Choose What You Want to Highlight
You don’t want your entire house to be spotlighted, so it’s important to choose what elements that you want to focus on. If you have lovely landscaping or a gorgeous walkway, consider adding some landscape lights to highlight those aspects of your home. If your whole yard is lit up like Christmas, it will just seem like overkill. Choose a few elements that you want to highlight for a tasteful yet beautiful outdoor landscape design. Of course, if you have no idea where to start, come to Red Deer Lighting Center and one of our professional staff members will be happy to assist you and answer any questions that you may have.
Think About Color Temperature
When you’re choosing the right lighting scheme for your outdoor space, color temperature may seem small and trivial, but it can completely define your new lighting design. A cool temperature will appear bluish and comes across as harsh. It will also create stark shadows and even make your home seem menacing. When choosing the color temperature for your front yard or walkway, it’s best to always pick the warmer end of the spectrum. Warm light will imitate sunlight and add a lovely glow to your home and foliage.
LED and Solar-Powered Lighting
Once you’ve chosen the lighting design for your landscaping and home, it’s important to choose LED or solar-powered lights. LED lights come in a wide variety of color temperatures and mimic the glow and ambiance of incandescent lighting. These bulbs also remain cool to the touch, so there is no risk of fires. If you choose solar-powered lights, you need to make sure to place them where they can get plenty of sunshine during the day so they can be completely powered up when the sun sets. While either of these options may be a bit more expensive at the front end, they’ll definitely pay for themselves over time. If you need help choosing the right form of landscape lighting, you can always call us or stop by our Red Deer Lighting Center showroom for assistance.
