It’s been said before, and it likely will be said again, but at NightVision Outdoor Lighting, we believe exterior lighting is all about the effect, as opposed to the fixtures.
When we create an exterior lighting design for our Atlanta homeowners, we look to illuminate all the key aspects of their property, sometimes without using many light fixtures.
After all, it only takes a few of the right fixtures (when they are installed properly) to make a world of difference for your home’s outdoor appeal. Here are some examples:
Enhancing a Brick Home With Outdoor Accent Lighting
If you requested outdoor lighting for your brick home, we would design a lighting system to ensure your home’s best features were beautifully up-lit , in order to enhance the texture and color of the bricks.
Additionally, we would make sure a nearby tree in your front yard was illuminated as well for an even better effect.
Surprisingly, this would only take approximately 5 LED lights to make a home such as this shine at night. The reason it would only require so few fixtures is because we would use the right fixtures; thus, giving you the right effect.
LED lights would be our choice for a brick home, as it would provide the best look and make the brick appear warm and inviting.
The usual misconception about LED is that it can look bluish-white, however this is simply just a myth. The best part of LED lighting though, is it is very cost-effective in the long run and requires little to no maintenance.
Enhancing Safety and Visual Appeal With Pathway Lighting
Path lights are, by far, the most over-used fixtures seen today. We’ve all seen the walkways that look similar to airport runways with long rows of lights on either side of them. That is bad exterior lighting.
For good pathway lighting that is well designed you will see that the entire path is well-lit in order to ensure safe footing. And, while you can easily see the path, your eyes will not bounce to to all of the fixtures that are doing the lighting, as there won’t be an over abundance of fixtures.
At NightVision Outdoor Lighting, we’re firm believers in using the most subtle path lights. Not only does this provide the best look, but fixtures like these have a wide light spread, meaning not very many are needed.
Quality Exterior Lighting Systems in Atlanta
When looking at an exterior lighting system, if your eyes go to the fixture before the effect, this is a sign that there is a flaw somewhere in the design.
