays, it is common to have lights secured exclusively in-ground. In this case, you're not missing out if you don't have built-in exterior lights.
Nite Time Decor, one of WT Outdoor Living's vendors, is a well recognized brand in outdoor lighting. The visual effects page listed below helps home owners envision what TYPE of outdoor lighting they might prefer.
For example, ask yourself this:
Do I want to light a large area or mainly near the close proximity of the home?
What lighting color scheme best fits my exterior? Consider your brick color, stucco color, or stone may all color cast with different lighting.
Asking these, among other questions, will help assist your architect or lighting planner with the right direction to go.
