Replace, Reposition or Upgrade Your Memphis Outdoor Lighting System

Have you ever made a major purchase after much thought and preparation about how it was going to look and affect your life.? Have you ever been disappointed in the results but know it was a major undertaking and you thought you would get used to it after you lived with it a while? And did you? Or does it still make you cringe every time you look at it? Situations like this do happen and if you have been in this situation with your outdoor lighting system, don’t fret. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Memphis can help you love the way your home and outdoor living spaces look with some small tweaks.

 

Unique architectural features give us the chance to be creative.

Unique architectural should be highlighted with outdoor lighting.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Memphis has been custom designing and installing landscape lighting systems for over 15 years. Our experience has taught us that most existing systems don’t need to be completely redone and can benefit from one of three procedures outlined below.

 

Replace

Your system may look unbalanced to you and that can happen if fixtures are not installed to illuminate from left to right and bottom to top. Inexperienced installers may not know the best way to highlight an architectural feature or light darkened corners. Being in the field every day has taught us the best way to enhance features, textures and dimensions of your home and landscaping.

You may have an adequate amount of fixtures but your halogen bulbs may be burnt out or ending their life cycle. Halogen bulbs begin to dim  until they actually burn out and need to be replaced every year or so. Burnt out bulbs can also make your system look unbalanced. If that is the case, be sure you are replacing with a comparable wattage bulb so you don’t over task your fixture. It’s best to replace all your halogen bulbs at the same time so you don’t see a drop in the output from some that are nearing the end of their life cycle.

 

Thank you to our clients who continue to let us create beautiful scenes like this!

Plant growth may dictate repositioning of fixtures.

Reposition

When your system was installed your shrubs and trees may have been newly planted. After a couple of years you may notice that the fixtures are not illuminating the same way or the light beam may be covered completely from this overgrowth. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Memphis can easily reposition or even redesign your system to make it work with your foliage. We can also add on to system if additional lighting is needed.

 

Upgrade

If you’ve been thinking about LED outdoor lighting, now is a great time to upgrade. You won’t have to worry about replacing bulbs every year because LEDs last up to 50,000 hours and are much more energy efficient than their halogen counterparts. Where the do compare is in the look. Our LEDs give off a warm light that is virtually indistinguishable from halogen. You won’t get that stark blueish tint with our technologically advanced LEDs. And because they use less wattage, more fixtures can be added on to your existing transformer.

Can you tell the difference?

Can you tell the difference?

If you aren’t satisfied with your Memphis outdoor lighting system, give Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Memphis a call. We can replace, reposition or upgrade your system to make you fall in love with the look of your home and outdoor living spaces. Give us a call today.

Begin with a Bang – Dramatic Entrance Lighting for your Memphis Home

Path lights set the tone for your entire front yard

Path lights set the tone for your entire front yard

First impressions are everything. Regardless of how amazing and wonderful something is, if it has a poor beginning, chances are no one will see it through. Outdoor lighting on your home follows the same pattern. Your backyard could be simply marvelous. But if the front of your home is less than appealing, who is going to want to check out the rest? Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Memphis wants you to keep the entrance to your home in mind. Without a strong, stunning display in the front of your home, everything else will fall flat.

When I talk about entrance lighting, I’m including the area from the edge of your front yard to your front door. This is the area people will first come in contact with. This part needs to be dramatic in order to set the perfect tone for the entire home. Illuminate walkways and driveways with path lights to achieve ultimate aesthetic beauty. When installed by the professionals, they can gingerly guide your guests along with a soft, welcoming glow. These lights are to be staggered on either side of the driveway or pathway, avoiding the look of an airport runway. Trusting a professional company to design your outdoor lighting system will ensure a clean, quality look. A well-lit pathway is the keystone to making the front of your home awe and amaze.

No outdoor lighting design is complete without entrance lighting.

No outdoor lighting design is complete without entrance lighting.

Forgetting about the importance of the entry way to your home can be extremely detrimental to the entire look. When someone puts all their time and effort into the backyard or the immediate exterior of their home and nowhere else, the entire ensemble is hindered. You want the complete package. You want your home looking like it came right out of a magazine. While displaying your home’s proud columns and illuminating its unique texture is important, excluding the driveway, pathway, or entryway to your home compromises everything. Don’t fall into that trap. Treat the entrance to your home as a special, vital part of the design process and get a complete result.

Call Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Memphis today. We’ll design the perfect outdoor lighting system for your home. We understand the importance of a dramatic entrance that will give friends and family something to talk about. Your first impression will be one that’ll set the stage for greatness.

Landscape Lighting from the Big Box Store? Hold on Just a Minute Before Making that Purchase!

If you’ve strolled down the aisles of your local big box store, you’ve probably come across a sale on “high-quality garden/landscape lighting” fixtures. While it may look like a great deal, you need to take account of whether or not this is a project you feel comfortable undertaking. Do you know how bright the lighting fixtures are? Do you know if they’re adjustable? Do you know where to start? These may sound like funny questions, but they’re very real and can be cumbersome to the novice lighting installer. It’s for these reasons that you should call the professionals if your end goal is to make your home look nicer after sunset.

Revamp Your System To Make It Last With First-Class Outdoor Lighting Fixtures

Fall is almost already in full swing, which means it’s time for your outdoor lighting to take center stage and really show off your home when the sun goes down. At Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Memphis, there’s always a rush this time of year as residents decide to revamp their systems for the longer fall nights.

For example, we recently finished a complete redesign for a client in order to replace some older, cheaper materials he had previously installed. He had hosted a big event years ago, so he went out to his local hardware store and made a fairly large investment in some cheaper fixtures. He also ended up designing and installing his outdoor lighting himself.

When to upgrade outdoor lighting

Upgrade your outdoor lighting before it’s overgrown by changing landscape features.

Unfortunately, it didn’t last. For one, the fixtures he chose weren’t as high quality as they should have been, so they started to fade, chip and peel after only a couple of years. Another issue was that as the trees and other landscaping on his property grew and changed, his outdoor lighting design became out of date, casting unflattering shadows and light on his house that needed to be fixed.

When he called Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Memphis, it was an easy fix. We only use top-quality materials, such as our copper fixtures that won’t fade or peel. In fact, these first-class fixtures actually react with the elements to transform into a beautiful patina finish over the years. We also redesigned his system to focus more on the impressive architectural features of his home rather than the landscaping around his house, so even as things grow and change around it, he can count on his home to always look its best.

Memphis Outdoor Lighting

Call an expert to design a better look that’s built to last with professional outdoor lighting.

When all was said and done, our client had 69 brand new fixtures and a revamped outdoor lighting design that gave his home a dramatic and beautiful nighttime makeover built to last.

Is it time for you to consider revamping your own outdoor lighting system? Here are just a few reasons to call Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Memphis to talk about an upgrade:

  • Changes around the house. Like the client discussed above, you’ve probably noticed some changes in your home’s landscaping and other features over the years. Or, if you’ve recently renovated parts of the house, make sure those upgrades get noticed at night with an expert outdoor lighting design.
  • Upgrade fixtures. If you installed some cheaper outdoor lighting yourself like our client above, you’ll probably start to notice some wear and tear fairly quickly. Invest in better quality fixtures now that are built to last rather than overspending on materials you’ll just have to replace every couple of years.
  • Upgrade to LED. The benefits of switching to LED outdoor lighting are endless. In addition to a brighter, more spectacular view of your home, LEDs offer environmentally friendly benefits, a longer life than halogen bulbs and energy-efficiencies that will save you money.
  • More. Take advantage of the opportunity to show off your house during the longer nights this season by scheduling a free expert consultation. We’ll pinpoint the perfect outdoor lighting fixtures and placements to revamp your home and make it last.

Call Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Memphis today to find out how you can show off your home and get the most out of your outdoor lighting this fall.
