Outdoor lighting creates a welcoming atmosphere for your guests.
Labor Day has come and gone – the last summertime holiday. And while summer’s passing is a little sad (especially for the kids), it does mean that your outdoor time for the year’s remaining holidays should involve less sweating. With the holiday season and milder weather just around the corner, you and your family will certainly be spending more time outdoors in your outdoor living spaces – decks, patios, and gardens. You will probably have a lawn full of kids for Halloween, and your family won’t want to stay cooped up in the house all of Thanksgiving Day. While there will definitely be a nip in the air around Christmas time, part of the magic of that season is experiencing a chill while you linger for a moment outdoors. With all of these important days coming faster than you think, don’t let your yard be unprepared. After all, good lighting is important for holiday effects – even the spookiness of Halloween.
With outdoor lighting, your outdoor spaces remain functional after dark, in addition to inspiring enchantment, relaxation, and warmth. Outdoor lighting is transformative. It enhances beauty that is already there. So what types of lighting can Outdoor Lighting Perspective of Kansas City utilize to make your property the one that stands out this season? Consider these.
Outdoor lighting makes all of your outdoor spaces ready for celebration.
1. Architectural lighting – No one wants to approach a dark home, but with architecture lighting, your home can be illuminated with warm, welcoming light. Well-executed lighting doesn’t draw attention to itself, but rather it makes a home more noticeable. It draws guests and passers-by.
2. Garden/landscape lighting – As fall air causes leaves to turn, our trees and shrubs become as color-filled as paint palettes. Lighting these landscape elements allows them to be visible through the night, and quality landscape lighting will allow true colors to be seen as well.
3. Deck/patio lighting – Holiday celebrations happen in your living spaces, and your outdoor spaces shouldn’t be overlooked. These areas allow your guests to step away from the hustle and bustle of the house and out to be nearer nature. Lighting makes them safe and beautiful at all hours.

4. Path lighting – Be sure when your guests walk around your property they can see where their feet fall. A type of garden lighting, path lights also enhance the look of the area and your experience of the journey, no matter how short.
5. Holiday lighting – Don’t forget the holiday lighting! A hallmark of the holidays, this lighting (typically string lighting) reminds everyone of the festivities of the season. For many, installing this lighting each year is a headache, but we can handle the whole process for you. That way, all you have to do is sit back and celebrate.
So as our final summer holiday ushers in the 2013 holiday season, go ahead and make your lighting plans. Call Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Kansas City. We are ready to take care of all your outdoor lighting needs. And though it may be a bit premature – Happy Holidays!
