Spring has officially “sprung” in Kansas City. The sun is shining, birds are chirping, ground is thawing; you get the idea. After our harsh and long winter this year, it is easy to daydream about improvements for your home both inside and out.
Common spring home improvement projects include gutter replacement, upgrading your deck or patio space, mulching and revamping landscaping, roof repair, and siding replacement. One thing missing from this list is the installation of an outdoor lighting system for your home. Check out the top 3 reasons to install a new system or upgrade and add on to your existing system.
Amp up your home’s curb appeal
Every home has a unique beauty that, unfortunately, is lost once the sun goes down. The rustic texture of your brick or stone façade, the craftsman details unique to your front porch, the 50 year old oak trees that sturdily flank your home. These are all of the features that make your home a HOME are the exact same features that are beautifully accentuated when installing an outdoor lighting system. By using architectural, façade, and up-lighting, the lighting professionals at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Kansas City will create a unique lighting plan that highlights the best features of your property.
Increase Safety with Path Lighting
The warm weather of spring and summer also lend itself to more gatherings that can go late into the night. To ensure that your guests are able to safely navigate that tricky top step or uneven path, our team can demo path lighting along any walkway on your property to highlight a safe course to any place your guests may be maneuvering after dark.
An additional safety and security bonus of outdoor lighting is simply the act of illuminating the areas around your home. By eliminating dark corners or places to hide, you are making your property less inviting for any person with dishonest motives.
Make your outdoor spaces work for you
Don’t let all your hard work go to waste! The time and effort spent to perfect your outdoor spaces, garden, landscaping, or pool area could all be for naught if it weren’t for the variety of lighting options our team can provide. Not only will our lighting plan accentuate the features you take the most pride in, it will also provide the perfect setting for any outdoor gathering you plan this year.
