Outdoor Lighting Can Substantially Increase Your Home’s Perceived Value

outdoor lighting Columbia SCDid you know that by simply adding outdoor lighting to your home you can increase its perceived value by nearly 20%? In a time when many new home buyers are shopping at night, you’ve really got to stand out. It seems that people forget that a lot of potential home buyers do view homes after dark; outdoor lighting can make a huge impact.

In order to obtain the most effective bang for your buck, it’s extremely important to rely upon a professional outdoor lighting company. At Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Columbia we know that the key to curb appeal starts with an excellent outdoor lighting system design. It’s very important to take into account which areas of your home are the most important to focus upon.

Columbia SC outdoor lightingHere are some helpful tidbits we normally recommend:

• Reduce the wattage in your fixtures.

Your outdoor lighting system doesn’t need to be visible from outer space. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Columbia offers a variety of LED fixtures that provide for energy savings and fantastic results. Even if you have a current halogen system, we are capable of retrofitting it to an LED system.

• Your front walkway is not always the most important area of your home.

Time and time again we see houses where they simply went to one of the “big box” stores for a set of solar powered fixtures to light their walkway. Those lights will work for a year or two, maybe. More importantly, they don’t illuminate the home adequately. Take the whole home’s illumination into account.

outdoor lighting Columbia SC• Lights that are too bright can make anything look bad.

How many times, especially around the holidays, have you seen multiple spotlights pointed directly at the front of a house? The light is often so intense it nearly looks like a spaceship. This type of lighting doesn’t allow for the multitude of shadows and silhouettes that can be obtained through a professionally designed and installed outdoor lighting system.

Through our free nighttime demonstration, we can show you which areas of your home need more lighting than others. We will set up temporary lights that will allow you to see immediately how your home will look with an outdoor lighting system. We will place the lighting fixtures in different areas to show you which areas of your home could and should be used as focal points and take your input into account. When looking to increase your home’s curb appeal through investing in an outdoor lighting system, it’s best to leave the heavy lifting to the professionals.

What Is Required to Light a Stunning Columbia SC Brick Home?

outdoor lighting Columbia SCAn attractive front-of-home outdoor lighting system isn’t made by putting a couple lights in the ground. It’s not made by shining bright spotlights at the house or spotlighting one or two focal areas. Great outdoor lighting starts with a great design.

A truly great design will take into account the home’s facade both horizontally and vertically. You want to see the home’s facade from end to end and top to bottom. In the photo to the right, for instance, we took care not only to install lights on the ground but to also illuminate the upper levels to highlight the area above the portico as well as the dormers and even the beautiful trim below the roofline.

outdoor LED lighting Columbia SCAnother important part of this lighting design was the pathway lighting. When walking along a path, you don’t want to think about possibly tripping over unseen obstacles. You want to arrive safely and never give it a second thought. This property has a serpentine path and we chose strategic spots along the bends to guide owners and guests effortlessly from the driveway to the house and back.

Columbia SC outdoor lightingWhat does it take to light a stunning brick home? All great outdoor lighting starts with a well thought out design by a highly trained and experienced outdoor lighting designer. You want your outdoor lighting designer to take into account everything from function to illuminating the right areas and even taking into account safety and security.
