Get your outdoor living areas game ready for the 2014 sports season with outdoor lighting.
August is in full swing. That means back-to-school and the beginning of the sports season, and here in Kansas City, we take our college sports seriously – especially football. Whether you are a K-State, KU or even a MU fan, you will be turning on the TV, donning the colors, setting out the hot wings, and cheering until your voice is gone. For me, I have one of each in my house, we’re a confused household. No matter your school, be sure that your deck, patio,
cabana bar, or outdoor kitchen are ready for game time by adding Kansas City outdoor lighting. After all, you want to focus on what’s important not a fumbled plate or drink. Being sure these areas have adequate visibility will improve the experience for all.
Okay, so outdoor lighting it is, but what kind? After all you’ve heard plenty about the differences between LED and halogen lighting. Actually, some people are very staunch in their opinions regarding which of these is best. Some love the newer, energy-efficient LEDs while others champion the tried-and-true halogen. Sounds very much like a certain K-State/KU rivalry! Just like these teams, LED and halogen outdoor lighting have their strengths and weaknesses. For example, an LED outdoor lighting system will cost much less to operate than its halogen counter part. However, the halogen system will be less expensive to install initially. Which is best? Like our Kansas sports teams, the “best” outdoor lighting type is based on your preferences.
Which type wins the LED vs. Halogen rivalry? You decide.
Of course just as with your favorite team, you want your outdoor lighting to be the best. You want it to stand out from the rest. Each school has its own uniqueness that makes it special; WILDCATS purple pride, JAYHAWKS chanting Rock Chalk Jayhawk or TIGERS yelling MIZ..ZOU, specialty outdoor lighting from Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Kansas City is also unique and excellent.Our designers create outdoor lighting tailored to your distinctive property and outdoor living spaces.
