Why Your Historic Home Deserves an Updated Lighting System

Posted on June 2, 2017 by John Bruce

home lightingHow many of your neighbors have been inside your home? Let’s face it. Most people see your home from the outside 99% of the time. That’s why it’s important to keep the exterior as up to date as you would the interior. One of the biggest problems with historic and older homes is that they quickly look ragged and ill-maintained without fresh, updated outdoor illumination. By replacing your outdoor lighting system, you’ll increase your home’s curb appeal and ensure that your home looks stately and historic, not old and outdated.

Upgrade for Aesthetics and Energy Savings

Older illumination systems, especially those made from aluminum, may look great at first but corrode over time and make homes look dilapidated. Aluminum and plastic fixtures are known to rust, bubble, and fade, decreasing the face value of your home. These older systems also generally contain outdated elements that use a lot of energy and increase your electric bill.

Convert to LED

In some cases, older lighting fixtures remain in good physical condition. If this is the case with your home, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Kansas City can convert the lights from energy-hungry halogens to modern LED’s. LED’s consume an average of 80% less energy than their halogen cousins and last over 50,000 hours without any problems. LED’s will keep your house looking great and your wallet happy.

Entire Outdoor Lighting Upgrade

If your home’s current lighting system has begun to look ragged or worn out, it’s time to upgrade your entire system. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives can swap out your aluminum or plastic fixtures for our high-quality, American-made copper and brass fixtures. These fixtures will give your older or historic home a much-needed facelift, offering a brand new, fresh look that will last for years.

Create Beautiful Effects with Custom Lighting

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives provides sophisticated illumination solutions for all of your outdoor needs. Our outdoor lights aren’t just for practical reasons like safety. We consider your home our canvas and our lights our paint. We can adjust the distance and width of light beams, direct them into trees, down the facade of your home, or over your outdoor kitchen, deck, or patio for truly stunning effects.

If you have outdoor sculptures, water features, or gardens, we use focal lighting to illuminate them and draw the eye to them. We even offer a variety of colors that can create moods and can be used to decorate for the holidays as well. We will make your home look absolutely beautiful at night!
